I heard today was National I love Reese’s Day and it seemed like perfect time to share my Protein Peanut Butter Cups! A homemade healthier version I make with plant-based protein, just one will satisfy any sweet craving so I try to keep them stashed.
Very similar to Healthier Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs I shared last month. While we still make those in ball form these seem to be a little quicker to make and have slightly softer centers and don’t require coconut flour.
I use to have a huge sweet tooth but that has seemed to change since G was born but I still love my peanut butter cups, maybe it’s the peanut butter. Chocolate peanut butter combos will always be a favorite.
I think the peanut butter to chocolate ratio is perfect, well maybe not so much on these as I had a helper and the bottoms got a little thicker than I wanted but they still are delicious and it won’t stop me , or the family, from eating them.
I use my favorite Four Sigmatic Peanut Butter, or Sweet Vanilla, Plant based Protein Powder. Adding in protein and some of my favorite adaptogens like reishi and ashwaganda (among many more)! Their website has all the details, Four Sigmatic (affiliated link). If you decide you want to try it use code MISSWHISK to save (which I’ve found often costs less than buying at Whole Foods but it all depends on the sales). I just found out when I woke up this morning the Four Sigmatic Birthday Sale with up to 50% off (a few bundles are over 50% off) is still up and my code works on top of it!
Protein Peanut Butter CupsFor the kids I typically go with Vega or Ripple plant-based protein, you can also use peanut butter powder or coconut flour (start with 2 tablespoons of coconut flour).
These are a must to keep stashed in the back of the refrigerator, or freezer, for those days. Just make sure they’re hidden well because if the family finds them they won’t be there when you need them!
