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.)

Dark Chocolate Honey Almond Butter

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 3 Tbsp coconut butter (I used homemade - recipe on my blog)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp dark cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp honey (substitute agave, stevia, or maple syrup if vegan)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted (for thinning, if needed)

Instructions

  1. Place almonds in a Blendtec Blender Twister Jar with the Twister Lid. Pulse until the nuts form a powder rotating the Twister Lid counter-clockwise as needed.
  2. Transfer the almond powder to the Wildside+ Jar and blend on medium-high speed in 30 second intervals for 2 to 3 minutes, until the almonds have released their natural oils and the mixture becomes pasty and smooth.
  3. Pour almond butter into a bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients to desired taste and texture.
