Fabricating homemade nut-butters has been my new past time these past 20 days while doing the Whole30. Normally, I love to bake. It’s a stress reliever and a creative outlet that I find great joy in doing. I love spending hours in the kitchen, dreaming up new recipes and watch them come to life. However, while doing a Whole30 that’s not really possible. While yes, I could still bake and just not consume what I’m baking, I’m not sure that I have the self-control for that. Not to mention, the ingredients for paleo/ gluten-free baking can be quite expensive, so I’d rather save it for an occasion when I can indulge in the treats I create.

So, instead of baking, I’ve been spending my rainy afternoons making different kinds of nut-butters. While it’s nowhere as difficult or creatively demanding as baking, it’s still a process that requires focus, and results in creation, which is one of my favorite things. To create something completely new out of seemingly ordinary ingredients. I watch as the small almonds change from individual nuts, into a powdery form, and eventually a luscious, oily, smooth butter. It’s almost like magic, the transformation.

With this recipe, I added two tablespoons of grapeseed oil to make a more runny and less dry almond butter. Additionally, I added freeze dried mangos, which adds a lovely sweetness and sticky texture to the almond butter. It almost feels like eating a dessert. Especially spread on some freshly cut mango, this almond butter is pure bliss.
