Guilt-Free Peanut Butter Cups

Look at that picture and tell me that doesn’t look JUST LIKE A Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It looks like one but the difference is, this one is guilt-free! Very low in carbs, no sugar, gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free. Plus it’s so easy to make! Indulge with these babies because it’s made with coconut oil which means you can practically not count the calories in your daily intake!

RECIPE

  • 1 cup of unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 cup of good-tasting, good-smelling coconut oil*, melted
  • 2-3 tsp of stevia (depends on your taste)
  • Agave Nectar (optional)
  • Peanut Butter
  1. Fluff cocoa with a fork to break up any chunks.
  2. Add melted coconut oil.
  3. Mix in Stevia adding more or less depending on taste. Add a stick or a few drops of agave nectar to taste.
  4. Line a mini-muffin pan with paper liners (or use a regular-sized muffin pan just don’t fill as much)
  5. Pour chocolate into each cup about 1/8 inch deep. Place muffin pan in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes or until chocolate hardens.
  6. After 10 minutes, spoon some peanut butter on top of each chocolate cup and pour a little more chocolate to cover the peanut butter.
  7. Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  8. Voila! Guilt-Free Peanut Butter Cups.

(Store these in the refrigerator at all times.)

*Note: It’s important to use good-tasting, good-smelling coconut oil. I like the brand Spectrum. I made the mistake of using some brand I’ve never heard of and I ended up tossing the whole batch. So be careful!

  1. These look AMAZING! After reading this Mom’s Guide (http://www.1dental.com/moms-guide/), I started taking better inventory of what I feed my son – mostly all sugar and processed foods! I wanted to make some changes and so am on the hunt for new recipes. Thanks for the tip on the brand of coconut oil you use too. I’ve heard that’s a healthier substitute but would have never known there are tastier brands.

  2. Thank you! Yes, there are many brands but I really like the Spectrum line. Happy Chocolate Making! Hope your son enjoys there.

  4. These look amazing and my husband would love these since he’s on a low carb diet. How many peanut butter cups does this make? I’m trying to calculate nutrition per peanut butter cup. Thanks!

  5. These are pretty darn good. It’s been a while since I’ve made these. I think it makes 18. Depends on how much chocolate and PB you use.
