I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

I’m finally back with a recipe!

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

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.

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.
