Superfood Cups


Last week I made superfood cups. I love making little cup treats. They're easy and the perfect snack size when you need a little "something". You know - for when the mid afternoon sweet tooth creeps up. I've made so many cup sized treats over the years, most of them being chocolate and mini cheesecakes, but today is all about the superfoods. These babies are filled with lucuma, maca, mesquite,  bee pollen, hemp seeds, and coconut among other things.


Superfood Cups

Add whatever "add ins" you like. I've listed the items I used in this batch but I also like adding goji berries and cacao nibs.

1/2 cup melted coconut oil
6 tablespoons melted coconut butter
4 tablespoons lucuma
3 tablespoons maca
2 tablespoons mesquite
2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons maple sugar
1/2 teaspoons vanilla powder
------------
Add ins:
Dehydrated buckwheat
Dried mulberries
Coconut Flakes
Hemp Seeds
Cashews

Sift the powders into a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir all together. Make sure the mixture stays warm to avoid ceasing.
Stir in whatever amount of "add ins" you want.
Pour the mixture into little paper cups or silicone cups.
Chill for at least 20 minutes in the fridge.


Here are a few of my other favorite "little cup treats"

Raw White Chocolate Cups with Purple Mulberries



Carob Cups (one of my all time favourites)


Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Cups

Mmm peanut butter cups - can never go wrong with those, right?!
