Ah, don’t you just love “skinny” desserts? Nothing is quite more comforting than knowing that you can enjoy one of your favorite guilty pleasures in guilt-free form.
These Skinny Dark Chocolate PB Cups are the perfect, deliciously creamy, melt in your mouth kind of treat that you need in your life. Like…right now.
One thing that I particularly love about this recipe is that it doesn’t use anything out of the ordinary in order for it to be healthier.
When I began this blog, I decided to make it my ultimate goal to provide recipes that promote a healthier lifestyle and can aid in weight loss without people having to go out and literally do an entire pantry makeover.
I’m not sure if this goes for everyone but for myself in particular, one of the most discouraging things that I’ve faced in the past when it came to trying to eat healthier was that a majority of the recipes that I found demanded a great deal of ingredients that I didn’t have….better yet, had never even heard of.
I would literally go from recipe to recipe, noting down ingredients that I would have to buy, and sadly after adding it all up, had to skip out because I just couldn’t justify buying over $40 worth of specialized ingredients that I had no idea if I would even use again.
Sorry guys, but this college kiddo does not have the bucks for that.
I have however, grown to love a handful of healthy ingredients that I think are very reasonably priced and ABSOLUTELY worth every penny. One of those is PB Fit Powder, aka THE BEST THING EVER.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with PB Fit powder, it’s basically powder made from roasted peanuts, where a vast majority of the oil is extracted.
Because of this, a huge chunk of those calories are extracted also without the taste being significantly different to organic peanut butter. 2 tbs of PB fit powder add up to a mere 50 calories, whereas 2 tbs of regular peanut butter rack up at around 200.
For those of you that are very calorie conscious, this is a HUGE deal! Bye bye cals….you won’t be missed 🙂
I love PB Fit powder for its versatility. In addition to being an awesome ingredient in these Skinny Dark Chocolate PB Cups, it can be used in so many other recipes, including:
- PB Maple Drizzle (the only drizzle you’ll ever need in life)
- Skinny Mini PB Oreo Cheesecakes
- PB Chocolate Chip Overnight Oats
- No Bake Vegan Samoas
I just love the pure, nutty taste that you get in these PB cups and how insanely easy they are to make! The recipe can also be adjusted very easily to make them vegan friendly, just simple use whichever vegan chocolate you prefer. Ta-Da! 🙂
