She had me at peanut butter. These homemade raw quinoa peanut butter cups surpass store bought chocolate treats any day. With very few ingredients, they are easy to make and the best part is- no sugar! With the added quinoa, you are getting protein in each bite. They are so good- they melt in your fingers. These quinoa pb cups are essential to have on hand (at all times, in the freezer) for my chocolate obsession and I hope you enjoy these treats as much and as often as I do.
