These protein packed double chocolate peanut butter cups are made without sugar, pack 13g protein per serving, and are totally low carb! They're great straight from the fridge or keep a batch in the freezer to keep them on hand for weeks!

Made with Botanica Health's Perfect Protein in Chocolate flavour for a dense, and fudgy chocolate protein base made from coconut, quinoa, and brown rice. Their protein is certified organic, stevia free, and contains zero fillers.

You can shop their wide range of unique protein powders July 15 - 31 through Amazon and SAVE 10% using my discount code: EVANNR10 


Recipe notes:

I've used peanut butter powder instead of regular peanut butter to keep these low in calories while boosting the protein significantly. You can however use regular peanut butter for a richer finish.

To keep them sugar free make sure to use a sugar free or keto chocolate.  I used Zazubean's zero added sugar bars.
