14 Oct SunButter Chocolate Cups
Omg you all! Me and my good friend and author Liana Werner-Gray just made the BEST Nut-Free Dairy free “non” peanut butter chocolate cups! I am OBSESSED with these! This is so amazing too because my daughter is allergic to all nuts. She has never had a “peanut butter cup…” What a GREAT alternative!The secret was using sunbutter! Which is made from Sunflower seeds. It is so good!
Here is how to make these non peanut butter chocolate cups. AND they are dairy free, grain free and nut free!
Melt dark chocolate on stove top. We used the “hukitchen” brand because it is so delicious and melts really easily on the stove top. It is also DAIRY FREE. You can use whatever chocolate you would like for this recipe! Another way to do this is to melt raw caco with coconut oil and add a touch of honey or agave nectar to sweeten.
Pour a spoon full of the melted chocolate into bottom of paper cup. You can pick any size paper cup you want! We used the JUMBO (what can I say we were hungry)
Add a spoon full of the special secret ingredient that makes these out of this world yummy. Sunflower seed sunbutter.
Add more of your ooey gooey melted chocolate on top! You can also get creative here and top with whole or crushed sunflower seeds, shredded coconut or cacao nibs.
Freeze for just 10-15 minutes and they are ready to eat! You all these are SOOOOO good! And SO simple to make!
Watch the LIVE we just did where we made these live!
You are welcome!
More reasons to use sunbutter?
The top 8 food allergies in the US and Canada include peanuts, tree nuts, soy, milk, eggs, wheat, fish and shell fish. Sunbutter has NONE of these.
SunButter has the GOOD kind of fat! AND I am a “fat fan!” Healthy fat curbs cravings and hunger and reduces bad cholesterol! No bad or trans fat here!
It is Vegan and Vegetarian!
No animal products in SunButter! Side note, Sunbutter is also KOSHER!
It is powered by the sun!
Sunflowers are heliotropic, meaning they swivel to face the sun. This allows them to soak up as much sun-power as possible and makes SunButter a great source of healthy energy!
SunButter is eco friendly!
Sunflowers are super eco-friendly. They use way less water than almonds, which use 400 gallons of irrigation per 1lb jar. SunButter shells get recycled as bedding for turkeys!
SEEDS over Nuts!
SunButter has more vitamins and nutrients than most other nut butters. We’re looking at you cashew, almond, and peanut butter.
