Peanut butter, coconut, chocolate= 3 of my favorite things. Looking for a dessert to please anyone with a taste that far surpasses many other raw treats? This is it! You can make them in bars or cups, whatever works for you and switch up the sweets on top. My personal favorite is the mini cups, I just purchased a mini silicone muffin mold and raw treats so I can pop them out easily and its just the right amount of dessert. I made these bars for my Healthandus turns 2 picnic party, made the cups for a summer solstice party and a friends graduation- they were a hit for all 3. Next time i am going to double the batch just to keep some of these delicious cups on hand.
1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
3/4 cup raw oats
1/4 cup maple syrup ( I use 1/2 agave and 1/2 maple syrup)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/8 cup melted coconut oil
2 melted dark chocolate bars
In a food processor, combine all “Cups” ingredients and pulse until blended together. Press into pan mold or mini cupcake cups and refrigerate for 15 minutes. In a sauce pan melt dark chocolate and pour a thin layer on the cups. Top with sweet or nut of choice, coconut, goji berry, almond etc.
They can store up to a week in the fridge- if you are lucky to have them around until then.
GO MAKE THESE, TONIGHT.
