Cocoa Keto Cups

So much more satisfying than a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, these treats are blood sugar balancing, full of healthy fats,antioxidants, minerals, protein and fiber. And yes, they’re super tasty and satisfying.

Better yet, the recipe is a cinch and you just need a few ingredients for this delicious treat. 
 
Ingredients: 
  • 8 ounces of extra dark or for the more experienced chocolate eater, unsweetened chocolate
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon powder
  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ⅛ tsp finely ground pink salt
  • A handful or two of lightly roasted nuts (walnuts, almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts), or if you prefer to go nut-free use some seeds (like pumpkin, sunflower, or hemp etc) and some dried berries (blueberry, goji raisins,  etc).
Optional: For extra sweetness and an energy boost, you can also add 3 tbs of D-Ribose which is a supplement you can find in most health food stores. It looks and tastes like white sugar but it doesn't spike your blood sugar. It is actually a factor in energy metabolism and production. 

Directions: 
  1. Compile everything in a bowl (except the nuts/seeds) and melt over low heat in a double boiler, stirring occasionally.  
  2. When melted, transfer to a blender and pulse until extra smooth.
  3. Pour into mini muffin cups and decorate with nuts, seed and/or dried berries.
  4. Let cool in the fridge. Transfer to a covered container. 
  5. Makes about 24 pieces.
Enjoy anytime you need a guilt-free lift (even with your coffee at breakfast ;)
