Ingredients
  1. Chocolate Layer
  2. 1/4 cup Unsweetened almond milk (or skim milk)
  3. 1/4 cup Plain low fat Greek yogurt
  4. 1/4 cup Cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  5. 2 tbs Protein powder (or additional cocoa powder)
  6. Pinch Salt
  7. 1 tbs Baking Stevia (or 2 tbs sweetener of choice) (or 4 packets Stevia)
  8. Peanut Butter Layer
  9. 1/4 cup
  10. Peanut flour (or pb2) (Can subsitute 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter, melted in microwave for 30 seconds, but this will change nutritional facts)
  11. 1/4 cup +1 tbs Water
  12. Pinch Salt
  13. 1/2 tbs Baking Stevia or 1 tbs sweetener that measures like sugar (or 2 packets Stevia)
Instructions
  1. 1. In a small bowl combine the ingredients for the chocolate layer and stir until everything is well combined. In a separate small bowl, combine ingredients for the peanut butter layer and stir until everything is well combined. Both mixtures should be free of clumps and creamy.
  2. 2. Line mini muffin tin with 14 mini muffin liners (I used silicone), and spray with cooking spray. Pour 1 tsp of the chocolate mixture into each liner. Follow with 1 tsp of the peanut butter mixture on top of the chocolate layer, and finish off by pouring 1 tsp of the chocolate mixture on top of the peanut butter layer.
  3. 3. Place muffin tin in the freezer and freeze for 1-2 hours, or until they are firm enough to remove from the muffin liners. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. These must be kept and stored in the freezer! They can be enjoyed by popping them out of the freezer about 10 minutes before enjoying!

Ingredients
  1. 1 large egg
  2. ½ cup butter, melted
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  4. 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  5. ½ cup Truvia sugar replacer

  8. ¼ cup raisins, optional
  9. Nonstick cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon nonstick liners. This is an important step as without parchment or liner cookies will adhere to pan.
  2. Whisk together the egg, butter, vanilla, almond extract and sweetener until smooth. Add the oatmeal, almonds and raisins; mix to coat. Drop mixture by heaping teaspoons onto prepared baking sheets. Spray the bottom of small spatula with nonstick cooking spray and flatten each cookie into a 2 inch round; making edges as even as possible. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Cool completely on baking sheets. Store in airtight container.
