Dark Chocolate Swirl Coconut Almond Butter (aka Almond Joy Butter)


I’m finally back with a recipe!


Inspiration for this delectable almond butter came from a cup of Chobani’s Almond Coco Loco flip yogurt. As I savored devoured each bite of the creamy coconut yogurt studded with crunchy almond slices and sweet dark chocolate, it occurred to me that the almond joy flavors would be awesome in a nut butter.


All you need to do is process together some unsweetened coconut flakes and roasted almonds, then toss in some chopped dark chocolate.


So where does the swirl come in? As the food processor works to butterize the almonds and coconut, the steel blade heats up; when you add in the chopped chocolate, it melts and swirls into the coconut almond butter.


Clearly you should make a batch of this dessert-worthy almond butter this weekend!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Keywords: side snack vegetarian almonds chocolate coconut

Ingredients (1 small jar)

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 cups dry roasted almonds
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped dark chocolate


Place coconut flakes into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade, and process until a paste forms.

Add in the almonds and process until a smooth, drippy butter forms, scraping down the sides as needed. This may take 5+ minutes… be patient! Let sit for a few minutes to partially cool.

Add in the chopped chocolate and pulse a few times. The heat from blade will partially melt the chocolate.

Store at room temperature.
