Chocolate Almond Butter


Almonds and chocolate chips packed along as trail mix, on a hike to Amicalola Falls. It promptly melted in the heat. It was an optimistic fall hike. 


Dump the whole thing in my food processor, and whirl away until it became Chocolate Almond Butter. And you thought we were fancy.

Chocolate Almond Butter

2 cups almonds
1/4 cup chocolate chips- can use cocoa powder
Canola oil

1. Ideally, roast the almonds. Then dump in a food processor with chocolate chips or cocoa powder.

2. Process- it will go from small gravel to powder to paste- keep going. Add a bit of canola oil to ease the process. It also helps to keep it spreadable.

3. Eat with pears, apples, fruits; spread on toast, use like regular almond butter.
