On a short cupcake stand there are homemade peanut butter cups stacked. The one on top has a large bite out of it. In the foreground we see peanuts and a spoonful of peanut butter. In the background we see a glass of milk, more peanuts and peanut butter cups.

Chocolate Mixture

1 c. semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (Hu Baking Gems or if you are sugar free, I recommend the brand Lily’s)

1 tsp. coconut oil


Peanut Butter Mixture

½ c. crunchy peanut butter (or another nut butter/sun butter)

2 Tbsp. maple syrup

1 Tbsp. coconut oil

2 ½ Tbsp. almond or coconut flour

2 tsp. vanilla extract (I use either homemade, Watkins baking vanilla or the Kirkland brand)


*Maldon salt or sea salt for sprinkling!



-Put your chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Microwave first for 30 seconds, then stir and repeat microwaving at 10 second increments stirring each time in between. If you microwave your chocolate any longer it will BURN & you will have to start over.

-Once your chocolate is melted, set it aside to cool slightly (but don’t allow it to reharden).

-Put the crunchy peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, almond flour and vanilla extract in a medium bowl or food processor. Mix until smooth.

-Line a mini cupcake pan with mini cupcake liners. In each liner put 1 teaspoon on the chocolate mixture on the bottom, 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter mixture in the middle and another teaspoon of the chocolate mixture on top.

-Finish it off by sprinkling some Maldon salt or sea salt on top!

-Place them in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes to harden


happy eating!
