|White Mocha Almond Butter
|12 minutes (roasting)
|Approximately 30 minutes
|About 24 servings
|Approximately 2 cups
- 2 cups of whole almonds, roasted
- 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons of instant coffee granules
- 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar (adjust to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1. Roast the Almonds:
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Spread the almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer.
- Roast for about 10-12 minutes until they turn slightly golden and fragrant. Be careful not to overcook, as they can quickly go from golden to burnt.
2. Cool the Almonds:
- Let the roasted almonds cool for a few minutes.
3. Blend the Almonds:
- Transfer the roasted almonds to a food processor or high-powered blender.
- Start processing at low speed and gradually increase it to high.
- Blend until the almonds turn into a smooth and creamy almond butter consistency. This process can take 10-15 minutes, depending on your equipment. Be patient; it’s worth it!
4. Add the Flavor:
- While the almond butter is still warm, add in the white chocolate chips, instant coffee granules, powdered sugar, salt, and vanilla extract.
- Continue blending until all the ingredients are well combined, and the white chocolate chips have melted into the almond butter, creating a marbled appearance.
5. Taste and Adjust:
- Taste your white mocha almond butter and adjust the sweetness or coffee flavor to your preference by adding more powdered sugar or instant coffee if needed.
- Transfer your creamy white mocha almond butter to an airtight container. It can be stored at room temperature for a week or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. If it lasts that long!
- Spread this delectable creation on toast, pancakes, waffles, or use it as a dip for apple slices. You can even use it as a unique ingredient in baking or as a topping for ice cream.

I’ve been off of caffeine since before John and I started trying to get pregnant. When I used to enjoy a daily cup (or two), I never felt as though I needed the jolt to get my day started (I’ve always been a morning person), but if I didn’t have my daily dose of caffeine, I would inevitably get the dreaded withdrawal headache by the afternoon.
My solution was to slowly wean myself off by gradually increasing the ratio of decaf:caf in my morning coffee. After a couple of weeks or so, I didn’t miss the caffeine one bit!
I’m still off of caffeine for the most part since I’m nursing Lily – I do savor a small cup of coffee every weekend when John makes a pot – but I just had to make a mocha-flavored almond butter.
White mocha, actually.
That’s white chocolate + coffee. In homemade almond butter. What’s not to love?!
I’ve never had the decadent-sounding white mocha beverage from Starbucks, but it was the inspiration for this deliciously thick and creamy almond butter.
The coffee flavor (from instant espresso powder) is subtle, so add more according to your taste preference.
