4 pitted medjool dates (the brand I buy)

1⁄3 cup of melted coconut oil

3⁄4 cup cacao powder

1⁄2 cup maple syrup or agave nectar


3 tablespoons peanut butter (natural: oil/sugar/salt-free)

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar


1. Combine dates and coconut oil in a small bowl and let soak for 30 minutes.

2. Transfer to blender and add cocoa powder and maple syrup and process until very smooth.

3. In a separate bowl, combine peanut butter, vanilla and 2 tbsp agave and mix well.

4. Place 12 foil muffin cups on a large plate. Fill each cup about a quarter full with the chocolate mixture. Gently spread about 1 teaspoon peanut butter in each cup.

5. Top the cups with the remaining chocolate, covering the peanut butter completely.

6. Chill the cups in the freezer for an hour before serving. Store in the fridge for up to a week.
