One of the most beloved kid's treats is peanut butter cups. With the ban on peanuts in schools, an entire generation of kids are missing out on this extraordinary comfort food. Isn't it great to know that Hemp Hearts can come to the rescue?
- 1 cup coconut oil, warmed
- 1/2 cup natural cocoa
- 1/3 cup coconut nectar
- 1/3 cup pumpkin purée
- 1/3 cup nut or seed butter (of choice)
- 1/3 cup pitted dates
- 1/3 cup Hemp Hearts
- 1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt
- Line up 24 paper or silicon mini muffin liners.

- Using a large food processor bowl, blend your pumpkin purée, nut or seed butter, dates, salt and 2 tbsp sweetener until smooth. If you experience the batter being too thick, add 1 tbsp of warm water and continue blending.

- Place another 1/2 tbsp of the chocolate mixture on top of the nut/seed layer.
