Eleven days since my last post? Un-conceivable. And yet, no pressure to do anything more, right? Just when I can, a little post about eating single-serve meals. Gotta keep the journey in mind. Okay, enough with the Dude-isms, how about a post for a good dessert, easy-made.
Yes, most people don’t have coconut oil around, but it’s really good for stuff like this, and for other things, too. Healthy. Also, some Paleo doesn’t like peanut butter, so you can use almond butter instead, hence the really long, unwieldy appellation above. But to eat one? Amazing. Satisfies the sweet-tooth with a minimum of carbs and refined sugar. Maybe a glass of (some kind of) milk to wash it down. Super easy, super good.
Homemade Paleo Friendly Peanut or Almond Butter Cup For One
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 to 2 teaspoons honey (to taste)
1 tablespoon peanut or almond butter (again, how much ever you want)
Melt the first three ingredients in the microwave, 15-20 seconds should do it. Mix it up, put half of it in a muffin cup/tin/ramekin, stick that stuff in a freezer for a couple minutes. Bring it out, put down the nut/seed butter of your choice, maybe sprinkle a little salt on it for good measure, pour the rest of the chocolate mixture on top (you’ll need to keep stirring). Back in the freezer. Wait a few more minutes, then take it out and enjoy. The chocolate is soft, the inside is salty, and all of it’s just the right kind of sweet.
No applause, no applause, just throw money. But not quarters, ‘cause those things hurt.
