Protein Packed Peanut Butter Cups
Author: April | Food n' Focus
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons chocolate or vanilla protein powder
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  1. Line a mini muffin tin with 12 muffin liners and spray with coconut oil spray.
  2. In a medium-size bowl mix peanut butter and protein powder together. Start with 2 tablespoons of protein powder and if your peanut butter seems drippy, add additional protein powder.
  3. Divide the peanut butter mixture into 12 even pea-size balls.
  4. In a microwave-safe bowl or double boiler, melt dark chocolate chips and coconut oil, stirring every 45 seconds until chocolate is smooth.
  5. Scoop one teaspoon of the chocolate mixture onto the bottom of each muffin liner. Then, place muffin tin into the freezer for about 10-15 minutes or until chocolate hardens.
  6. Next, place one protein peanut butter ball on top of each hardened chocolate, carefully flattening the ball with your finger until it has a smooth top.
  7. Add two more teaspoons of the melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter to each liner to complete your peanut butter cup
  8. Place muffin tin in the freezer for another 10-15 minutes until chocolate is hardened.
  9. Store in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or the freezer for up to 6 months.
