Easy Paleo Peppermint Almond Butter Cups

Who loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups?  Most of us, right?

Can’t remember the last time I had one but I know that I have been avoiding due to the ingredients.  The recipe below is a better option and still the same great rich chocolate with a rich almond butter.

With this recipe you can avoid “Produced from Genetically Modified Sugar Beet, Corn and Soya”  and other ingredients you may not want to consume.

Just a one or two of these almond butter cups and you will feel satisfied and stay on track with Paleo.



Easy Peppermint Almond Butter Cups

1 cup 72% cacao chips (or make your own chocolate using cacao powder and sweetener of choice adding double the coconut oil)

4 tblsp coconut oil

Almond  Butter (I used Barney Butter here but you can make your own with fresh almonds in your vitamix)

5 – 10 drops of Young Living Peppermint Oil (This is the brand I am comfortable to recommend)


Slightly warm the cacao  chips and coconut oil  just enough to liquefy and add your choice of drops of peppermint oil.

Young Living Peppermint Oil
