From keto peanut butter cookies to peanut butter fudge to chocolate peanut butter cups - keto peanut butter recipes are just irresistible! This roundup includes all delicious PB recipes on Sugar Free Londoner plus more sweet and savoury goodies by other bloggers.
In my opinion, peanut butter is the ultimate easy low carb gluten free treat. I love to sneak a teaspoon now and then sprinkled with salt. And I LOVE to make keto peanut butter desserts!
In fact, I can't decide which of the following dessert recipes is my favourite.
Is it the keto peanut butter cups - the ones that taste like Reese's but without the carbs? Or the Keto peanut butter balls? Or the chocolate peanut butter bars with their almond flour crust, creamy peanut butter centre and dark chocolate topping?
One thing is clear - peanut butter is FANTASTIC in keto desserts. And together with chocolate it is the ultimate dream team. You can never go wrong with a peanut butter chocolate combo!
Peanut butter is not just for sweets. It also enhances savoury dishes. Satay sauce is a staple in Thai cuisine, and its main ingredient is peanut butter!
I have found a few recipes by fellow bloggers that have included keto versions of satay sauce in main dishes and appetizers - yum.
Yes, it is! When we look at the nutrition, peanut butter is perfectly low in carbs. One tablespoon of peanut butter (32 grams) contains 3.2 grams of net carbs.
Here is the thing: Whenever I publish a keto recipe with peanut butter, there is always a reader who has read somewhere that "peanut butter is not keto".
This is a common misconception. There is no "official" keto diet food list. Every "keto coach" out there will tell you their own version of what is keto "approved". And sometimes peanut butter will end up in the "forbidden" food list simply because it is technically a legume and not a nut.
In my opinion, eating keto means that you make sensible, healthy food choices whilst staying in ketosis. And you can definitely do that whilst enjoying peanut butter - in moderation.
Of course it can - if you eat lots of it. It's the same as with plenty of other low carb foods. You need to stick to a sensible amount that will not blow your macros.
When shopping for peanut butter, make sure that you check the label! Ideally, your peanut butter should only contain one ingredients - and that's peanuts.
Many supermarket brands include sugar in their peanut butter, which we obviously want to avoid.
It’s super easy to make your own peanut butter! You need a high power, sharp blender/food processor for the smoothest results.
You can add a bit of oil to make it smoother (optional, but helpful especially if your blender is not so powerful). I also like to add a pinch of salt.
2 cups roasted peanuts
½ teaspoon salt (optional)
1-2 tablespoon coconut oil (or your oil of choice)
Simply process for a minute at a time, then scrape down the sides. It takes about 5 minutes in total!
