Nut butter are easy to make if you have the time. You can also get creative by combining different types of nuts to make cool combos. Here I combined some organic unsweetened dried coconut flakes with almonds to make a Coconut-Almond butter.
1 serving (~168 calories, 4 grams of carb, 16 grams of fat, 4 grams of protein)
Combine in a food processor: 15(+/-) almonds, a pinch full of dried coconut, a 1/3 teaspoon of coconut oil, a dash of cinnamon and a drop (literally 1 drop) of almond extract. Blend. You will have to push it down with a rubber spatula several times and the whole process takes about 15 minutes, but in my mind it's worth it. Very good spread on a fruit (e.g., apple, pear), tossed into a paleo pancake, spread on some coconut flour bread, etc.
