Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

January 19, 2011

Thanks for all the Overnight Oats tips! I’m going to use yogurt instead of milk and see how it goes!

Also, you guys loved the doughy bread!! I do too, it is so good!

***

Today I really wanted to make almond butter.

Dark chocolate almond butter.

dark chocolate almond butter on doughy bread....heaven

Oh yes.

Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

- 2 cups almonds

- 2 batches of Katie’s Chocolate Butter

1. Roast the almonds on a cookie sheet in a 300°F for 30 minutes. Take them out and let them cool completely.

2. Meanwhile, make the chocolate butter. I didn’t have coconut oil, so I used canola and used honey to sweeten it.

3. Place the cooled almonds in your food processor and process them on high until they’re nice and smooth. Gradually scoop in the chocolate butter. Keep processing and then voila!

The main reason I wanted to make dark chocolate almond butter was so I could make Heather’s Everything-But-Sugar Oatmeal Cookies !

They are delicious! They’re surprisingly pretty sweet, even though there’s really no added sugar!

When I was making them, I almost didn’t add the dried cranberries, but I’m so glad I did! They really add a great flavor!

The only things I did differently was I didn’t have applesauce, so I used pumpkin and I didn’t have coconut oil, so I used canola instead!

Thanks Heather, they are so delicious and super healthy! I love them!

These have the potential of being the next Super-Charge-Me Cookie if you ask me!

    This is wonderful, Kayla! I love how prompt you are with updating your recipes page. I need to be better about that. Question: when you make Katie’s chocolate butter, is it liquid-y, or is it thicker and spreadable like in her pictures? I’ve made it a couple times and both times it just looks like a drizzle-y chocolate sauce. Any ideas?

    I want to make Heather’s cookies!

      It’s pretty thick when I make it! I don’t know why it’s so runny for you. When I make it, I just be sure to do do the oil first then stir in the cocoa powder. If it’s too thin, add more cocoa. Then last I add the sweetener.
