Just because it’s January and we are trying to be healthy, doesn’t mean that we can’t indulge in sweet treats. This recipe for one of our favorites is a healthy spin, using only raw ingredients and absolutely no refined sugar. These amazing peanut butter cups will fill every spot, and they are totally vegan and guilt free.
1/2 cup of coconut oil (melted)
1/4 cup of raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
pinch of sea salt
raw peanut butter or almond butter
Mix the coconut oil, cacao powder, vanilla, maple syrup, and sea salt together in a bowl to make the raw chocolate.
Then pour a small amount of chocolate (1-2 teaspoons) into each cupcake case to create the bottom.
Next place in the freezer for 5 minutes until completely firm.
Heat the nut butter with a dollop of honey/maple syrup until runny.
Place a small dollop of peanut/almond butter onto the center of each cup. Place in the freezer for another 5 mins.
Add more raw chocolate to each cup until it is filled to the top. place back in the freezer for another 5-10 minutes until solid.
Enjoy- and try not to eat all at once, it is hard!
