Chocolates on Valentines day!!

I recently came across this recipe and decided to give it a whirl. it has some of the same ingredients as my oh-so-favorite homemade granola bars, which of course have rolled oats... not so Keto friendly. However, this recipe it does have honey in it, but if you are really looking for a sweet treat, it's better to grab one of these than a slice of cake...

Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

1/2 c. coconut oil
1/2 c. almond/peanut butter (i use peanut butter)
1/4 c. honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 c. cocoa powder

In a small sauce pan on medium heat, melt coconut oil, nut butter, and honey. Stir so it does not burn. when melted, add vanilla, stir. and pour into a blender. add 1/2 c. cocoa and mix well in blender.

Line mini muffin tins with papers and pour mixture into the cups.

chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
or freeze for 40 minutes.

keep in refrigerator in a sealed container or Ziploc.

makes 24, mini cups
1 mini cup= 3 Net Carbs!

This is the Cocoa I found on Amazon, that only has 1 net carbs per serving.
Happy Valentines Day!!!
