Easy Macadamia Peanut Butter Cups SCD, Healthy

The holidays are here, and it is easy to feel deprived when you are following a special diet when all the traditional treats are floating around.

These Macadamia Peanut Butter cups are SCD Legal, healthy and delicious. Those seeking healthier treats this holiday season will love these scrumptious, creamy cups with a balance of honey and a pinch of salt.

Each batch makes one dozen and can be easily doubled.

Easy Macadamia Peanut Butter Cups

Directions:

You will need two medium bowls that are microwave safe. Lay out a mini muffin tin with 12 paper liners.

Ingredients:

1/4 Cup of Peanut Butter, no sugar

1/4 Cup of Tahini, unsweetened

1/4 Cup of Coconut Butter (I use this kind – my fav!)

2 Tablespoons of Honey, Divided

Twelve whole raw Macadamia Nuts (I love Nuts.com for these. They are gluten free)

Sea Salt, two pinches

Directions: In the first bowl, add 1/4 cup of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of coconut butter, 1 tablespoon of honey and a pinch of salt. Microwave just ten seconds at a time, stirring until it is smooth and fluid.

In the second bowl, add 1/4 cup of Tahini, 2 tablespoons of coconut butter, 1 tablespoon of honey and a pinch of salt. Microwave just ten seconds at a time again, stirring until it is smooth and fluid.

Using a teaspoon cookie scoop and just judging by eyeing it, divide the peanut butter mixture evenly between 12 mini muffin cup liners. Rap the pan on your countertop to flatten the surface. Then place in the freezer for ten minutes. After ten minutes the bottom layer should be firm. Scoop the Tahini mixture on top of the peanut butter base as you did before. Then, add one whole macadamia but to the top of each cup. Tap gently on the counter just to set the madacamia but in the top. Freeze for ten minutes, then they are ready to eat. Store them in an airtight container in the freezer until ready to serve.

Enjoy!
