Frozen Keto Almond Butter Cups




Yield 12 Ice Cube-Size Servings



Step #1:  Grease an ice cube tray with coconut oil cooking spray.

Step #2:  Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until well combined and remove from the heat.  Allow mixture to slightly cool (but it should still be in a liquid form)

Step #3:  Pour half of the chocolate mixture into the prepared ice cube tray, dividing it evenly among the 12 wells. This will form the bottom layer of the cups.

Step #4:  In a small bowl, mix together the coconut almond butter and stevia.

Step #5:  Place equal portions of the coconut almond butter on top of the chocolate mixture in the ice cube tray. This will form the middle layer of the cups.

Step #6:  Cover the coconut almond butter in each well with equal portions of the remaining chocolate mixture. This will form the top layer of the cups.

Step #7:  Place the ice cube tray in the freezer for 10 to 20 minutes, until the cups firm up.

Step #8:  Remove from the freezer and enjoy immediately or store in the freezer for up to 3 months until ready to consume. If storing, remove from the freezer about 30 minutes before enjoying to allow them to thaw slightly and make them easier to remove from the ice cube tray.

If you are unable to do almond butter, you can try cashew butter or sunflower butter.  I really love the coconut almond butter which is a mix of coconut butter and almond butter.  You can also use whatever sweetening agent you like, I prefer stevia but monk fruit is great as well.

Some people do well with sugar alcohols such as xylitol and erythritol but they are not as good for the body as stevia or monk fruit.

Dr Jockers Comments  

These look and taste amazing and they are low in carbs and loaded with good fats and antioxidants.  The fats in the coconut and almond butter help support ketosis and improve your metabolism and burn fat.  They are perfect for a summer-time afternoon snack for both kids and adults!

We use the Lily’s dark chocolate chips as they are sugar-free and sweetened with stevia and erythritol.  If you struggle with one of these sweetening agents, you can also use cacao nibs which don’t have the sweet flavor but are still very good in this recipe.

The flavor combination of the chocolate, almond butter and coconut butter is unbelievable!!!  The chocolate also provides polyphenol antioxidants that protect our brain and body.  It also has PEA’s that stimulate the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and endorphins, helping you feel great!!!

If you are on the autoimmune nutrition plan, you can try this recipe by making coconut butter cups with just coconut butter and stevia to avoid the almonds and chocolate.  This surprisingly tastes great, but isn’t quite the delicacy that the chocolate and almond bring to this recipe!

If you are looking for a fat burning snack recipe for the summer that the family will enjoy, than try these tasty frozen keto almond butter cups.  Enjoy!

  1. Why are you unwilling/ unable to include nutritional profile so us mere mortals can determine if these will suit our Keto diet plan? We need to measure these desserts accurately.

  2. MARANATHA products usually contain added sugar so I usually make butters myself The butter you recommend contains “evaporated cane syrup”, yet you list no sugar. Is sugar content insignificant? I will probably try mixing coconut and homemade almond butter. Thanks for the recipe though, it looks delicious.

    1. Hey Renie, The amount of sugar in this recipe is very minimal making it insignificant per serving. I encourage you to use your homemade almond butter if you can! I hope you like it! Blessings!

  3. I think you recipe is sensational! Tasty, easy to make, keto friendly . The one cube ( 1 serving size) is rich and curbs all urges for sweets. Yummy.
    I am equally happy with your autoimmune version leaving out the chocolate .
    Fussy fussy eater

  4. Are there any yogurt based frozen desserts that are easy and keto friendly?
    Looking for home made keto friendly pop that is yogurt based to sub for ice cream and provide probiotic benefit.

  5. I love the idea of these, and I love your work. Your articles are exceptional and I am deeply grateful t be on your mailing list. Thank you. I make my own sugar free, coconut based chocolate (with Inulin not stevia.) But, I’m really concerned about pouring hot/warm substances into an ice cube tray. (I have a silicone one, but still wouldn’t pour hot contents into it.) A plastic ice tray is a recipe for Xenoestrogen overload! It would certainly have the opposite effect than the desired one… I write a lot about Xenoestrogens. Here’s one of the several articles on the subject on my website. I hope it’s useful. Xenoestrogens, Weight Gain & Skin Health:

  6. Dr. Jockers, please only use organic almond butter as conventional almonds contain glyphosate as well as other toxins. If you love coconut almond butter, please make your own using organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil and organic almond butter where the only ingredient is almonds.
