Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (plant-based, no sugar, oil-free, no dates)

These chocolate peanut butter cups, also known as peanut butter cups, are not only sugar-free, vegan, oil-free, plant-based and don’t contain dates or dried fruit.
I also provide options to make these candies peanut-free.
My husband says they taste like frozen Reese’s peanut butter cups.
For the vegan chocolate filling ingredients:
- 3 large ripe bananas
- 3 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract, optional
- 3 teaspoons tahini, almond butter, cashew butter or peanut butter (salt & oil-free)
- 3 level tablespoons cocoa powder
For the toppings:
- chopped walnuts, toasted peanut halves or toasted chopped pecans
- peanut butter, almond butter, tahini or cashew butter (unsalted & oil-free)
- toasted coconut flakes, unsweetened, sulfur-free (optional)
Directions: Peel and break bananas into 1-inch pieces and blend in a small food processor until it resembles pudding. Add remaining ingredients to the food processor, mixing for about 1-minute; the mixture should now look like melted chocolate.
Add 3 pieces of chopped walnuts, 3 toasted peanut halves or 4-5 pieces toasted pecans to each mold. Pour chocolate filling into silicon candy molds.
Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter, almond butter, tahini or cashew butter on top, in the middle (the more, the better it tastes). Drizzle more chocolate on top to cover (optional).
For the tahini filled chocolates, I drizzled about ½ teaspoon tahini on the top of each chocolate cup. Sprinkle with coconut flakes on top, if desired.
It takes 3-5 hours to freeze through.
Below are the silicone candy molds I use:
