Paleo Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter Cups

Here’s a perfect guilt-free treat to make for Halloween. If you think these Peanut Butter Cups are good, then try these Paleo Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter Cups. They are to DIE FOR (Mwah-ha-ha-ha)! This recipe (which I found on simplylivinghealthy.org) uses coconut butter or manna which is yet another amazing ingredient that is now a “must-have” in my kitchen cupboard. These sweet, nutty treats are low in carbs, gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free.

RECIPE

  • 24 whole raw macadamia nuts
  • 6 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • 6 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 6 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 6 oz coconut butter or manna, softened
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp liquid stevia (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp almond butter or any nut butter you’d like.
  • 24 mini cupcake liners
  1. Line a mini muffin pan with the 24 cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium bowl combine coconut, coconut oil, cacao powder, coconut butter, salt, vanilla and stevia.
  3. Stir ingredients until thoroughly combined.  Spoon the mixture into the paper liners evenly.
  4. Using a small spoon place a 1/4 tsp dollop of almond butter on top of each candy, place the macadamia nut on top of the almond butter and press the nut lightly down into the cup.
  5. Put the muffin pan into the refrigerator to chill the candies, about 30 minutes.
  6. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container until ready to serve.
