Almond cups

Preparation: 20 minutes

Makes 12 cups

 

Ingredients:

 

¾ cup raw almonds (or you can use almond meal)

¼ cup old fashioned organic oats

2 tablespoons almond butter

1 ½ tablespoons organic coconut oil

1 ½ tablespoons organic maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon sea salt

 

Topping:

3 tablespoons organic coconut oil

3 tablespoons organic maple syrup

2 tablespoons organic raw cacao powder

 

Method:

 

  • Put the almonds and oats into a food processor and pulse until fine. Dip into a large bowl.

  • Add the almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and sea salt and stir until well combined.

  • Divide the mixture into a mini muffin form and press down firmly. Don’t fill it all the way to the top - leave a little bit of space for the topping. A silicon muffin form works perfectly.

  • In a small bowl mix the 3 ingredients for the topping together and pour over the top of the cups.

  • Put in the freezer for about an hour or until firm. You can keep them in the freezer for a couple of months.
