  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 8 ounces dark chocolate chopped {vegan if desired}
  • Sea Salt optional


  • Combine peanut butter, powdered sugar, and ground flax seed in a bowl.
  • Place chopped chocolate {or chocolate chips} in a microwave safe bowl. Heat chocolate in microwave for one minute and stir. Continue heating/stirring in 1 minute increments until chocolate is melted. Allow to cool before using.
  • While chocolate is cooling, shape peanut butter mixture in to balls. You will have approximately 18 1-inch balls. Place them on a tray lined with parchment paper, and place tray in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  • When chocolate has cooled, remove peanut butter balls from the refrigerator. Dip them in chocolate mixture until thoroughly coated and place on parchment lined tray.
  • Sprinkle sea salt on top, if desired, and place tray in refrigerator to cool for at least 20 minutes. Your healthy peanut butter cups are now ready to eat. Store them in the refrigerator or freezer as desired.
