GET EXCITED for this recipe folks. I am super exciting to be partnering with Betterbody Foods today for these delicious Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes topped with protein peanut butter frosting. Way back when FFF was just a wittle baby, I met the founder of Better Body Foods at The Blend Retreat. At that time, they only had one product. Today, they’ve got a plethora of amazingness and the best part is, it’s all in bulk! 

You guys know how much I love peanut flour. Well Betterbody Foods has their own variation (plus a chocolate version too!).

I decided to make my own protein rich frosting by using PB Fit, a little bit of honey, and almond milk, to make a spreadable peanut frosting that’s low-fat and oober delicious.

This stuff is delicious eaten alone and would even be the PERFECT protein-filled post workout snack. Frosting = protein. Yes.
