Paleo "Peanut Butter Cups"


Paleo "Peanut Butter Cups"


I am a sugar addict. I cannot survive without chocolate! The hardest part of a healthy lifestyle for me is avoiding sugar. So, I have to feed myself sweet things (hello bananas!) to replace the sugar. It is so nice when I can figure out a way to eat the things that I love in a healthier way!!! I discovered Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips when I was nursing my 3rd son, who had a MSPI - I had to avoid all dairy and soy. Luckily, Enjoy life products are free of all of the top 8 allergens!! They were a lifesaver! 

Ingredients: 

1 cup Natural Almond Butter (creamy) *remember, peanuts are legumes and are not paleo friendly

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp raw honey

1 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips 



Directions:

Add almond butter, honey and coconut oil to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Melt, stirring frequently, until smooth and combined. 

In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips. (If you don't have a double boiler, add water to saucepan over medium-high heat. Place chocolate chips in a glass bowl and set on top of the saucepan. Stir constantly until melted.)

Using a muffin or mini muffin tin, pour almond butter mixture evenly into cups. (6 for normal muffin tin, or 12 for mini muffin tin.) Then pour melted chocolate evenly over almond butter mixture. Spread if necessary. 

Freeze for 2 hours and enjoy!!
