You are going to want to make these ASAP. If you love a good Reeses you are going to LOVE these. I've been told they are even better! And you can enjoy them guilt free because they are only sweetened with a touch of pure maple syrup! These Peanut Butter Cups have just the right amount of sweetness and you will have no idea that they are "healthy".

Ingredients:

2/3 cup peanut butter {or almond butter}

1-2 TBS coconut flour

1 TBS maple syrup

3.5 ounces of dark chocolate {I used a dark chocolate bar}

Directions:

  1. Place mini cupcake liners in cupcake tin. 

  2. Add parchment paper to baking sheet. 

  3. Mix peanut butter, maple syrup and 1 TBS coconut flour in a bowl. If still runny add another TBS of coconut flour.

  4. Using your hands mold the peanut butter mixture into small balls.

  5. Place each ball on the prepared baking sheet.

  6. Once all balls are formed place sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes. 

  7. Then melt chocolate on low in a small saucepan.

  8. Once melted, add a little chocolate to each cupcake liner, then add a peanut butter ball. Finally, top with more chocolate until covered. 

  9. Place back in the freezer for 1 hour.

  10. Keep stored in the freezer.

*Instead of making cups you can make peanut butter balls and just cover each peanut butter ball with chocolate.
