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!
~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
