Paleo Choc Hazelnut Cups!

We’re SO excited to share this delish recipe for Paleo Choc Hazelnut Cups! The best thing about this recipe is that it is ridiculously quick and easy. We’re talking chuck all the ingredients in your blender… whiz, pour and set kinda style! Yes, the best kind of style!

The inspiration for our Paleo Choc Hazelnut Cups came from a past love of Ferrero Rochers and the fact that combining hazelnuts and chocolate is like the best idea ever… a taste sensation, party in your mouth, yum, delish, yes!

    Hi Jo! Hmm this one is tricky! The coconut oil really allows it to set properly. You could try tahini? It will change the taste a lot and it may be too rich. Maybe start with half a batch just in case it doesn’t turn out (don’t want to waste ingredients!). Let us know how you go! 🙂 e + c

  2. Oh my! I made these today for dessert. I wasn’t expecting much, but my goodness, they were delicious! Even the husband loved them (normally he complains about the ‘healthier’ desserts!!) Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Will be raving about your site to everyone I know! Haha! 🙂

    Hi Danielle! We’re all about keeping delicious healthy food simple! Hehe! So glad that it impressed you and your husband! Woohoo and thank you so much for spreading the word! <3

  4. These sound fab and I’m going to make them when I finish the Whole30! Just a question about the rice malt syrup; is this allowed on paleo (being a grain derivative)?

    Hi Virginia! Rice malt syrup isn’t Paleo, but it’s low fructose so we do use it on occasions. We find that it doesn’t impact us negatively at the time (no allergies etc) BUT to make it 100% Paleo simply swap for raw honey or delicious 100% maple syrup (YUM!). e + c 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
