Almond Butter Cups (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

peanut butter cups2

I used the following ingredients for Low Carb Almond Butter (or any nut butter) Cups:
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup powdered sweetener (I used Swerve Confectioners’ Style)
1/2 cup almond butter, divided

Line a mini muffin tin with cupcake liners and poor enough chocolate into each liner to cover the bottom (1/2 – 1 tsp).  Place the muffin tin in the refrigerator until it hardens (30-40 mins).  Next add 1 tsp of almond butter into each muffin cup and smooth out the top.  Cover the almond butter with the chocolate mixture (about 1 tsp) and allow the almond butter cup to harden.

Net Carb Count*:
