Best Thing Ever Almond Butter Buckeye Recipe [S]
This decadent recipe is shared generously from the book the Sweeter Side of Candida. You can make these with peanut butter, but the almond butter is really amazingly good...it reminds me of cookie dough! Yields: 20 buckeyes
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 10
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup raw almond butter* or almond flour, or 1 cup whole almonds
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of celtic sea salt
  • ½ cup xylitol granules
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon (optional-I omitted)Chocolate Coating
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup raw cacao powder (I used regular cocoa powder)
  • pinch of celtic sea salt
  • stevia extract to taste
  1. I didn't have raw almond butter, but I did have ¾ cups of Honeyville almond flour (or 1 cup whole almonds). Measure into a food processor or blender, and let it run for several minutes until it gets clumpy.
  2. Add butter, xylitol granules, salt, and vanilla and pulse to combine. It should be fluffy & creamy.
  3. Alternatively, simply mix almond or peanut butter with butter, vanilla, salt, xylitol, and cinnamon (optional).
  4. Using a small scoop, form balls, placing them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  5. Freeze for at least 20 minutes, while preparing the chocolate coating.To prepare chocolate coating:
  6. In a 2 cup measuring cup or taller bowl, cream room temp coconut oil with cocoa powder and add stevia to taste. Warm very slightly by microwaving for 20 seconds or by setting bowl in a warm water...*just* until cocoa mixture becomes liquid. Overheating the mix will make your coating very thin.
  7. My coconut oil had some small clumps, so I opted to strain those out for a smoother coating.
  8. Remove buckeyes from the freezer, and dip using a toothpick or fork- covering all but the top of the buckeye.
  9. Return to cookie sheet, and re-freeze/re-dip if desired.
  10. Store in the freezer, and keep chilled to serve.
