Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter

Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter from Bakerita.com | #paleo #glutenfree #vegan #recipe

Let me start by saying that this full jar of dark chocolate coconut almond butter was finished in about a week flat. I ate this stuff like, 3 times a day on everything from toast to apples to a spoon. It’s so wonderfully addictive, and I can’t promise it’s going to last long in your house!

I’m a nut butter addict, and while I used to be allllll about peanut butter (evident by the 25 peanut butter recipes you can find in my recipe index), I think I’m slowly but surely converting to almond butter for most things that use nut butters. And I absolutely LOVE creating new flavors of almond butters. This one is definitely my favorite that I’ve made so far. It’s pure heaven for a chocolate and coconut lover like me.

I was using one of the smaller Vitamix models initially and when it started smoking, I transferred the almond butter to a small little food chopper thing that finished the almond butter perfectly, making it smooth and creamy and drippy and absolutely wonderful. Here’s some pictures of the process so that you can see the different stages of almond butter processing! It probably took about 7 minutes blending time.

This batch is long gone, but I’m totally going to be making it again once I’m done with my current jar of almond butter (so probably really soon, at the rate I’m going).

I know some people think making your own nut butters is too much work, and sometimes even I just can’t be bothered, but if you have the time and equipment, it really is worth it! I’m always floored by the results when I make my own. You just can’t beat it!

Hope you guys will try it out, and enjoy!

Dark Chocolate Honey Almond Butter (GF, Paleo, Vegan)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 3 tablespoons coconut butter
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)

Instructions

  1. Place almonds in a food processor or Vitamix. Process for 7-10 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary. The almond butter will first get powdery, then pasty, and then start to form a butter. Process until the almonds have turned smooth and dripping.
  2. Remove from the Vitamix or food processor and stir in the remaining ingredients. Store in an airtight jar.

  1. This is killing me! I too am a nut butter addict. If I don’t get some e’ryday….watch out!
    It used to be ONLY peanut butter but I have recently discovered the yum that is almond butter.
    And, CHOCOLATE almond butter? Dead.
    Pinned!

  2. Oh wow! I need to try this! Sounds SO GOOD!!!

  3. girrrrrl-this is like heaven in a jar! I would totally eat it all up real quick too!

  4. I have a slight obsessions with Justin’s vanilla almond butter, but I definitely want a homemade dark chocolate version!

  5. You’re sooo lucky you have a Vitamix! I want one!

  6. I love love love all the ingredients you put into this nut butter. I feel like you could write a cookbook about nut butters. There would be some good stuff in that cookbook. ;) Add some coconut milk and this could totally be popsicles! It might happen. :)

  7. Recipes like this really should come with a warning label :) I absolutely love making my own nut butters, and have been wondering for a long time how a chocolate version would taste. You totally knocked this out of the park, and now I have to (but am sort of afraid to – for pants-fitting reasons) try this!

  8. Oh wow, this sounds incredible! I am a big fan of almond butter but with dark chocolate and coconut? I’ll take the whole batch please :) Pinned!

  9. Do you use Dutch processed cocoa or the regular non-sweetened cocoa powder, such as Hershey’s? I’ve made chocolate peanut butter but it’s been a couple of years ago and I can’t remember what kind of chocolate I added…I think it was the regular cocoa. In any case, it was delicious! I loved using it in the fudge puddles cookie tart recipe…oh yum!! Can’t wait to try the almond version.

    • Hi Dianna,

      In this recipe, I used Hershey’s cocoa, but you could also use Dutch process. The color will just be a little bit different, but the flavor difference won’t be too pronounced. Hope you like it!

  10. How long would this last in the fridge? Thank you!
