Peppermint Patty Chocolate Almond Butter

I’m out of my funk!! I changed up my schedule a little bit, went shopping at World Market, ordered an adorable purple jacket on The Clymb, painted my nails, had a crazy hard workout, ate some leftover gluten free pizza, and just smiled. I’m pretty good at getting out of funks, mostly because I really don’t like being in a bad mood, so I just snapped out of it. Yay.

But let’s talk about this crazy hard workout I did yesterday. I don’t blab too much about every workout I do, but when it’s worth talking about and worth trying, I talk. So yesterday at CrossFit Broadway we had a workout that went like this:

Every Minute on the Minute for 24min: ( alternating)
Min 1: 200/175 m Row
Min 2: 6 Power Snatch (135/95)
Min 3: 15 Wall Ball

You barely get any rest between the row and snatch, then the snatches get extremely hard, then your legs start to get more and more tired each round. At least mine did. It was just so hard. You’re 3 rounds in and cussing up a storm. At least I did. I love workouts like that, to the point and miserable. You should try it. Do it.

Wanna hear something interesting? Ok good. So I got this email yesterday about sending in a casting video to be part of a reality show about being part of the growing internet/blogging world. I tried to first picture what my casting video would be like, and second what a reality show with me in it would be like. I don’t think I have that much to offer. I mean, as I write this, I’m sitting on the table in my living room, watching E! network about celebrities and heading to the gym to coach soon. And that’s pretty much my day: Grocery shop, cook, eat, workout, eat, blog, social media, emails (I hate emails), piece of chocolate, sometimes wash my hair, coaching, dinner, and watch my favorite shows. That’s what it looks like. I’m pretty happy with my life but it doesn’t really make for good tv. The only thing that would be cool to watch is how swollen my feet get when I drink alcohol. Wait, my feet are totally ugly so I take that back. I got nothing. And if I have nothing worth watching, they would create something, wouldn’t you think?

I really want to do this with with my Coffee Cake Banana Bread. Yep. That looks to die for. How Sweet It Is never stops amazing me. I CANNOT WAIT until her cookbook comes out! I don’t give a crap that it’s not paleo. I know the photography in her cookbook is going to be jaw dropping.



Peppermint Patty Chocolate Almond Butter


  • 2 cups unsalted, roasted almonds
  • 34 tablespoons almond oil (depending how runny you like your almond butter)

  • pinch of salt


  1. Use a food processor to puree almonds until they are completely broken down and begin to thicken in a paste.
  2. While food processor is still pureeing, add almond oil tablespoon by tablespoons until the almonds become smooth, to your preference
  3. Then add peppermint extract, melted chocolate, and salt and puree once more until well incorporated.
  4. Eat with whatever you like. Celery, apples, bananas, spoon.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I love your recipes and got my library to get a copy of your cookbook in. Now it’s borrowed so much I hardly see it. (I’m saving up to buy my own copy.)

    And I’d love to see a show with you in it but not sure reality tv… maybe a paleo cooking show? with guests and guest recipes. Or maybe just a blog with videos. 🙂

    Looking forward to trying this recipe. Not sure I could eat a whole spoon though.

  2. Juli- You should totally go on the reality TV show! I bet your application video would be hilarious and I think you could offer some realistic insight on what it’s like to be part of a internet/blogging world! That when it comes down to it, your routine is not what might be expected but it still works well for you. Everyone comes from a different background and yours is unique too! Plus, it would be great advertising for your site and cookbooks, and would spread the word about paleo and how delicious it can be! Go for it! Also this recipes sounds delicious!

  3. I’m with you. I love the workouts that straight up kick my ass then let me go home. The long EMOMs like that. I dig them!

  4. Just bought your 1st book at Crossfit Sanitas in Boulder. I’m loving it! I bought it and a pair of sexy yoga pants from Prana to reward myself for sticking with Crossfit & Paleo for 2 months! Yay!

    I’ve made MANY of your dessert recipes, and they get rave reviews from my friends! Thank you!

  5. I still need to check out your first book! Hopefully before your second one comes out, ha.

    Also, I would watch your reality show just to see someone do that WOD without collapsing. I feel great about myself when I do 10 40-lb shoulder presses. I think I would die.

  6. Almond butter is so blah! tastes like cardboard…strangley i’ve gotten use to it. But I am totally making a jar of this in 3 weeks after my little 21day superhero challenge! yumm

  7. I am stealing your idea and making that grilled cheese. mwahahaha. Next weekend, it’s happening. That is just insane and delicious and I can’t wait. You are a genius, JB.

  8. Has anybody tried this with cocoa powder (and maybe more coconut oil to add more liquid, to make up for the lack of melted chocolate)? On day 12 of the 21dsd, so while I know it wouldn’t be sweet without the chocolate chips, I think I may give it a try..

      1. For anyone who might be wondering– ended up using a LITTLE bit of honey (1 tsp?) just to take a little bitterness off. Also, used a blend of normal cocoa powder and “black onyx” cocoa powder from savory spice shop in boulder (this place is amazing) and I think that reduced the bitterness some…

  9. Juli,
    I love your blog and would love more updates on your WODs…my husband and I just started Crossfit and Paleo in January…don’t be ashamed of blogging your awesome WOD accomplishments! This recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to purchase your 2nd cookbook!! I promote your blog to all oft friends!! Thank you for all the inspiration!

  10. OMG I WOULD TOTALLY watch you on a reality show. In my head you are really entertaining. And a better subject than most reality stars, let’s be real. I am so excited for Jessica’s cookbook too!!!!!!! And yours, of course 😉

  11. I love that you are obsessed with How Sweet it is! I love her blog! You are totally the Howsweeteats of the paleo world. 🙂

    And that WOD looks absolutely brutal. Nothankyou! (okay, maybe)

  12. You need to be on a reality show.
    1) More exposure (for your cookbooks/career)
    2) You have a very funny personality
    3) Showing more people that you can eat really amazing food that is Paleo (some guy I work with said, do you just eat sweet potatoes… i was like noooooo)

    I would totally watch you if I had cable!!!
