This is a variation of my Fudgy chocolate cups I posted a long time ago. Although I loved them, I didn't always like the "oily" taste that was sometimes left behind. I recently started needing more coconut oil in my life again, so I decided to tackle this again.
I started looking a the different superfoods I had in my kitchen and created something pretty amazing!
Here is the recipe:
1/4 Cup Extra Virign Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup Raw Cacao (if you want to use cocoa I'm sure it will turn out fine)
3 tbsp Raw Honey
3 tbsp Grass Fed Gelatin
1 tbsp vanilla extract (opt)
-on medium heat, melt coconut oil & honey together and whisk well.
-once they are mixed together, add the gelatin and whisk quickly.
-next add the cacao powder & vanilla keep whisking because it could get thick here.
-now pour the mixture into cups- I like to use the mini muffin tins personally.
-now you can customize these however you want, I personally like to put almond butter in the middle to make an almond butter cup. Coconut flakes, nuts, seeds, and dried fruit work too!
-next put them in the fridge and pull one out for a nice snack!
These turned more of a Fudgy consistency than the others I had before :)
