Spiced Black Bean Cocoa ‘Butter’

This Spiced Cocoa Butter is exactly what you need if you’re a chocolate or nut butter fiend! Just like Nutella only much healthier and with a secret ingredient no one will guess, we recommend spreading this cocoa butter thick on your rice crackers, toast or apple segments. It also tastes great in a smoothie with some banana! A Nutribullet makes easy work of this spread, but you can also make it with any blender or food processor.

Makes 12 serves


1 x 400g can black beans, drained and rinsed

¼ cup cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

1–2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp coconut oil

½–⅔ cup milk (dairy-free milk also suitable)

Pinch of salt

⅓ cup roasted peanuts (or toasted hazelnuts)

4–5 tsp honey


1. Add all butter ingredients to Nutribullet or blender and blend until smooth.

Store in the fridge for 4–5 days
