Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
These are a game-changer. With three ingredients, you can make killer, guilt-free peanut butter cups that are perfect for snacking, dessert, or holding you over until your next meal.
I don't want to blab on about these any longer, because you need to make them immediately! So here we go.
An empty ice cube tray or a mini muffin tin
Vegan chocolate protein powder (I prefer Arbonne's vegan chocolate protein)
Peanut butter (or any nut butter you want!)
Melt 5 tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave.
Mix melted coconut oil with 2 1/2 scoops of chocolate protein powder. It should be pancake batter consistency when mixed properly.
Spoon a teaspoon of chocolate protein/coconut oil mixture into the bottom of each ice cube tray slot or muffin tin slot.
Put the tray in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Take the tray out of the freezer. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of your favorite nut butter on top of each frozen chocolate slot in the tray.
Cover peanut butter with another teaspoon of chocolate protein/coconut oil mixture.
Put back in the freezer for another 30-45 minutes.
You're all done, enjoy them whenever you want!
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy a healthy protein-packed snack. I think my favorite time to have them is when I get a sweet tooth after dinner and need something to satisfy my sweet craving. One or two (or three) of these is perfect.
Benefits of vegan/plant-based protein vs. dairy-based protein.
Easy to digest - plants break down much easier in our digestive system than dairy does. FYI - we are the only species that drinks another animal's milk in adulthood.
Non-allergenic - many people have lactose or dairy allergies that prohibit them from consuming dairy.
Delivers essential amino acids to support muscles and muscle recovery.
Doesn't cause bloating or inflammation - dairy is an inflammatory food. Consume at your own risk!
Free of antibiotics, growth hormones, and steroids - yay!
Easier on the environment to produce than other proteins. This uses less energy, water, and land to produce & produces far less environmental waste than other proteins.
I hope you fall in love with these as I have! I feel like I'm eating decadent chocolate peanut butter truffles when I have these. Enjoy them and share with people you love!
