Soon I’ll be posting a Raw Caramel Cake recipe one of my highlights of my raw dessert career. This was the first Birthday Cake I made and it turned out just simple deliciousness. For today I’m posting a simple not a fancy recipe – Raw Almond Butter Cups. Only four ingredients? Hell yeah! This recipe will impress even the full on junk food-worshiping brother (trust me I know!). And no blender needed, hip hip hurray!
- 1/2 cup Cacao Powder
- 1/2 cup Cacao Butter or Coconut oil
- 1/6 cup preferred liquid sweetener (like date syrup, agave syrup, maple syrup, coconut nectar, etc.)
Mix together the ingredients until smooth. If you want you can add salt, cinnamon, maca, berry powders, nutmeg, chili, ginger, etc. Pour about 1 teaspoon of the liquid chocolate into the bottom of 8 cupcake papers, or at least enough to cover the bottoms. Put in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
- 10 teaspoons Almond Butter
Scoop 1 teaspoon of almond butter onto each chocolate base, then cover with the remaining liquid chocolate. Put in the fridge for 10-20 minutes or until hardened.
