ingredients

COOKIE CUPS:

  • 1 .5cups / Flour, gluten free
  • 1/2tsp / Salt
  • 1/2tsp / Baking soda
  • 1/2cup / Vegan butter, unsalted and softened
  • 3/4cup / Coconut sugar
  • 1 / Flax egg
  • 1tsp / Vanilla extract
  • 1cup / Dark chocolate chips

PB CARAMEL FILLING:

CHOCOLATE TOPPING:

  • 150g / Vegan chocolate chips, melted
  • 15g / Coconut oil

steps

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C.
 
Have two mini muffin pans ready.
 
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda.
 
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar until light and creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
 
Beat in the flax egg and vanilla.
 
Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
 
Stir in the chocolate chips.
 
Roll the dough into 1-inch balls (roughly 1 tablespoon each) and add to each tin in the muffin pan.
 
Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies fill the cup, done in the middle, and are golden brown.
 
Immediately using a round teaspoon (or something similar), press down into the center of each cookie cup, making an indentation deep enough to fill later.
 
Cool completely before removing from the pans.
 
For the PB caramel filling, mix peanut butter with a small amount of water until a thick paste is formed.
 
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
 
If mixture is a little runny add more peanut butter!
 
Spoon the PB caramel mixture into the cooled cookie cups.
 
For the chocolate tops, melt chocolate in a heat proof bowl and mix in coconut oil.
 
Pour over the top and refridgerate for a few hours to set.
 
Big yums!
