On a Paleo diet but miss sweet treats like peanut butter cups? Here’s a delicious, easy recipe for Paleo Peanut Butter Cups that’s so easy to make.
My poor husband. He’s on a Paleo diet to help manage his spondylitis and rheumatoid arthritis. He misses snacks and candy, like his beloved Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Peanuts are out for him because they’re technically legumes – beans and legumes have too much starch for him so he has to avoid them. So this recipe is gluten-free, Paleo and peanut-free.
Enjoy These Peanut Butter Cups Even On A Paleo Diet
Sometimes I’ll find soy or gluten in conventional chocolate chips, so I opt for these soy-free, dairy-free chocolate chips instead. I use either almond butter or sunflower seed butter in place of peanut butter.
It’s so easy to make and my whole family loves it.

- Combine all ingredients except the chocolate chips in a medium-sized bowl and stir until well mixed. You can use an electric mixer or mix by hand.
- Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler until it turns into a thick liquid.
- Fill each cupcake liner with 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate. Put the muffin pan in the freezer and let sit for about 5 minutes to allow the chocolate to solidify.
- Fill the middle with 1 tablespoon of the sunflower seed butter mixture.
- Use the remaining melted chocolate to top off all cupcake liners.
- Store in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes to let it solidify.
- When ready to serve, take out of the refrigerator and remove the cupcake liner. You’ll have that gorgeous indentation mark.
- Keep in the refrigerator or freezer when not serving since the chocolate may melt again – especially if it’s hot.
