I absolutely love peanut butter cups!! I was determined to make my own for a quick and easy treat! I added casein protein to mine to boost the protein content, but it is completely optional. Casein is a much thicker protein than whey (as it is slower digesting) so it holds up better in this recipe. I recommend About Time Zz Night Time Recovery formula! You can purchase 2 different flavors: Peanut Butter or Chocolate. It definitely satisfies the sweet tooth while staying on track. Perfect for your dessert/last meal of the day.
Chocolate Coconutter Peanut Butter Protein Cups
Makes 1 delicious serving.
1 tbsp Sweet Spreads Chocolate Brownie coconut butter
2 tbsp any flavor Casein protein (I recommend About Time Zz Peanut Butter flavor), mixed with water. But the Protein layer is optional!
1 tbsp PB2, mixed with water.
2 tsp Natural Chocolate PB spread, melted & drizzled on top.
-Microwave the coconut butter for a few seconds. Spread it on the bottom of a cupcake pan. You can also line it with a foil liner.
-Stir your casein protein with about 2 tbsp. of water. You want it to be thick. Add it to the top of the coconut butter layer.
-Mix your PB2 (powdered peanut butter) with about 1/2 tbsp of water. Again, you want it to be thick and not runny. Place it on top of the casein layer.
-Finally, melt your chocolate peanut butter spread in the microwave for a few seconds, then drizzle on top of your PB cup.
-Place the pan in the freezer for 45 min. Remove and enjoy!
