SCD Recipe: Apple Almond Butter Cups

These little treats don’t contain in sugar. They are perfect if you are doing a detox like the 21 Day Sugar Detox program from Diane Sanfilippo.

My jumping off point for this recipe was 21DSD Green Apple and Coconut 2-Bite Treats from PaleOMG.

That recipe is completely fine for SCD also – and is nut free, so if you don’t want almond butter you can try that one out.

The main variation I used besides almond butter is using real butter to cook the apples instead of coconut oil. I also used some raw cocoa butter, but you can use all coconut butter if you don’t have any cocoa butter.

Makes 12


1 medium Granny Smith Apple
2 tbsp butter (you can use ghee or coconut oil – use these if doing 21 Day Detox or Paleo)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup cocoa butter (optional)
1/4 cup coconut butter (if not using cocoa butter increase to 1/2 cup)
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (make sure no sugar added)
1 – 2 tbsp almond butter


  1. Line a mini muffin pan with paper liners
  2. Peel and dice apple
  3. Add butter to small sauce pan
  4. Heat butter over medium heat until melted
  5. Add diced apple and cook until apples are soft (around 5 – 10 minutes)
  6. Stir in Cinnamon
  7. Remove from heat
  8. Stir in cocoa butter (if using, coconut butter and coconut oil)
  9. Stir until well combined
  10. If mixture is too stiff, place pan over low heat and stir until everything is soft and mixed
  11. Add 1/2 tsp almond butter to each muffin cup
  12. Pour apple mixture to fill cups
  13. Freeze for 20 – 30 minutes to harden
  14. Store in refrigerator or freezer
