Let the almond butter and the cookie get to know each other, add bit of sweetener, vanilla and salt to the party, and let your tongue mingle with the blade of the processor.

Now. Homemade cookie butter. Let’s do this.
Because almonds are amazingful with their taste and their health properties and their ability to make you fly and walk on water or something of that nature, we’re going to utilize their amazingfullness here. Spellcheck can’t even handle its excitement.
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 cup crushed chocolate chip cookies (I use Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Cookies)
- ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch salt
- sweetener to taste (I use 2 teaspoons erythritol)
- Add the raw almond to the bowl of a food processor. Turn the food processor on and let it process the nuts until they become creamy and butter-like, approximately 12 minutes, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed.
- Once you have achieved almond buttery goodness, add in the crushed chocolate chips and let process until completely incorporated, about 3 minutes. Now add in the unsweetened almond milk, vanilla extract, and salt, and process until incorporated and smooth. Sweeten to taste.
- Kept in an airtight container in the fridge, this cookie butter should last for about a week. Spread on toast, scoop onto oatmeal, eat with a spoon, but most importantly, devour.
