My aunt shared this recipe with us and yummy!!! She used almond butter, but we tried peanut butter – both are delicious!! The almond butter makes it taste similar to an almond joy and using peanut butter makes it taste like a reece’s peanut butter cup.
There is no refined sugar in these and really good fat. I have a sweet tooth and break down ever so often and get a dark chocolate coconut bar at the health food store, but I don’t think I have to do that anymore. These are so easy to make, so good and not bad for you – what more could you ask for?!
Ingredients (can be easily doubled)
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted or not)
1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1/8 cup cocoa
1/8 cup cacoa (or you can do 1/4 cup cocoa)
1/4 cup raw honey
1/2 tsp sea salt
1. Melt the coconut oil.
2. In a food processor or blender, combine all the ingredients.
3. Pour or spoon the “batter” into small muffin papers.
4. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour to harden or the freezer for 30 minutes.
5. Store in a closed container in the refrigerator – but these will go fast!
As part of Stella’s birthday celebration – she requested my apple squares, but I also made these and they were a definite hit with both kids and adults!
