Nothing fancy today, folks – just simple deliciousness. This Raw chocolate almond butter cup recipe uses just four ingredients? Gimme! I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of these, and believe me – I would know. I’ve eaten quite a number in my life thus far. As a bonus, this is one of those recipes that every kind of person can enjoy, not just vegans or raw food lovers. If you give them to your carnivorous, junk food-worshiping brother, I guarantee he won’t even know they’re healthy. My guarantee comes from personal experience.
Raw chocolate almond butter Cups: makes about six
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup liquid coconut oil

To make the chocolate: whisk together the ingredients until smooth. Optional add-ins: salt, cinnamon, maca, berry powders, nutmeg, chili, ginger, etc. Pour about 1 teaspoon of the liquid chocolate into the bottom of 6 cupcake papers, or at least enough to cover the bottoms. Put in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened. 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.
