Remember that crock pot apple butter recipe from a few weeks ago?  I blended it with almond butter to make these mega Almond Apple Butter Cups!

Apple butter, almond butter and dark chocolate make a heavenly combination! Think of it as a seasonal switch from your standard almond butter cup!  This recipe makes a little more filling than needed, but it makes an amazing breakfast! Spread the apple almond butter on toast with a dash of cinnamon…delicious!

Swap Suggestions:

  • Use sunbutter, peanut butter or cashew butter in place of almond butter
  • Use pumpkin butter in place of apple butter for a pumpkin spice version
  • Add a dollop of vegan date salted caramel sauce
