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.
