truly, they make the world a better place :). who wouldn’t want cookie dough stuffed with peanut butter and then dipped in chocolate.

while Cookie Dough Protein Peanut Butter Cups look amazing, they taste even better if you can believe it!

the base is made in a food processor with ingredients like peanut butter, protein powder, medjool dates and more.

then, once the dough is well-mixed, the chocolate chips can be folded in.

you’re going to need some parchment paper muffin cups to make Cookie Dough Protein Peanut Butter Cups.

the first layer is the cookie dough, which is followed by a peanut butter filling.

then, the peanut butter cups are topped with another cookie dough layer and you can dip them in chocolate.

that is completely optional of course, they’re plenty delicious as is, but i am all for adding more chocolate!
