Healthy Peanut Butter Cups



Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven!


With the Easter Bunny set to arrive this month, why not try a healthier variety of chocolate & peanut butter eggs?

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup organic, natural peanut butter (or any nut butter of your choice!)

  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 1 Tablespoon coconut flour

  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt (only if your nut butter is unsalted)

  • 1/2 Cup dark chocolate chips

  • 1 Teaspoon coconut oil (I also used avocado oil with success)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, combine nut butter, maple syrup, coconut flour, salt. Mix well for a uniform batter.

  • Use a spoon to scoop batter into balls (using your hands to roll into egg-like shapes). The original recipe said 6 balls, but I found those too big for my taste, and preferred smaller ones. About 18-20.

  • Place on a plate with parchment paper, and into the freezer to set.

  • Melt the dark chocolate chips and oil.

  • Remove the nut butter middles from freezer and dunk each one in the chocolate so they are completely coated.

  • Return the chocolate covered balls to the parchment paper, and spoon any additional chocolate over the tips for a thicker chocolate coating (if you’d like).

  • Allow to set in freezer for at least 15 minutes before serving.

  • Store and serve directly from freezer, as the chocolate will soften at room temperature.

Enjoy this healthier alternative to a popular Easter treat! 🐣
