Truth. These Thin Mint Almond Butter Cups are my favorite nut butter cups out of all of the cups we’re sharing this week :D They’re just so minty and chocolatey and perfect in every way. AND- if you like Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, then these will be your jam…I promise! These babies are made with an almond butter base, sweetened with maple syrup, and flavored with mint extract. Let’s take a look at everything you’ll need!

What You Need

If you’re not an almond butter person, I suggest going cashew butter before peanut butter just because peanut butter has such a distinct flavor.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. First, line muffin tin with nonstick cupcake liners and set aside.
  2. Place all ingredients except for salt and chocolate chips into a medium-sized bowl and mix well.
  3. Using a tablespoon as your scoop, scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter into each muffin liner. Repeat until you’ve evenly distributed into 12 liners.
  4. Sprinkle sea salt and chocolate chips on top of cups.
  5. Place in freezer for at least 20 minutes or until firm.
  6. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If your batter isn’t easily poured into the cupcake tin, add more melted coconut oil. You do not want your batter to be too thick and sometimes thickness is dependent on how oily your nut butter is.
  • Option to replace maple syrup with honey.
  • Option to replace almond butter with any other nut butter such as cashew or peanut.
  • Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
