HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS

This recipe is from my Instagram archives, and I thought it deserved a new home, here on the blog. I hope you like this recipe as a healthier option to a sweet treat.



Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
{Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)

Ingredients:
The Chocolate Layer
1/3 cup homemade peanut butter, or favorite brand of PB
2 1/2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
1 Tbsp cacao powder
2 Tbsp chocolate plant protein (linked the one I use)
2 Tbsp maple syrup

The Peanut Butter Layer
1/3 cup homemade peanut butter, or favorite brand of PB
2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp maple syrup
pinch of sea salt

How To:

Step 1 - Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners, spray with coconut oil. Set aside.
Step 2 - In a medium bowl, stir together all ingredients for the chocolate layer, until smooth. Set aside.
Step 3 - In another bowl, stir together all ingredients for the peanut butter layer, until smooth. Set aside.
Step 4 - Scoop a heaping 1/2 Tbsp of the chocolate layer into each muffin cup. Repeat until all are filled. Pick up the tray and shake/tap gently to even out the layer.
Step 5 - Repeat step 4, but now with the peanut butter layer.
Step 6 - Sprinkle each cup with sea salt - I love to use flaked sea salt for this - place the tray in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until firm.
