Almond Butter Snack

Whenever I am realize that I have become too dependent on chocolate (how is that possible?), I make up a batch of this yummy deliciousness. It feels healthier.
This is reducing to Vata and Pitta—and very aggravating to Kapha.


  • baking sheet or pan
  • 4 qt pot


  • 1 jar your favorite jut or seed butter
  • 1 jar brown rice syrup
  • ½ c. dried raisins or craisins or other dried fruit
  • c. chopped nuts of your choice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract optional


  • Empty the jar of nut or seed butter and the jar of brown rice syrup into the pot.
  • Warm on a low heat until the mixture is simmering. Continue to cook the mixture on a low heat, stirring continuously to keep it from burning for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and pour in your remaining ingredients. Stir to incorporate them.
  • Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet that has walls (ie: a jelly roll pan works well) or into a baking pan and allow to cool.
  • You can eat this immediately or keep it in the refrigerator or freezer.


You can also add shredded coconut or goji berries. This recipe is very adaptable. 
I also add ground cinnamon, ground turmeric, ground nutmeg. I suppose you could add a teensy tinsy bit of salt…
