Double Chocolate Pecan Almond Butter

You really need this Double Chocolate Almond Pecan Butter in your life STAT. Just almonds, pecans, dark chocolate chips and cacao powder for an antioxidant boost!

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: ~2 cups
  • Scale:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups pecans, lightly toasted
  • 2 cups almonds, lightly toasted
  • 1/3 cup quality dark chocolate chips (or about 4oz bar, chopped)
  • 3 TBS cacao powder

Instructions

  1. Place slightly cooled nuts in bowl of food processor and cover with lid. Process for about 1 to 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl periodically if necessary.
  2. Once the nuts have broken down and a butter starts to form, add in chocolate chips and cacao powder. Process the butter for another 2-3 minutes, or until desired consistency.
  3. Transfer Double Chocolate Almond Pecan Butter to jar with lid. Butter can be stored in pantry, or fridge for longer periods of time.

Recipes Notes:

-I like to buy raw nuts and toast them in the oven at 325F for 8-10 minutes (and then allowing to cool slightly) before adding them to the food processor. You can buy pre-roasted nuts if you like, but watch out for unnecessary/added oils. -Process your butter to desired consistency. I like a drippy nut butter so I tend to process a bit longer. If you want thicker, process for less time, or store in fridge to help thicken. -Processing times may vary depending on size and brand of food processor. I own a Breville 12 cup and I highly recommend!
