May 24, 2017 | Sweet Things | 0 comments

Peanut butter, banana and chocolate is a match made in heaven. Another quick treat recipe that I cannot get enough of. The sea salt gives the buttercups extra delicious twist.


Makes 6

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (ie almond butter)
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup raw cacao powder


  1. Melt nut butters and maple syrup using a Bain Marie method.
  2. Add cacao powder and stir until it is fully dissolved.
  3. Using a blender mix the bananas, sea salt and the melted nut mixture.
  4. Line cupcake of muffin tin with liners and pour the buttercup mixture in.
  5. Leave for a couple of hours in a cool place.
  6. Note that leaving it in the fridge will prevent the buttercups from developing a lovely shiny layer on top.
