  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple or agave syrup
  • 3 tbsp almond flour
  • 100-150 grams dark chocolate (3.5-5.3oz)


  1. In a small bowl add peanut butter and syrup and mix well. Then add almond flour and mix again. Depending on the consistency of your peanut butter you mightneed a add a little less or a little more almond flour. The mixture should have the consistency of cookies dough.

  2. Set the peanut butter mixture in the fridge while you melt the chocolate.

  3. Melt the chocolate. Add 1-2 tsp of melted chocolate to the bottom of some silicone muffin tins. Using the back of a teaspoon "paint" the sides of the muffin tins with the melted chocolate (I "painted" about halfway up the sides).

  4. Set the muffins tins in the fridge for approx. 5 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.

  5. Split the peanut butter mixture into 6 balls and shape each ball into a flat round shapes which fits in the muffin tins.

  6. Lay the flat peanut butter balls on top of the chocolate covered muffin bottoms. Then add 1-2 tsp of melted chocolate on top so that it covers the peanut butter mixture.

  7. Set the cups in the fridge for the chocolate to harden. When the chocolate has hardened then remove the cups from the tins and enjoy!

  8. Store the peanut butter cups in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

I used 70% dark chocolate. I highly suggest using 70% or lower for the best and most delicious result 😉 

You can of course also use a vegan milk chocolate instead which I’m sure will be super delicious too. 

If your peanut butter doesn’t contain any salt I highly suggest adding a pinch or two to the peanut butter filling.

Are dark chocolate (chips) vegan? This is a question that I’m asked quite often, and thankfully the answer to that is YES! Cacao (which chocolate is made of) itself is vegan. While milk is sometimes added (so do look at the ingredients), there are many brands of dark chocolate that are vegan and vegan chocolate even vegan milk chocolate is becoming much easier to find 🍫
