These Are NOT Your Easter Bunny’s Peanut Butter Cups

Whether it’s Reese’s Egg season or not, chocolate and peanut butter always satisfy our most monstrous cravings. Unfortunately, the sweet and salty PB cups come at a high price: A two-pack costs you 220 calories and 22 grams of sugar from ingredients like milk fat, sugar, dextrose (which is also sugar), emulsifiers, and couple of preservatives. Not exactly squeaky clean.

But don’t worry, there is a better way! Leave those orange-packaged cups in the supermarket checkout shelf and whip up these guilt-free chocolate peanut butter cups, instead. Made with cacao powder, coconut oil, and high-protein peanut butter—and sweetened with maple syrup— these PB cups are as feel-good as they are delicious. And did we mention they’re surprisingly easy to make? Check ’em out.
