- ½ cup natural peanut butter, I used Skippy natural
- 1 tbsp coconut oil melted and cooled
- 2 tbsp agave nectar or natural maple syrup
- 1 1/4 cup bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips plus 1 tsp coconut oil
- A few drops of water if needed for peanut butter filling
- Have a 12 cup mini muffin pan with paper liners in the freezer ready to fill
- Melt chocolate and 1 tsp coconut oil in a double boiler. Spoon out about 1 tsp chocolate and coat the bottom of each liner. Place back in freezer While preparing the peanut butter dough.
- Combine all peanut butter ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender. (First add oats and blend until powdered. Then add the rest of the peanut butter ingredients)Stop a few times and scrap the edges to make sure everything blends together. Oh
Scoop out 1 tbsp of dough and roll into a ball, place on top of each chocolate filled liner. Press down a little.
- Take your remaining chocolate and fill the rest of the mini cups. Make sure you cover the PB filling completely. Place back in freezer for at least 30 minutes.
- They are ready for you to peel away the paper and bite into this wonderful peanuty treat!
Store in fridge or freezer. (If kept in freezer, they will keep longer)
