Recipe: Homemade Raw Cacao Almond Butter

Raw Cacao Almond Butter

Apples dipped in almond butter are probably one of my favorite snacks of all time! I also love to add almond butter to my morning oatmeal. It’s delicious! The problem is that raw almond butter in grocery stores can be a bit expensive. That’s why I wanted to share this recipe with you! Not only is this fun and easy to make, it’s a great way to save money! It tastes super yummy and is loaded with nutrients to help you look and feel your best. The beauty of making it yourself is that you can easily adjust the ingredients to make it taste how you like it. Sometimes I add more cacao powder and sometimes I will double up on the cinnamon. If you are vegan, swap out the honey for maple syrup. Enjoy!

Homemade Raw Almond Butter

  • 2 cups raw, unsalted almonds (you can find these at the bulk bin of most natural health food stores)
  • About 1 Tbsp raw, cold-pressed coconut oil (melted but not hot)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp cacao powder
  • 2 tsp raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Using your food processor or high-speed blender, process the almonds until they are in tiny bits. This can take up to four minutes depending on your equipment. Once the almonds are processed add the other ingredients and process until smooth. Store the almond butter in a small mason jar with a tight lid. Spread it on toast, fruit, celery, or even add it to smoothies!
