Coconut Almond Butter

by Heather

Have you all tried this stuff?!! It’s coconut + peanut butter heaven. I picked up a jar of the chunky a few months ago and I’ve done nothing but eat it straight out of the jar with spoon. So. Good.

So good I had to make my own.

I’ve been meaning to try my hand at some homemade almond butter so I killed two birds with one stone.

Homemade Coconut Almond Butter. Yes, please.

I prefer to use blanched almonds for a more-refined tasting almond butter- less rustic if you will- but feel free to use whatever you have on hand.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups blanched slivered almonds
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, liquid
  • pinch sea salt

Instructions

Blend ingredients in high powered blender or food processor until smooth.

Notes:

You may want to start by blending almonds alone, then slowly add in coconut oil until almond mixture comes together in a smooth consistency. You may or may not use all {or more!} of the coconut oil.

Also delicious with cinnamon & vanilla!

Seriously, this stuff is so good. I even have to share with the little rugrat- I let him swipe a taste one day and he refused to give my spoon back.

Need me to grab you a spoon? Winking smile

I am totally obsessed with Earth Balance Peanut Coconut Spread, but I never thought about making Coconut Almond Butter. So ingenious!

LOVE! I’ve actually been taking my jars of Maranatha natural almond butter and blending them with some coconut oil. I wish I had a good enough food processor to make the thing from scratch like this. Love the coconut addition. So addictive. Haha!

I just stumbled upon your blog and I kept shaking my head and saying, “oh yes” I loved the creamy Earth Balance and then I found the chunky version and I love it just a little more. But, I am even more excited to try your almond version. Thanks for this recipe.
