Hoff's "Peanut-free Peanut Butter"

Hoff's "Peanut-free Peanut Butter"
Yields: About 2 1/2 cups
dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free


Ingredients:
  • 2 cups Almonds
  • 1 15oz. can Chickpeas (rinsed & drained)
  • 1 tbsp. Whole Flax Seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp. fine Sea Salt

Directions:
  1. Microwave Almonds for 1-2 minutes or until warm to the touch
  2. In order add Almonds, Chickpeas, Flax, then Salt to a Vitamix
  3. Turn to high & using the tamper, constantly push mixture into the blades
  4. Run no more than 3 minutes (exceeding 6 minutes could result in this horror)

Hoff Thoughts:  For the record, I loath peanut butter - with good reason, I'm allergic to peanuts.  My lifelong natural revulsion has saved me many times.  However, I did not set out to make peanut butter with this recipe.  What I was trying to do was combine my Almond Butter recipe and my Hofftella (my vegan take on Nutella) recipe to create a whipped, creamy Almond Butter.  It didn't work.  What it did result in, (so I'm told) is something resembling peanut butter.  I'll buy that, because frankly, I'm not loving this stuff either.
