Recently, I teamed up with Amazing Grass to come up with a recipe featuring their Chocolate Peanut Butter flavored Protein Superfood. Even though the weather is finally starting to cool down, I still wanted to create an easy no-bake recipe that likely uses ingredients that you already have on-hand. An added challenge was making something that was gluten-free, soy-free, oil-free, vegan and obviously tasty! This post was sponsored by Amazing Grass, but all opinions on the product are completely my own. I have a lot of great things to say about it!
I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this new product from Amazing Grass, since it’s not only a protein powder but is also packed with superfoods and other nutrients. The flavor is exactly as it sounds, but neither the chocolate nor the peanut butter is too overpowering. This product does have a little stevia in it, but I found it to be a lot more subtle than other protein powders I’ve tried in the past. When I’m not making no-bake recipes like this, my go-to way to enjoy Amazing Grass is to throw it in a blender with a little non-dairy milk, frozen bananas and ice. The nutrition facts are impressive per serving and you can’t go wrong with this flavor, especially!
No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites
These individual-sized cheesecake bites are a cinch to make and use only a few ingredients. They are gluten-free, vegan, soy-free and even have some hidden fruits and veggies in them! Your friends will be amazed when they find out how simple, yet delicious this recipe is!
Ingredients – Crust:
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup peanuts
1 Tbs maple syrup
Ingredients – Filling:
1 serving Amazing Grass Protein Superfood, Chocolate Peanut Butter
1 small banana
1/4 cup peanuts
2-4 Tbs almond milk
1. Place the oats and peanuts in a high speed blender and mix until you get a flour-like consistency. Add in the maple syrup and continue blending until the mixture sticks together.
2. Using a cupcake pan, place the crust mixture into 4 wells of a cupcake pan making sure to press into the bottom of the pan. Place in the freezer while preparing the filling.
3. Put all ingredients for the filling into a blender, and blend until you get a smooth and creamy consistency. Start with less almond milk and add more if needed. Pour this mixture into the cupcake pan on top of the crust.
4. Freeze the cupcake pan with the filling and crust for 1-2 hours so it can set. Remove from the freezer and use a butter knife or something similar to remove the bites from the pan if needed. Allow to thaw for 5-10 minutes before eating and enjoy!
*Note: these are best when enjoyed straight from the freezer. Thawing and re-freezing is not recommended.
