I love my Dark Chocolate Dreams PB, but honestly…I like almond butter than peanut butter.

I haven’t seen chocolate almond butter (I’m sure it exists somewhere, but I haven’t seen it yet), so today…I decided to make my own. Why not, right? :mrgreen:

(Most) ingredients gathered: nut butter of choice (mine is Barney Butter), unsweetened cocoa powder.

This recipe should work with any nut butter – sunflower butter, peanut butter, etc. Use what is your fave.

Small, microwave-safe bowl and spoon needed.

Add nut butter to bowl.

Add cocoa powder. Mix just a little (you probably won’t get far because of the consistency).

Add sweetener of choice (I used a combo of organic cane sugar and agave syrup) plus a bit of milk.

Microwave for 10-20 seconds to get ingredients to mesh easier.

At first, the mixture will look odd – a lump of nut butter and a lot of liquid. Keep working the mixture until it comes together.

Voila! Dark Chocolate Almond Butter. Mmm…

I enjoyed mine over basic oatmeal (with flaxseed and chia seeds) and hot coffee.

Stirred up…yum!

My batch made enough for toast later!
