Author Notes: This almond butter is both healthy and decadent. Slightly bitter from the cocoa with a hint of sweetness from the maple. Delicious spread over fruit, toast or topped on oatmeal. —dmichaan
Makes: 1 cup
tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder
tablespoons pure maple syrup
teaspoon pink sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 350.
- Spread the almonds on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes. Turn a few times so the almonds don't burn. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
- Add the almonds to a food processor and process until creamy and buttery. This will take some time. Add the rest of your ingredients and continue to process. Scraping the sides down. This butter took about 15 minutes so be patient...
