Heavenly Hemp Butter Cups

recipe Mar 31, 2020

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


  1. Line up 24 paper or silicon mini muffin liners.
  2. Using your small food processor bowl, blend your coconut oil, cocoa and 1/3 cup of coconut nectar until smooth (stopping to scrape down the sides occasionally).
  3. 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.
  4. Place 1/2 tbsp of your chocolate mixture in each muffin cup.
  5. Then layer 2 tsp of nut/seed butter mixture on top of the chocolate layer.
  6. Place another 1/2 tbsp of the chocolate mixture on top of the nut/seed layer.
  7. Sprinkle with a layer of hemp hearts
  8. Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
  9. Enjoy and store out of the freezer or fridge.
