Nutty Butter Cups

Is it really August 30th today? I don't believe it. Um, summer can we start over again? I wish! This truly was the summer of all summers! Although we didn't go on an epic road trip as we typically do (saving our pennies for Canada this fall!) we did buy kayak's and have been spending as much time as humanly possible outside in the sun. With all of my water adventures, I'm always craving protein when I get home and I racked my brain for an easy recipe that's healthy and satisfies those sweeties, chocolaty cravings. You guys have been asking for a protein, chocolate recipe so here you go. And with the help of my fabulous pals on Instagram, this recipe has an awesome name too: Nutty Butter Cups!

Instead of buying peanut butter cups from the store that are filled with added refined sugars and the dreaded Soy Lecithin (insert horror music here) with only a few pantry staples, you can easily make these Nutty Butter Cups at home and stash them in the freezer for late night snack cravings. Plus with an added 15 grams of protein, these will FILL YO TUMMY UP! You can purchase my favorite flavor by Vital Proteins here. I use their Vanilla Collagen in this recipe and it's da bomb.com!
