Paleo Barleygrass White Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

Paleo, Vegan and darn right tasty!

So the lovely people at Naturya sent me out some Barleygrass Powder to experiment with, and in return I created this recipe to feature on their website! Pretty cool huh?!

This recipe takes the classic nut butter style cup and puts a clean, mean, and green spin on it. Barleygrass has a very ‘clean’ and earthy taste to it which is almost comparable in flavour to matcha green tea.

Delicious! (And I’m not just saying that!)

Makes: 6 medium sized cups

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

For the barleygrass white chocolate:

2 tbsp coconut milk powder
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
50g cacao butter
1 tbsp barleygrass powder

For the almond butter filling:

2 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp coconut sugar
Pinch of Himalyan pink salt

Method:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the barleygrass white chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl (except for the barleygrass powder) over a bain-marie. Heat on a low heat, stirring frequently until fully melted.
  2. Whisk in your barleygrass powder until fully blended.
  3. Divide one half of the mixture between 6 cupcake cases. Place in the freezer to set. Set aside the remaining mixture.
  4. Now prepare your almond butter filling. Combine all of the ingredients in a heatproof bowl over a bain-marie. Heat on a low heat, stirring frequently until the mixture comes together into a smooth paste.
  5. Remove the chocolate cups from the freezer and divide the almond butter filling equally between the 6 cups. Return to the freezer for 5 minutes.
  6. Return the remaining barleygrass chocolate to the bain-marie and mix thoroughly.
  7. Remove the cups from the freezer and evenly divide the remaining chocolate mixture between the 6 cups. Return to the freezer until set.
  8. Once set remove from the cupcake cases and enjoy!
