Honestly Healthy's Peanut Butter Cups

Makes 6

I N G R E D I E N T S 

100g (3½oz/½ cup) raw cacao butter
4 tbsp agave syrup
75g (3oz/¾ cup) raw cacao powder
150g (5oz/1 cup) unsalted peanuts
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp nutritional yeast flakes

M E T H O D

Place the cacao butter and agave syrup in a Vitamix or high-speed blender and blend on high speed until liquid, then add the cacao powder and blend again to combine. Transfer to a  bowl, then coat the bottom and sides of 6 mini paper muffin liners with the chocolate, reserving enough to make a lid for each one. Place in the freezer for 4 minutes to set.

Meanwhile, wash and dry the blender jug and whizz the remaining ingredients to form a smooth butter. Divide the peanut butter between the chocolate cups and pour a layer of chocolate over the top. Return to the freezer for 5–10 minutes to set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
