Ultimate Vegan Keto Almond Butter Cups
Staying true to your keto diet when you have a soft spot for sweets can get complicated. If you’re on a vegan keto diet, things get even trickier. Thankfully, there’s an oh-so-satisfying remedy for your sugar cravings – vegan keto almond butter cups.
These are a perfect make-ahead dessert and all you need are four ingredients, a bowl, and a candy mold. Seriously, if you love sweets and don’t have a candy mold, you’re missing out – especially if you do keto. Nothing beats being able to treat yourself while skipping the guilt of cheating on your diet. A candy mold works a treat for other homemade keto desserts like this stunning white chocolate strawberry freezer fudge.
There isn’t much active cooking time for this recipe, but you will need some patience to allow the chocolate to set. Fortunately, this means you won’t get tied down in the kitchen, so you can go about your business while you wait for the chocolate to harden. Of course, if you want to get creative you can swap up your nut butters. Macadamia, cashew, hazelnut, and pecan butters are all excellent choices if you’re on the keto diet as they fall on the lower end of the carb spectrum.
