Making your own nut butters is so easy and one of my favorite things to experiment with. Almond butter, cashew macadamia nut butter, mixed nut butter, and pecan butter … the options are endless. This recipe combines the familiar taste of peanut butter with warm cinnamon and chewy raisins. You simply put the peanuts in the food processor with a pinch of salt and sugar and grind it until it becomes rich and creamy. The cinnamon adds subtle spice and raisins give it texture and fruitiness. It’s great on everything from toast to ice cream, or just straight out of the jar with a spoon.
