The other day my sister and I saw a recipe for non-vegan white chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cup slices, so we thought, how hard could it be to make a vegan version of that recipe? As a result, we threw around some ideas, created this recipe, and it was an instant hit!
These raw slices are creamy, melt-in-your mouth, and have a delicious silky texture. Cacao butter is the base for this recipe, which is a Mayan super-food, and is packed full of vital nutrients including healthy fats just like coconut oil. Combined with the peanut butter, this recipe is a powerhouse of super-foods and protein. Maple syrup is the only sweetener, making this dessert a delightfully healthy treat.
Total Time: 1+ hours Makes: 12+ bars
1 cup and 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 cup cacao butter
2-3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Vegan peanut butter cups - we used the Justin's Brand
Sea salt to taste (only use if peanut butter is unsalted)
1. Melt cacao butter in a cooking pan on medium heat until completely melted. Stir frequently.
2. In a bowl, mix the melted cacao butter, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and sea salt together until fully combined .
3. Line a baking tray with foil or parchment and pour the mixture into it. Cover and place in fridge for 1 hour or in freezer for 30 minutes. Before the bars solidity, remove from fridge and press the peanut butter cups into top of the slices. You can cut the peanut butter cups or leave them whole.
4. Return to the fridge until the slices become solid, then serve and enjoy!
