Nut Butter Cups

Chocolate Layer:

1/2 cup coconut oil

½ cup cacao powder

4 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup

½ teaspoon vanilla essence

Nut Butter Layer:

1 cup nut butter

1/4 cup coconut oil


1) Melt the coconut oil for the chocolate layer and place in a large mixing bowl.

2) Add cacao powder, honey or maple syrup and vanilla essence and mix well.

3) Place 8 cake liners in a baking pan (preferably one with build in wells so the cups keep their shape).

4) Put roughly 2 tablespoons of chocolate mixture in the bottom of each case.

5) Freeze until hard (around 15-20 minutes)

6) Meanwhile, melt almond butter and coconut oil together until smooth and liquid.

6) Retrieve the hardened cups and add 2 heaped tablespoons on top of the hardened chocolate bottom layer.

7) Freeze again for 15-20 minutes.

7) Using the remaining chocolate mixture, fill up the cake case-covering the nut butter completely.

8) Place back in the freezer until hard (approximately 30 minutes).

9) Peel off the cake cases and enjoy!

PS … Store your chocolate treats in the fridge to keep them hard and delicious.
