But like any other packaged food product, there are often additives and preservatives. And when a product only requires two ingredients to make, you’ve got to wonder, “why don’t I just make it myself?” Well, you can. The recipe is easy enough – it does require, however, something called a nut milk bag. This is a mesh bag that allows you to strain the almonds from the milk. You could probably use a fine strainer as well, but I have found the milk bag works best. Once you get the basic recipe down, you can experiment by adding a touch of extract such as vanilla or hazelnut. This recipe is a must-have if you want to save money and get a healthier-than-store-bought product in your fridge. Bottoms up!
Just heat the waffle iron, coat it lightly with coconut oil. Spread almond butter on one slice and jelly on the other – just like you would make a PB&J. I like the almond butter for this recipe – it makes it a little more special.
Put the sandwich in the waffle iron, wait a few minutes until golden brown, sprinkle with powdered sugar, garnish with berries and enjoy.
