Makes: 6 biscuit cups
Prep time: 20 mins
Cool time: 30 mins
- 45g desiccated coconut
- 30g ground almonds
- 30g rolled oats
- 15g coconut oil
- 90g pitted dates
- 100g organic peanut butter
- 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
- 70g dark chocolate
- Soak the pitted dates in a bowl with boiling water for 5 minutes, then pat dry.
- In a food processor, blitz the coconut, ground almonds and rolled oats together to a fine crumble.
- Add the coconut oil and dates, and blitz again until the mixture can be squeezed together in your hands.
- Line a cupcake or muffin tin with 6 cupcake cases, and divide the mixture evenly between the cases.
- Using the back of a spoon or your fingers, carefully push the mixture to the sides of the tin to form the base and sides of the cups, ensuring there are no gaps.
- Place the tin in the fridge for the cups to firm up while you prepare the peanut butter.
- Heat the peanut butter slightly in the microwave or a pan, so that it becomes easier to work with, and then stir in the collagen.
- Pipe or add a dollop of peanut butter into each of the cups, leaving enough space at the top for the chocolate.
- Place the tin back into the fridge until the peanut butter firms up.
- Melt the dark chocolate in short bursts in the microwave, or over a pan of boiling water, and drizzle on top of the peanut butter. Return to the fridge for the chocolate to set.
- Enjoy! Best kept in the fridge!
