What’s better than homemade almond butter? I think caffeinated almond butter. Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter. Coffee-spiked almond butter dotted with little specks of heady vanilla, sweetened with brown sugar, and perked up with a pinch of coarse salt.
This is my kind of almond butter.
I wish I’d thought of this dreamy combo all on my own, but, yeah. I didn’t. I was inspired by this incredible almond butter from Wild Friends. As soon as I set my taste buds on this stuff, I knew I had to make my own version at home.
A couple of days ago, I showed you how to make homemade almond butter. All you need are almonds and a food processor or strong blender! So easy, right? Well, the plain homemade stuff is plenty incredible. But when you stir in stuff like espresso, vanilla, and brown sugar … nirvana, my friends.
I like to spread this on toast or just eat it by the spoonful for a quick energy-boosting snack. Caffeine and almond butter. Nature’s perfect duo.
Vanilla Espresso Almond Butter
- 2 cups unsalted almond butter (from 3 cups raw almonds - here's how to make it)
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon instant espresso granules
- 1 vanilla bean (seeds scraped and pod discarded (make some vanilla sugar with the pod!))
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- Place almond butter to a medium bowl and add remaining ingredients. Stir well. Taste and add additional salt if desired.
- Keeps refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
I am not a fan of the flavour of coffee myself but that is what I love about making your own nut butters; you can flavour them however you like! I do love the vanilla in this!
It is seriously good with just the vanilla.
I LOVE coffee everything, except coffee ice cream. I find it vile. So weird, right?!
Oh my, pass me a spoon, and come to mama! This looks out of this world!
It just occurred to me that I could use a giant serving spoon and say “Hey, it was only one spoonful!” If that’s wrong, I don’t want to be right. 😉
Yum!! I looove homemade nut butters, and I did an espresso bean white chocolate PB one time (which was amazing) but I love that you used granules! Definitely gotta try this version out 🙂
Oooh, I remember that! It looked in-sane. In a good way. I still need to try that!
This definitely sounds spoon worthy!! I think I could eat the whole batch in one sitting. Love all of the flavor combinations going on here!
I may or may not have made myself slightly sick on this stuff. To me, it is actually a little reminiscent of cookie dough. So hard to stop!
This sounds so delicious! Almond butter sounds amazing, and spiking it with coffee sounds perf! Thanks for sharing
Dear Lord, I need a jar of this and a spoon stat!
Guess I know what will be appearing in my fridge very soon 🙂
Seriously, it’s the best (and easiest!) snack ever! The only problem is I have a hard time stopping myself from going back for more … and more. 😉
Nut butters are just one of those things where you can dress it up anyway! I love the idea of having vanilla almond butter!
I want to try SO MANY THINGS in almond butter! The wheels are turning. I need to pace myself – lol. 😉
