A healthy and unique twist on your classic peanut butter cup made with sunflower seed butter and sweetened exclusively with Natural Delights Medjool Dates. No added sugar!
Who doesn’t love a PB cup? I admit that I am a chocolate over candy person, all day, and PB cups are by far my favorite.
When you venture to make your own and look at the core ingredients, you realize that the possibilities are endless! From the nut butters you can use, the chocolate base (I make my own!) & of course, your choice of sweetener.
If you have been following Nutrition By Mia, you know that I love to make my own chocolate with cacao powder and coconut oil. That is exactly what I used for the base of these cups and it could not be easier.
These are sweetened exclusively with MEDJOOL DATES which is my healthy sweetening hack when it comes to desserts.
Unlike refined sugar which is a pure carbohydrate, medjool dates add sweetness but are also an excellent source of fiber and potassium. I used Natural Delights Medjool Dates in this recipe. The pitted variety saves me some in the kitchen and are particularly easy to use when it comes to dessert recipes. If you are an athlete you may be happy to know that Medjool dates have 50% more potassiunm by weight than bananas which helps with muscle fuel and recovery.
