Almond Butter Cups

I am addicted to almond butter. It seems that most of my new recipes have almond butter and now I thought chocolate and almond butter! How about Almond Butter Cups and it’s a Paleo Recipe.. Sounds good to me…

I made them in a mini-cupcake tin so they were the perfect bite size treat. I sprinkled some organic unsweetened coconut on some of the before the chocolate hardened!

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, divided, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup all natural chocolate, chips or chunks

Directions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine almond butter, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, vanilla and cinnamon together.

  2. Using a double boiler melt chocolate and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil over a low heat.

  3. Melt chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil over low heat in a double boiler until melted and smooth.

  4. Line your cupcake tins then pour a teaspoon of chocolate in the bottom of each liner. Swirl the cupcake pan around and let the chocolate move up to the sides of the cup. Freeze for 5 minutes until chocolate has hardened.

  5. Remove from freezer and put about 1 teaspoon of almond butter mixture on top of the hardened chocolate. Put back in freezer for about 5 minutes. Take out of freezer and cover the almond butter mixture with enough chocolate to cover the almond butter mixture. Refrigerate or freeze until chocolate is hardened.

  6. Keep in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!
