Healthy Almond Joy Cups

Okay, I cannot wait any longer to share this recipe with you guys!!! It is honestly one of the best… okay if not THE best healthy treats I have ever ever made and HAD before.

Originally, I thought it was going to taste like a peanut butter cup but with almond butter.  It ended up tasting identical to an almond joy except better.  I love almond joys, but I hate how there is one big almond in the middle.  This recipe solves that dilemma 🙂

I got this recipe from Oh She Glows.  I plan on trying a variation to make it like a peanut butter cup once these are done… which will be soon.

You are going to need

1. 3/4 cup raw almonds, ground into a meal

2. 1/4 cup rolled oats, ground into a flour

3. 2 tablespoons raw almond butter (or nut butter of choice)

4. 1.5 tablespoons coconut oil, warmed if necessary

5. 1.5 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or agave nectar)

6. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

7. 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

8. pinch of fine grain sea salt, to taste

(for the chocolate)
9. 3 tablespoons coconut oil

10. 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or 2 tbsp agave nectar)

11. 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

12. pinch of fine grain sea salt, to taste

Freeze, and enjoy!

Seriously, if you love almond joys or mounds bars, try these.  They’re so much better for you and taste better too.

Reeses recipe coming soon 🙂
