Happy Friday AGAIN!!
I got so excited about my dessert tonight I had to do another post today. THESE ARE AMAZING and 21 day sugar detox diet approved! You can imagine that I’ve got some extra time on the 21 day sugar detox with all this no partying and all . So tonight I played around with a new dessert dish.
If you look at the ratio of sweet stuff on Simply Paleo you’ll see that this section is pretty weak. I just don’t have a sweet tooth! But now that we’re doing the detox, Jer asked me to make him something for dessert. I also made a really good shrimp stir fry tonight but let’s stay focused!
This is inspired by a recipe in the 21 day sugar detox plan, of which, I botched TWICE (Yes there are 2 chunky ass nasty batches of brown junk in my trash, I don’t know what I kept doing wrong!!). So I decided to go back to my roots, my mother is a MASTER baker. I grew up in the bakery my parents owned and I MUST have channeled her tonight!
Triple Layer Almond Butter Cups
For the bottom layer:
3 tbsp butter
1 tsbp coconut butter
2 tbsp cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Dash cinnamon and nutmeg
Melt the butter and add the vanilla, stir in the cacao and spices. Pour into a 3×4 cupcake pan and set in the freezer until the mix looks dull.
For the nut butter layer:
4 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp almond flour
Melt all the ingredients and then add the almond flour once it’s off the heat. Spoon a small amount into each cup, making sure it doesn’t cover the full bottom layer. Make sure you have
For the Cacao nut butter layer:
Remaining nut butter filling
1 tbsp cacao
1 tbsp ghee
Sprinkle cacao nibs
Simply add the ghee and cacao to the middle layer mix and pour over the cups. Sprinkle with coconut and cacao nuts to make them pretty. Let the cups sit in the freezer for another 15 minutes before you enjoy.
This is what your kitchen would look like if you let me come cook in it. Probably not the best idea…..
This is what the results look like
