I literally eat this snack 5 days a week, but if you follow me on Instagram you know this by now ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
A few weeks ago when I was really on the ~low carb~ bandwagon I was jonesing for a carby sweet treat but hit a dead end for what I could actually eat. For awhile I was making this snack over a rice cake, and while that combo is still delish, swapping the cake for an apple is how this absolute fave was born.
Flash forward to this past weekend when I was stocking up to make these peanut butter treats and totally spaced that I had picked up cinnamon almond butter by accident. Insert quote about ‘there being no accidents’, because the cinnamon almond butter was an added bonus to an already poppin’ flavor combination.
All jokes aside, these bites are packed with rich peanut buttery dark chocolate, creamy (cinnamon) almond butter, crisp apple slices and sweet syrupy honey goodness. If you’re still confused as to why these are the bomb dot com let me break it down.
This snack is amazing for 3 reasons:
- Lightish and low-carb (hello, apple)
- Dark chocolate + Peanut butter = no brainer
- Honey drizzle 100% seals the deal
And if that’s still not enough, did I mention these can be thrown together in 10 minutes or less and consist of 95% of ingredients you already have in your pantry? 🙌
- 1 package (2 cups) Justin's dark chocolate peanut butter cups
- approx. 1/3 cup almond butter
- approx. 1/4 cup honey or agave (for drizzle)
- 1 apple (any apple will work but I prefer Gala)
Cut your apple into 8 slices, set aside
Chop your peanut butter cups into approx. 1/2 inch thick chunks, set aside
Put a schmear of almond butter on each apple and begin sticking the peanut butter cup chunks into the almond butter
Drizzle honey on each slice and serve
