Once you make homemade Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter, you will never want the store-bought kind again. Made with raw almonds, honey, cinnamon, and coconut oil, it’s the perfect wholesome topping for gluten-free blueberry waffles!
CINNAMON HONEY ALMOND BUTTER
Making homemade almond butter is actually one of the easiest things to do. It requires just four ingredients and a few minutes of prep.
It’s as simple as adding the ingredients to a food processor and processing until it forms butter. You do need a powerful food processor for this though.
The wonderful thing about almond butter is it’s gluten-free, making it perfect for anyone on a strict gluten-free diet. I’m not on a gluten-free regime but I do like to enjoy wholesome foods as often as I can.
This recipe is flavored with cinnamon and honey but you could jazz it up any way you like!
START THE NEW YEAR ON A WHOLESOME NOTE
I’ve talked about this before and I’ll do it again. I can’t do breakfast. It’s really difficult for me to eat first thing in the morning but I know it’s important for me to do so.
I’m not a fan of heavy meals for breakfast so I usually reach for a banana or yogurt. While this may seem like a good idea, it’s actually not enough to give me the energy I need first thing in the morning.
Since waffles were always a childhood favorite, I figured I could try to start eating those for breakfast. My local Meijer store carries Van’s Blueberry Gluten Free Waffles and I knew they would be delicious topped with almond butter.
I think I found a way to make sure I eat breakfast every day. These waffles are delicious!
