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.

Cookies and Coffee Protein Bars

Cookies and Coffee Protein Bars

DSC_2823

I had no idea what to name these protein bars because the flavors I used don’t usually go together, but since I used a cookies and cream flavored protein powder and a coffee flavored nut butter, I decided to combine the two and thus got cookies and coffee!

This recipe is incredibly simple, only takes a few minutes to make and can be substituted with your favorite protein and nut butter flavors.


Recipe makes 2 protein bars.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mix and mash all ingredients together in a bowl until combined. The mixture shouldn’t be too sticky but still moldable. If it’s too sticky add a tablespoon more protein powder, if too dry add a tablespoon of water.
  2. Place mixture into a zip lock plastic bag and form into one bar.
  3. Remove from bag and cut in half (you can mold some more if necessary).
  4. Place bars in the fridge for couple hours or in the freezer for 15 minutes to set before serving. Store in an airtight container.

* Can be replaced with any protein or nut butter.
