Looking for a high protein and healthy dessert recipe? Make your own homemade Frozen Protein Peanut Butter Cups! These delicious pb cups are made with just 5 simple ingredients and take only a few minutes to prep.
All you need for this one? A shaker bottle or mixing bowl and something to shape your peanut butter cups like these silicone muffin cups.
Add right into your shaker or mixing bowl 6 large pasteurized liquid egg whites, 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, 40 grams of your choice flavor protein powder, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and 1 packet of some sweetener.
Use a good tasting protein powder that compliments the other flavors in the recipe! Vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter, and banana are some of my favorite options.
Make sure to use pasteurized liquid egg whites as they’ve been heated up enough to remove anything that could be harmful to you.
Shake or mix everything together until your frozen protein peanut butter cups mix is smooth.
Take out your silicone muffin cups or alternative and evenly distribute your mix into them. Using the silicone cups will help prevent anything from sticking.
This is the part where you can optionally top or add into them anything you want like some crushed up nuts, chocolate chips, sprinkles, and so on. Let us know some of the creative and healthy ways you switch your frozen protein peanut butter cups up in the comments below!
Put your cups into the freezer for around 2 hours or until frozen.
Pro tip? Remove them from the freezer for 10 minutes prior to eating them
Make sure to keep these in the freezer so that they don’t melt!
