Ingredients

  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¾ cup drippy natural peanut butter recommend roasted, salted peanut butter
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate squares

Instructions

  • Place four squares of parchment paper on a baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine coconut flour and peanut butter until well-combined.
  • Divide mixture between four parchment squares. Using the back of a spoon, flatten out to desired thickness. I did about 1 inch-thick.
  • Place baking sheet in freezer for at least 30 minutes, or until firm.
  • Remove one square of parchment paper at a time from the freezer. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut hearts into batter and place in a parchment-lined container. Repeat with remaining batter, placing parchment paper between layers of hearts in the storage container. Note: the coconut flour and peanut butter mixture softens very quickly at room temperature, which is why I recommend cutting out the hearts in batches.
  • Once all the hearts have been cut out. Place the storage container in the freezer overnight.
  • The next day, melt chocolate in the microwave or using a double boiler (see blog notes for details).
  • Once chocolate has melted, remove hearts from freezer. Dip half of each heart in chocolate and place on a parchment paper-lined baking tray.
  • Once all hearts are dipped, place baking tray in freezer for 15-20 minutes, or until chocolate has hardened. Enjoy immediately, or keep stored in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Notes

Nurtition will vary based on size of hearts.
