Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Almond Butter

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Almond Butter

Heaven in a jar!

Ummm, yes. You just read that correctly. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Almond Butter.  It is heaven. End of story.

I have been hoarding this recipe for a few months now. Not out of my inability to share food (which is true, I don’t like to share food- unless you’re sharing chocolate with me….)  but out of love for you; I wanted the recipe to be perfect. Each batch I made~  this stuff got better. ……It’s like a magic food! :)

It can also turn a frown upside down…. See? MAGIC! :)

Disclaimer: Another reason for my lengthy time to get you all this goodness….. It was a staple in this pregnat woman’s diet. I can’t seem to keep a jar around long enough to photograph it. Oops! Now it is a staple in this new mamma’s diet—-> I’m afraid my son may have a lactose intolerance so I’m eating the heck out of almond butter these days!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Almond Butter

  • 2 c. almonds
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp sugar/ sweetener of choice
  • 1 tbsp dark molasses
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond extract (pure almond extract is BEST!- super strong!)
  • 1 tsp butter extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2’ish tbsp. Mini Chocolate Chips (I won’t judge if a few extra slip in ;))

Roast almonds @ 325° for 13-18 minutes. Trust your nose. The longer they roast, the deeper and richer the flavor will be. I roast them much closer to 18 than 13. Watch them closely- rather smell them closely :)Let cool for 15 minutes.

Grind the roasted almonds in a food processor till they reach a smooth buttered consistancy. In my opinion, the longer the better- I don’t like it gritty. Add oil through baking soda and let it get smooth and well mixed. (add more flavoring or oil at this time if you want it more runny! I’m a runny’ish almond butter fan.) Also, I go a little overboard on flavorings but I was conservative in the recipe- don’t be afraid to add in more extract, sugar, or baking soda to make it fit your liking. Fiddling with a recipe to make it perfect for you is the best idea ever!

Let cool before you add in the chocolate chips- they WILL melt otherwise, trust me. Finally stir in those chocolate chips & enjoy!

    • I live in the middle of nowhere so I don’t get to TJ’s anymore—- it was heartbreaking to move away from the east coast after my teaching was over, mainly the no TJ’s part was heartbreaking!!! I would LOVE to try their cookie butter but have never had the chance. Bummer!

      • Sorry :/ Where on the east coast did you live? I’ve been in the DC area my whole life [minus college, went up to Boston]… We totally could do a blogger swap if you’d like some TJ’s treats!!!
