Print Recipe


  • 2 tablespoons almond butter (I like to use homemade, or the Raw Almond Butter from Trader Joe's)
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons maple syrup , to taste
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons hot water , as needed to thin


  • In a small bowl, combine the almond butter, cacao powder, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, a pinch of salt, and 1 tablespoon of water. Use a whisk to stir well.
  • Taste the mixture, and if you want it sweeter, add 1 more tablespoon of maple syrup. If you don't need the added sweetness, add 1 tablespoon of water instead. Whisk again, until a silky smooth chocolate sauce is created. Add more water if you need to thin it out any further.
  • Serve this sauce right away over your favorite ice cream or dessert. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days, but it will thicken when chilled, so you might need to thin it out with more water before serving it again.
