STEP 1
Add Almond Meal (1 cup) and Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (1 cup) into a high-speed blender and blend on high until a flour forms.
STEP 2
Dump into a large bowl and break up any clumps with your fingers.
STEP 3
Add the Peanut Butter (4 tablespoon), Coconut Oil (3 tablespoon), Pure Maple Syrup (2 tablespoon), Ground Cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon), Pure Vanilla Extract (1/2 teaspoon), and Fine Sea Salt (1 pinch) into the bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined. The dough should be fairly sticky like cookie dough.
STEP 4
Line a mini (or regular) muffin tin with paper liners or use a silicone muffin holder. Portion the dough into each muffin cup and press down until even and smooth.
STEP 5
To make the chocolate sauce: Whisk together the Coconut Oil (6 tablespoon), Pure Maple Syrup (1/4 cup), Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1/4 cup), Dark Chocolate (2 ounce), and Fine Sea Salt (1/4 teaspoon) until no clumps remain.
STEP 6
Spoon the sauce over top each of the cups, distributing evenly. Garnish cups with sliced almonds if desired.
STEP 7
Place in the freezer in a flat area for 30-45 minutes, until firm. Pop out the cups & enjoy immediately! These are best consumed straight from the freezer.
