Mini Coconut Cashew Butter Cups Print 0 LikeDislike By TheHungryHappyMama I don’t know what it is about the end of the day but it’s as if my sweet tooth is set on an alarm and goes, “Oh, look at the time! It’s 9 o’clock and you know you could really use something chocolatey and delicious right about now.”. And I swear if my sweet tooth had arms it would pick me up off of the couch and throw me into the kitchen. After a pretty successful day, i.e. eating regularly, sticking to my healthy, well-rounded meals, having sensible snacks in between and fitting in some kind of workout amongst the busy day the last thing I want to do is ruin it in twenty seconds by eating something just out of pure craving.Well, I’m happy to share that you can actually have the best of both worlds with these Mini Coconut Cashew Butter Cups. Using dark chocolate in this recipe not only reduces the sugar per serving but packs a heck of a lot more antioxidants per bite. The protein in the center from the cashews and collagen not only fills you up but can even strengthen and protect muscles and bones. The coconut oil and shredded coconut can help burn fat and reduce hunger (perfect for late at night!). There’s so many amazing benefits packed into each of these chocolate cups you’re crazy not to have a stash in the freezer for whenever that sweet tooth comes banging down the door.In an easy fifteen minutes and only five basic ingredients (not including the cinnamon, vanilla and sea salt) you can be on your way to a delicious and healthy treat!
