Almond Butter Cups | Raw


It seams I crave sweet treats so much more often during fall and winter. Ugh, right?! As if all the extra fattening holiday food isn't enough =]. SO I decided to make a healthier version of my favorite treat, the peanut butter cup! These raw almond butter and chocolate cups are better tasting and so so so much better for you, plus you know everything that's in them.

Raw Almond Butter Cups
adapted from Oh She Glows
makes about 8 regular cupcake size cups
@ 194cals each

for the base:
3/4 cups raw almonds
1/4 cup rolled oats
2 TBSP nut butter of choice [I used PB]
1.5 TBSP coconut oil
1 TBSP honey
1/4 TSP cinnamon
1/4 TSP pure vanilla extract
a pinch of salt

for the topping:2 TBSP cocoa powder
3 TBSP coconut oil
1 TBSP honey
a pinch of salt

  • Add almonds and oats to a food processor and blend until a fine flour forms. Transfer to a big bowl.
  • Add nut butter, coconut oil, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Stir until well combined and dough forms.
  • Line muffin tins with paper liners, or use silicone pans. Divide the mixture evenly between the 8 cups and smooth out the tops.
  • To make the chocolate topping: in a small pot over low heat combine cocoa powder, coconut oil, honey, and salt. Mix until liquid. Do not let it boil. Distribute evenly over cups.
  • Place cups in freezer for about 40 minutes until firm. Pop out of the liner or cups and eat up! These are best right out of the freezer.

Happy Tasty Thursday Everyone!
