1 flax egg (1 tbs flax + 3 tbs water) (for paleo option, sub flax egg with 1 regular egg)
1 cup almond butter (sub any nut butter)
¾ cup honey (can use 3/4 cup Lakanto Monk Fruit Maple Syrup [discount code: KTLEO])
½ vanilla extract
1 scoop vegan protein powder (if using whey, might need to toss an additional teaspoon of protein powder in there)
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
- preheat oven to 350 º.
- combine all all ingredients (except cups) in a medium bowl.
- scoop batter combo into individual muffin tins (about 1/3 way full).
- bake for 9-11 minutes (until perfectly golden brown on rims).
- drop one TJ’s dark chocolate almond butter cup in the middle of each muffin tin. ensure you don’t push it all the way down, as you’ll want batter to envelop the cup entirely on the bottom.
