Chocolate Protein Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

(Last Updated On: January 14, 2018)

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 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, protein powder, 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!
