Keto Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cups
Updated: Oct 8, 2018
A guilt-free delicious treat
This is a quick no-cook/bake dessert that is the perfect treat for when you're craving a something sweet. We use simple, easy to find ingredients such as cocoa powder, peanut butter and coconut oil. We used creamy peanut butter in our recipe but feel free to try it out with chunky peanut butter for an extra bite!
Nutrition Information of Key Ingredients (WW Points per cup - 3SP )
*Note: Nutrition information may vary slightly. Nutritional information is negligible for all other ingredients
Serving Size - 1 Peanut Butter cup.
Recipe yields - 6 Peanut Butter cups
Prep Time: 10 mins Freeze Time: 30 mins
Coconut Oil (melted)- 50 ml
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder- 30 gms
Peanut Butter - 30 gms
Swerve/ any sweetener of your choice - to taste (we used about 6 tsp)
Salt - a pinch (optional)
6 silicon cupcake molds
Method of Preparation
In a bowl mix the cocoa powder and coconut oil till it forms a creamy paste
Add sweetener and salt (optional) and mix well until dissolved completely.
Pour 1 tsp of the chocolate mixture into each mold and swirl the mixture around so that it lines the mold to create a chocolate cup. There should be half of the mixture remaining. Keep this aside as this will be used later.
Place the molds in the freezer for about 10 mins. The chocolate cup should slightly harden up during this time.
In a bowl place the peanut butter and melt until soft. You may add sweetener to the peanut butter if you want the dessert to be sweeter.
Take out the molds from the freezer and evenly add the peanut butter to the molds.
Place the molds back in the freezer for 10 more minutes
Now add the rest of your coconut oil and cocoa mixture to the molds. Make sure to cover the entire peanut butter layer.
Place in the freezer for 10 more minutes before you take a bite into it.
Enjoy your delicious dessert whenever you crave a treat!
Just note that these melt fairly quickly. So remove them from the freezer just before you want to eat them.
Pssst... don't have silicon molds, just use a ice cube tray.
