No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Cups

6 Cups284 cals

We’re back with another easy and delicious high protein dessert! These No Bake Peanut Butter Oat Cups are macro balanced, made with 7 simple ingredients, and take only a couple minutes to prep!

Protein Oat Cups Base Layer

We’re going to start these by making our base layer. To do this, add into a mixing bowl 1 cup of rolled oats, 1 1/2 scoops of a protein powder, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 4 ounces of a Greek yogurt.

I like using vanilla here but really, as long as it compliments the peanut butter flavor you can use whatever flavors you want for your protein powder and Greek yogurt.

Drop a comment with your favorite flavor combinations in the comments below!

Mix all of those ingredients up until everything is combined. If your mix appears to be too dry you can add in a little more Greek yogurt.

From here, find a muffin pan, mini muffin pan, silicone muffin cups, or whatever you can that’ll allow you to layer.

Evenly distribute your base layer mix into the bottom of whatever you’re using and press your mix.

Pro tip? A damp hand will keep anything from sticking.

Protein Oat Cups Middle Layer

For your next no bake peanut butter oat cups layer? Add 4 tablespoons of peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter into a mixing bowl.

Mix those together until smooth and evenly distribute that layer on top of your base layer. It should spread super easy.

Protein Oat Cups Top Layer

This last layer is completely up to you. You can go regular chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, sugar free, and so on. I’m going sugar free today. I’ll make sure to put the calories with all of these various toppings below in the recipe card.

Want to cut down on the sugar in the recipe? Use sugar free chocolate chips AND sugar free syrup instead of honey!

To make the topping all you need to do is put whatever you’re using into the microwave for around :30 seconds, mix it around (it’ll burn if you don’t keep mixing it!), and repeat until you can easily spread it.

Top your cups then put them into the freezer for around 20 minutes or until they look like this…

As you can see we made 6 no bake peanut butter cups today. I’ll usually keep mine in either the freezer or fridge until I’m ready to eat them.

P.S. If you keep them in the freezer they’ll last a bit longer but remember to let them thaw out a little bit before eating them!
