Paleo Almond Butter Cups


I pinned this recipe a few days ago and my husband peeked over my shoulder at my pins exclaimed “please make this!!!!”  He’s a huge Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup fan and the thought of a Paleo version of them was definitely worth exclaiming.  So on our date night last weekend before we popped in a James Bond movie I looked at this recipe to see how much time it would take.  15 minutes!!  5 to make, 10 to freeze.  I was sold.  This recipe is SUPER easy.  However, there is a warning…. They are SUPER good and easy to devour quickly.  🙂


1/2 C Coconut Oil
1/2 C High Quality Cocoa Powder
1/2 C Smooth Almond Butter
1/2 C Raw Honey or Maple Syrup
1/2 t Vanilla


1.  Melt coconut oil–it takes no time in the microwave.
2.  Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender.  Or, if you are lazy like me and don’t like washing dishes, mix it together with a spoon.
3.  Pour into 10 paper lined muffin tin cups or silicon muffin cups and fill 1/2 inch full.
4.  Chill for 30 minutes in fridge or freeze for 10 minutes.  When firm, remove.
5.  Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.  They will start to melt if left out of the fridge too long.
