Healthy Peanut Butter Cups


Healthy Peanut Butter Cups
It is Secret Recipe Club Time!!  I had to take off last month because of moving but  am back at it again.  Before we get started I wanted to announce the winners from my International Delight Giveaway.

Winner 1 – Kesha
Winner 2 – Amy
Check your email ladies, so I can send you your prize.

For Secret Recipe Club this month I was assigned Quick and Easy, Cheap and Healthy.  This site is full of so many great and healthy recipes, as well as shopping deals, coupon links, menu planning, and much more.  She was actually assigned my blog one of the first months that I participated in SRC!  Check out her take on my Cinnamon Roll Muffins.  I had a couple recipes picked out including this Pizza, but as usual my sweet tooth won out.

The original recipe is made with Sunbutter, due to allergies.  Fortunately, we do not have allergies here, so I just used peanut butter.  These are a fun treat to have in the fridge or freezer.  They melt quickly, so I kept them in the fridge.  I currently have a few in the freezer to pull out in a chocolate emergency :)

Yields 12

Peanut Butter and Chocolate are a classic combination. You can eat this little cup, and not feel guilty! With heart healthy coconut oil, and the protein packed peanut butter, you actually have a good for you treat!

Save Recipe


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  1. Prepare 24 tin mini-muffin pan with liners.
  2. Gently melt the coconut oil. You don't want it warm, just in liquid form. Stir everything together until very smooth. You can use a blender or food processor if you want. I just used a bowl and a whisk. Pour into mini muffin liners. Let harden completely in fridge before serving, approximately 30 minutes. Store in air tight container in the fridge.

  1. I dont know how they are possibly healthy – they look gorgeous and so yummy!!

  2. Um…YUM! Chocolate and PB is seriously one of the best flavor combos EVER!

  3. Hi Erin! This is so funny. I had your blog for SRC…and I made…PEANUT BUTTER CUPS…also with coconut oil. What a great coincidence.

    These look fantastic!

    It was so much fun to cook from your blog. You have quite a stockpile of recipes and such pretty photographs!


  4. Oh my gosh do these look amazing! I have to make some right now!!! Yum!!

  5. These would not last long at my house! Yum!

  6. They look great! A lot of us had peanut butter on the brain this month :)

  7. Healthy and delicious!! It would mess with my head and I would eat the whole batch because I would just keep saying… “just one more…”. :)

  8. Erin, those look delicious and so easy! Much better than preservative-filled Reese’s cups.

  9. Not only do these look delicious -they sound very fun to make! Another great recipe, thanks Erin:-)

  10. I want these in the freezer for an emergency! Yum!

  11. I had Anne’s blog back in February and chose the same recipe but changed them up also using peanut butter but also making them crunchy with nuts and Rice Krispies.

    If you haven’t already, I’d love for you to check out my SRC entry: Chicken Satay Noodle Salad.

  12. Great idea here and so easy, I love it Erin.

  13. My sweet tooth would win too. I love that there is coconut oil and honey in this recipe. Nice find!

  14. yes please…these look like a great little thing to put in my chocolate stash…right behind the fruit where no one ever looks!

  15. Looks amazing! Healthy too. Cannot be beat. I’ll be making these ASAP. Thanks Erin!


  16. These look fantastic and so fun to make them at home versus buying from the store! I too enjoy SRC – I still need to pick my selection for group C reveal in a couple weeks. Pinning now!

  17. I would love to have these in stock in my freezer for those frequent chocolate/peanut butter cravings. Good excuse to make a big batch!

  18. I’d make them but I’d probably attempt to eat all of them before they reached the fridge!

  19. So glad you enjoyed these! I haven’t made them in a while; I really need to :)

  20. If these are any bit of healthy…I’ll take 20! Thanks for the recipe.

  21. Ha ha, glad I am not the only one who gets “chocolate emergencies”! These look fabulous!

  22. These look so tempting! And I love to use coconut oil as well! Any tips on getting involved with the Secret Recipe Club? I have signed up several times and have more than the necessary amount of recipes on my blog. Do they email you once you have been “accepted”? Thanks!

    • I know they are full – I think there is a waiting list. I assume they will email you once you are accepted. I believe aside from having enough recipes, there is no other criteria to get in – just space :)

  23. deliciously brilliant & lightened up… thank you!

  24. Sweet tooth always wins out for me, too. And these do look perfect for that chocolate emergency!

  25. YUMMY! These sound so amazingly good

  26. Seriously this is outstanding. I would eat a ton of these. Which I guess defeats the purpose of healthy. Meh!

  27. i think these won’t last long enough around to get all pretty like yours.

  28. How did I miss these?! They look and sound awesome. And of course I LOVE the ingredients! I’m always super enthusiastic when people post healthier versions of naughty desserts. Good job, you! :)

  29. Oh these would be such a hit at my house! Thank you for sharing. You just can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate!

  30. Oh man I want to make these tonight!! I love chocolate and peanut butter!!

  31. These are a hit at our house. I also made a batch with toasted coconut added! Yummy!!!
