115g oat flour
60g date syrup
60g peanut butter
1/4 tsp sea salt
150g vegan cream cheese
80g peanut butter
140ml pomegranate juice
85g dark chocolate
1 tsp coconut oil
Add all base ingredients to a bowl and use your hands to mix together until combined and a cookie dough consistency forms.
Divide the cookie dough between 8 cupcakes cases and use your fingers to press the dough into the cases.
Add all centre ingredients to a bowl and whisk with a fork until completely smooth.
Pour the centre mixture between the 8 cases and place in the freezer while you melt the chocolate.
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together over the stove on a low heat, then pour this over the top of each cupcake case.
Sprinkle over dried rose petals for decoration (or flakes almonds / dried raspberries etc) and freeze for 20 mins before serving.
Keep in the freezer but defrost for 15 mins before serving.
I used Pomegreat (100% pure pomegranate juice) for a pop of colour, natural sweetness and a boost of potassium in each treat.
