Ingredients you’ll need for Healthy Chickpea Peanut Butter Cups

398 ml can of chickpeas: these will blend into the peanut butter portion of the cups. I promise you won’t even know they’re there.

 

Peanut butter: because they couldn’t be peanut butter cups without it!

 

Honey: this is our sweetener and adds a touch of sweetness to the cups. You can swap this for maple syrup or another sweetener.

 

Dark chocolate chips: I like using chocolate chips when melting chocolate for a faster and more even melt.

Evenly distribute the chickpea mixture among a 12-cup muffin tin. Press the mixture into the bottom of each cup.

Melt chocolate chips using a bowl over a pot of boiling water. I recommend this method because it prevents you from burning the chocolate as it melts.

Refrigerate the muffin tin until chocolate has hardened, then store peanut butter cups in an airtight container in the fridge. Enjoy within four days.

 

Enjoy! 💚
