I hardly ever make even “healthy” desserts because I know myself and I know my small amount of self control that I have. If I make a dessert I have a hard time not eating the whole thing. Because of this, lately I just stay away. These peanut butter cups are no different. They are TOO AMAZING. I might have to hide the rest of them. I’m sitting here staring at 7 of them (cause I definitely ate 2) wanting them to disappear so I don’t eat them.
These are gluten-free and if you use dairy-free chocolate they are dairy-free. They are not Paleo. Sadly peanuts are a legume and not a nut, but if you soak your peanuts for 24 hours and then dehydrate before roasting to make peanut butter, you may tolerate them even if you don’t usually do well with legumes.
