This Chocolate Peppermint Almond Butter tastes like dessert, but is only made with a few good-for-you ingredients!  Perfect on toast, in your morning oats, or with an apple.


  • 2 cups almonds
  • 3/41 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3/4 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread almonds out on a baking tray.
  3. Roast almonds for 5 minutes. Take out and stir. Roast for 3 minutes. Take out and stir. Roast for 3 minutes.
  4. Put almonds into the food processor. Turn the processor on high until a nut butter consistency forms. It may seem like this will never happen, but trust me it will!
  5. Add in the cocoa powder, coconut oil, peppermint extract, vanilla extract, and maple syrup.
  6. Turn the food processor on high once again until everything is combined.


Since this almond butter has coconut oil in it, it may slightly harden overtime.  It will return to its regular consistency if you pop it in the microwave for a few seconds or even spread on some warm toast!
