3 Ingredient No-Bake Coconut Honey Nut Butter Cups

Yes, I know “simple” is so over-used. . . by recipes where one of the ingredients is puff pastry, or Nutella, or boxed cake mix. But this is the real deal, old-fashioned simple. I promise

3 Ingredient No-Bake Coconut Honey Nut Butter Cups (topped with melted chocolate, freeze-dried raspberries, and almonds)

If you don’t opt for the toppings, these are the simplest, easiest, no-brainiest bars ever to be. 

There are literally 3 ingredients, no baking. Only measuring. Measuring just three ingredients. Of course, I couldn’t leave well enough alone and added fancy toppings (freeze-dried raspberries, melted chocolate, and almonds). But those are totally optional.

The other amazing thing about these bars is that they’re so versatile. While peanut butter would be delicious, or you can make them with whatever nut butter you have in the pantry, I made them with a blend of nut and seed butter that I discovered this week at the grocery store by chance: NuttZo 7 Nut & Seed Butter. Variety is the spice of life, so this unusual blend of cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, Brazil Nuts, chia seeds, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds stole my heart.

  • NuttZo is a “beyond organic” brand because, in addition to being organic, their product is non-GMO, vegan, kosher, certified gluten-free, a B-Corp, and a women-owned business.
  • Nuttzo founder Danielle LiVolsi created the non-profit Project Left Behind, which supports orphanages and neglected children around the world through volunteering, donations, and funding (Danielle herself has two adopted boys, one of which has a severe vitamin deficiency and was the inspiration for NuttZo 7 Nut & Seed Butter).

The honey that I used to develop this recipe is a hyper-local, eucalyptus-infused, San Francisco version. After licking the spoon, I can report that it does indeed have the faintest flavor of eucalyptus. I purchased mine at Bi-Rite Market on Divisadero Street, I encourage you to look for it if you live in the area or will be visiting San Francisco soon!

Local Honey for 3 Ingredient No-Bake Coconut Honey Nut Butter Cups

I support my city of San Francisco’s urban green spaces and capacity for inner-city agricultural production by purchasing hyper-local honey.

What else can be said ’bout these delightful bars? They’re delicious as a substitute for energy bars or breakfast bars because the honey gives them a bit of sweetness, the nut butter provides protein, and the coconut makes them filling. The mixture of the three ingredients comes together in just a few minutes, should be crumbly and sticky, and have the texture of coarse sand:

Dough of 3 Ingredient No-Bake Coconut Honey Nut Butter Cups

Press the dough into a muffin pan (I used silicone for maximum ease in getting the cups out after freezing) and let them have a 30-minute stint in the freezer. Then. . . done! Simple, basic, yet delicious.

Thennnnn (if you’re like me) you doll the cups up with melted chocolate, almonds, and freeze-dried fruit. What can I say? I love a delicate, brightly-colored dusting of freeze-dried raspberries, a glossy drizzle of chocolate (I used unsweetened, 100% cacao) and a single almond as a focal point on each cup.

I saw these yesterday and promptly made them for my son’s after school snack. We LOOOVED them. It kind of reminded me of honey nut cereal, but so much better. I also love how easy they were to make! This will definitely be something we make quite often. Thanks so much for the recipe!
