Got a sweet tooth but watching your sugars? Try making these easy, delicious nut butter cups. I've always seen recipes like this but was a little afraid of making them for some reason. However, being low-no sugar for almost a month now, had me craving something fierce.
Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups
adapted from Fast Paleo, makes 8-9
1 1/3 C. dark chocolate (70% or higher) (I used 2 Chocolove Strong Dark Chocolate Bar 3.2 oz.)
2 Tbl expeller pressed coconut oil, divided
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 C. almond butter
Pinch of sea salt
Silicone cupcake liners (like these, affiliate link)
Melt 1 1/3 C. dark chocolate and 1 Tbl coconut oil together. Pour 1 Tbl rounds into silicone cupcake liners and freeze until they harden (about 15 minutes). Mix together 1/3 C. almond butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 Tbl coconut oil and a pinch of salt. Place about a 1/2 tablespoon of mixture into each cup and freeze until hardened (about 15 minutes). For the last layer pour enough chocolate to cover the almond butter and freeze 5-10 more mins, store in fridge or freezer.
