Almond Butter Cups
Try this as a healthier, real food alternative to a Reeses peanut butter cup.
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ½ cup virgin coconut oil
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • almond butter
  1. In a sauce pan heat coconut oil over medium heat. Once melted, remove from heat. Stir in maple syrup and cacao powder until you have a smooth chocolate sauce.
  2. Line 12 mini muffin cups with paper liners. Drizzle chocolate sauce in the bottom of the cups just enough to coat the base. Place in freezer about 10 minutes to set. Spoon a small amount - about ½ tsp size - almond butter into each cup. Cover with the rest of the chocolate sauce filling cups to the top. Return tin to freezer and allow to set at least another hour or two. Store in freezer or fridge.
