Picking a favorite nut butter is like being forced to choose a favorite child. In which case, I’d choose almond butter.

…my poor future children. OY.

With everyone getting their panties in a bunch over the glory that is peanut butter, I’m over there in the corner hoarding my insanely expensive jar of almond butter. What can I say? I have expensive taste.

But for real, almond butter is the true joy of my life and is perhaps what I miss most when I’m travelling.

Oh wait, I totally travel with my almond butter.

When it comes to breakfast, I can be so so boring. I go in food ruts where I have the same thing for breakfast every single day for months and then one day wake up and decide that I’m sick of it. I vacillate between smoothie bowls and oats and occasionally pancakes, but no matter what phase I’m in, there will always be almond butter.

And as I’ve discovered, almond butter is to chocolate as peanut butter is to jelly. If that doesn’t make almond butter better than peanut butter, I don’t know what will. So basically I will be feeding future children almond butter and chocolate sandwiches…which hopefully will make up for the fact that I totally just picked favorites.

Thisย Chocolate Almond Butter Overnight Oats recipe is actually an old favorite. I probably ate this every single day for a year a few years back. Likelyย BBE (before the blogging era), which would explain why it never made an appearance on the blog. But lately I’ve been getting sentimental and including some throwback recipes to old flavor faves.

In the process I’ve also been reunited with my love for this recipe. So onto an old/new breakfast phase! Not surprisingly, it includes almond butter!

  1. Nut butters….give me any and all of them! haha! Add in chocolate, and I’m sold! I love breakfast for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  2. I love nut butter and chocolate together so so so much! I think if I had to choose one it would be peanut butter … my guess is this love dates back to days of PB&J packed in school lunches.

  3. The real question is, how do you get your almond butter to look like that?!? When I try to make mine look pretty it just globs up haha.

  4. I am seriously SO guilty of eating almond butter and dark chocolate every single day. Once I discovered the birth of almond butter I immediately became HOOKED. I still love peanut butter but there’s something so special about almond butter! It’s absolutely amazing. This oatmeal is a great way to put these two lovebirds together, haha! And by the way, I have NO shame in eating almond butter and dark chocolate every day ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I honestly cannot decide between peanut or almond butter. I love all nut butters! I try not to discriminate ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haha thank you for sharing this recipe Davida! <3

    1. You’re right! Best not to discriminate. I truly do love both…just AB a bit more ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. This looks like a healthy dessert for breakfast. I love it! I totally go through breakfast phases of oatmeal bowls, protein shakes and straight up eggs.

    1. So many phases! It stays around for a while if it tastes like dessert for breakfast ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Always peanut butter. I really tried hard to like almond butter and I’ll eat it these days but peanut butter has all my love. That being said, I’d pair it with chocolate over jam/jelly any day.
    p.s. I have a totally full jar of AB in the fridge that I bought this week during an ‘I need to like almond butter phase’. Thanks for giving me something to finally do with it lol

    1. LOL for a second there I thought you might gift me the almond butter. My birthday is in August FYI ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Peanut butter is one of my least favourite nut butters, I’m all about that cashew butter! <3 Love this simple recipe and it's perfect way to get myself out of my own breakfast rut!!
    Also that has to be the prettiest and fanciest almond butter design ever. Pretty much art,

    1. awwwww you’re too sweet! Weirdly I’m not a huge cashew butter person. I think I need to give it another shot!

  9. I LOVE almond butter! I once tried to make my own at home, but it took forever and it was quite dry (maybe because I used roasted almonds for the process…). Since I bought a huge jar of organic, natural almond butter I put it in everything: my morning oats, protein bars, and even when I’m in need of dessert I eat a spoonful (ow two ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I love peanut butter too, but that is saltier and different than almond butter. What I haven’t tried yet is sunflowerseed butter. Since I keep hearing so many good things about it I’ll try it sooner or later (when my jar of almond butter gets empty ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have a lovely Sunday Davida!

    1. oooooh sunbutter is really good too! Almond butter will always win for me though. It definitely takes the longest to process if you are making it yourself, but it is so so worth it.
