DIY Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

Seriously these little cups are a tiny piece of heaven. In the low carbohydrate world they are often referred to as “fat bombs” since they contain some of the good fats (*medium chain triglycerides) to help your body function at its optimal level-however something about eating a “fat bomb” just doesn’t sound right to me- regardless of how good they taste.

 

Here are some variations we enjoy at our homestead- feel free to create your own. Be sure to comment back here and let me know how they came out. Try almond butter in place of the peanut butter; add a 1tsp. of vanilla extract or a 1 T. left over coffee, sprinkle with sea salt instead of peanuts, mix in shredded coconut, or sprinkle with dye free sprinkles for a special treat for the kids.

Yields; 24 cups

Ingredients;

 

 

1/2 C. Peanut butter

 

1 Tsp. Sweetener of choice (i.e Truvia, agave)

 

8 T. Cocoa Powder

 

1/2 C. Unsalted Butter (use Earth Balance Butter to make it dairy free)

 

(crushed peanuts optional)

 

Instructions;

 

1. In a medium sized, over low/medium heat, gently stir in all ingredients until well combined and melted.

 

2. Carefully pour in silicone cupcake pan, foil cups, or any cupcake liner really.

 

3. Add a pinch of crushed peanuts (or desired add in) if desired-if not leave it be.

 

4. Freeze for 30-35 minutes and enjoy. You will want to leave these in the freezer until ready to serve as they do melt rather quickly.
