  1. Soften the coconut oil in hot water.
  2. With electric beaters, beat together the coconut oil and almond butter.

  4. Pour in the maple syrup or the sweetener of your choice, vanilla, and salt and beat until smooth.
  5. Stir in the walnuts or pecans.

Recipe Notes

If you have access try using yácon syrup. It has a lovely malty taste (reminds me a little of molasses). Yácon syrup has half the calories of sugar and other sweeteners, is low-glycemic and a prebiotic, making it good for the gut.
