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.

Coconut Almond Butter

homemade almond butter

by with a Side of Sneakers


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


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


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.

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.
