Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter (*Almond Joy Almond Butter*)

Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter

Deliciousness in a Mason jar.

Well over a month ago, I was doing my best to create something delicious when the clouds parted and the heavens spoke in the most commanding and divine voice, “Julie….. Make Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter…… Eat it with a spoon…… If you make it, it will be devoured” 

I listened to that voice and created a jar full of goodness. It is like Almond Joy Almond Butter! Heck to the yes! Can I get an Amen?!

Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter

  • 1 1/2 c. almonds
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp coconut extract (I would even go heavier because I’m a HUGE coconut fan!)
  • 2-3 droppers of stevia extract (or other sweetener of your choice)
  • 1 Tbsp. Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground sea salt
  • 1/4 c.  unsweetened coconut shreds/flakes

Put almonds in food processor and let them grind away. Grind approximately 12 minutes. till it reaches a buttery consistency. You will need to scrape down the sides several times in those 12- 15 minutes before it reaches the buttery consistency. (I used raw nuts but I know that most people roast them for 10’ish minutes). Add coconut oil, vanilla, coconut extract, stevia extract, sea salt, and cocoa powder. Process till smooth. Finally add coconut shreds and pulse till it is mixed into the almond butter.Put in Mason jar. Enjoy!

Moral of the story- Listen to the voices in your head ;)

Question: Any other sweet treats I should try to make into a healthy nut butter?
