I can't remember what I had set out to buy on that trip, but I can tell you I took a trip down the bulk bin aisle and the rest is history. One of my impulse buys? A big ol' bag of raw almonds.
Spread it onto toast or crackers, enjoy it with some fruit, or eat it by the spoonful. It's a great protein-filled fix for any midday hunger cravings. And, as always, it is incredibly simple and easy to make!
Prep Time: 5 minutes, plus waiting time
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Makes: about 1 1/2 cups
You Will Need:
- 1 1/2 cups raw almonds
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 2 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 TBS coconut oil
- 1 TBS dark maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spread almonds and coconut on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, allowing the almonds to roast and the coconut to toast. Remove from oven and let cool (roughly 30 minutes).
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend for 2-4 minutes, until it becomes a smooth texture. It will go crumbly first, then smooth. Refrigerate and enjoy within one month!
