No-Bake Almond Butter Cups
Prep time
Total time
This no-bake homemade Almond Butter Cups recipe is easy to make and will satisfy any craving for chocolate and peanut butter!
Dr. Monica and I have tried these with natural peanut butter and almond butter... We liked the almond butter much better (and I LOVE peanut butter!).
Serves: 24

  • ½ cup smooth almond butter
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil, divided
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 12-15 oz soy-free chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
1. Add the almond butter, 2 Tbsp coconut oil, coconut flour, honey, and vanilla extract to a food processor or mixer. Mix well, scraping the sides as needed. Set aside.

2. Melt the chocolate chips with the remaining 1 Tbsp coconut oil over a double boiler on low heat.

3. Spoon about a teaspoonful of chocolate into the bottom of 12 paper-lined muffin cups or 24 mini muffin cups. Drop a tablespoon of the almond butter mixture in next. Cover evenly with the remaining melted chocolate.

4.  Chill, until firm about 1-2 hours.

5.  Store in a covered, cool dry place.
