Keto Peanut Butter

Share to save for later!

Peanut butter is probably one of the tasty and easy to indulge low carb snacks. It’s one of the common ingredients to make low carb desserts and fat bombs.

When it comes to peanut butter and keto diet, there are arguments, some people say it’s keto-approved, some say it’s not.

Is Peanut Butter Keto-friendly?

Peanut butter really falls into the grey area of Keto. People who do strict keto avoid eating legume in general because of the inflammatory effects on the bodies.

However, peanut seems to work fine for most people, unless of course, if you have allergies to peanut then you should avoid it at all cost.

Bottom line: on a low carb and ketogenic diet, eating peanut butter is really a personal choice.

What Are Other Alternatives To Peanut Butter?

Some keto-friendly nut butter choices are Macadamia Nut Butter, Coconut Butter, Almond Butter, or Perfect Keto Nut Butter.


The problem with most store-bought peanut butter is because they add bad ingredients that are not keto-friendly such as vegetable oil, palm oil, sugar, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, stabilisers, etc…

If you buy peanut butter at the stores, make sure they are made from natural 100% freshly roasted peanuts and maybe some salt added.

How To Make Peanut Butter From Scratch

The easiest way to make peanut butter is just by putting roasted peanuts in a blender and blend until you obtain the desired consistency.
