Smart Sweet: Maple Cinnamon Chia Almond Butter

By: Jamie Webber

If you love nut butters as much as I do then you will love this twist on typical almond butter. While almond butter is a good healthy fat option to add to celery sticks or sprouted breads, this Maple Cinnamon Chia Almond Butter packs even more nutritional punch thanks to the added chia seeds, hemp seeds, and cinnamon!

It’s great to have around the house for something savory and sweet and a great option to bring to the host of your upcoming New Years party.

This recipe was adapted here.


  • 2 cup (180 g) raw almonds
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½  tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ½  tsp pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 300F/150C.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix together the almonds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Spread out almond mixture onto baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring once half way through.
    Note: Make sure the almonds do not burn. You will want to check them at 20 minutes.
  3.  Remove from oven and allow the almond mixture to cool for a few minutes. Mix in food processor or high-powered blender for about 10 minutes, stopping to stir every 30-60 seconds as needed.
    Note: If you find that the mix isn’t stirring easily then add in 2 Tbsp. of canola oil, or any oil of your choice.
  4. The mixture is ready once it’s smooth. Add in the vanilla and salt and blend until mixed well.
  5. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
