This quick and easy homemade almond butter recipe tastes like cookie dough! You’ll never know it’s healthy, gluten free and packed with protein!
Something about getting sick and dying? She’s so dramatic.
You’ve seen the vegan cookie dough breakfast bowls, and the cookie dough overnight oats. There are ZERO secrets between us about my love of creamy, buttery cookie dough in the mornin’ hours that are – PHYSCH – NOT ACTUALLY BUTTERY AT ALL. Might even go for some oatmeal cookie granola butter on my toast!
In the sense that they are healthy and you can eat them every. Single. DAY.
TAKE THAT MOM.
But, SOMETIMES, you want something a little different you know? Like, you can be obsessed with one flavor, but you just NEED variety. It needs to be eaten in a way that is DIFFERENT. That is EXCITING. You must keep your taste buds GUESSING.
My vote is for switchin’ it up by DRIZZLING sweet, creamy, magically-delicious cookie dough butter, that is a mix of flavahed almond butter and pecan butter, goodness onto EVERYTHING, FOREVER AND EVER THE END.
Protip: spread it over some low carb gluten free graham crackers with almond flour. SO GOOD.
Because why would you stick to only 2 recipes when you could have it on ALL THE RECIPES right? RIGHT.
Say hello to your very newest, and very-most-bested friend: COOKIE DOUGH PROTEIN BUTTER.
Don’t tell me you’re not familiar with nights of eating some sort of rich, smooooth nut butter straight out of the jar, crammed into a corner. Yew know, so that no one will see you and a. judge you and b. ask you to share.
Whoever the “they” is that said “sharing is caring” obviously did NOT know about your nut butter obsession. Rude.
This cookie dough flavored homemade almond butter is seriously one of the easiest recipes that you will find in all the land. You simply need to put some delicious, toasted (don’t skip this step!) nuts into a food processor and press START. SRSLY. That easy. You can walk away and get on your with your life. Except, don’t walk TOO FAR, because you do need to be around the scrape the food processor down every few seconds.
But, you get the PICTCHA.
Once your food processor has turned your hard, crunchy nuts into the tastiest looking sand that ever existed on planet earth, you simply add some butter extract (for the obvious necessity of cookie-tasting-deliciousness) a good squeeze of honey aaaaand vanilla PROTEIN POWDER.
And you came here today expecting JUST cookie dough. Andddd then you got hit in the face with protein POW too.
Best news ever right?
The protein powder gives that nice, light vanilla flavor to this butter. BUT, be warned, after you add the powder and extract, the butter will suddenly get, liiiike, SUPER THICK. And you will be all “WHAT HAPPENED TO MY SMOOTH COOKIE DOUGH BUTTER?!”
Calm down. Just press “start” and walk away. Just do it. For a good 5-10 minutes.
I pinky swears that you will come back to creamy, dreamy, lusciously sweet and smooth butter.
The only thing I can’t pinky swear is that you won’t eat in the first 5 seconds flat.
