Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Cups

I don't post very many sweets. I just don't have a sweet tooth but I do love some chocolate. I've seen several variations of this type of dessert online and decided to make a healthy version. I hope you'll enjoy the recipe and give these a try!

  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (the only ingredient should be peanuts)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons prune puree

Heat the peanut butter and syrup in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir until mixed well and it's warm.

Add the oats to the peanut butter mixture and stir well.

Using a 1/4 cup measure portion the mixture into a silicone 12-cup muffin pan. 

Use a spoon or your fingers to press the mixture firmly into each cup.

Rinse out your pan, dry well and add the chocolate and prune puree. Stir well until chocolate is all melted. Do this over a low heat so you don't scorch the chocolate. Pour a tablespoon of chocolate over each cup to cover the oatmeal mixture. 

Place in freezer for at least one hour.

Pop out however many cups you want to serve. Keep leftovers in the freezer.
