Wow, so I have to say it has been really difficult traveling and living in a hotel room with a non working sink, no kitchen, and very FEW options to get any remotely Paleo food. And just as a reminder, I am only like 350 fans away on Facebook from starting another HUGE giveaway. So spread the word, get your friends to like my page and then its on. Oh yea and for the random fact of the day, it was 10 years ago today, I took my first steps on the yellow foot prints at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island to become a Marine. That’s all, have an amazing day and enjoy this simple, delicious recipe.
Cocoa Espresso Almond Butter
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon ground espresso
- 1 tablespoon raw organic honey (optional)
- 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (Optional, read the notes below)
- Using a coffee grinder, grind your espresso
- Place your almonds whether raw or roasted into your Blendtec, food processor, or ninja and run until you get your nut butter consistency
- Next add in your cocoa powder and espresso and blend well
- If you would like to sweeten it a bit, add the honey and blend until well incorporated
- Also if you want it smoother while using raw almonds, like I said in the notes below you can add some coconut oil
- That’s it, your all done. Now go use it on whatever your little heart desires
If you use raw almonds, they don’t release as much oil so you will not get smooth creamy almond butter. If you prefer it smooth you can either roast your almonds on a cookie sheet at 350 for 10-12 minutes or add a few tbsp of melted coconut oil and blend well.
