These vegan chocolate hazelnut butter cups are an absolute dream. Easy to make and rich in antioxidants, with a hazelnut butter and maple filling, you’ll fall head over heels for these treats.


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped dark chocolate or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut butter
  • 3 tbsp oat flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt


  1. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat.
  2. Line a standard muffin tin with 8 paper liners. Alternatively, line a mini muffin tin with 16 mini paper liners.
  3. Stir together the hazelnut butter, oat flour, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt in a bowl. Roll this mixture into 8 equal balls (or 16, if using mini cups) and set on a plate.
  4. Add 2 teaspoons (10 mL) of melted chocolate to the bottom of each muffin cup (or 1 teaspoon if using small cups). Lightly flatten each hazelnut butter ball into a disc that fits the muffin cup and place on top of the melted chocolate already in the muffin cup.
  5. Add 1 tbsp of melted chocolate on top of each hazelnut butter circle (or 1/2 tbsp if using mini cups).
  6. Transfer the pan into the freezer and freeze the chocolate hazelnut butter cups until firm, at least 2 hours.
  7. Transfer into an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to eat.


Use any nut or seed butter you like if you don’t have hazelnut butter.
