Clean Eating Peanut Butter Cups

Eating clean does not mean that you have to give up your favorite desserts.  This Clean Eating Peanut Butter Cup recipe has become a favorite in our house.  I love that it is packed with superfoods such as Cacao powder and extra virgin coconut oil. 

I also use the coconut oil, cacao powder, honey, and pure vanilla extract to make all my chocolate sauces.  It’s a great alternative to using refined sugar and still packs a sweet punch.

Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 TSBP Coconut Oil
  • 1 Cup Cacoa Powder. I use Nativas.
  • 1 Cup Raw Honey
  • 4 TBSP Peanut Butter (I use a one that has just peanuts and salt)
  • 1/4 TSP Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 TSP Sea Salt

Instructions

  1. In a sauce pan, add coconut oil, cacao powder, honey, vanilla, and salt, and cook on medium heat. Stirring consistently until the ingredients are mixed. Let it cool for a second ( you do not want it too cool too long or the chocolate sauce will not stay liquid).
  2. Then add a layer of chocolate sauce on the bottom of a freezer safe container. I have used both 12 piece muffin pans or individual muffin pans.
  3. Then add a TBSP of Peanut butter to each muffin pan (if using the 12 piece muffin pan, I would suggest a TSP of Peanut butter)
  4. Then layer a little more of the chocolate sauce on top.
  5. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours, then serve.
  6. You can either use a spoon to eat them from or take them out of the pan and eat them by hand.

These are the products that I used and recommend for making this recipe.
