Here you have it guys…another protein packed Chocolate Peanut Butter recipe. These little muffin cups make a perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack! They are gluten-free and each muffin contains 10 grams of protein.
I love this recipe as its so simple to throw these ingredients together. You just mix the wet ingredients and add them into the bowl of dry ingredients. Fill the muffin cups with the batter, bake for about 15 minutes or so, and you have these perfect baked oat cups ready to go!
I like to eat these warmed up drizzled with extra peanut butter. Fancy giving these a go?! See below for the recipe…
