and as i was eating my little peanut butter cups, i managed to find another cpr/first aid class this saturday and get my work schedule switched around for the weekend, so all was well in the world again. lesson learned: don't trust google maps. like, ever. lesson #2 learned: chocolate and peanut butter fix everything.
i also realized today that these so called paleo peanut butter cups aren't exactly paleo. because peanut butter isn't paleo. major faileo. oh well, good thing i don't eat paleo! and i just said paleo like 5,000 times. i should probably shut up soon.
except if you really are one of those hardcore paleo peeps, you might want to know that almond butter works just as well in this recipe. they're still just as (if not more) delicious!
oh and one more thing: if you make these, all of your life's problems will be temporarily solved. promise.
Healthy "Paleo" Peanut Butter Cups
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Keywords: dessert snack gluten-free paleo vegetarian
Ingredients (12 mini cups)
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1/3 cup all natural unsalted peanut or almond butter
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
Melt the coconut oil in a small bowl, then whisk in cocoa powder, coconut sugar, and coconut flour.
Spray a mini muffin tin with coconut oil, then pour about a teaspoon of the chocolate mixture into each cup. Place pan in freezer.
While the bottom layer is freezing for about 5 minutes, mix together peanut butter (or almond butter), honey, coconut sugar, and salt in a separate small bowl.
Take pan out of freezer, and spoon peanut butter mixture into each cup. Flatten out the mixture with the back of a spoon, then pour about a teaspoon of the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter mixture.
Place pan back in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
To take the cups out of the pan, simply turn it upside down on a clean countertop.
Store these cups in the freezer and serve immediately (the coconut oil will melt quickly at room temperature).
