Guilt-Free Superfood Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

It can be hard to satisfy your sweet tooth while still trying to avoid refined sugars that are terrible for your health. Most sweets out there become addictive because they send our bodies on the blood sugar roller coaster, resulting in craving even more sugar. I know I’m not the only one out there with a huge sweet tooth.

So, I have developed this Superfood Peanut Butter Cup recipe that is completely guilt free. The recipe contains cacao which is the purest form of chocolate. It is considered a superfood because it has many health benefits, including being rich in antioxidants and iron. The cups are vegan, gluten free, and so addictive!
