Almond Butter Cacao Cups Recipe
You might not be able to resist this lower sugar superfood version of the classic childhood favorite, but who says you have to? Brimming with antioxidants, polyphenols and healthy fats, this is a recipe you can keep handy for when that sweet tooth kicks in.
For the Chocolate:
1/2 cup Navitas Organics Cacao Butter
1/2 cup Navitas Organics Cacao Powder
2 Tbsp Unsweetened Nut Butter of Choice
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Sweetener of Choice
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch Fine Salt*
3 Tbsp Almond Butter (or Nut Butter of Choice)
1 Tbsp Almond Flour
Pinch Fine Salt
Sweetener, to taste
Melt the Cacao Butter over low heat until it's liquid.
Remove from heat and add in remaining chocolate ingredients, stirring until everything is creamy and well combined.
Taste and adjust by adding more sweetener/salt.
Pour a small amount of chocolate into chocolate candy mold just to cover the bottom. Place in the freezer to harden for 5 minutes.
While you wait, make the filling by mixing together almond butter, almond flour, salt, and sweetener.
Remove the chocolate mold from the freezer and drop 1/2 tsp of the filling into each mold. Pour the remaining chocolate over the filling and place back into the freezer for another 10 minutes.
Remove from the candy molds and enjoy! Store in a Tupperware container in the fridge, freezer, or countertop.
