You should never have to eat a regular toxic Reese’s peanut butter cup as they are filled with hydrogenated oils and too much sugar and artificial ingredients! Just read for yourself:
I mean what are those ingredients??? CHEMICALS. Please stop putting this junk in your body! These ingredients are toxic, addicting, and confusing to our bodies as they are not meant to process these ingredients. This is not an example of real food.
INSTEAD you can make this recipe, which is super easy, delicious, AND GUILT FREE! You can also use as little maple syrup as you want to make it even cleaner and lower in sugar. The point is, pure 100% organic maple syrup is so much better for you than sugar and corn syrup – YUCK.
- 1 heaping cup melted peanut butter OR almond butter
- 1/4 cup pure 100% maple syrup
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup cocoa (or cacao – unsweetened)
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, optional
Melt peanut/almond butter in small pot over lot heat. Then pour into small glass baking dish, lined with parchment paper, and place in freezer to set for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil, vanilla, cocoa, maple syrup together on low heat in same pot. Then add shredded coconut, stir well. Pour this mixture onto the “set” peanut/almond butter that was in the freezer and place it back in the freezer for 45 minutes before serving/cutting. Store in fridge.
