Need a post meal treat to end the day? these rich low carb chocolate almond butter cups are a perfect post meal treat to keep you satisfied for hours and hours between meals.

Chocolate almond butter cups

I’m not someone who craves sweets but I have grown to enjoy some dark chocolate from time to time. I normally buy the 85% dark chocolate and say I’m only going to have a ⅓ of the bar. More often than not that plan fails and within a few minutes the whole chocolate bar has gone missing. All of the careful tracking of calories and macros has been through aside for a few moments of indulgence. To counteract this I like making these chocolate almond butter cups. They are not overly sweet and have a higher fat to carb ratio than your standard chocolate bar so it is a good way to finish a meal and keep me full for the rest of the evening.

You can portion these cups however you like, I used a silicone muffin pan but any candy mold would work great and honestly you could easily make 24 of these cups instead of 12 as this recipe calls for. Just pour half portions into the molds to stretch out the number of serving.

  1. Hi-if I don’t have peanut butter powder can I substitute with actual peanut butter, or just use all almond butter?
