Chocolate Chia Berry Sun Butter Cups


Chocolate Chia Berry Sun Butter Cups, Paleo /   These Chocolate Chia Berry Sun Butter Cups are so easy to make and insanely good. Dark chocolate cups with a sunflower seed butter and berry chia jam filling. These little treats are grain free, paleo, dairy free, nut free and vegan and with low carb options. They are so simple to make and my kids were fighting over these. I was barely able to save one for myself. We will be making these frequently, as my family was pestering me to make more after they ate them all. They are loaded with antioxidants from the berries and dark chocolate. These contain the super food chia seeds. Chia seeds are high in fiber, aid in weight loss, lower blood pressure, stabilize blood sugar, and hydrate the body. Chia seeds make a great thickener for the homemade berry jam filling. My daughter said these were better than See’s candy. At least we know they are much healthier too. The berry chia jam was great and I had some jam left over to save for making these again. I used a mini muffin pan like this one: Candy molds or muffin cups.

    Going to try these berry cups. I’ve made the “breakfast frosting” which satisfies my sweet tooth for now. I just started on low carb diet one week ago and hubby is trying but he has bigger sweet tooth than me and can’t fight his cravings for it especially after dinner so hopefully trying these will help.

      Hi Leslie, I have such a sweet tooth too. That is why I try to have low carb treats on hand. I can not just do meat and veggies. Wish I could. I hope he likes them and can find a way to enjoy low carb treats and stay on the diet.
