You had me at Peanut-Butter…

For those of you that know me, I love me some sweets! And I am always, and I mean ALWAYS, searching for treats that are Healthy, but taste like they are not! You know…the good recipes.. Some you make and think, well ya…no wonder its “healthy (fill in the blank)” However, every so often I find some decent items and I love to share!

Chocolate Peanut-Butter Protein Cups

Go ahead…. dance around the room for a minute or two… I did…

Better yet! Are you sitting down?? They are 4 ingredients…Yup thats it! *squeal!

All ya need is the following:

1/4 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter

2-3tbsp (depending on how drippy your Peanut Butter is)Vanilla Protein Powder (I had chocolate and they were just fine)

1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips

1tbsp Coconut Oil

Instructions:

  1. Fill mini muffin tin with muffin liners and spray with coconut oil spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium-size bowl mix peanut butter and protein powder together. Start with 2 tablespoons of protein powder and go up from there. The amount of protein powder depends on how drippy your peanut butter is to begin with.
  3. Next, separate the peanut butter and protein mixture into 12 marble sized balls (~1 teaspoon), and set aside.
  4. In a microwave-safe bowl, 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. Finally, 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. Enjoy!

(Now the only bummer is I have not macro’d these out…However…I did also make these with the enjoy life chocolate chips and they were fantastic.. The fat content is literally about 6g. I mean COME ON)… #winning!
