    1. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.
    2. Melt the Earth Balance in a small saucepan over medium heat.
    3. Stir in the peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and coconut sugar and mix well.
    4. Remove the mixture from the heat. Evenly divide the mixture, approximately 2 tablespoons per cup, among the muffin cups.
    5. Combine the baking chocolate and almond milk in another pan. Stir over medium heat until the chocolate has melted.
    6. Spoon the chocolate evenly over the peanut butter mixture.
    7. Top with chopped nuts of choice and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.


  • Store extra peanut butter cups in the fridge for up to 5 days. Leaving them at room temperature will cause them to melt.  
  • You can make this recipe using a mini muffin tin and liners (pictured above). Adjust recipe proportions to accommodate smaller sized tin.  
  • I’ve linked the products/brands I prefer in the ingredients above. All ingredients listed are vegan and gluten free.
