Oatmeal Almond Butter Chocolate Cups

Chocolate is one of my favorite things, that is why I always like to keep some sweet treats on hand.  One of my favorite treats to keep on hand are these Oatmeal Almond Butter Chocolate Cups.  Creamy almond butter and dark chocolate, yum!  

 

Instead of reaching for the store bought candy bars, I like to reach for treats made with clean ingredients.  These are something that you can eat everyday and still feel great about.  Those are my favorite kind of treats!

Ingredients

2 c quick cooking oats
3/4 c almond butter
2T honey
3/4 c mini dark chocolate chips
1T coconut oil

 

Tools you may need

 

A blender.  When you are making this recipe, you are going to blend up the ingredients to make them nice and smooth.  The Ninja Blender is my favorite.  I have had mine for years and LOVE it.

 

 

A cupcake pan.  You will want a nice, non stick cupcake pan for this.  If you don’t have a non stick muffin, consider using silicon cupcake liners.

 

How to make Oatmeal Almond Butter Cups

First, put your oats into the blender and pulse a few times.

Once your oats are blended a little bit, add in almond butter and honey to the blender.

Pulse until well combined, set aside.

Place your chocolate chips and coconut oil into a small microwave safe bowl.

Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.

Now you are going to assemble your cups.

I used a small ice cream scoop or melon baller to make sure I got even amounts, but you can use a spoon if you don’t have those.

Evenly distribute the almond butter oat mixture into 18 cups.

Using your fingers, press down the almond butter oat mixture into the muffin pan.

Top each cup with chocolate.

FREEZE and ENJOY!

I like mine in the freezer but you could also put them into the refrigerator.

Substitutions 

There are so many things you can do with this recipe.  You can use any nut butter you like and there are so many different flavors of those too!  You can also switch up the type of chocolate you use. 

Toppings on top of the chocolate cups would also be delicious, such as coconut or nuts.

If you want to make sure this recipe is vegan, make sure to buy vegan chocolate.

For gluten free all you need to do is make sure your oats are gluten free.

Eating clean and healthier foods doesn’t have to be bland or boring.  You can create so many different treats that you will love just as much.  I think it’s important to try to eat clean food as much as you can.  That doesn’t mean everyone can do that all the time, but if you are able to your body will thank you.  These Oatmeal Almond Butter Cups are creamy, healthy and delicious.  They are perfect for kids too!
