This recipe is low carb, sugar free, low fat, dairy free, and a Trim Healthy Mama FP!
Several weeks ago the idea came to me for a chocolate and peanut butter spread. I jotted the idea down in the back of my “master” notebook (my notebook for everything!), and kept right on going. I actually forgot about it!
This week I was doing some recipe testing, and I happened to see this at the back of my notebook, on my recipe ideas page.
I figured it should be something fairly simple, so I set to work. It took me a couple of tries to get it to the exact taste I wanted.
But when I finally did, WOW! I can hardly believe that this is a Fuel Pull for Trim Healthy Mamas! (This simply means it is low in both carbs and fats.)
I slathered some on a piece of sprouted toast for my photos, fully intending to eat it for breakfast. But alas, my three year old got to it before me! Ha!
When my other two children (ages 10 and 9) saw what their little sister had, they decided they needed some as well. So you can rest assured that this recipe is family friendly!
Even my husband was excited about this chocolate peanut butter! He was very thrilled to think that he could possibly slather some on sprouted toast with a few small slices of banana. (Yes, I think he was even giddy. Ok, well maybe that is an exaggeration, but he was excited about all the possibilities!)
The texture of this chocolate peanut butter is so rich and smooth - almost like velvet. The texture actually reminded me of the texture of Nutella. (Though this does not taste like Nutella since there are no hazelnuts. See below for Nutella options!)
Watch my video below to see exactly how to make it - and one of my favorite ways to use it!
Using Chocolate Peanut Butter
You may be wondering, how exactly can I use this Chocolate Peanut Butter?
Well, there are a variety of options.
I’ve already mentioned that my children enjoyed it on toast this morning for breakfast. If you spread it on while your toast is still warm, it gets melty and is just perfect! (I use sprouted toast.)
You can also use it as a dip for fruit! Cut half a banana into small slices and use them for dipping! You could also dip apple slices, strawberries, raspberries, or other berries. The options are endless!
And probably my favorite way - eat it with a spoon! I kept finding myself sneaking over to the jar for just another little spoonful!
This chocolate peanut butter is so thick, I think it would work great as a frosting, too. I mean, who wouldn’t want to eat cake topped with chocolate and peanut butter?
A Healthy Snack
I’m telling you, this stuff could be addictive. I told my husband that I just wanted to eat it with a spoon. His response, “Well, it can’t be THAT healthy!”
Well actually, it can be! There is a good bit of protein from the peanut flour, and the cocoa has fiber. The other ingredients are harmless as well! This is a snack you can feel good about!
One of my blogging friends has a similar recipe, Nutty Chocolate Spread, but she gives instructions in her post about how to make it taste like Nutella! Oh wow, can you imagine sugar-free, healthy Nutella?
She also uses a few super food ingredients, such as collagen and MCT oil. Be sure to check out her Nutty Chocolate Spread! (She even tweaked it a bit to make Nutty Caramel Sauce, which looks absolutely amazing!

What do you need for this Chocolate Peanut Butter?
1 Cup Peanut Flour
2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
½ Teaspoon Salt
6 Tablespoons Gentle Sweet or my Low Carb Powdered Sugar (or your favorite powdered sweetener)
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
½ Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
This recipe makes approximately 1 cup. If you want to try it before you make that much, it is easy to cut the ingredients in half and only make half a recipe.
But I will warn you, I made a full cup today, and it is already GONE! My 10 year old asked me to “please make a gallon of that stuff.” (I think it’s safe to say this recipe is a hit around my house!)

