Make your own dark chocolate almond butter at home! Completely easy, healthy, and delicious!
- 2 cups unsalted roasted almonds

- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon sea salt

Add almonds to food processor and process for 10-15 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary. At this point the almonds should start to clump together. Continue to process until you reach the desired consistency. I always process until my almond butter is liquid like.
Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in small saucepan over very low heat. Stir consistently until completely melted and smooth. Add chocolate, cocoa powder, vanilla, honey, and sea salt to almond butter and process again until smooth.
Transfer to mason jar or container and store at room temperature or in fridge. If you store at room temp, simply give the almond butter a stir before you use it.
To make vegan, replace honey with maple syrup or agave and use a vegan chocolate.
