Project Description

Keto Cacao Almond Butter Cups

With the holidays right around the corner, now is the perfect time to share the true spirit of Cacao with the ones you love. Let’s skip the high-processed, artificial chocolates this year for a spin on the classic peanut butter cup everyone can feel good about!

This Keto Cacao Almond Butter Cup recipe uses fair-trade, 100% pure heirloom cacao rich with antioxidants, minerals, and alkaloids that help support energy and mood.

Cacao is associated with elevated mood and blissfulness due to natural compounds such as anandamide.

Think you could handle an even bigger boost to your mood and vitality?  Just a dash of Maca Powder to these super simple, no-bake Cacao Almond Butter Cups will help reduce stress, balance hormones, and increase stamina and libido.
