Method:

Add coconut oil and cocoa into a pyrex glass bowl and warm slowly. Once a paste has formed add the stevia extract, maple syrup, salt and vanilla. Stir until combined well – the mixture will be fairly thick.

While the chocolate mix is melting, prepare the filling. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, almond butter, stevia and salt. Mix using a spatula or your hands. Adjust sweetness and salt to taste.

Using a melon baller, large spoon or piper, scoop heaping tablespoons of the chocolate into mini muffin case. Use your thumb to make a well in the centre.

Using a teaspoon, scoop almond butter mixture and form 1⁄2 inch balls. Push the almond butter balls onto the chocolate, flattening with your fingers. Coat with the chocolate mix if you like although you may need a little more than above ingredients to cover them all.

Transfer to the fridge and chill for 30 minutes.

Remove from fridge. Using a thin knife, run the blade around the edge of a cup and pop it out. Or use silicon cases.

Store almond butter cups in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
