WHAT TO MAKE WITH CHOCOLATE AND OATS?

You are on the right page as the main ingredients for this recipe are dark chocolate and oats!

These No-Bake Chocolate and Oats cups are made with only 5 ingredients:

oat flour 

agave syrup

-plant milk

-dark chocolate

peanut butter.

I usually use @bulkpowder’s big tubs of smooth peanut butter, as it lasts much longer than a small tub and you get a huge quantity for a good price.

HOW TO TURN OATS INTO OAT FLOUR?

To turn oats into oat flour, simply blend them in a high-speed blender or food processor until the oats turn into flour. You can also purchase oat flour online or in-store if you don’t have a blender. 

If you are thinking of investing in a blender that is not too expensive, this Nutribullet blender is, from my experience, one of the best small blenders you can get for an affordable price.

CHOCOLATE CUPS WITH SILICONE MUFFIN PAN

I use a silicone muffin pan to make my No-Bake Chocolate and Oats Cups. It is SO convenient as a silicone pan is non-stick and easy to clean. This is the one I use if you would like to check it out.chocolate

As an alternative, you can use paper muffin cups to make these Chocolate and Oats Cups.

Another delicious recipe you can make with this silicone pan is this Chocolate Chips Muffins (oil-free | vegan) recipe.

WHAT TO MAKE WITH NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE AND OATS CUPS?

These Chocolate Cups are delicious to have by themselves as they are naturally chewy and perfectly sweet. However, they can also be eaten with ice cream or fruits on the side! I also love to have these No-Bake chocolate and Oats Cups with a cup of tea or coffee as an afternoon snack.

HOW LONG CAN CHOCOLATE CUPS LAST?

Store these Chocolate and Oats Cups in the fridge for up to 7 days. Don’t store them at room temperature as the chocolate would be subject to melt.

CAN YOU FREEZE CHOCOLATE AND OATS CUPS?

You sure can. Store these No-Bake Cups in a container(does not have to be airtight) for up to 4 months in the freezer.

    First of all, I found this cake’s pic very attractive so I read the recipe and I found it both easy and interesting as far as the ingredients are concerned. I wasn’t disappointed at all when making it because all was okay and quick liked the recipe describes it. I also had a look at the video which is an excellent way to learn. I couldn’t wait to try one after finishing the different steps, and YES I liked these lovely little oat and chocolate cups :)! And you know what? I loved it more the day after!! Because it is energetic and I wasn’t so hungry I first cut a half but I also appreciated the second half a few minutes later! These cakes are really healthy and delicious!

    I made these with ingredients I had sitting around at home: rolled oats instead of oat flour (don’t have a food processor), almond butter instead of peanut butter, and maple syrup instead of agave syrup. They were nice and chewy (I love chewy textures) and I’m definitely gonna make these again (I also love quick and easy recipes ?)
