Recipe of the Day:
Healthier Nut Butter Cups
Submitted by: FoFa
"For a healthier version of Resee's cups, you can try this version homemade at home. Softer than regular peanut butter cups. Not as sweet."
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 to 4 tablespoons tahini
3 to 4 tablespoons peanut butter
3 to 4 tablespoons almond butter
Line 20 mini muffin cups with paper liners. Alternately, line 10 regular muffin cups with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, maple syrup, cocoa and vanilla until smooth. Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes and then evenly brush the bottom and sides of the muffin cup liners with the chocolate mixture. Transfer to the refrigerator and let sit for 30 minutes, or until set.
Fill each of the muffin cups nearly to the top with about 1 teaspoon of one of the nut butters. Spoon the rest of the chocolate mixture over the filled cups. If the chocolate is too hard, melt it over low heat. Put the cups back in the refrigerator and chill until firm — at least a few hours and preferably overnight. These can also be frozen for firmer cups.
