Are you suffering from Halloween candy withdrawals or just craving ooey gooey chocolate peanut butter cups but don’t want to pack on the pounds. Try my recipe for healthy peanut butter cups. These are perfect for satisfying that sweet tooth craving.
- 2 scoops Gnarly Vanilla Whey,
- 2 tbsp PB slim/PB2,
- 1-2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk,
- 5 drops liquid stevia (from vitacost) equivalent to 1 packet stevia.
This recipe makes 2 peanut butter cups. In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients for the filling. Now in a microwave safe container melt 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil with the chocolate chips. Microwave in 45 second intervals. Next Pour 1/2 of the chocolate mixture into two separate sprayed muffin liners, freeze for 10min. Then spoon the peanut butter whey mixture evenly into the two muffin liners and then top with remaining chocolate and freeze for 15min. Remove from freezer and enjoy.
If you haven’t tried Gnarly Whey you are missing out! It’s not like most other whey products that taste chalky or vitamin-y (I know that’s not a real word but you know what I’m talking about). Gnarly Nutrition’s whey is grass fed, non-gmo, artificial sweetener free that rises above all others. I can tell you that I have personally tasted about 20 different types of whey and vegan protein powders and Gnarly Nutrition’s is my favorite. It’s the best tasting, it easily mixes with water (a big plus for a post workout shake when you are leaving the gym), cooks great (you know how I love making high protein recipes!), they have added pre and probiotics so they are easily digestible and they are a small local company with great values and great people. This product is especially good for those of you with sensitivities to artificial sweeteners (no sucralose!). I don’t know about you but when I tend to eat artificial sweeteners I tend to crave more sweets. That’s why I use stevia or Truvia in my recipes. Yes they are a little more expensive than some brands but you are getting a better quality better tasting product in return. They are available on amazon (see link below) or you can purchase directly from Gnarly Nutrition at www.gognarly.com. They are currently running a special at gognarly.com where the whey is on sale for $49.95, and if you buy any product you get a Gnarly Boost Free, also if you share on social media they will give you free shipping. And here’s my gift to you: at check out use “omninutrition” in the coupon code section and you will get 20% off. So you can get a tub of Gnarly Whey and Gnarly Boost for $39.96 plus tax and that’s with free shipping. It seems too good to pass up! I’m already hooked, I just wanted to share this great brand with you 🙂
