A Healthy Reese? WHAAAA????

Are you a sucker for a Reese Peanut Butter Cup?  I am!  I eat the outside first, saving the savory Peanut Butter center for last!  YUMMMM!  

So what's the problem?  A Reece is full of unhealthy fats, sugar, preservatives, and a whole list of ingredients that I can't pronounce.  Not good.

The solution?  I whipped up a recipe makeover for the Peanut Butter Inside of a Reese without the annoying Choc Outside, excessive calories, and all of that other BAD stuff!

What You'll Need:

  • 3 Cups Peanuts, Unsalted
  • 4 tsp Maple Syrup or Honey
  • 1/4 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
  • Choc Chips (optional) 

Prepare:

  • Make Peanut Butter in a Vitamix or other high speed blender.  For Vitamix, simply put in 3 cups of Peanut Butter in Vitamix.  Start on Speed 1 and increase to High.  Use the tamper to push nuts into the blade.  After a minute or so the peanuts should be ground into Peanut Butter.  
  • Measure out 4 oz of the Peanut Butter.  Place the remaining Peanut Butter in an air tight container and store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. 
  • Combine 4 oz Peanut Butter, maple syrup, and salt.  Stir until it becomes somewhat pasty. 
  • Roll the mixture into 20 small balls. 
  • (If desired) Press 1 Choc Chip into the center of each ball.
  • Place in fridge or freezer to harden.   
  • Store in fridge or freezer.
