Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond butter or peanut/seed butter
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered Lakanto (or your preferred sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt (optional)
  • 8 oz dark/milk chocolate
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil or grass-fed butter
  • 1 scoop Organixx Chocolate Bone Broth Protein powder (optional)
    Optional add-ins:

  • ¼ cup cacao nibs
  • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Instructions

  1. In either a bowl or food processor, mix together the almond butter, Lakanto, vanilla extract, and salt. Fold in cacao nibs and/or coconut (if using) and set aside.
  2. In a double-boiler, melt together your chocolate bar, oil, and bone broth powder. Stir until smooth.
  3. Using either a paper-lined muffin tin or silicone muffin mold, add about 1 teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each cup. Swirl around to coat edges using your finger or a knife. Place chocolate into the refrigerator to set for 10 minutes. Scoop out a little less than 1 tablespoon of almond butter mixture into each cup and flatten out. Top each with about 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate.
  4. Place pan back in the fridge for 1-2 hours until cups harden completely. Remove and enjoy! Store any leftovers in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.

Ingredient Highlights

Don’t have almond butter on hand but have almonds? Make your own almond butter in a food processor or high-speed blender. You need around 2 cups + 2 TBSP of almonds to make 1 cup of almond butter. 

Cacao nibs are small crunchy bits of crushed cacao beans that have a bitter, nutty, chocolatey flavor. Look for unroasted (raw) nibs which are packed with nutrients and antioxidants.

Coconut oil provides a boost of healthy fat that can energize and satiate. It is a strong antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial food. 

Good quality dark chocolate is high in antioxidants, rich in fiber, and contains minerals such as iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese.

Lakanto is a zero-glycemic, zero-calorie blend of monk fruit and erythritol that makes an excellent sugar substitute for low-carb recipes.

Each scoop of Organixx Organic Bone Broth Protein powder contains 20g of gut-friendly protein and is loaded with collagen powder, glucosamine, and chondroitin to help increase joint mobility.

Unsweetened shredded coconut is a healthier choice than sweetened. It often contains fewer preservatives and usually isn’t treated with sulfites to keep it white. 


Organixx Organic Bone Broth Protein powder comes in 3 flavors and provides you with an incredibly concentrated source of the vitamins, minerals, 19 amino acids, and vital proteins your body needs to thrive… without the hassle of making bone broth yourself.
