Almonds are full of magnesium, healthy fats, protein and fiber which makes them a filling, satisfying treat to have as a snack before a workout, or as a 3PM pick-me up. Some studies have shown that almonds can decrease the risk of diabetes and heart disease, so load up, but remember, moderation and variety is key for optimal health.

We know whole almonds can get a little dull, so we’ve pulled together a few of our favorite recipes for you that not only taste great, but will provide you loads of health benefits too:

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Almond Butter Recipe

Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 2½ tsp pure vanilla extract, divided
  • 1½ tsp water
  • ½ tbsp finely chopped walnuts (using the back of a spoon to smash them seemed to work best for us)
  • ½ tbsp chopped carob chips or cacao nibs
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper & toss almonds onto paper so none are overlapping. Bake for 10 minutes.
  2. Add almonds to food processor & blend until paste begins to form (about 5-10 minutes; the mixture might build up on the walls of the food processor, if you see that happening just take a spatula & wipe it down). Add 2 tsp vanilla & all the water. Continue pureeing until smooth. Stir in walnuts & remaining vanilla. Let mixture cool & add in the carob chips. Transfer to airtight jar, secure lid & store in fridge up to 1 week. Enjoy!
