- 2 tbsp coconut oil
Fill a mini muffin tin with silicone or foil liners and grease with coconut oil.
Mix peanut butter with protein powder a little at a time until you reach a thick consistency that is still spreadable. This will depend on your protein powder. Approximately 1/4 cup for most types.
Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave, 30-60 seconds at a time, stirring in between until melted.
Fill the bottom of each muffin well with approximately 2 tbsp of the melted chocolate. Place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes until solid.
Spoon 1 tsp of the peanut butter and protein mixture on top of each muffin well and press down with the back of the spoon, leaving space around the edges
Add another 2 tbsp of melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter, spreading to cover if necessary. Place back in the freezer for 5-10 minutes until set.
