This amazing vegan and healthy snack recipe from Onist Food has three of our favourite things: almonds, avocados, and chocolate! The bases of these cups are made from almonds, which are a source of monounsaturated fats. Monounsaturated fats help lower high blood cholesterol, which helps reduce our risk of heart disease. The Onist filling is a source of potassium, which helps us to maintain a normal blood pressure. So this delicious vegan snack is heart-healthy all round and the perfect summery chocolatey treat!
For the base:
200g ground almonds
30g cacao powder
40g coconut oil
75ml maple syrup
For the filling:
Dark Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Orange and Mint Onist Pots
Various fruits and chopped nuts, combination suggestions below
- Dark Chocolate: Strawberry and flaked almond
- Salted Caramel: Raspberry and pistachio
- Mint: Mint leaf and cacao nib
- Orange: Orange rind twirl and cashew nuts
For the base, preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease a small tart tray. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Press the mix into the tins until to form the cups. Bake for 15 minutes and leave to cool.
For the filling, spoon the Onist pots into the cooled chocolate cups. Decorate each flavour of chocolate cups accordingly (feel free to mix this up!)
