Do you love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups?
I can’t imagine anyone saying “no.”
We’ve got a real treat for all of you Chocolate and Peanut Butter Lovers out there.
A delicious DIY Peanut Butter Candy that gives Reese’s® Peanut Butter Cups a real run for the money.
Healthy Valentine Peanut Butter Cups (sugar free, low carb, gluten free)
- 3 oz Sugar Free Milk Chocolate I used Lily's
Peanut Butter Filling
- 30 g 1/4 cup Peanut Flour
- 25 g 1/4 cup Powdered Erythritol
- 1/16 tsp Salt
- 57 g 1/4 cup Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt (for vegan option substitude with coconut yougurt)
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the melted chocolate into 7 cavities of a peanut butter cup mold or silicone muffin liners.
Rotate the tray or muffin liners to coat the cavity "walls" of the tray/liners with chocolate. Put this is in the refrigerator while you make the filling.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the peanut flour, erythritol and salt. Stir in the yogurt. Mixture should be thick and fudgy like cookie dough.
Fill the chocolate cups with the peanut butter filling. Spoon the rest of the melted chocolate over the PB filling and tap on the tray/liners until the chocolate reaches the edges.
Refrigerate until firm.
This recipe is: no bake, sugar free, low carb, low fat, high fiber, high protein, gluten free!

Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day ♥
