RECIPE: Nut Butter Chocolate Treats -- Healthy and Delicious (Use Almond or Peanut Butter)

I made my own almond butter for this batch, and left some almond chunks, YUM!
It is so much fun to bring the tastiest -- and healthiest -- treats to parties and potlucks. And when people realize that they are healthy, they get excited. Finally something healthy that tastes amazing, and super easy to make, too!


1/2 cup raw honey 
3/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil (NOT expeller pressed) 
1/4 cup grassfed butter (I use Anchor brand) 
1 1/2 cup almond butter 
1/4 cup raw cacao powder

I also add some Himalayan pink salt and some homemade vanilla extract to my recipe.


Mix all the ingredients on LOW heat until just barely melted.
Put wax paper down on a cookie sheet that has a lip (not one that is flat all around) 
Spread the mix on the cookie sheet. 
Put in freezer (on level surface) for an hour or so until it is quite solid. 
Then cut or break into pieces. Enjoy!!

TIP: Store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Sometimes I use miniature baking cups, when I want a better "presentation"

And, I especially like the health benefits of raw cacao.... It has a ton of antioxidants in it and some great minerals, especially magnesium. The only thing to be aware of is that it has a higher level of theobromine, which can act as a stimulant. Milk chocolate does not have much theobromine in it, but the darker, raw cacao does.
