The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook

Recipe:

Bottom Layer
2 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey

Top Layer
2 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey

Make bottom layer:
1. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix until very smooth.
2. Set 10 mini baking cups in a mini muffin pan. Pour about one tablespoon of the bottom-layer mixture into each baking cup without dribbling it down the inside of the paper. Place on a flat surface in the freezer.

Make the top layer:
1. Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and mix until evenly incorporated. Remove the pan from the freezer and fill each baking cup to the top with the top-layer chocolate mixture.
2. Put the tray back in the freezer and let chill until the chocolate layer has hardened, about 15 mins. Store the peanut butter cups in the freezer for up to 4 months.
