What You'll Need

Makes 10 no-bake peanut butter cups:

  • 5 Medjool dates, pits removed (110 gr)
  • 1/2 Cup of Shredded Coconut (40 gr)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter( 30 gr)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup (30 gr)
  • A Third of a block of Dark Chocolate ( 35 gr)
  • 2 and 1/2 Tablespoons of Almond Butter ( 37 gr)
  • Optional: Peanuts and Sea Salt to decorate



1.Place Medjool dates pits removed, into a food processor along with shredded coconut. Blend until mixture easily sticks together when pinched between two fingers.

2. Divide into 10 even balls, ( you can use a scale if you want to be 100% accurate)

3. Press each ball into the mini muffin tray holes. I use a silicone muffin tray just because they’re so flexible and easy to remove and clean afterwards.

4. Press mixture into hole, forming an even base with an even crust around it.
