Almond Butter

Our single ingredient almond butter is the perfect addition of delicious healthy fats to your diet. Smooth and creamy in texture; mild and nutty in flavor. Enjoy it drizzled over fresh fruit, in your smoothie or a spoonful on its own.

Here are 3 fun facts about almonds that make us want to dive right into a jar of almond butter right away:

  • they have a high mineral content, containing essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium

  • almonds are rich in healthy fats - in particular, ALA omega 3 fats - hello brain food!

  • almonds are high in Vitamin E - which is a fat-soluble vitamin responsible for fighting free radicals and helping to repair damaged skin

FAQ

Can I swap almond butter for a different nut butter? Sure! You could swap almond butter for any of our organic nut butters - pistachio butter would be especially delicious and has a similar consistency to almond butter. 

Do I need to add the maple syrup? Though these almond butter cups are just lightly sweetened - feel free to skip the maple syrup or add less if you wish to cut down on the amount of sugar. 

I don't like the taste of coconut oil. Can I swap for something else? We wouldn't recommend it - as the coconut oil helps these almond butter cups to solidify. Instead, opt for refined coconut oil - which is flavourless!

This recipe makes ~ 20 mini almond butter cups. For equipment, you will need a mini muffin tin, paper muffin cups/ liners, and a double boiler for melting the chocolate.
