Watch the one minute recipe video to see all instruction steps.
Make the dough by mixing all the ingredients (except for the dark chocolate) with a fork in a mixing bowl.
Knead the dough until it is uniform and comes together, and equally divide the dough in 2.
Use one half of the dough and divide it into the 6 cups of your silicone muffin pan. Press with your fingers to flatten up the dough in the moulds.
Melt half of the dark chocolate (60 g)**** and spread it on top of each cup with the back of a teaspoon. Use about 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate per cup.
Freeze for 10 minutes.
Use the other half of the dough and repeat steps 4, 5 and 6.
Unmold your No-Bake Chocolate and Oats Cups, and enjoy!
Store in the fridge for up to one week, or freeze for up to 4 months.
*This is the silicone muffin pan I use. As an alternative, you can use paper muffin cups to make these Chocolate and Oats Cups.
**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. Make sure you use gluten-free oat flour if you are sensitive to gluten.
***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.
****To melt the dark chocolate, microwave in a cup or small bowl for 1 minute to 1 minute and 30 seconds, or use the bain-marie technique.
