Dark Chocolate Almond Butter
Creamy homemade chocolate-y almond butter that is so easy to make and so delicious! Spread it on toast, use it in smoothies/protein shakes, or use in baking recipes.
Almond butter is one of my favorite nut butters – almost every morning I eat a crispy english muffin with almond butter and honey. I love the taste of almond butter because it is satisfying, has a sweet taste to it, and is packed with protein, calcium, and so many nutrients.
Can I Make Almond Butter In A Blender?
Absolutely – I use my Vitamix to make nut butters like peanut butter, cashew butter, and almond butter. You can also use any other blender that is high-powdered. If you don’t have a high-power blender you can use a food processor instead.
What To Eat Almond Butter With
You can use almond butter in protein shakes/smoothies, baking recipes, and is great for breakfast dishes like pancakes, toast, and so much more.
Tips for Making Almond Butter
- Take your time with nut butters – when blending the almonds it takes time for it to become a creamy consistency. It will first start out as almond flour/meal then will begin to liquify over time and begin to cream.
- For this recipe to vegan – either remove honey or replace 1 tbsp of honey with coconut sugar.
- Store almond butter in a sealed glass jar and store in refrigerator to extend shelf life.

In a small bowl, soften chocolate chips for 30 seconds in microwave.
Place all ingredients in either a high powered blender or food processor. Start at a slow rate and bring the speed up medium-high for the nuts to break down. Allow ingredients to bind together--stop and mix ingredients with a spoon to help out if need be. Blend for 2-3 minutes until ingredients form a smooth consistency. Store almond butter in fridge for up to a month.
