Spicy almond and cherry butter

This delicious nut butter is delicious, full of protein, and perfect for using up apples this autumn.

Spread on toast or for a healthier alternative, eat with apple slices to satisfy your sweet tooth.

If cooking for one, simply half the recipe to make a smaller batch.

Makes: 350g   Prep time: 10 minutes  Cook time: 5-10 minutes

 You’ll need

  • 200g whole almonds (with skin on)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 150g cherries, stoned and chopped
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • pinch salt

 Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/fan oven 170C/gas mark 5. Spread the nuts out on a baking tray and roast for 5-10 minutes until they have darkened in colour and you can just smell them.  Cool slightly.
  2. Place the nuts in a food processor and blitz to a coarse paste. This will take several minutes and you will need to keep scraping down the sides but eventually the oil will be released and you can see the paste forming.  Stir in the remaining ingredients and its good to go!  Store covered in the fridge for up to a week.
