Power toast & homemade almond butter

Thanks to Diana at The Chic Life, the kids and I are hooked on our own version of Power Toast.  The kids like it with half almond butter and half dark chocolate peanut butter (soooo yummy.) I had mine with a TBS of almond butter and a small smear of the chocolate good stuff.  We sprinkled Chia seeds on it...a new thing for us (again thanks to Diana).

This piece was way too big for Abby...she only gets 1/2 slice now. Joshua always eats his crust first...on toast and sandwiches.  He likes the good stuff in the center the best so he saves it for last.

I have had this huge bag of whole raw almonds from Costco in the fridge forever so we decided to make some homemade almond butter.  All we did we throw a bunch of almonds into the food processor(about 2-3 cups) and mixed it to death until it was creamy and delicious.  We added a little bit of salt since they were unsalted. I read online we can store it in the fridge for up to 4 weeks. Power toast for weeks! :) I think a TBS of almond butter is 2 WW points.  (At least that's how I count it.)
Nothing new on the scrappy or crafty side here. :( I never seem to have the time!!!  Gotta find some time...I am having withdrawls!
