As 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.
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.

- 1 tbsp. vanilla protein powder

- 3.5 tbsp. water (warm)
- 1/2 scoop chocolate protein
- 1 tbsp. cocao powder
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil (melted)
- 2 tbsp. water (warm)
- Mix all peanut butter ingredients together until smooth.
- Pour 3/4 of the mix into the bottom of 3 cupcake liners.
- Mix all chocolate ingredients together.
- Pour all of the mix on top of the peanut butter layer.
- Spoon the remaining peanut butter mix into the center of the chocolate.
