4 tablespoons nut butter

3 tablespoons coconut oil

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Topping: 

6 tablespoons coconut oil

In small a silicone muffin liner (or a lined muffin tin), place a heaping teaspoon of the mixture and press down evenly. Repeat for the rest of the mixture
