Homemade Peanut Butter Cups (With Keto Option!)

Homemade peanut butter cups made with only a few simple ingredients! These naturally sweetened treats can easily be made keto for a low-carb dessert recipe.

If you read my Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies or my Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars post, you know my family is BANANAS over peanut butter. And chocolate. Specifically the combination thereof.

For our last family gathering, I made these homemade peanut butter cups, and the crowd went wild! It wouldn’t be the Mueller way unless everyone went crazy over peanut butter and chocolate!

What makes these different from store-bought peanut butter cups?

You have the ultimate control of the type of chocolate and peanut butter that goes into the cups, as well as the type of sweetener. If you enjoy dark chocolate and prefer to keep your treats cane sugar-free, you can absolutely do that here!

Not to mention, these things are a total ball to make! If you like doing cooking or baking projects with children, this is a GREAT one! I also see these as a thoughtful gift for loved ones for any holiday (Valentine’s Day, anyone?!). 

I made my peanut butter cups large using a regular sized muffin tray  and muffin papers, but you can also make tiny peanut butter cups by using a mini muffin pan. I made mine nice and thick, so I ended up with 6 large (and thick) peanut butter cups. You can likely spread this out to 7 or 8 if you don’t want them as thick.

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and are absolute crowd-pleasers!

Alternative title: How to please your family and make a batch of cookies disappear in 1 hour flat.

Made with ghee, coconut sugar, a touch of pure maple syrup, creamy peanut butter, gluten-free all-purpose flour and a chopped up dark chocolate bar, these cookies are melt-in-your mouth DELICIOUS! …And are soooo peanut buttery, chocolatey, and the perfect balance of salty and sweet when you sprinkle them with some coarse sea salt.

It’s all about the sprinkle of coarse sea salt at the end, my friends! Coarse sea salt a true cookie makes.

I made this batch of cookies for a family dinner and not only did the cookies go quickly with enthusiasm, but each of my family members raved while savoring them. Each and every one of them made a comment on how much they loved the salty-sweet combo.

It was like a broken record cookie rave, sponsored by sugar and burritos.

Seriously, my people descended upon these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies like vultures. This is why they’re my people.

So let’s bake them, already!
