White Chocolate & Macadamia Nut Protein Cups
This recipe is really easy and something you guys can make for yourself or a loved one in just under 10 minutes, using only a few ingredients.
The cups are 100% sugar free but don’t let that put you off into thinking they taste like a bunch of artificial lab-concocted nastiness because these chocolates are delicious! They definitely don’t have that weird artificial sweetener aftertaste that a lot of sugar-free snacks out there have.
Making these little bite-sized cups is simple. The only thing tricky about them is that they use a couple of unusual ingredients: sugar-free IMO syrup and sugar-free chocolate.
You don’t have to get them though, not if you can’t be bothered about your cups being sugarless. You can just sub the IMO syrup for agave syrup (or date syrup) and the sugar-free chocolate for a regular bar of dark chocolate goodness.

2 tbsp vanilla whey protein
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp macadamia butter (or cashew butter if you can’t find maca)
Few drops of stevia or your flavouring of choice
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp of IMO syrup, zero-calorie syrup (or agave if you don’t mind the sugar)
1 bar of sugar-free white chocolate
1-2 tsp of almond milk (juuuuust enough to bind your ingredients together)
1 tsp vanilla essence (optional but it goes really well with the white choc so, if you have some handy, throw a bit in)
1. In a bowl, combine all your ingredients (except for the white chocolate) until you get a soft dough like the one pictured below.
2. Make 6-10 little balls out of the dough.
3. Melt the white chocolate in a bain-marie and use half of it to coat the botton and sides of 10 tiny cup molds.
4. Add the dough balls to the white chocolate and then top them with more white chocolate.
5. Refrigerate for an hour or freeze for 30 minutes.
That’s it – done!
