Easy Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cups

Photo by: Crystal Ray

As some of you know, my husband was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I posted a recipe for The Best No-Sugar Black Bean Brownies awhile back, and I wanted an easy sugar-free peanut butter cup recipe too. I don’t have diabetes, but I certainly don’t want to end up with it either. I would rather cut back on sugar now, make better choices and avoid serious health problems. I’ve been improving my diet and stepping up my exercise regimen.

If you’re looking for an easy sugar-free peanut butter cup recipe, this one is phenomenal. Not only is it easy, but it’s also delicious. It’s hard to believe that it doesn’t contain sugar. The sweetness comes from small amounts of honey and Stevia. I must warn you though, they’re highly addictive! Just because a dessert is sugar-free doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have carbohydrates and calories. Sugar-free doesn’t mean that you can have two or three times as much!

Bottom Half Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons organic virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter, creamy or chunky
  • 1/4 cup dark baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 packets Stevia
  • 6 paper muffin tin liners, regular size
  • 6-cup muffin tin

Procedure

Combine all of the ingredients, and stir until smooth and well-blended. Equally spoon the mixture into six paper-lined muffin tins. Even it out as much as possible, and place it in the freezer while preparing the top half.

Top Half Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons organic virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter, creamy or chunky
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 packet Stevia

Procedure

Combine all of the ingredients, and stir until smooth and well-blended. Pour it over the bottom layer of chocolate in equal amounts. Place the sugar-free peanut butter cups back in the freezer, and serve when they solidify. Store them in the freezer for best results. They melt very easily.

Variations for This Easy Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cup Recipe

I used extra-chunky peanut butter to make my easy sugar-free peanut butter cup recipe. It doesn’t matter if the peanut butter is chunky or smooth. It’s a matter of personal preference. My husband happens to prefer the chunky kind. I don’t care either way as long as it’s good.

*Taste the chocolate layer before spooning it into the muffin tin liners. If it isn’t sweet enough, add a half packet of Stevia at a time until achieving the right level of sweetness. You could also experiment with the amount of honey.
