Stuffed Strawberries

These ruby gems are the perfect balance. The almond butter is thick and the fresh strawberries cut through the thickness, then the drizzle of honey and cinnamon give it the perfect spice and sweetness. They. Are. Addictive.

They are perfect as a finger-food dessert with drinks for any party or for a well-deserved snack after a workout. Or for a snack in the dark when no one is looking.

Treat yo self.

Ok, so you just need 4 ingredients for this recipe. 

If you've never had almond butter before it tastes like peanut butter, but with almonds. As long as you don't hate almonds you shouldn't have a problem with almond butter. Since peanuts are not actually nuts (shocking, I know, they are actually legumes), almonds are a great alternative for those of us who are gluten-freeing or paleoing.

After rinsing the strawberries, pull off the husks.

Hollow out the strawberries by cutting around the top. Not sure if that makes sense. Here, look:

Ok, so do that to all the strawberries.

Now, cut the tips of the bottoms of the strawberries off. Again, here, look:

Thank God for photographs.

Look, now the strawberries can stand up on their own! They're growing up so fast.

Spoon some almond butter into the strawberries. Use the smallest spoon you own.

Repeat with all the strawberries.

They look so purrty.

Awww. Cute.

Place them all on the plate or platter you will be using. Spoon a little bit of honey. Drizzle it on top.

Grab some cinnamon.

Sprinkle some cinnamon on top.
