Almond Butter Cups

Here’s the truth, I am probably the biggest chocolate lover on the planet. And these chocolatey Almond Butter Cups get my approval.

Seriously, I am not kidding about my chocolate obsession. I even have a massive collection of craft chocolate packaging from ones I’ve eaten to remind myself of all the goods. Once I started my own chocolate business due to my obsession – yep, the chocolate love is real friends! So when I was brainstorming for sugar free recipes for the keto series, I knew I had to include some amazing chocolatey treats – like these Almond Butter Cups! They are to die for!

These Almond Butter Cups tick all the boxes, containing only good-for-you ingredients and zero sugar! They are packed with anti-oxidants, iron, magnesium, calcium and fiber, and are a source of both serotonin and tryptophan, two of the key ‘good mood’ chemicals.

These Almond Butter Cups are perfect to make for a busy week ahead, and are an excellent alternative to store bough chocolates and sweet treats. They are also incredibly rich and filling, so you wont be tempted to eat them all at once!

Ingredients you will need:

  • Sea salt

Enjoy your dark, chocolaty treat, you wont regret it!
