Chocolate Protein Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

Chocolate Protein Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

Peanut butter fudge is a healthy food. Yeah, I said it! Sure, it is rich in calories; however, it is packed with healthy-monounsaturated fats as those in olive oil. Because the higher fat level contributes to satiety, you will indulge in moderation.

In the following recipe, I nixed the sugar and butter that make the conventional fudge so bad for you and used Stevia, honey, and cholesterol-free coconut oil as a replacement. Two scoops of DailyBurn-Fuel-6 in the chocolate provides this treat some extra nutrients and protein.

Ingredients

  • 12 drops liquid Stevia
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons (42 grams) honey
  • 20 grams (1/4 cup) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 128 grams (1/2 cup) salted creamy peanut butter
  • 47 grams (2 scoops) EASor Vega One All-in-One Nutritional Shake | Amazon protein
  • 112 grams (1/2 cup) virgin coconut oil, softened

Preparation

  1. Fill your mini-muffin pan with twenty-four liners; set aside
  2. In a food processor or blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. Pour one tablespoon of this mixture into each muffin liner
  3. Place your muffin pan in a refrigerator for roughly 45-60 min or until the fudge solidifies/firms up. You can store them in the refrigerator for close to one week.

Here is my Pro Tip

To save you more dishes to attend to and make the process much easier, weigh out the sticky ingredients using a kitchen scale rather than using measuring cups. This is the reason I provided each ingredient’s weight in grams…. Of course, if you need to, you can use measuring cups!

Depending on your body weight and type of workout, a post-workout meal is supposed to contain 15-25g of protein for proper muscle recovery. A recipe that combines fruit, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder | Amazon, and hydrating liquid is an easy choice. If you get bored by the same old recipes, try the above one, and discover its magic – I absolutely did!

My gosh, it is so huge that at first I thought it was too big. However, it has been perfect, especially since it is hard to lie on my side all night naturally. I’ve had it for two months now and it has held up great. I even have two dogs who walk over it and I worry they’ll rip it, but they haven’t. I would definitely recommend it to any pregnant mamas out there.
