Make these easy and delicious but healthy peanut butter cups that have been sweetened with nature's candy, dates! Once you make these, you'll never want store-bought PB cups again!

Not only do dates add a natural sweetness to the PB cups, they add an amazing texture! I would compare it to being very caramel-like in nature. You'll notice it as soon as you bite into one!

– Dates, pitted – Peanut butter – Chocolate of choice for melting – Coconut oil See blog post for quantities.

Ingredient list

These PB cups can easily be made vegan by using a dairy-free chocolate. You could also use sugar-free chocolate or unsweetened chocolate if preferred. Consider using stevia or monk fruit sweetener if opting for an unsweetened option.
