Raw Vegan Nut Butter Cups

Okay, here's the motherload. Literally, these things should have some sort of warning label on them. They're that addictive! I think this is the perfect introductory recipe into making your own healthy chocolate, seeing as you only need one common kitchen pan for this: a mini cupcake tin! 


Please don't be a dumbass like me and forget your cupcake liners. I mean, it can be done, but it requires a lot of flinging your body around your kitchen, thumping the tin, crying over broken cups, etc. Just take the easy road and save yourself with the liners. 


Raw Vegan Nut Butter Cups


For the chocolate:

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3-4 tbsp cacao powder or cocoa powder

For the filling:

  • 2 tbsp nut butter of your choice
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Line a mini cupcake tin with dye-free liners
  2. In a small bowl, mix the melted coconut oil, cocoa powder, and maple syrup and mix until thoroughly combined
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the nut butter, melted coconut oil, maple syrup and sea salt until thoroughly combined.
  4. Begin pouring a small amount of your chocolate in the bottoms of each cupcake tin.
  5. Dollap a small spoonful of the nut butter mixture in each cupcake tin.
  6. Cover each cupcake tin with the remaining chocolate mixture. 
  7. Freeze for 30 minutes and enjoy!
  8. keep stored in the fridge!
