Homemade Honey Vanilla Almond Butter

Nut butters are one of my favorite foods, especially when mixed with some type of chocolate!  I seem to have multiple servings of nut butter daily- a dollop in a green smoothie, a blob on my toast, a dip for an apple, or just by the spoonful! Nuts and nut butters are great additions to meals or snacks as they are rich in protein and healthy fats, which help to keep you satiated for longer.

We compared nut butters and found that many nut butters are relatively similar from a nutrition standpoint, so taste preference is really what drives what type of nut butter is for you! There are so many options at the grocery store these days, it can be hard to decipher which one is the healthiest or most cost effective choice. The solution? Homemade nut butters.

I love pizza, it has always been one of my favorite foods, but when I became more aware of the food I was putting into my body, I knew I needed to find a healthier alternative to the typical take out and delivery pizza joints.

My dad worked at a pizza place in high school, so growing up, we often made our own dough at home and got to top it with our favorite things. As a kid, this was such a cool experience that we always looked forward to. I never really paid attention to how the dough was made. When I moved out and craved my beloved homemade pizza, I was initially intimidated by the concept of making dough from scratch. There was no way could possibly make dough…that is way too hard!
