Nutty Keto Dessert Cups

These are decadent, melt-in-your mouth, nutrition-rich bites!   There are no sugars and only limited carbohydrates, so they are absolutely guilt-free!  They will take you only minutes to make, but  you can keep these in the freezer for future treats.  They are the perfect snack to supplement your daily healthy fats intake. It is well-documented that our bodies require healthy fats to function optimally.  Here is a tasty and perfect way to boost your system.

I will share two of my favorite created recipes here. One version is a perfect combination of cinnamon, almond, and vanilla. The other is a fan favorite, coconut, peanut butter, and chocolate!  It is a toss up between our preferred version, so I recommend you try them both and decide for yourself!  Each recipe makes about 5 cups/servings.

Cinnamon, Almond, & Vanilla Cups

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon bourbon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2-3 packets of stevia, depending on your preferred level of sweetness
  • optional topping: hemp seeds

Coconut, Peanut Butter, & Chocolate Cups

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut, optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2-3 packets stevia, depending on your preferred level of sweetness
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • optional topping: raw cacao nibs

Directions

  1. In a small microwave safe dish, melt your coconut oil and butter together.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix your melted oil with nut butter and all other ingredients.  Stir until well-combined and smooth.
  3. Next, use either a muffin pan, ice cube tray, or silicone molds to distribute your mixture evenly. I use a silicone baby food mold and put 2 tablespoons of the mixture in each cup. Then, garnish with suggested toppings.
  4. Place n the freezer until mixture is solid, which is at least an hour. I prefer to keep these snacks in the freezer until ready to eat.
