Chocolate Nutty Cups

  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder (sweetened with stevia)
  • 1/2 cup chopped or sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup of lightly sweetened cranberries/blueberries or just plain currants
  • 1 tsp peppermint (optional)
  1. Heat a saucepan on low and add coconut oil and almond butter.  Once these have melted, add the cocoa and protein powder.
  2. Gradually add the nuts, seeds and whatever dried fruit you choose to the melted mixture.
  3. Once everything is well mixed, add to individual tiny muffin tins.
  4. Place the muffin tins in the freezer for about 1/2 hour prior to serving.  Store them in the freezer until they are ready to be eaten.  The coconut oil will make them melt within minutes once they have been at room temperature, this can get messy.
  5. Enjoy a healthy treat!

  1. They are totally decadent Cindy. I tried putting them in ice cube trays and found them to be just the right size for a bit of a treat. I also tried putting them in the plastic easter eggs but they worked less well as I used the small ones and it seemed to be too chunky. They did close up and so you had two halves when you opened them.
