A Sweet Treat To Be Eaten In Moderation

The recipe was a pleasant surprise for me, which I found in the Twister Jar Recipe Book that came with my Blendtec Twister Jar. The Twister Jar is a specialty jar made for the Blendtec Blender, which makes making nut butters and flour a bit easier. As you can see it also makes making specialty recipes easier also.

Now I do have to say that this recipe will serve as a treat for me and is not a staple of my vegan diet. The recipe calls for sugar, and I do limit the amount of foods that I eat that contain additive sugar, even if it is natural sugar.

This cocoa-nut almond butter is really good. I made some this past weekend and brought it to a friend’s home to serve as a snack while we watched some boxing matches. We all enjoyed the cocoa-nut almond butter, which I call a fudge because it has that type of taste. I felt a little guilty because my friend’s wife really like the fudge and she kept going to back for more of the sweets. I am careful to not eat so much at one time because it contains additive sugar. Anyway, the fudge was a huge success.

Cocoa-Nut Almond Butter – Vegan Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup Raw Almonds (The recipe calls roasted almonds but I only had raw almonds)
  • 2 tablespoons Cacao Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil (The recipe calls for unsweetened coconut flakes to be used with roasted almonds. Since I didn't use roasted almonds, I used coconut oil with the raw almonds)
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Sugar (The recipe calls for any granulated sugar)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan Salt (The recipe calls for kosher salt)
