2 cups almonds (plain, raw, no salt)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 tablespoon honey, melted
1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
1-2 pinches sea salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spread 2 cups of almonds on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. (NOTE: Check the almonds at 10 minutes. Some older ovens may be hotter than others.)
  3. Pour 2 cups of roasted almonds in a food processor and let it run for about 5-10 minutes until desired smoothness. Be patient. It takes a few minutes for the almonds to release the oils for a creamy nut-butter. Within the first few minutes, you’ll notice a dry, meal-like consistency. The fibers will eventually break down. (NOTE: older food processors may require a bit more time.)
  4. Melt honey and coconut oil together and stir in the 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to dissolve.
  5. Add the melted mixture to the food processor and let it run for another 1-2 minutes until it emulsifies and reaches a creamy texture again.
  6. Sprinkle in 1-2 pinches of sea salt.

Store in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
Yields ~ 1 cup

    If you use a vita-mix mixer, it takes about 30 seconds to mix the nuts into a paste. awesome!

      Love, love, love that vitamix! So glad you enjoyed the little jar of goodness!!!

  • shelley

    can this recipe be duplicated with peanut butter?

      Heck yeaaah Shelley! You can actually do this for a variety of nuts. The only thing that might shift is the duration (and temp) of roasting them in the oven — mostly because the oils in each kind of nut are different. Just keep an eye out for them as you are roasting them. Oh and be patient when churning them in the food processor. It takes time! ENJOY and let us know how it goes!

      Absolutely! You can try it with different nuts and seeds!

    I’m excited to try this recipe!! Do you use coconut oil with or without coconut taste?

      Hi there! We love this recipe and can’t wait for you to try it. What do you mean exactly, when you say “do we use coconut oil with or without coconut taste?” Maybe…do you mean…can we taste the coconut taste? It’s just just a little (1 teaspoon) to help add some moisture since we are adding a dry ingredient (cocoa powder) so the flavor isn’t too strong. Let us know if we answered your question or not and we’ll help you out 😉 Thanks for sending us a note!
