Small but mighty!
No matter what new treats we’re trying, these MINI CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS remain a fan favorite. There is always a stash in our fridge or freezer.
Just 6 ingredients, Gluten-free, Vegan and no bake, they are a healthier version of the classic and SO YUMMY!
And they are made with only 6 ingredients: natural peanut butter, maple syrup, graham cracker crumbs, coconut oil, mini dairy free chocolate chips and dairy free milk of choice.
The graham cracker crumbs are mixed in with the peanut butter for a little crunch and they are topped with sea salt or chopped walnuts for some extra yumm!
And did I mention they are SUPER easy to make? Perfect to meal prep a batch and keep in the fridge or freezer for when you want something sweet.
In a saucepan, you’ll heat the peanut butter and coconut oil until melted, then stir in the maple syrup and crushed graham crackers. Then scoop the mix into the mini muffin tins. One of my kids likes the just like this— without the chocolate!
I however, love the chocolate on top! So next you melt the chocolate chips and almond milk and pour over the peanut butter mixture. Top with walnuts or sea salt if using and let set in the refrigerator for a few hours. You can eat them warm… they’ll taste great! But they’ll hold form better obviously if you let them set.
Have a peanut allergy? While I have not made these with anything other than peanut butter, they should work equally well and taste super yummy with other nut butters or sunflower seed butter. Leave a comment below is you try them this way 🙂
Hope you love these as much as we do!
