"Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups" ---ALLERGY FRIENDLY NO PEANUT BUTTER!

Oh my gawd!  These are sooooo good! 
I found a vegan recipe from Alicia Silverstone and slightly changed it to be safe for Lily. 
They are ridiculously rich, and didn't last a week in my home.
The next time I make them, I will have to use a mini muffin pan so that they will last longer!

½ cup Earth Balance buttery spread
¾ cup Sunflower butter (I use Trader Joe’s)*
¾ cup graham cracker crumbs (preferably organic with no hydrogenated oils)
¼ cup granulated sweetener (I use stevia)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¼ cup vanilla soy milk ( I use Silk Very Vanilla)

Line 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Stir in sunflower butter, graham cracker crumbs, and sweetener.
Remove from heat.
Divide mixture evenly among muffin cups, about 2 TBSP per cup…gave me only 11 cups.
Combine chocolate and milk in another saucepan over low/medium stirring constantly until melted.
Spoon evenly over the butter mixture in the muffin cups.
Top with chopped nuts of your choice if not allergic to any (almonds, pecans…)*
Chill in the fridge at least 2 hours. 
Keep them in an airtight container in the fridge until you are ready for a treat! 
*If you are not allergic to peanuts, then go ahead and use chopped ones for a topping, along with peanut butter in the recipe instead of sunflower butter.

  2. Oh Yum! I have her cookbook, The Kind Diet. I would love to be able to eat this way. I 'd like to hear more about drinking greens, as you listed on your header. I am about to start doing that. I look forward to getting to know more of your new blog!

  3. Oooh! Let me know how you like her book. I do not have it. I just read an article promoting it with the PB cups recipe. I will post info about the greens soon. In the mean time, check out my webpage www.phporder.gom/gogreen. At the top of the page click on Education. Listen to "The Healing Miracle of Green Foods" CD by David Sandoval. Or check out the articles: "Organic Kamut", "Cellular Detoxification with Barley Grass", and "Fitness Goes Green". Thanks for visiting!
