How to make chocolate peanut butter cups

Here’s what you’ll need to make this simple recipe:

  • rolled oats– oats are a rich source of fiber, protein and iron. They’re loaded with important vitamins and minerals, like phosphorous, magnesium, zinc and folate. I always have oats in my pantry for easy-to-make recipes
  • natural peanut butter, I love using a creamy peanut butter made with roasted peanuts, but no added sugar
  • pure maple syrup, to lightly sweeten the peanut butter mixture 
  • chia seeds– the chia seeds provide omega-3 fats, and help bind the mixture together
  • dairy-free chocolate chips
  • coconut oil, to help thin out the melted chocolate
  • salt & cinnamon, for added flavor
  1. Prepare the peanut butter oat base by combining the oats, peanut butter, maple syrup, chia seeds, salt and cinnamon
  2. Line a 12-count muffin tray with paper lines and flatten about 1 tbsp of the oat mixture into each cup
  3. Melt the chocolate chips with coconut oil, then mix in some peanut butter to create the peanut butter chocolate topping
  4. Top each cup with melted chocolate and flakey sea salt
  5. Freeze to set for about an hour, then keep stored in the freezer
