In case you were wondering if chocolate peanut butter cups can get any better- they most certainly can. Enter into the new and improved, all dolled up way to indulge on the classic cure for your sweet tooth, but in a healthier way!
There is absolutely nothing wrong with sticking to the classics, and sometimes it’s just better not to mess with- but I assure you, you’ll be glad I messed with the traditional peanut butter cup.
First of all, you’re crazy if you don’t love chocolate, but I still love you. If you’re reading this post though, I imagine you have some sort of at least like for chocolate. For me, anything chocolate ranks right up there on the list of my favorite foods. And these Protein Almond Butter Cups with Strawberry Chia Jam might just have the new number one spot on that list.
So other than the peanut butter cup getting a glitzed and glammed makeover, what makes these so spectacular? Well I’ll tell you:
☆ they are made with dark chocolate and New Chapter®‘s new Complete Organic Plant Protein+ Powder!
☆ they have a sweet layer of strawberry chia jam- I mean…YUM! Also loaded with some great health benefits.
☆ they are allergy friendly made with almond butter instead of peanut butter, plus the protein powder is soy-free and dairy-free.
☆ they are naturally sweetened, which means they still satisfy your sweet tooth but aren’t loaded with added sugars like the kind you might find at the store.
☆ something about them has a hint of Oreo flavor, perhaps the addition of the vanilla protein powder mixed with the chocolate, I have no idea- but daannngg these are so good they should be illegal!
So now you know a few reasons why you should totally make these gluten-free, vegan, naturally sweetened dessert cups, but I also want to tell you a little bit about why I love New Chapter®‘s new Complete Organic Plant Protein+ Powder.
Other than the fact that it’s plant-based, non-GMO, organic, gluten-free, soy-free, and certified vegan, New Chapter’s signature blend is enriched with organic superfoods and clinically studied digestive enzymes making this protein powder much easier to digest than pea or whey protein isolates. These natural plant enzymes provide this powder with a boost that prevents protein bloat and discomfort while still providing you with 20 grams of protein per serving! Oh and there’s also zero grams of sugar making this an optimal complete and clean protein choice. Easily enjoyable mixed in your favorite liquid enjoyed as a shake, but I’ll bet your new favorite “liquid” of choice is melted chocolate that just magically gets stuffed with almond butter and strawberry chia jam wink.
So head on over to Amazon to order your protein powder, print the recipe below, and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram or Facebook with your Strawberry Jam Protein Almond Butter Cup creations!

Hi! These look AMAZING. I don’t have protein powder, though. Do you have a replacement for this, or can I just leave it out? Thank you!
You can probably just leave it out, but the texture might be a little different. I haven’t tested the recipe without it, just as a note. Would love to see your creation if you try them! Tag me on Instagram 🙂 enjoy!
