We recommend storing your Protein PB Cups in the freezer. Lasts up to 3 months.
- 1/4 Cup creamy, natural peanut butter
- 2-3 tablespoon Vanilla Protein Powder We like Garden of Life
- 1 Cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Fill a mini muffin tin with muffin cases. Then spray them with coconut oil cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter and protein powder. Start with 2 tablespoons of protein powder and work up from there. The amount of protein powder depends on how drippy your peanut butter is to start with.
Next, separate the peanut butter and protein mixture into 12 marble-sized balls (~1 teaspoon) and set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt dark chocolate chips and coconut oil, stirring every 45 seconds until chocolate is smooth.
Place a teaspoon of the chocolate mixture in the bottom of each muffin case. Then place the muffin tin in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes or until the chocolate has set.
Next, place a protein peanut butter ball on top of each hardened chocolate and gently flatten the ball with your finger until it has a smooth surface.
Finally, add 2 more teaspoons of the melted chocolate onto the peanut butter to each liner to complete your peanut butter cup
Place the muffin tin in the freezer for an additional 10-15 minutes until the chocolate has set.
