Instructions

  • Mix together peanut butter, maple syrup and coconut flour.
  • In a bowl microwave the dark chocolate until it melts. Stir every 30 seconds to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn.
  • Once chocolate is melted, stir in cereal.
  • Fill peanut butter cup molds half way with chocolate cereal mixture. Use the opposite end of a spoon to push the chocolate mixture against the ridges in the cups to form a shell along the outside of the cup mold. Place in freezer for 10 minutes
  • Remove molds from freezer. Press ¼ tsp of peanut butter mixture (or more depending on your mold size) into the cups. The cups should be just about full.
  • Pour chocolate cereal mixture on top of the cups, sprinkle with extra cereal + place back into the freezer for an additional 10 minutes until solid. Remove from molds + store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer 

Notes

Substitutions for this recipe:
  • Nut butter - You can use any type of nut butter for this recipe. Cashew, almond or even sunflower seed butter will work fine in this recipe!
  • Chocolate - You can also use any kind of chocolate you prefer in this recipe. I like dark, but milk chocolate also works!
  • Cereal -If you're having a hard time getting your hands on Organic Traditions Cereal you can use puffed quinoa or even puffed rice! It won't have the exact same texture or nutritional value, but it will still be delicious!
