Three chocolate cups stacked with the top one showing what's inside the chocolate.

It’s not everyday that I eat chocolate but when I do I make sure it is delicious and made with good for me ingredients. My Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups recipe has been tested and re-tested, and it’s absolutely perfect!

Only 3-ingredients and a whole lot of flavor, these Dark Chocolate Almond Butter treats are the perfect sweet bites after a healthy meal, they will curb your sugar cravings without making you yucky.

Say hello to this Paleo deliciousness!! But if that’s not stopping you from enjoying a treat or two you will absolutely LOVE these No-Bake S’mores Bars!!

what are these ‘good for me’ ingredients in Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups?

Not all chocolates are made the same but I truly hope you already know this 🙂 This is the only chocolate I use because it’s free of soy, dairy, sulfates and it’s delicious!

As far as the almond butter, aim for one with fewer ingredients as possible. I get mine from Whole Foods from the grinder machine, but I have used other amazing brands like this Non GMO Raw Almond Butter which contain one ingredient only, organic almond butter!

Coconut oil makes the chocolate consistency super smooth and it’s an awesome source of healthy fats, so I make sure to include in just about everything!

Sea salt flakes are optional but I recommend that you add some to this recipe because it enhances the chocolate flavor.

    1. Hi Kailee, my recipe plug in currently doesn’t support nutrition facts calculation. I believe you can find a conversion site on google. Sorry about that!
