I love almond butter. What I love even more is making these creations with other superfood ingredients! Cacao has tons of health benefits and antioxidants! When you add just a little to the almond butter, it taste like (clean!) chocolate cake batter – except nutritious! This is so easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already. Go make this and say goodbye to any GUILTY food cravings you may have because this will surely solve your sweet tooth!


  • 1 jar 100% almond butter
  • 2 heaping tbsp cacao (or 100% pure unsweet cocoa will do)
  • 1 tbsp honey (or 100% pure maple syrup)
  • 1 tsp vanilla (be sure it’s 100% pure vanilla and not imitation)
  • Large pinch of sea salt (Himalayan is best)

Method: Take your jar of almond butter and add all of the ingredients to it. Mix well. You can also mix all of this in a large bowl if your container does not have much room to stir.

Enjoy with apples, rice cake, or by the spoonful! Just don’t overdo it 😉



Salted Vanilla Almond Butter


Do you ever see those expensive but delicious looking almond butters in the grocery store? I know I have and I’m always tempted to buy them!  I’ve decided to start playing around with my own creations. This, for example, costs way less than the $13 fancy nut butters you often see! It’s really easy to make, too and you have flexibility to be creative with your ingredients!


  • 1 jar nut butter (I used almond)
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • sea salt
  • pure vanilla

Simply place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. I guessed on the salt – I don’t measure much. Probably 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix well then pour back into container. Done! I like to spread mine over an organic rice cake or eat with organic apples or a banana! I love this more than peanut butter – and almond butter is better for you than peanut butter, so try this recipe out and see for yourself. I’ve even been told that others think it tastes like donuts! It’s the best! Trader Joe’s has awesome prices on their almond butters so I highly recommend you go there and stock up! Be sure ingredients only say ALMONDS!
