Maple Cinnamon Roasted Almond Butter

So I recently discovered the Edible Perspective blog and have bookmarked a half dozen of her nut butter recipes to try. This version was my first of her recipes and won't be my last. It ishard to not eat the entire jar by the spoonful.

Maple Cinnamon Roasted Almond Butter
1 cup raw almonds
2 1/2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 Tbsp. almond oil (optional)

Preheat your oven to 325°F. Line a pan with parchment or Silipat. Pour the almonds on the pan,  and mix with the maple syrup. Roast for 15min, stirring 3 times.  Let them cool for 5 minutes. Put in the food processor, and turn the processor on. Let it go until it’s buttery, about 15 minutes.  Scrape down the bowl as needed. If you're having a hard time getting it to smooth out, you can stream in 1/2 Tbsp. oil after 12 to 15 minutes of processing to help move things along.

Add in the salt and cinnamon, and process again until smooth and buttery.
