Healthy Almond Butter Cups

Posted by Amina AlTai on

When i'm not working from my home office, I can often be found at the local healthy coffee shop, typing away, and occasionally indulging in any vegan treats they might have that day,  

Cleverly, the checkout counter is also full of other craving-inducing goodies such as lollipops, rice krispy treats and chocolate peanut butter cups.  But it's the peanut butter cups that seem to taunt me the most.  Having both a chocolate and peanut allergy, I haven't tasted the perfect balance of sweet and salty like that in years.  Well this week, I decided I was going to be taunted for the last time and figure out a way to make tasty and healthy replacement.  Enter: Healthy Almond Butter Cups with Strawberry "Jam" Filling.  

Ingredients:

5 ounces of almond butter

3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

A dash of salt

Filling:

1/2 a cup of mashed strawberries, simmered in 1/4 cup of water

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

1 sliced strawberry

Instructions:

Melt the coconut oil on the stovetop and whisk in the almond butter.  Once you've achieved a well-mixed consistency, whisk in the protein powder.  When it's all melted together nicely, separate the concoction into two, then spoon one tablespoon into silicone molds and pop in the freezer for about 20 minutes.  Set the remaining half aside.

For the "jam" filling, add the mashed strawberries to the water and simmer until the strawberries breakdown.  They whisk in the protein powder to thicken up the filling and add some extra protein.  It's not a gorgeous color, but it tastes great!  

Remove the frozen base from the freezer and spoon on the jam.  You want a small amount, about the size of your fingertip, then top with a fresh slice of strawberry.  Then cover with another tablespoon of the almond butter mixture and pop back in the freezer for another 20 minutes.  Remove them and eat right away.  I dare you to try and stop at just one!  : )
