Everything is the same as in the first recipe, only without toasting them. However, in order to get the final product you will have to mix the almonds little bit longer than with roasted almonds. Be patient, mix them more than 10 minutes, depending on the quality of the almonds.
You can also add honey to the final product, but don’t add it while mixing the almonds, because it can get sticky.
