Equipment

  • silicone muffin cups

Ingredients

  • 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*

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

*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.
