Who says you can’t makeover candy to add a health boost? Almonds are full of omega-3′s, so pass these out at your next party and give healthy hearts to those you love. This recipe comes to us from Kinzie of To Cheese or Not to Cheese?
- 1 12oz bag dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast*
- 3 tablespoons golden flax seeds, whole
- 3 tablespoons hemp seeds*
*optional. Nutritional yeast and hemp seeds can be found in the health food section of most grocery stores.
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips.
While chocolate is melting, mix the almond butter and nutritional yeast (if using) in a small bowl.
Once the chocolate is melted, spoon about 2 teaspoons on the bottom of a muffin cup and spread around the bottom so the chocolate forms a solid layer.
Add 2 heaping teaspoons almond butter to the center of the muffin cup. Top off with 2 more teaspoons melted chocolate and tilt the muffin cup back and forth to allow the chocolate to melt down each side, covering the almond butter completely. Top with a sprinkle of flax seeds and hemp seeds (if using) on the top.
Place almond butter cups in the freezer for 15 minutes to allow them to harden.