Oh, I just made some rolls that were good fresh out of the oven, but second day they need toasting... I think I'll make up some of these and go for that melty goodness!
I love this!!!!!
I'm so glad you enjoy it!
Made this just now and I tried a spoonful and it is sooo delish!! Also gave a spoonful to my grandma and she loved it also. 🙂 Can’t wait to try it with strawberries!
This is amazing! You had perfect timing! I am doing a fuel pull day and it was just the sweet ending I needed to my lunch. I ate it totally plain too! 😋
This looks amazing. What kind of sprouted bread do u get and where? Thx
I usually buy Silver Hills Sprouted bread and I buy mine at Natural Grocers. However, I believe some Targets also sell it!
So, if there is some left after making it, how should it be stored and how long can it last?
It should be good for a week or two in the fridge (but mine has never lasted that long). 🙂
Mine came out really thick...should I just add more cashew milk?(I used that instead of almond milk)
Yes, you can simply add a little more until it is the right consistency.
I am in LOVE with this delicious frosting! I make a batch every Sunday and portion out two tablespoons into condiment cups with a lid and store them in the fridge. I enjoy one every night after dinner as for a sweet treat. It hits the spot every time!
Sarah, you've outdone yourself on this one! Oh. My. GOODNESS!!
I smeared it on an on-plan Wasa light-rye cracker for the sweet and crunchy combo. And then realized your Chocolate PB is the perfect FP frosting for Sheri Graham's chocolate or vanilla cakes! https://sherigraham.com/vanilla-cake-master-mix-thm-fp/
I've been looking for a chocolate FP treat and boy oh boy, did you ever deliver! Thank you!!
I like this, but it’s a little too salty for me. May cut back on that next time. Otherwise, I’m excited to try this on some sprouted toast with banana in the morning!!
Yummy! What an amazing recipe! Thanks so much!
This is wonderful!! I used 1 t. Vanilla, and 1 t. Hazelnut, Aand added 1 t. MCT. Thank you so much for this!! You are fantastic.
I added this to vanilla 000 yogurt. It's delicious. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
o my..I just want to hold the whole jar and enjoy it with a big tablespoon 🙂
This was Amazing...easy and beyond perfect I mixed it in cottage cheese!!!!
Do you think it would work with water instead of almond milk? I am traveling and will not have access to refrigeration...Thanks!
I think so - the almond milk just helps to make it a bit more creamy and fudge-like.
I have made this spread 3x’s in the last week! Finally I doubled the recipe and I hoping it will last me a little longer. So good! When I feel a sweet craving coming on-I spread this on strawberries or a fuel pull muffin! Thank you so much for this recipe!❤️
It is one of my new go-to's as well! I'm so glad you like it, Nicole!
Loved it.........Thanks for this creation! If I want it a little thicker do you have any suggestions?
So glad you liked it, Doreen! If you want it thicker, just use a little less almond milk.
Holy moly! I can’t believe how good this is! I don’t know why I didn’t make it sooner. It satisfies my need for a sweet with an E meal.
Love it, I'll cut back on sweetener and cocia, next time. Can't wait to try it on sprouted toast with planar peach jelly. Thank you.
Do you know if almond flour would work?
Hi Laurel! No, unfortunately almond flour would not work in this recipe. The peanut flour is what gives it the peanut butter flavor. 🙂
Would peanut powder work in place of peanut flour? I can't find peanut flour in any stores in my area.
Yes, it should be the same thing!
I'll try the peanut powder next time. The flavor is super but flour I have is way too gritty. Also came out very runny, cut back on the almond milk?
Yes, you may need to adjust depending on what brand of peanut flour you use.
Just made this...delish!! A winner!
This spread is amazing & addictive! I like to add 2 TBSP to my oatmeal...it tastes like a no bake cookie. I've made it several times and my Nutella loving, turned THM husband absolutely loves it! Thank you!
Delicious! There’s nothing else to say. 🙂
Could you sub [email protected] for the peanut flour. I don't have a cup on hand.
Yes, that should work. (Just be aware that most PB2 has sugar added.) 🙂
Could I use almond flour instead of peanut flour and still be in FP mode?
No, I don't believe so. And almond flour would change the texture significantly. 🙁
What could I substitute for the almond milk? I have family that is allergic to almonds.... but not other nuts. Thank you!
You could use cashew milk.
Hi Sarah. Would could you pair this with to keep it as a FP snack? Thanks, Andrea
Just tried this and it has officially entered my new rotation! I’ve been craving something sweet and this perfect! A healthy smear on sprouted toast with a side of berries for breakfast is just what I needed. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
This looks amazing. I am already imagining my e lunch with Ezekiel bread and this with banana slices. I did have one question first though. Knowing me, I will just add the Pyure straight out of the bag the first time, as that is the way I always use it no matter what sweetener is called for. However, I am now curious. What would you say is the best way to grind they Pyure. I have a blender (not the fanciest and it works best for drinks, though I have ground oats to make the THM pancakes before) and I have a food processor. I am not sure if either of those would work to grind something that is already quite fine already.
You sound like my twin! Ha ha! I always use just one sweetener for everything too. I was also wondering if my bullet could grind it. Hmmmm?

I just let my granular Gentle Sweet sit in the almond milk a few minutes, stir it up a few times, then once it’s mostly dissolved I pour the sweetened milk into the dry ingredients in the food processor part of the Ninja. Blends up super smooth!
Thank you for this recipe! I started THM a week a go and have been dying for something sweet! All the other recipes I tried were huge flops to my coming off of sugar tastebuds. This one is PERFECT. Chocolate+peanut butter without the guilt. 🙂
I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
Finally something quick easy & actually is a healthier alternative to Nutella! 😋
Why, oh why, did I wait so long to try this recipe. I've read it many times. Have added to my must try list but didn' t make it till this morning. Wow! A game changer!! Too bad I've already eaten or I'd be having me some toast with choc pbutter spread and some thinly sliced banana. I know what's for brkfst tmrw 🙂
Thank you for experimenting, creating and sharing so we can enjoy.
Oh my goodness this is truly the bomb. I just made it and it does not disappoint. I made it with Monk fruit sweetener which (from what I can tell) is also an on plan THM sweetener. I mixed up the quantities of tbsp to cup measures so I made it extra sweet. I will definitely be cutting down on the sweet factor next time but I'm making this for cookies in another recipe so I just won't add as much sweetener to the cookie recipe and it should all even out in the wash. haha. I will definitely be making this again. I am a new THMer and having a few gems like this will help me to maintain my sanity. lol. Thanks!
This is amazing. My husband and I have a nice coffee together after lunch, we used this in place of chocolate chips/sauce in the mochas today, it was perfect! He blended it hot and I stick blended it cold. Both stayed suspended and tastes great! This is going to become a staple in my house to replace e the surgery choclates
Oh wow, I would never have thought to put it in coffee! Thank you so much for sharing!
Thank you for sharing! This was the closest thing I have found to Nutella. Love this on fresh strawberries!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Just licked the spoon and can't wait to brainstorm all the ways to use this!
This is my go to FP snack! It’s so good! I added cinnamon to the batch I just made, holy is it good!! 🤤🤤😍😍
I have been making a double batch of thm oatmeal to go muffins with the bananas called for in the recipe. I omit the blueberries and bake it in a 9 by 13 pan. I cut it into 12 servings and spread this inside after I cut it in half horizontally. It is delicious! I got the idea from someone who posted something similar on a thm Facebook post. Thanks for the yummy recipe!
This is just what sweet chocolate craving needs! So fast and easy to make. Totally scrumptious just by itself. Thank you !
Thanks, Sherry! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
So easy to throw together and so very, very yummy! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
