I think I have a new obsession: ALL things coconut.  I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I haven’t had sugar in  41 days…You better believe on day 61 I will be eating one (or two) of these coconut almond butter cups!  Last year for Valentine’s Day I made my hubby these almond butter cups because he loves them and  I just needed an excuse to make some so I could eat them too.  Now that I have this new coconut obsession I wanted to try out making some coconut almond butter cups. They were super fun to make and really quite easy.  These would be the perfect treat for your special someone this year (or for yourself…wink. wink.).
Oh my goodness I've got to have these!

You know just looking at the picture makes you drool a little.  I can hardly resist the urge to go in my freezer and pull one out to eat.  If I weren’t so committed to this Whole60 that’s exactly what I’d be doing this instant.

Easy, yummy, paleo butter cups!

Now I purchased my toasted coconut flakes and some unsweetened raw coconut flakes to make my own coconut butter at the neighborhood Walmart for a great price.  I’m going to show you how easy it was to make your own coconut butter below.  I also used homemade almond butter.  Directions for homemade almond butter is here (just omit the coconut for the original flavor).This coconut butter would be great on apples for a snack. Yum!

Coconut Butter is simple. You need 2 things: a high speed blender or a food processor and unsweetened coconut flakes.  Put them in the blender and blend.  First you will get a grainy consistency but be patient and it will get silky smooth.  It took me about 3 minutes in the Vitamix but I assume it would take 15 or more in a food processor.

Now on to the coconut almond butter cups! I put mine in a non stick mini muffin pan and they popped right out once frozen.  You could always just use some mini baking cups placed on a cookie sheet if you don’t have the pan.  Here are my 3 layers:

  1. Coconut butter and crushed almonds
  2. Almond butter mixed with a little bit of honey
  3. Melted chocolate with toasted coconut flakes.Super Easy Paleo Coconut Almond Butter Cups

Put your tray or cups in the freezer between layers to harden up.  That’s it! Enjoy in moderation!  Keep your coconut almond butter cups in the fridge or freezer.

These Paleo Coconut Almond Butter Cups are to die for. The perfect treat!
