Why You’ll Love This PCOS Friendly Dessert

You may have heard the term “pcos-friendly” before, but what does it mean? Well, to some it may mean low carb, no sugar, no fun and tasteless. But to me, it means a tasty treat that still has some nutritional benefits for the hormonal disorder PCOS. 

These delicious peanut butter chocolate oat cups are a great dessert recipe that doesn’t require any cook time! Easy and tasty? What could be better?!

Ingredients You’ll Need

This PCOS dessert recipe uses simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand. 

To make it, you’ll need:

  • Peanut butter – this classic pantry staple provides ample amounts of healthy fats, antioxidants, and magnesium

  • Maple syrup – this adds some natural sweetness and flavor dimension to the recipe

  • Oats – I used rolled oats and blended them into an oat flour in a high speed blender. You could also use a food processor to blend your oats into a flour, or even purchase a premade oat flour. Oats offer fiber and prebiotics for gut health

  • Dark chocolate chips – need I say more? These are my favorite dark chocolate chips to use in these types of recipes since they have 5 grams of fiber and no added sugar

  • Coconut oil – this is an optional addition but I find it helps the chocolate melt into a creamier mixture

Now let’s talk about how to make this easy recipe!

How To Make Them

This recipe is so simple to make and comes together in a few simple steps. 

First, you’re going to make your oat flour if you’re not using a premade flour option. All you’re going to do is pour the rolled oats into a blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes, frequently stopping to shake the blender up, until you get a fine oat flour mixture. Set aside.

Next, you’re going to combine the peanut butter and maple syrup in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30-60 seconds, checking every 15 seconds or so and stirring, until the peanut butter is completely melted and well combined with the maple syrup. 

Add the mixture to a large bowl and slowly stir in the oat flour mixture. Once it’s combined, you’re going to divide it among 6 muffin tins with liners. Press the mixture down to make it have a flat top. 

Next, microwave chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl for 30-60 seconds, stirring every 10-15 seconds. Pour mixture evenly over each peanut butter cup. 

Place the muffin tin into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to allow time for them to set. Enjoy!

Substitutions & Variations

  • No peanut butter? Substitute any nut or seed butter like almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter
  • Use premade oat flour instead of making your own
  • Use milk chocolate chips or butterscotch instead of dark chocolate chips. Note: this will likely increase the added sugar content
  • Decrease the amount of oat flour to ⅔ cup for more moist peanut butter cups
  • Substitute honey or allulose for maple syrup
