View recipe

This Peanut Butter Protein Cup recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, kid-approved and so delicious. These cups are sure to satisfy a sweet tooth or hunger strike and they provide the body with nutrients like healthy fats and protein with no added sugar.

Your day is about to get a bit brighter with this amazing snack recipe. With 3 growing kids our family is always looking for healthy homemade snacks that are quick to make and that the kids will actually eat. Rowan loved these so much that we needed to make a second batch.

We love to meal prep this snack on Sunday’s so we have delicious, homemade snacks ready to go for the week. These cups freeze well for up to one month so feel free to double up the recipe and make extras.

This recipe is also very versatile, change it up and avoid snack boredom by tossing in some chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, or unsweetened coconut flakes.

Coconut oil is an excellent substitute for butter in recipes so you can easily make recipes vegan. By having healthy fats and protein in this snack it can help keep you fuller longer, and more satiated which can aid in weight loss.

We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family. Now let’s get to it.
