Servings: 8

Preparation Time: 2 hours

The Crust Cups:

The Filling:

  • 1 cup raw almonds – must be soaked for at least 4 hours & drained before use
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot starch
  • 2 tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Tip:  The filling can be made the day before to give it more time to set up.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees °F

Crust Cups:

In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot starch and salt.  Cut in shortening, vanilla and honey until crumbly.  Slowly pour in milk until mixture forms a dough ball – adding more milk if necessary.

Press pieces of dough into greased muffin tins.  Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until slightly brown.  Remove from oven and let cool completely.


In a high powered blender, combine ingredients for filling and puree at least 3 minutes or until completely smooth.  The longer you blend, the less grainy the texture will be.

Refrigerate filling for at least 2 hours.

Spoon a dollop of filling into each prepared cup and top with drizzled chocolate, cocoa powder or berries.  Enjoy!

*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal.
