Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Chilling time: 10 minutes

Makes 12-15 individual cookies, depending on how generous you are when making them.



*375g cups granola

*150g peanuts-chopped

*3 Tablespoons smooth peanut butter

*3 Tablespoons honey (or more if needed)



*150g smooth peanut butter-melted



*200g dark chocolate-finally chopped

*1 Tablespoon coconut oil



*To make the peanut butter granola cups, take a bowl and combine the granola, chopped peanuts, peanut butter, and honey.  If the mixture is too dry add more honey to get the mixture to hold together.

*Grease a cupcake tin and divide the mixture into 12-15 cups, depending on how big you want them.  Press the mixture down well, so it holds together and then make a dent in the centre of each cup (this is for the peanut butter).  Freeze for 5-10 minutes, until the cups are firm.

*Then, melt the peanut butter and pour it into the centre of each granola cup.  Now, freeze again for another 5-10 minutes, until firm.

*Finally, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil and spoon melted chocolate on top of peanut butter.  Chill until chocolate has set.



These peanut butter granola cups are best served chilled.  They will become soft and sticky at warm temperatures!
