Cocoa Nut Almond Butter

Cocoa Nut Almond Butter

I got a new Twister Jar for my Blendtec blender.  The twister jar is designed to blend thicker recipes, such as this nut butter.  This recipe comes from the cookbook that came with the twister jar.  I’m thinking if you have a heavy duty blender or food processor then you could make some nut butter too.

1 1/4 cups roasted, unsalted almonds (almonds are easy to roast in your oven, set oven to 350, spread almonds on a cookie sheet and roast for 10 – 12 minutes, you can tell when they’re done because you can start to smell them)

2 tablespoons cocoa

2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes

3 tablespoons sugar

1/16 – 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

Add ingredients to jar in order listed and place twister lid on jar.  Hold twister lid and with other hand press speed up to speed 7, run for 40 seconds and press pulse to stop.  Turn twister lid counter clockwise during blending.

PS  It is delicious with apples!
