Healthy Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter cups are one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Peanut butter and chocolate is pretty much the best combination ever. It doesn’t need a lot of talk. Peanut butter and chocolate. That’s all you need to say and you have peoples attention. I used to make peanut butter cups fairly regularly last year. I’m not really sure why I stopped. But they’re back and they’re better!

Peanut Butter Cups

Ingredients

Peanut butter bottoms:

  • 3/4 cups natural peanut butter (no added sugar, fats, salts, etc)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp agave nectar
  • 1 scoop (1/4 cup) vanilla Sunwarrior protein powder (or of your choosing)
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds

Chocolate tops:

  • 1 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut sugar (or agave nectar)

Directions:

Combine all the peanut butter bottoms ingredients together in a bowl. Scoop about 1 tbsp of the mixture into lined muffin tins. Should make 1 dozen. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or in a pot on low heat. Once melted add the remaining ingredients. Stir until well combined and remove from heat. Scoop 1 tbsp of the mixture on top of the peanut butter. Put back in the freezer for another 15 minutes or until hardened.

Tip: Keep them in the freezer. This will keep them from melting and loosing their shape.
