21 Feb Protein Peanut Butter Cups
PROTEIN PEANUT BUTTER CUPS
1/4 cup peanut butter, creamy
2-3 tablespoons vanilla protein powder (I used Isagenix Isapro vanilla)
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tablespoons coconut oil
Fill mini muffin tin with muffin liners and spray with coconut oil spray and set aside.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Add two more teaspoons of the melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter to each liner to complete your peanut butter cup
Place muffin tin in the freezer for another 10-15 minutes until chocolate is hardened.
Store in freezer or refrigerator
