I love taking a “treat” that’s terrible for your health and turning it into a healthified version that honors your wellness.
These sunbutter cups are a great example! They take a popular treat – chocolate peanut butter cups – and turn them into a delicious goodie that supports your health.
Better yet, you only need 4 plant-based ingredients to make them and they require ZERO baking time. SCORE!
Let’s dig in…
CHOCOLATE SUNBUTTER CUPS
~ Makes 12 Cups~
STEP 1: Place 12 muffin liners on a baking sheet or in a muffin tin.
STEP 2: Make the sunbutter base:
- 1/2 cup of organic sunflower seed butter
- 1 teaspoon of organic extra virgin coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of pure organic maple syrup
DIRECTIONS FOR STEP 2: In a small saucepan, melt the sunflower seed butter and coconut oil over medium heat. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Then, turn the heat off and whisk in the maple syrup. Divide the mixture evenly between the 12 muffin liners (about 1/2 a tablespoon per liner). Lastly, put the baking sheet or muffin pan with the liners in the freezer to set for at least 5 minutes.
STEP 3: Make the chocolate top
- 1 cup of organic cacao or cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup of organic extra virgin coconut oil
- 2-3 tablespoons of pure organic maple syrup (If you like a stronger chocolate flavor with less sweetness, stick with just 2 tablespoons.)
- Optional: Himalayan pink salt for sprinkling on top
DIRECTIONS FOR STEP 3: In a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat and whisk in the cacao powder. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Then, turn the heat off and and whisk in the maple syrup. Remove the baking sheet or muffin pan from the freezer, divide the chocolate mixture evenly between the 12 liners over the sunbutter mix (about 1 tablespoon per liner) and sprinkle a little Himalayan pink salt on top. Lastly, put the baking sheet or muffin pan back in the freezer for at least 10 minutes and ENJOY!
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
