Nut Free Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups (raw vegan, nut free, paleo, sugar free)
Prep time: 10 minutes | Chill Time: 2 hours | Serving Size: 6 large or 12 small healthy peanut butter cups  


Carob Shell

 Sunflower Seed Filling   Directions
  1. To make the carob shell, whisk the melted coconut oil, carob powder, stevia and vanilla together in a small bowl.
  2. Pour a third of the carob shell mixture into a muffin pan lined with paper or silicone liners and place in the freezer to set.
  3. While the bases for the healthy peanut butter cups are hardening, make the filling by stirring together the sunflower seed butter, nutritional yeast, 1 Tbsp coconut flour, stevia and salt. Depending on the consistency of the sunflower seed butter you are using, add additional coconut flour until the filling becomes a wet dough.
  4. Remove the muffin pan from the freezer and roll the sunflower seed filling into balls. Place a sunflower seed filling ball into each base and flatten it into a smooth disk.
  5. Top with the remaining carob shell mixture and freeze for 2 hours to set.
  6. Store in the freezer in an air tight container and serve cold.
