Just act like you didn’t see it coming . . .

I mean it is my birthday month after all which gives me just the excuse I needed (as if I really need one?!) to make a brand new, insanely delicious, seriously indulgent, yet secretly healthy, nut butter obsession to share with you.

And ummmmmm this right here . . .

This little jar of heaven aka – chocolate pistachio almond butter . . .

It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

It’s decadent and rich, subtly sweet, velvety smooth, seriously creamy, deliciously indulgent and simply divine.

Something about the subtle, slightly savory, flavor profile of those pretty little oven roasted pistachio’s combined with our buttery almonds, a sweet splash of vanilla, the decadent, richness of our cacao and that cheeky pinch of salt . . .

I mean, I thought the original, salted pistachio almond butter we made was all kinds of awesome (which it really, REALLY is!) but, this chocolate version is next level!

I think we can all agree that a touch of chocolate just makes everything better, am I right?!

Oh you know I am!

And this right here, this chocolate pistachio almond butter we’re making . . . is in a world of it’s own!

It’s thick and creamy, deliciously buttery, subtly sweet, seriously chocolatey, lightly salted and well, like you,  all kinds of incredible!

Honestly, I don’t know what else to tell you . . .

Chocolate Pistachio Almond Butter
{Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Keto & Paleo Friendly}

Makes approx 2 1/2 cups all natural, quick and easy, deliciously indulgent, seriously chocolatey creamy, dreamy, velvety smooth, lightly salted, healthy, homemade, chocolate pistachio almond butter

Ingredients –

2  cup of raw almonds

1  cup of pistachios, shelled

2 Tablespoons of cacao

1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract or 10-12 drops of Vanilla Cream Stevia – I use Sweet Leaf Stevia

1/2 (heaping) teaspoon of salt flakes

Method –

1 – Preheat your oven to 175’C (350’F)

2 – Line a large baking sheet with baking/parchment paper (or a non stick silpat mat) then add your almonds and pistachios, making sure they are spread evenly – aka not crowded.

3 – Roast your nuts for 7-10 minutes, until gloriously golden, deliciously fragrant and lightly toasted.

4 – Pour your golden, delicious roasted nuts into the bowl of your food processor or blender, add salt and process until smooth and creamy (or your desired consistency). Initially the almonds would grind down into a powder, give it a minute or two and the oils will extract and it will become deliciously, thick, rich and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally.

5 – Add cacao and vanilla and process to combine then have a cheeky taste (or two) and adjust as needed.

Note – If you prefer a thinner consistency feel free to add a drizzle of coconut oil to thin it out.

6 – Store in an airtight container in the fridge. It should keep well for up to 2 weeks – but I highly doubt it will last that long! (← seriously, good luck with that 😉 )

Enjoy xoxo
