I also used a White Chocolate flavored peanut butter by Buff Bake. You can certainly sub this for whatever peanut butter you have on hand but if you haven’t tried Buff Bake–what are you waiting for? It’s hands down my favorite all natural peanut butter plus it has added protein and flax! Yay! I am lucky enough to be part of the Buff Bake Tribe and get to give all of my loyal blog readers 10% off any Buff Bake product from their site http://buffbake.com/

Powdered Peanut Butter Cups

Powdered Peanut Butter Cups

DSC_1951As much as I love peanut butter, there’s a lot of fat–good fat–in it. And with as much as I consume peanut butter, my fat intake can get very high so I eat powdered peanut butter when I feel like I’m really going over board with my fats for the day.

Most peanut butter cups I make, I use real peanut butter and lots of coconut oil making it a delicious fat bomb of a dessert. Which don’t get me wrong, is totally healthy for you but if you are counting your macros, they can be difficult to fit in there.DSC_1967

Each peanut butter cup has about 158 calories, 7 carbs, 9g protein and only 11g fat which compared to a traditionally healthy peanut butter cup is significantly less.


Recipe serves 3.

Ingredients

Peanut Butter Layer

  • 1/4 c powdered peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter & Co)
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla protein powderDSC_1940
  • 1 tbsp. flour of choice (I used tapioca)
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil (melted)
  • 3.5 tbsp. water (warm)

Chocolate Layer

  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein
  • 1 tbsp. cocao powder
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tbsp. water (warm)

Directions

  1. Mix all peanut butter ingredients together until smooth.
  2. Pour 3/4 of the mix into the bottom of 3 cupcake liners.
  3. Mix all chocolate ingredients together.DSC_1931
  4. Pour all of the mix on top of the peanut butter layer.
  5. Spoon the remaining peanut butter mix into the center of the chocolate.
  6. Place in the freezer for 2 hours to harden.
  7. Let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.
