  • Muffin tin

  • Cupcake liners

  • Mixing bowl

  • Spoon

  • Microwave or double boiler


  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 6 oz dark chocolate chips


Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Mix until smooth.
Spoon the almond butter mixture evenly into each cupcake liner, filling each about 2/3 of the way full.
Melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave or using a double boiler.
Spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the almond butter mixture, covering it completely.
Sprinkle a little sea salt on top of each cup.
Place the muffin tin in the fridge for at least 10 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened.
Once the chocolate has hardened, remove the cups from the muffin tin and store in an airtight container in the fridge.


Make sure to use creamy almond butter and not crunchy, as it will not mix as well. You can use either a microwave or a double boiler to melt the chocolate. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
