Want to make it a special day? Then add chocolate. Want to make it an even better one? Then add peanut butter, too.
Chocolate makes any day a special one, but adding peanut butter makes it that much better. We’ve got a recipe that will satisfy your sweet tooth while also aiding in your keto diet.
Our Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bomb recipe will make you think you’re indulging in a Reese’s peanut butter cup, only without the sugar and guilt.
It provides a good amount of dietary fat to help you stay in ketosis. Fat bombs are designed to boost your ketone production, which helps you stay focused and satisfied.
Our recipe uses real peanut butter, but keep in mind that this might not be considered as strict keto to some people. Peanuts are a legume, and you might avoid this if you have any kind of allergy.
But unlike other legumes, peanuts are a good source of fat. They also contain fiber, which helps keep the net carbs down.
You can use a keto-friendly nut for this recipe if you wish. Almond butter would work well. But as long as you keep your portions down, you can eat peanut butter on a keto diet.
Besides, nothing pairs together quite like peanut butter and chocolate! It’s a winning taste combination.
This recipe also calls for melted butter, vanilla extract, raw cocoa powder, and the keto-friendly sweetener of your choice.
Make sure you buy a brand of cocoa that is unsweetened. Raw cacao powder works well because it’s unprocessed and contains the most flavonoid antioxidants.
Stay away from peanut butter than contains added sugar and other flavoring. Your peanut butter should contain peanuts from organic, non-GMO peanuts and nothing else except for maybe sea salt!
Let’s Do It!
This recipe uses two of the same batches of ingredients. The only difference is that one has chocolate in it and the other is just peanut butter.
To make, add the melted butter, peanut butter, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, erythritol to a bowl and mix.
Take another bowl and mix the same ingredients without the cocoa powder.
Now, the masterpiece production process begins. Add the chocolate mix to muffin paper liners and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Once set, add peanut butter topping to the top of the chocolate and put back in the fridge.
You will want to let these sit in the refrigerator to set until they are firm before eating (if you can).
