Treat Week – Almond Butter Cups

Now, I promise I’m not eating these, since I’m back on full carnivore for at least another week. This is a once a year birthday treat, since I can no longer eat cake. What are these exactly? This is something my better half came up with through trial and error. I think Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups inspired her.

Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups Recipe + I was published ...

These are definitely paleo, maybe even semi-keto depending on what kind of chocolate you use. I’ve never had these with anything less than 90% cacao. On my recent B-Day it was 95%.

These are far better than any candy bars masquerading as “keto health” bars in my opinion.

There are two styles that my wife makes. I love both of them. I don’t think I really have a preference here. They’re both wonderful.

The below amounts will make six cups. My missus used to make more, but I’d scarf them down too fast and have a sugar spike.

Ingredients – Reece’s Peanut Butter Style

  • Smooth almond nut butter – 200g
  • Coconut oil – 3 tbs
  • 95% cacao chocolate -100g
  • Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
  • Cinnamon powder – 1 tsp
  • Butter – 2 tbs
  • Pinch of sea salt

Ingredients – Super Cacao Style

  • Smooth almond nut butter – 200g
  • Coconut oil – 3 tbs
  • Cinnamon – 1 tsp
  • Cacao Nibs – 1 tbs
  • Cacao Powder – 2 tbs
  • Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
  • Pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  • Drain the oil from the almond butter (the oil separates and forms at the top of store bought almond butter)
  • Melt the butter and coconut oil
  • Put everything into a mixing bowl except for the chocolate
  • Stir well – this is hard work
  • Melt the chocolate
  • Put cupcake cases in the muffin tin – two cases per hole
  • Put an even amount of the mixture into the cupcake cases
  • Pour some chocolate on top of each cup to form a thin layer (or a thick layer if you want!)
  • Put the tin in the fridge for two hours to set the cups
