Most people think the best way to deal with a chocolate craving is to ignore it. We say, take that chocolate you're craving, and make it healthy! These almond butter cups are far from your typical chocolate treat. They contain all sorts of nutritious foodstuffs, including, cacao powder, maca powder, and coconut oil. And of course – they're delicious. Keep these around for when that chocolate craving kicks in, we think you'll feel way more energized eating these than a regular chocolate bar.

Superfood Almond Butter Cups [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Ingredients

For the Cups:

  • 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup of cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Cacao nibs, freeze-dried raspberries, to garnish (optional)

For the Nut Butter:

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • A pinch of sea salt

Preparation

To Make the Cups:

  1. Heat the coconut oil and maple syrup over a double broiler and whisk to combine. Remove from the heat and sift the cacao powder into the mixture. Add a pinch of salt and then taste and adjust accordingly.
  2. Line a muffin tin with paper cups and spoon 1 teaspoon of chocolate mixture into each tin so that the bottom is covered. Place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, or until cold and solid.

To Make the Nut Butter:

  1. While the chocolate freezes, make the nut butter filling by combining the almond butter, maca powder, maple syrup, and salt in a bowl and stir to combine. Taste the nut butter and add extra salt or sweetener if needed.

To Assemble:

  1. Scoop out a 1/2 teaspoon of nut butter into your hand and roll into a ball. Lightly flatten and place into the chocolate cups.
  2. Drizzle the remaining chocolate on top of the nut butter, making sure to completely cover the filling. Sprinkle with extra salt, cacao nibs, or freeze dried raspberries and place in the fridge for 1 hour to set.
