I always make nut spreads; my favorite is roasted almonds with flax. Last year, I made Almond Joy butter. It was amazing. Is candy bar on toast? Yes, please.

Spreads can benefit from minor ingredient changes that have a big flavor payoff. Proof? This brownie batter spread is foolproof and tastes exactly like a fudgy chocolate brownie for the win.

You probably already have 6 of the ingredients needed to make this spread!

Almonds or Walnuts

It takes only 30 minutes to prepare, and you can do it all in your food processor. Less mess, less time, less grocery shopping. This is our motto.

This spread is thicker and more substantial than the average nut butter. This is not it. It’s super chocolatey and dense. This spread is a must-have. It’s:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups raw almonds
  • Raw walnuts or pecans, 1 cup
  • If dry, soak dates in warm water and drain.
  • Half a cup of dairy-free dark or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • Unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder, 1 Tbsp
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spread the nuts evenly onto a baking tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the nuts are golden and cracking. Cool the oven.
  • Add dates to a processor while the nuts are baking and blend until you get a paste. Scrape out the dates and set them aside.
  • Add a slightly cooled nut to a food processor and blend until butter is formed. Scrape down the sides as necessary.
  • Pour chocolate chips, place the lid on for 1 minute, and let it melt. Then blend well.
  • Mix again, adding salt and cocoa powder.
  • Add date paste little by little until you reach a thick batter that can be spread. Save any date paste left for other nut butter or to sweeten oatmeal or smoothies. Transfer the date paste to a jar after blending thoroughly. It will become hard if you refrigerate it, so I suggest leaving it out at room temperature (like you would with Nutella).
  • Spread it on toast or pancakes (vegan, banana, or coconut cream pie), or add it to shakes or smoothies.
