Banana & Peanut Butter Cups

You’ve spent 45 minutes working hard to define those muscles, so don’t undo all your work with a stop at the vending machine. Grab a cup of green tea and whip up a batch of these babies in under 30 minutes.





  • ¼ cup raw organic cacao powder
  • ½ cup organic coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp raw honey / rice malt syrup / maple syrup / coconut nectar
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp stevia (I use Natvia)
  • 12 banana slices


  1. In a microwave bowl melt the oil until liquid.
  2. Stir in honey (or alternative) and then cacao powder a little at a time.
  3. Chocolate mix should be a little runny.
  4. In 12 silicone mini muffin cases, drop a tablespoon of chocolate mix in to the bottom of each cup. Using a spoon, spread chocolate up the side of each cups, then place the in the freezer for 15 minutes to set.
  5. Meanwhile, mix together the peanut butter and powdered sugar then refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove silicone cases and fill with ½ teaspoon of peanut butter mix, topped with a banana coin.
  7. Top each cup with another teaspoon of chocolate mix and spread evenly to “seal” the cup closed.
  8. Place back in the freezer for 15 minutes until completely set.
  9. Can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Omit banana coins if you want traditional ‘Reeces’ style peanut butter cups and fill with additional peanut mix.
Add a dash of cinnamon to your chocolate mix if to help stabalise your blood sugar levels.
