Make vanilla almond butter that tastes exactly like the RX Bar version at home with this easy and recipe with extra protein! It’s amazing with a banana or simply on toast!
Ever since RX Bar launched their nut butter packets I’ve been hooked! They were a great snack on my recent trip to Thailand, and are perfect for having after the gym or on-the-go with an apple or banana. The flavor combination of almond and vanilla is super good and just really natural tasting — not fake at all like other flavored things can be.
All of the flavors of the RX bar nut butter packets are delicious (hello maple!) and I got to thinking (because my supply of vanilla almond butter was dwindling) that there’s got to be an easy way to redo the recipe at home. Enter this recipe for vanilla almond butter with a protein twist that tastes just as good as the real thing.

Vanilla Almond Butter
- 2 cups raw almonds
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil melted
- 1-2 pitted dates for less sweetness, use 1
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- collagen optional
- In a food processor combine almonds, dates, coconut oil, vanilla extract, salt and collagen.
- Pulse for 4-5 minutes until it looks like almond butter is starting to form at the bottom of your bowl. At first the nuts will look like they are just finely chopped–- don’t worry it will start turning to almond butter!
- Scrap the sides of the food processor bowl occasionally if needed.
- Once the nut butter is at a spreadable consistency, scrape it out of food processor and into a glass jar.
- Store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
