The almond, coconut oil, and raw cacao combination is definitely a hit – it makes these almond butter cups heavenly and also provides your body with much-needed nutrients.

Almonds are a great source of the key minerals magnesium and calcium, and are also loaded with protein. Raw cacao powder gives your liver the antioxidants it needs to neutralize free radicals and whisk them from the body.
