Keep scrolling for complete recipe and instructions. We’ll start here with a super quick rundown!

- Fill muffin cups to the top with peanut crust mixture.
- Freeze for 2 hours or overnight.

SPECIAL EQUIPMENT NEEDED:
To make your cheesecake bites you’ll need a silicone mini muffin pan. Pictured below is the one I use and it’s AWESOME. It’s freezer safe and oven safe so you can use it for baked goods, too! It’s also non-stick and dishwasher safe so clean up is easy. The best part? It’s very affordable (and cute)!
STEP BY STEP PHOTOS:
- 8 oz cream cheese *one standard size bar
- ⅓ cup peanut butter powder *see note below
- ¼ cup agave nectar
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 & ½ cups roasted & salted peanuts *crushed
- 2 & ½ tablespoons coconut oil *divided
- ¼ cup dark chocolate chips *see note below
- Measure cream cheese, peanut butter powder, agave nectar, heavy cream, vanilla extract and salt into a small mixing bowl. Beat ingredients together with an electric mixture on medium high for 2-3 minutes (until smooth), stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula when necessary.
- Line a drinking glass with a small Ziploc bag and use a spatula to transfer ingredients into the open baggie. Remove from the glass and zip closed, cut off one corner of the bag at the very tip to create a small opening. (*Note: make sure you cut off only the VERY tip of the bag. you don't want a very big opening. You can go back later and cut a little more if necessary).
- Squeeze cheesecake mixture from bag into a 24 count silicone mini muffin pan until each cavity is about two thirds full.
- Use a food processor to crush your peanuts into small crumbs. (If you don't have a food processor you can also put your nuts into a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin/drinking glass or mince them up with a knife).
- Melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil (the remaining ½ tablespoon will be added to your chocolate drizzle) and add it to the peanut crumbs. Stir until well combined and then fill muffin pan cavities to the top with mixture. (*Tip: it's helpful to stir the peanuts and oil on occasion while portioning out to keep ingredients evenly distributed).
- Freeze for 2 hours (or overnight).
- Once fully frozen, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pop cheesecake bites out of the muffin pan. Arrange them on the baking sheet.
- Measure chocolate chips and remaining ½ tablespoon of coconut oil into a small, microwave safe bowl and melt. Drizzle melted chocolate over your cheesecake bites.
- Eat immediately or freeze/refrigerate your bites until you are ready to enjoy!
