Keto peanut butter balls recipe
These sugar-free chocolate chips and crunchy peanut butter combine the best of both worlds to create these low-carb peanut butter balls. These are a delightful fat bomb that will sate your sweet taste while preventing hunger! Try my Chocolate Keto Fat Bombs if you enjoy the flavor combination of chocolate and peanut butter (with Walnuts & Peanut Butter).
The nicest part about these protein balls is that they don’t need to be baked! They are ideal for the ketogenic diet since they are creamy and packed with good fats. These have a Reese’s peanut butter cup flavour to them. Before freezing them, I prefer to mix a sizable batch of these and roll them out. These taste amazing frozen, but if you prefer, you can also keep them in the refrigerator!
Keto peanut butter balls’ ingredients are as follows:
Make sure you use a brand of natural peanut butter when using it. Look at your labels because sugar is present in many brands. Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter is good.
Your fat bombs will be more cohesive if you use coconut flour. Almond flour might also be used as a substitute.
For this recipe’s sweetener, maple syrup, I definitely suggest Besti Monk Fruit with Allulose powdered sugar because it has the least harsh aftertaste. The maple syrup adds a flavour you’ll adore and is free of sugar.
If you decide to include chocolate chips, make sure you use sugar-free chocolate. The greatest chocolate chips are Lily’s!
These are some more sweeteners you can use if you’re following the keto diet. Just be sure you use powdered sugar—also known as confectioners’ sugar—instead of granulated.
Lakanto Monk Fruit Powdered is an alternative to Swerve Confectioners because both have a 1:1 ratio. I heartily advise using powdered sugar and Besti Monk Fruit. The least harsh aftertaste can be found in this one.
Frequently asked peanut butter ball queries: Is chocolate permitted on the ketogenic diet?
Absolutely, provided the chocolate is unsweetened. Each ounce of unsweetened has roughly 3 grams of net carbohydrates. Because Lily’s Chocolate Chips employ a sweetener that is suitable for ketosis and have no additional sugar, I adore them. If you’d rather, you can omit the chocolate.
Peanut butter is it keto?
Because they don’t eat legumes, some people who follow the ketogenic diet avoid peanut butter. That is a matter of preference. I use sugar-free, all-natural peanut butter. The net carbohydrates in just two teaspoons are around 5 grams.
Keto Peanut Butter Balls
- Butter, two TB
- ¾ cup Smucker's Natural peanut butter crunchy - make sure to stir thoroughly since oil accumulates on top
- 1/2 cup of sugar Besti Allulose powdered sweetener with monkfruit
- Coconut flour, 1 TB
- 1 teaspoon Lakanto maple syrup without sugar
- 1/4 cup sugarless optional Lilly's Milk chocolate chips
- Optional Topping: 1/4 cup of peanuts, crushed
- Butter should be softened before being combined with peanut butter.
- Apart for the chocolate chips and broken peanuts, combine the remaining ingredients with the peanut mixture. Mix until mixed at a medium speed.
- Add the optional sugar-free chocolate chips to the batter and stir to blend if using them. Although while they are wonderful on their own without the chocolate chips, they do add a nice new texture.
- Scoop out(teaspoon) the batter and roll into balls. I have the small pampered chef cookie scoop, which is the ideal size at about 1 tbsp.
- Crushed peanuts should be added on top. To make them stick, you might need to press them into each ball.
- Put freezer(before eating) for at least TWENTY minutes.
- For up to two weeks, keep in the refrigerator.
