I used to LOVE peanut butter cups so much I would plough through an entire bag of them in one sitting. After the sugar high wore off I’d sit in self-hatred, guilt and shame, and get really depressed.
Not exactly a fun place to be.
The good news is that you can banish the sugar blues with natural sweeteners mixed with healthy fats. And my easy almond butter cups provide the perfect balance of both.
This way, you can be good to your body and enjoy a little yummy sweetness too.
Easy Almond Butter Cups Ingredients:
- 4 tablespoons organic coconut oil (melted)
- 2 tablespoons raw manuka honey
- 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- Almond butter (the sprouted varieties are more nutritious, but Artisana brand is good too)
- 6 cupcake papers
Easy Almond Butter Cups Instructions:
- Mix together the coconut oil, honey and cacao powder.
- Use half the cacao mixture to cover the bottoms of the cupcake papers.
- Freeze for 15 minutes.
- Put a small spoonful of almond butter in each cupcake paper and cover with the remaining cacao mixture. Top with Maldon salt.
