Servings 12


*Oat Layer*

  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • ½ cup honey
  • cup all-natural creamy peanut butter
  • cup chopped peanuts
  • Optional: 1-2 teaspoons water

*Chocolate Layer*

  • 6 oz. dark chocolate chopped
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil

*Peanut Butter Layer*

  • ½ cup all-natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips


  • Line a metal muffin pan with paper liners or use a silicone muffin pan (no need to line the silicone pan).
  • Start with the oat layer. Mix quick-cooking oats, honey, peanut butter, and chopped peanuts in a bowl until combined. If it’s too dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of water. Press about 2 tablespoons of the oats into the bottom of each muffin cup.
  • For the chocolate layer, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl in 20-second increments until smooth. Pour 2 teaspoons of melted chocolate onto the oat layer in each cup. Swirl the pan to spread the chocolate evenly. Freeze for 5 minutes.
  • Make the peanut butter layer by microwaving peanut butter and coconut oil for 15 seconds. Stir and add 2 teaspoons of the mixture onto the chocolate layer. Swirl again and sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top of each cup.
  • Freeze the muffin tin for 30 minutes to an hour until set.
  • Once firm, remove the oat cups from the muffin pan and store them in a freezer bag in the freezer.


  • You can use chocolate chips instead of chopped chocolate pieces.
  • If you prefer milk chocolate, go ahead and use it.
  • Avoid using rolled oats; they’ll be too tough for this recipe.
  • Let the oat cups set properly before freezing them.
