As someone who goes through almond butter like its going out of style, I’m surprised that I’m yet to share a recipe where it is the ultimate star of the show. These 3 Ingredient Keto Almond Butter Cups have just rectified that. 

I use almond butter in many of my recipes, more than the more popular peanut butter. Using the former provides a creamy and satisfying texture, without being overpowering. I use it in no-bake protein bars, paleo protein fudge bars and in super fluffy muffins

Like the coconut based keto cups, more and more health food stores and supermarkets are selling almond butter keto fudge cups. 

Similarly, the price of these cups is on par- VERY EXPENSIVE. As such, this easy recipe will prove you can easily make your own and in no time at all. Besides, this homemade version ensures you know exactly what goes in them too!

An easy, three-step process

  1. Melt your almond butter and coconut oil together and mix until combined. 
  2. Add the desired level of sweetness 
  3. Transfer to lined muffin tin or pan and refrigerate or freeze until firm

Let’s quickly talk taste and texture of these keto cups.

The taste and texture of these keto almond butter cups are seriously satisfying. They are fudgy, smooth, creamy and slightly sweet, but it really comes down to what sort of almond butter you use. Let’s break it down!

Homemade Almond Butter

As someone who uses almond butter in a plethora of my recipes, buying store bought almond butter became a little too costly. Instead, I make my own, which is ridiculously simple if you have a good quality blender or food processor.

Making homemade almond butter needs just 1 ingredient- Almonds! However, the kind of almonds can really affect the final taste and texture.

Raw unsalted almonds- A more nutty flavor, more natural sweetness and generally lighter in color. 

Oven roasted or toasted almonds- A delicious prominent flavor, more savory tasting and a little darker in color. 

Flavored roasted almonds- These will make this recipe not keto-friendly, but you can use flavored almonds like cocoa roasted or cinnamon sugar. 

Store Bought Almond Butter

Not all store-bought almond butter yield the same flavors or textures. Some are super crunchy and others are a little too sweet or salty. For these keto almond butter cups, as long as it is a drippy kind (smooth, mixes well when a spoon is inserted into the jar), it will work beautifully. 

Personally, I love this brand of almond butter, as it is super drippy and creamy. If you prefer one which is a little sweeter, I can vouch for this maple almond butter

Keto Friendly Sweeteners

There are a handful of sweeteners you can use for these cups. I wanted to also keep them paleo and vegan-friendly, so stuck to two favorites-

Liquid Stevia- This is my favorite sweetener for these fudge cups, as it doesn’t require any additional mixing. Just be wary that the brand you use does not leave you with a bitter aftertaste. 

Monk Fruit Sweetener- Granulated monk fruit sweetener has the same texture and taste of table sugar. If you choose to use this form of sweetener, you’ll notice that you will need to ensure the almond butter/coconut oil mixture is still quite warm and liquid-like, otherwise, clumps will form. Monk fruit also comes in a liquid form too, which will be similar to the liquid stevia. 

Alternatively, you can omit the sweetener from the almond butter/coconut oil mixture and do what I did- Add a layer of chocolate on top. Ensure that is it either stevia sweetened or dairy-free

  1. Almond butter cups are my ultimate weakness. I used to devour those mini Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups all the time! They were AMAZING! I bet that these are just as addictive, if not more!

  2. Hi!! This photo thrills me. I used to eat this well and have relapsed. I’m inspired again thanks to your site (stumbled upon via Pinterest). I’m huge on looks because I love to bake…so…how did you get such smooth edges when liners have the zig zags of say, a cupcake? AND your chocolate looks milky, is it Enjoy Life mini chips you used? So excited to do this but I want it to look like yours !!!
