Almond Butter Benefits Healthy Kids
The good news is that almond butter is also high in fibre, and the natural fat that it contains is extremely healthy and essential for your child’s growing body. Almond butter has been trending in the last five years or so as a superfood. Almond butter is rich in Vitamin B6, which helps produce neurotransmitter chemicals. These chemicals improve communication between brain cells. It contains zinc, a mineral that boosts the immune system, thus preventing viral and bacterial infections that may affect brain cells
Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
Place almonds on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Roast almonds for 10-12 minutes, stirring once halfway through, to ensure they don’t burn. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
When cooled, place roasted almonds in the bowl of a food processor along with the cinnamon and sea salt. Pulse until creamy smooth. Depending on your food processor this may take a few minutes. My food processor takes just over 2 minutes to process into a creamy texture.
Transfer to a glass jar with a tight lid and refrigerate up to two weeks.
