Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. – Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Posted by

Yep, that’s right. Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. by Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky, is finally here and it is better than I could have ever imagined!

Disclaimer: I won’t be giving too much away since I encourage everyone to go buy this book. Trust me, it’s worth it.

The first recipe that I decided to try was the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups because I love the idea of trying a healthier version of my favorite candy. Plus, I love a good excuse to buy new kitchen supplies so I immediately went on Amazon to order a mini muffin pan with mini muffin liners!

First, the chocolate. The recipes calls for unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut oil and maple syrup so you can feel a little bit better snacking on these.

Then, the peanut butter layer and the last chocolate layer!

Overall these are quick and easy – definitely recommend trying! Here are a few of my personal takeaways after trying this recipe:

  • Close the lid on your cocoa powder when you’re done with it so you don’t accidentally knock it over and spill it all over your kitchen. Oops.
  • You could potentially cut back on the coconut oil as they came out a bit oily.
  • Minimize time spent outside of the freezer if you are not going to eat them right away – they melt pretty quickly.
  • Practice self control.
