Protein Peanut Butter Cups

Here’s a sweet (healthy) treat recipe that I came across that is approved by my family!

(note: these have to remain in the freezer as they will melt if you leave them out)

Here is the recipe:

  • 2 Tablespoons (32g) Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons (12g) Powdered Peanut Butter (or Peanut Flour)
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Scoop (30g) Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1/4 Cup (61g) Reduced Sodium Chickpeas (or Any Other White Bean)
  • 1/2 Ounce Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or Regular Milk/Other Milk Substitute)
  • 2 Tablespoons (28g) Dark Chocolate

Combine all of your ingredients aside from your Dark Chocolate into a food processor or really powerful blender. Process or blend everything together until it starts to clump up (be careful not to burn out your motor). Take out a muffin pan or silicone cups and evenly distribute your mix into however many you want to make. Melt your Dark Chocolate on either the stove top or in a microwave. Evenly distribute your melted chocolate on top. Put them in the freezer for 10:00-15:00 so that they can harden up.
