Keto Almond Butter Cups

Keto Almond Butter Cups

I use peanut butter on occasion, but I really try to limit it.  I set out to make some almond butter cups! 

I normally use Lily’s chocolate which is basically dark, baker’s chocolate sweetened with stevia.  So, I just had to make my own version with the 100% baker’s chocolate I had.

My original vision was to make cute little mini almond butter cups with the almond butter mixture fully enclosed in the chocolate.  I may try that soon, but at the last minute, I decided to make bigger cups with the almond butter just in the center with an exposed top.

I wish I could package these up and keep them in my purse without melting.  They are the perfect, slightly larger than bite-size treat.

Sweeteners

I chose to use erythritol and liquid stevia together to give this just a slight sweetness.  I don’t like to overdo the sweeteners as it gives an artificially sweet flavor. 

Just a hint of both goes a long way.

The best part about using them together is that they balance each other out and get rid of any potential aftertaste.  SCORE!

 

Kitchen Essentials

Hand Beater – Simple, old school hand beater will do just fine!  No need to get fancy here!

Muffin Tins – I’ve been slowly switching over to silicone molds for things like this.  Clean up is SO much easier and they are just easier to work with.  

Whatever kind you have though, wi ll help the almond butter cups to hold their shape!  I’ve made the mistake of trying to use the muffin liners without putting them in a tin and, well, it doesn’t work!

Muffin Liners – I prefer to use the unbleached kind.  I’ve also been switching my liners and parchment paper back to unbleached.  These are the best!
