So, about those munchy crunchy almonds I made yesterday, I may or may not have pulverized them into a smooth and creamy paste today.
Actually, I have a little secret for you. My original intent was to make to make Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter, BUT I completely ignored the fact that I had raw almonds instead of toasted. I attempted to whirl my almonds, maple syrup, and cinnamon in my food processor and it just wouldn’t process. For some reason, raw almond are too soft to process? Anyways, that’s when I had the ingenious idea to make maple toasted almonds :) Those guys were fun for a couple days, but lezz face it, nothing beats nut butter :) Plus, then I got to lick the bowl.
I used 1.5 C of Maple Toasted Almonds and was able to fill my jar about 1/3 of the way.
On to a more exciting part of my day…Afternoon workout! Normally, I skip Tuesday workouts because I have to get up early for my internship and then have to go right to class. As you know, I am a morning worker outer (don’t mind my poor grammar), so it is difficult for me to motivate myself to workout after a 10ish hour day. Today on the other hand, the sister and I scheduled a little destination run before dinner due to the GLORIOUS weather here in Minne. Can’t pass up a beautiful day of sunshine.
Our destination was Seward Co-op. We didn’t actually buy anything, but we did Ooo and Ahh over their AMAZING hot bar. Pretty nerdy? Nahhh, not as nerdy as the sister running in glasses :)
