Keto Chocolate PB Coconut Crunch Cups

KETO / GF / DF / V

Peanut Butter and Almond Butter options

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips or equivalent of dark choc squares. (I either use Enjoy Life dark morsels, >80% dark chocolate bar squares or Lily’s Dark Choc Chips)
  • 1/2 cup natural PB or Almond butter or mix of both (NOTE: You can use crunchy or smooth nut butter. Whatever your preference, it will still setup the same.)
  • 2 or 3 Tbsp coconut oil (I vary this amount based on how oily the natural nut butter is)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup toasted unsweetened coconut flakes (I toast it myself.)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla (optional)

Directions:

  1. Slowly melt chocoloate (Since I don’t have a double boiler, I use a metal or glass bowl I set over a pan that has some water in it and heat the stove to medium heat so it slowly melts the chocolate without burning it)
  2. Add nut butter, coconut oil, coconut flakes and vanilla to melted chocolate and stir until completely incorporated.
  3. Scoop tablespoon amount into miniature muffin cups and place in the freezer for fast setup.
  4. Store in the fridge for fudge consistency. Enjoy.
  5. Tip: With coconut oil in the mixture it is best to keep the cups stored in either the fridge or freezer and eat quickily once removed.

Nutrition:Makes about 18 cups with 1.2g to 1.5g net carbs in each cup and about 90 calories per cup.
