PEANUT BUTTER CARAMEL AND TOFFEE CHOCOLATE COOKIE CUPS! PALEO AND VEGAN FRIENDLY A CHOCOLATE CRUST WITH A GOOEY PEANUT BUTTER CARAMEL TOPPING.
Calling all chocolate and peanut butter lovers! If you have ever dipped oreos into peanut butter ( the parent trap was my favorite movie growing up) these will remind you of that. The thing I love about these is they are refined sugar free, dairy free and have nutrients from the almond flour and peanuts. Perfect for Valentines day coming up or just an after dinner treat.
One thing I try to make sure I do when baking is to use ingredients that actually provide nutrition as opposed to making treats that are more of a waste. I stock my pantry with almond and coconut flours, coconut sugar, date syrup, coconut milk, raw nuts and seeds and oil sugar free added nut butters. For chocolate I love dark chocolate with less than 4 grams of sugar per serving or even 100% cacao for certain treats. I highly encourage if you love to bake stock your pantries with healthier ingredients so you get more nutrition from the treats you eat.
For these cookie cups the base is oreo like and the peanut butter toffee caramel came together from the leftover caramel I had from the baked oatmeal recipe I shared last week. I simply add smooth peanut butter and chopped peanuts with chocolate chunks and boy is it delicious. Creamy, crunchy and peanut buttery. Topped with a sprinkle of sea salt you get the chocolatey, peanut buttery and salty goodness we all love in desserts.
