Ingredients
  1. Melted coconut oil or coconut oil spray
  2. 1 ½ c. dark chocolate chips
  3. ¾ c. of natural peanut butter (with oil separation!)
  4. Vanilla or unflavored whey protein powder
Instructions
  1. Lightly coat muffin tins (12 muffins or 24 mini-muffins) with coconut oil.
  2. Start with only ¾ c. of the dark chips over low-medium heat until melted, stirring continuously.
  3. Spoon a thin layer of melted chocolate into each cup. Place in the freezer for about 10 min., or until solid.
  4. In the meantime, slowly mix the protein powder in with the peanut butter until you get a desired consistency (usually pretty thick), approx. 1 scoop (20 grams).
  5. Begin melting the remainder of the dark chocolate chips (¾ c.)
  6. Take the muffin tins out of the freezer and flatten about a spoonful of peanut butter mixture in each muffin cup. Put melted chocolate over the peanut butter.
  7. Place in the freezer until hardened.
  8. Use a spoon around the edges to easily pop-out each peanut butter cup.
