This Dark Chocolate Honey Almond Butter is made with pure ingredients for a healthy homemade spread great on toast, as a dip for apples and bananas, or eaten straight from the spoon! (Bonus! It’s Gluten Free, Paleo, and can easily be turned into Vegan.)
I was provided with a Blendtec blender to review and use to create this post. All opinions and text are 100% mine.
This Dark Chocolate Honey Almond Butter is my final recipe in the Blendtec giveaway series! I’ve played with that machine way more than my 4 posts suggest. The Blendtec actually keeps count of the number of times I’ve used it. Let’s just say I’m already up to 50+ uses. Some of those were washes though, but the majority have been smoothies and fun stuff like this spread!
I am a huge fan of spreads, peanut butter, Nutella, you name it! I have toast with some sort of spread on it every morning with my smoothie. I believe the nut butters help keep me fuller longer, but I don’t have scientific information to back that up, just my personal feelings on the matter. Anyway, so when you have a toy like a Blendtec sitting on your kitchen counter, you’ve got to start making your own spreads. Plus, homemade is way better! This almond spread is gluten free, paleo, and can easily be turned into vegan, because it’s full of pure ingredients like raw almonds, coconut butter, dark cocoa powder, sea salt, and honey (substitute agave, stevia, or maple syrup if vegan).
You basically pulse your nuts until they form a powder. I pulsed my almonds in the Twister Jar with the Twister Lid to scrape the sides, then I transferred it to my Wildside+ Jar and let it run on medium-high for 30 second intervals about 2 to 3 minutes until the almonds released their natural oils and it became pasty and smooth. Stir in the flavorings, and you’ve got yourself some Dark Chocolate Honey Almond Butter!
The best part about this is when your kids are eating it and they ask for more. That’s when you feel really good about yourself! If anything, this Blendtec blender is helping our family eat more nutritiously. We especially enjoyed this almond butter as a dip with crisp apples.
I hope you enjoy this spread! Feel free to adjust the honey (or agave, stevia, or maple syrup if vegan) and salt to your personal preferences and don’t forget to enter the Blendtec giveaway if you haven’t already! Today is the last day to enter!

I have a real thing for dark chocolate. And spreads. So this is just fantastic! Pinned!
Then this sounds perfect for you! Thanks Michelle!
I love making homemade nut butter, but haven’t tried a chocolate version. What a great idea! Love how creamy this looks too.
This was my first time, but it had to be chocolate! 😉
I have yet to try almond butter in my blendtec (only peanut) but I know what I’m going to make first when I do. This looks incredible and I want it on a thick slice of toast like now!
We are opposite! I need to try peanut butter in my blendtec!
I am a sucker for homemade nut butters and adding dark chocolate and coconut butter sounds absolutely irresistible! I would totally want to eat this by the spoonful! Yum!
It was a delicious combo for sure! Thanks Kelly!

Oh, yum! Nothing beats homemade almond butter, but dark chocolate and honey thrown into the mix? I’m swooning. 🙂
Yeah, I have a slight chocolate addiction, so it had to be done. 😉 Thanks Sarah!
I love homemade almond butter! I’m not sure I could resist it with chocolate mixed in. This could be so dangerous!
It’s definitely eat it from the spoon dangerous!
