PB2 Peanut Butter Collagen Cups

I posted these on instagram and my feed blew up! I mean, healthy peanut butter cups, what’s not to freak out about. If you watch my Insta stories you will notice I am very big into collagen these days. I really like Vital Proteins Unflavoured Peptides because it tastes like nothing and dissolves instantly. It’s full of protein and is important for healthy hair, teeth, skin and bones. ANYWAYSI keep experimenting with recipes and realized I just had to make something peanut butter, chocolate, collagen related.

When you take a look at the recipe below you will notice I use PB2 peanut butter powder. This is peanut butter in powder form where the majority of fats + oils have been removed. It’s a fun ingredient to have on hand because you can add into smoothies and baked goods. 

i hart these so much, and i hope you do too :)

  3. Place into freezer for 5 minutes
  4. While the liners are in freezer melt the chocolate in a small glass bowl. (Does not have to be liquid- I usually micro 30 seconds, mix a bit and another 30 seconds until chocolate is melted/still a bit lumpy)
  5. Take tray of liners out from freezer- spoon a bit of chocolate into each tray, and freeze 3 minutes
  6. Remove from freezer and top with remaining peanut paste and place back into freezer for 10 minutes
Notes
  1. Keep these babies in the freezer because they melt quickly!
