Protein Almond Butter Cups
What's better than a peanut butter cup? An almond butter cup that is amped up with protein and finished off with a dark chocolate layer! This easy recipe comes together with just four ingredients.
Servings: 8 cups
- 8 tbsp. almond butter or nut butter or choice, the drippy kind (no added sugars)
- 1/2 packet BiPro BOLD Chocolate Whey Protein Powder ~20g
- 4 tbsp. dark chocolate chips dairy-free if needed
- 1 tsp. coconut oil or vanilla flavored ghee
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil optional*
Mix together your almond butter and BiPro BOLD Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
Evenly divide the almond butter between 8 small silicone muffin cups (or 4 large ones)
Place in the freezer for one hour
Melt your dark chocolate chips with 1 tsp. coconut oil or vanilla bean ghee
Evenly divide the dark chocolate over the top of the almond butter.
Allow to freeze for an additional 12 hours or until set.
Remove from the silicone cups and enjoy!
*These are best stored in the freezer. Remove one - two almond butter cups from the freezer and add to your meal prep container before heading to work.
**If you would like to make the almond butter cups more refrigerator friendly, please mix 1 tbsp of melted coconut oil into your almond butter and protein powder mix. This will allow them to hold their shape better while not being frozen.
