I’ve been craving chocolate lately and I don’t know why.  I’ve never had a huge sweet tooth and I’ve definitely never been a huge fan of chocolate, but these Chocolate Sunflower Butter Cups are doing something to me! They are not too chocolatey and I love the taste of it with the sunflower seed butter.  Of course you can make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups or Chocolate Almond Butter Cups, but I’m team Sunflower Seed Butter.  Not many people have tried sunflower seed butter and I think you’d be surprised by how good it tastes.

A great thing about this recipe is that you have a ton of creative freedom.  You can stuff these with bananas, jam, date puree, vegan ice cream, pretty much anything you can think of.  It’s also an easy recipe for people like me who are not the best at making desserts or if you want to make something easy with your children.

What filling would you use in this dessert?!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: About 8 Chocolate Cups
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted not solid
  • ⅛ cup 100% pure cocoa powder, or more if you like more chocolae flavor
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup sunflower butter
  • about 8 paper muffin liners
Instructions
  1. Place the paper liners on a plate or baking sheet. In a bowl, mix the coconut oil, cocoa powder, agave, and salt together.
  2. Drizzle about a tablespoon of the chocolate sauce into the paper liners to coat the bottom. Place the liners in the refrigerator to allow the chocolate to harden, about 10 – 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the liners from the fridge. Quickly spread about a tablespoon of the sunflower butter over the hardened chocolate.
  4. Next, Drizzle more chocolate sauce over the sunflower butter making sure the sunflower butter is completely covered. Try to move quickly so the chocolat on the bottom does not melt.
  5. Place the Chocolate Sunflower Butter Cups back in the fridge to allow the chocolate on the top to harden. Once hardened you can enjoy them! Keep them refrigerated when you're not eating them, otherwise the chocolate will melt.
Notes
You can use peanut butter or almond butter if you do not like sunflower butter.
Also, you can melt vegan chocolate chips and use that as the chocolate sauce if you don't feel like making this chocolate sauce. It might not be as healthy because many vegan chocolate chips have a ton of unhealthy processed ingredients, but it will taste good.
You can fill these chocolate cups with anything! I filled some with bananas and some with date caramel (dates blended with a litter water or cashew milk until thick and gooey).

    I should start an ” I Suck at Cooking in General” series hahahaha.
    I’ve never tried sunflower seed butter before, but I could imagine how it would taste and I’m super intrigued now. This definitely sounds like the kind of thing that I could sink my teeth in to. Yum!

    Love the photography. You can never go wrong with chocolate & peanut butter, but my favorite pairing is probably caramel.

    The agave nectar and the sunflower makes me curious about. I literally just finished baking cookies and this might be the next recipe for me to try on. I just need to check the availability of the ingredients first.

    I love that you use sunflower seed butter here! I am super allergic to peanut butter, so I’m all about those alternatives. I also love to use almond butter from time to time.
