Delicious Easy-To-Make PALEO Almond Butter Cups
These are so good! And if you’re anything like me, you like your sweets! However, as delicious (and Paleo) as these are, don’t over-indulge. Measure it out and monitor how much you have (:
· 1 1/3 C dark chocolate (70% or higher)
· 1 T coconut oil
· 1 t vanilla extract or 1/2 t vanilla bean powder
· 1/3 C almond butter
· Pinch of sea salt
STEP 1 Melt 1 1/3 C dark chocolate (70% or higher) & 1 T coconut oil together. Pour 1 tablespoon rounds in cupcake liners & freeze till they harden.
STEP 2 Mix together 1/3 C almond butter, 1 t vanilla extract or 1/2 t vanilla bean powder, 1 T coconut oil & a pinch of salt. Place about a 1/2 tablespoon of mixture into each cup & freeze till hardened.
STEP 3 For the last layer pour enough chocolate to cover the almond butter & freeze 5-10 more mins, store in fridge or freezer.
*If you would like to, omit step 1 and start with step 2. This will eliminate the amount of chocolate used…and it still tastes great!
