Ingredients


2 cup whole Almonds, raw

1 pinch Sea salt

Instructions


1. Preheat oven to 300F degrees.

3. 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.
4. Transfer to a glass jar with a tight lid and refrigerate up to two weeks.
