Crunchy Maple Almond Butter

Crunchy Maple Almond Butter?!  I hope that title made you click on this post.  It would definitely make me click.

Today was a great Monday.  Mainly because we gained an extra hour of sunlight tonight.  It was pretty crazy how much it affected my mood.  I rushed home after work, threw on my running shoes, and headed out for a run.  It was so, so nice to catch the sunset and breathe in 45 degree air! Literally, an instant mood booster.

Now on to that Crunchy Maple Almond Butter that made you click in the first place.  I can’t believe I didn’t buy a food processor earlier.  I’ve been dishing a lot of money for fancy almond butters over the past few years.  Little did I know all I needed was a few ingredients and this amazing machine we call a food processor.

A Super Simple Recipe – Oatless Oatmeal!

Alright maybe it’s the cold weather settling in or the fact that my schedule has me getting home much later on Mondays…but I’ve been craving something warm, comforting, and easy for dinner.  Before going primal I literally used to eat oatmeal with peanut butter every day for breakfast.  So for some reason, the past few weeks I’ve really been craving my old go-to.

This was my first attempt at making Oatless Oatmeal.  It is a super simple recipe that’s perfect for nights you get home late or mornings when you want something other than eggs!

By the way, I didn’t measure much for this recipe. It’s approximate, so add a little here and there to your liking.

Oatless Oatmeal

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 tsp of coconut oil
  • Justin’s Almond Butter (I used Maple but any flavor would be great I’m sure)
  • Some milk (I used skim milk this time around)
  • Sea Salt
  • Cinnamon

Place a small sauce pan on the stove over medium heat.  Add the coconut oil so that it melts.  Break your banana into small pieces and add them to the pan.  Start to mash them, it will become easier as they get warmer.  Add in almond butter (i used about 2 scoops) and milk.  Start mixing and keep mashing to get out most of the clumps.  Add a dash of salt and some cinnamon.  Stir for another 5 minutes or until it has the consistency you like.  Pour in a bowl, cozy up on the couch, and enjoy!
