Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

Print

Today I’m sharing these scrumptious chocolate almond butter cups that will give the commercial brands a run for their money. (Reese’s peanut butter cups, I’m talking to you!)

Not only are these a chocolate-lovers delight, they are made with simple, all natural ingredients. There’s no need to calculate how many hours you’re going to have to spend on the stair master after eating one. Packed with healthy fats that our bodies love and infused with collagen for even more wonderful health benefits! Kick back, relax, and indulge in the chocolatey goodness.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This recipe uses simple, natural ingredients to make a delicious treat! Almond butter is a great alternate to peanut butter, especially when you compare it to the often sugar-laden peanut butter brands on the market. Both nut butters contain high amounts of monounsaturated fat, which is linked in reducing the risk of heart disease and helps control blood sugar levels. However, almond butter contains about 25% more monounsaturated fat than peanut butter, while peanut butter contains more saturated fat, which could raise cholesterol. Almond butter also contains twice as much vitamin E and iron, and seven times as much calcium than its popular peanut companion.
