Crunchy Protein Peanut Butter Cups

pb cups

Awwww yeahhh, been dying to make these forever! I had the recipe in my head for the longest time, just never got around to putting it into action so today I decided what the heck? and I went for it! They turned out so great! Aren’t they just the cutest things you’ve even seen? And just in time for Halloween! This year when everyone is pigging out on reese’s cups, you can feel good eating something sweet & also good for your body! (Not saying having the occasional PB cup is bad, again read up on IIFYM for more information… 😉 ) Anywhoo, try these out and let me know how they turn out! I’d love to here from you :).

Makes 2 Servings (4 PB Cups)

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop (30g) of PB Chocolate Whey or Chocolate Whey Protein Powder(I used Whey Gourmet, this brand is sooo delicious!)
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tbsp 0% plain greek yogurt
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tbsp water or until consistency of batter becomes smooth and creamy  enough to pour into molds (add as little as possible for best results!)
  • 2 tbsp PB2 (enough water until smooth consistency, able to pour)
  • 1 tsp Truvia or another granulated sweetener to taste (you want it a little sweeter than you’d think because it always tastes a bit less sweet after freezing!)
  • 4 tbsp natural crispy puffed rice cereal (could substitute Rice Krispies, I used the nature path brand)

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine protein powder, cocoa powder, salt. Add greek yogurt, vanilla and enough water until batter is smooth and pourable. Add stevia until desired sweetness.  In a separate small bowl, combine PB2 and water until reaching again a “pourable” consistency(*feel free to add some sweetener to you PB2 as well if you like!).  Pour a bit of your chocolate batter into a mini muffin cup tin until about 1/3 full. Top with a small spoonful of your PB2 mixture, 1 tbsp of the crispy rice cereal and another spoonful of the chocolate mixture. Repeat for all 4 molds. Place in the freezer for at least 3-4 hours before eating. Once frozen, pop out with a knife and eat immediately or place in a plastic bag and store in the freezer for a quick treat! *Note: these are messy and tend to melt a bit so be prepared haha, but they are totally worth it because the best part is licking the chocolate off your fingers!*

One thing I never really liked was cereal, a lot of people might call me crazy but I was just never a “cereal person”. I’d rather have eaten a muffin or bagel for breakfast before going paleo. But now I discovered..cereal can actually be really good and I guarantee, you will probably like paleo cereal just as much if not more than regular cereal! It’s got tons of different things in it including chocolate.. and tastes soo good, like I can’t explain how much I love this recipe. Each bite has a new flavour since there are so many unique ingredients and the sweetness from it is just perfect. Anyways..Here’s how you make it! Take me to the recipe!
