Ingredients and Substitutes

Earth Echo Cacao Bliss: Earth Echo Cacao Bliss adds a rich, chocolatey depth to these almond butter pumpkin cups, enhancing the overall flavor profile with its superfood qualities.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil helps solidify the chocolate exterior of these almond butter pumpkin cups. I do not recommend replacing it with anything else.

Natural Sweeteners: Coconut sugar and/or maple syrup are used to add a touch of sweetness to both the filling and chocolate exterior of these cups. Feel free to omit them or swap them out for any sweetener you prefer.

Vanilla Extract: A touch of vanilla further enhances the sweet notes of this recipe. Feel free to omit if need be.

Salt: A pinch of salt balances the sweetness and enhances the flavors in these pumpkin butter cups. Additionally, you can sprinkle them with flaked salt if you are a fan of salted chocolate.

Almond Butter: Almond butter brings a nutty richness and creaminess to your cups. If you prefer variation, cashew butter or peanut butter can be excellent substitutes.

Pumpkin Puree: Pure pumpkin puree contributes a moist texture and a subtle earthy flavor to these treats. Do not use pumpkin pie filling, but rather pure pumpkin puree with one ingredient only: pumpkin!

Pumpkin Spice: Pumpkin spice blend provides that quintessential autumn flavor. If you’re out of it, try making your own with a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.

Top Tip

For an extra layer of texture and flavor, try adding a sprinkle of crushed toasted almonds or pecans on top of your almond butter pumpkin cups before the chocolate sets. This delightful crunch will elevate your treat to the next level!
