{create} almond butter

See that below? The chocolat-y goodness in the picture? Absolute bliss.

That is chocolate almond butter. Homemade. It's so good, so easy, and you can control the ingredients. The latter is a huge priority in our home right now.

Chocolate Almond Butter
  • Almonds (raw or roasted. whatever your preference. I use raw.)
  • Chocolate bar (again whatever your preference. the chocolate above was 90% dark.)
  • Sweetener, optional 
{Quantity is completely up to you. For this recipe, I used about 2 cups of raw almonds, 1.5 oz of super dark chocolate and a touch of stevia.}

  1. Pour almonds in your food processor.
  2. Let process, scraping down the sides as necessary. Friends, be patient here. This will take awhile. This batch took about 15 minutes. First the almonds will form a meal, then will start to form the butter. Keep processing until you reach desired consistency.
  3. While almonds are processing, melt chocolate in the microwave, or in a double-boiler on the stove.
  4. Once almond butter is at the right consistency, add in your melted chocolate and sweetener, if using.
  5. Process until completely combined.
  6. Transfer to air tight container and pop in the fridge.

We use almond butter on pancakes, in smoothies and sometimes by the spoonful for a quick snack. The great part about this recipe is it's flexibility. Add in whatever you're in the mood for: coconut, cinnamon, honey, cocoa powder, snickers, etc. I used a chocolate bar, because that's what we had on hand.

Enjoy! :)
