Smooth and Creamy Soaked Vanilla Maple Almond Butter

  • Author: Shanna Mallon
  • Total Time: 4 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x


Beyond the digestive benefits of this almond butter, it’s also delicious, as in, the most delicious almond butter I’ve ever had! Nutty and salty but also sweet, kissed by vanilla and maple syrup, it’s as good on sticks of raw celery as it is eaten on its own, by the spoonful.


  • 2 cups (273 g) crunchy almonds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 vanilla beans


  1. Place almonds, coconut oil, and maple syrup in a food processor.
  2. Slice the vanilla beans down the center vertically and use a spoon to scrape out the insides. Add the paste to the food processor. The beans can be reserved for use in other recipes, or discarded.
  3. Turn on the motor and process the mixture. After a few minutes it will turn into a rough ball, but let it keep mixing. It will separate and stick to the sides of the bowl and eventually become smooth, in about five minutes total.
  4. Taste and adjust as you like, adding a bit of salt or a little more maple syrup as needed.
  5. Serve on toast, with celery, or however you like your almond butter. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate. Note that it hardens slightly when cold.
