No-Bake Healthy Reese’s Bites

I crave chocolate and peanut butter ALL THE TIME. Just ask my dad – he’s the one who got me hooked on the combination years ago.

The thing is though, I hate how bad a Reeses’s Peanut Butter cup is for you. So, I adapted this recipe from Runner’s World to my needs. It has all the chocolatey goodness and creamy peanut butter you could ever want but in a healthier way.

I eat these right out of the freezer and I’m sure you will too!

  • Print

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (the best you can find)
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract (see my homemade recipe here)
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt

Directions

  1. Line a mini muffin pan with 12 mini paper muffin cups.
  2. To make the chocolate: In a small bowl, microwave 1/3 cup coconut oil for 30 seconds, or just until melted. Stir in the cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons maple syrup. Place 1 teaspoon of the chocolate in each muffin cup to fill the bottom. Place the muffin tin in the freezer until the chocolate solidifies, about 5 minutes.
  3. To make the peanut butter filling: In a small bowl, microwave 2 tablespoons coconut oil for 30 seconds, or just until melted. Use a fork to stir in the peanut butter, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Spoon about a tablespoon of peanut butter filling on top of the chocolate. Then spoon another 1-2 teaspoons of chocolate on top of the peanut butter filling to fill the cups. Place peanut butter cups in the freezer until solid, about 30 minutes.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes prior to serving. Enjoy!
