VEGAN ALMOND BUTTER CUPS -- only 6 ingredients, easy to make and super healthy!

Vegan Almond Butter Cups with Crispy Quinoa

The center is light and fluffy but then there is a little crunch. Kind of like if a chocolate crunch bar and a peanut butter cup hooked up. Their two worlds would collide and create these amazing treats.

  • In a heat proof bowl melt the chocolate over a double boiler (or in the microwave). Once melted, using a silicone candy mold (in whatever shape you want!) or mini muffin tin lined with small paper liners, fill each cup with about 1/2 teaspoon of the melted chocolate. Pop the mold into the freezer for 30 minutes to set.
  • Once the chocolate has set, mix together the almond butter, maple syrup, coconut flour and salt until it comes together to form a thick paste. Fold in the quinoa crispies.
  • Take 1/4 teaspoon of this mixture between your fingers and roll it into a little ball. Place the ball in the center of the chocolate, then press it down slightly with your finger. Repeat with the rest of the batch.
  • Cover the almond butter mixture with 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon of melted chocolate and repeat until all the candies are covered. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired and place the molds back into the freezer for another 30 minutes.
  • Remove and pop the candies out the molds and enjoy!
  • These are best stored in the fridge or freezer and last for up to 1 week in the fridge and 1 - 2 months in the freezer.



The amount of coconut flour you need will depend on how creamy your almond butter is. Start with 1 teaspoon and then add more if necessary.
