Get spicy with your nut butters and whirl up this sriracha almond butter for the most amazing veggie and cracker dip EVER. All you need is a single ingredient!
How is it already January 4th of 2016? Is it just me or will it take a good 2 months before you stop messing up the date?
If you know me in real life, you know that I take my love for nut butter very seriously. I keep my cabinet fully stocked (we’re talking 8+ variations at all times), I eat it at more than once a day, I travel with it, and I even keep a jar under my pillow. JK on the last one. In all honesty- it is THE PERFECT SNACK. You can spread it, you can dip things into it, you can eat it with a spoon, heck- your dog even likes it. It’s high fat, high protein, and low carb, meaning that it will keep you fuller for longer. Winning.
One of my favorite things to do is make my own nut butter. Why? Because I feel super domestic and I get to use my food processor 🙂 I also feel extremely accomplished when it’s all said and done because you literally put sooooo much work into standing there for 5-10 minutes while the almonds get pulverized into a drippy nut butter. In today’s savory almond butter recipe- all you need is 1 ingredient. SRIRACHA ALMONDS. FFF is going on year 3 partnering with Blue Diamond and they’ve legit kept me fully stocked with nuts and almond milk month after month. I never once thought to take a savory flavored almond and turn it into a butter and then it hit me. Major revelation, people.
So that’s right- all you need is Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds and nothing else. Pop those babies into your food processor and let the magic happen.
It’s like MAGIC.
- Place almonds in a high-speed food processor and blend on high for 5-7 minutes. You will have to stop a few times to scrape the sides!
This savory almond butter recipe actually makes for the perfect dip! Slice up some veggies (carrots and celery) and spread out some crackers or chips…and you’ve got yourself one nummy game day snack!
You could get crazy and spread it on some toast with goat cheese….hubba hubba.
