Now here’s a topic that works for me! Peanut butter is one of my favorite foods. It has been a staple in our home forever, and it might be that because I grew up on peanut butter sandwiches (especially when there wasn’t much of anything else in the house except a jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread when I was a kid), but I’m always open to new ideas for using peanut butter. For this week’s Home Matters Linky Party #209, I decided to gather up a few keto-friendly, low-carb recipes that include peanut butter. Here’s what I found . . . . #PeanutButter #HomeMattersParty
There are lots of great recipes that include peanut butter, but most of them also feature chocolate . . . all of which is great if you are looking for a sweet treat. But I was hoping to find a recipe for bars or bread that would be really peanut butter-y but maybe not quite so sweet. Here’s a recipe for peanut butter bread that actually doesn’t include any type of flour at all. Not even almond or coconut flour, which are typically included in low-carb bread and bar recipes. So I might have to give this one a try!
And when you are looking for something sweet and chocolate-y, why not try these 4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Balls from Satisfying Eats? Sometimes you just want a little snack in the afternoon with your cup of tea, and these would be perfect for that mid-day treat.
No chocolate in this recipe either, but it looks like it would be the perfect yummy dessert for anyone watching their carb count for the day. We really aren’t doing full-on keto, but just doing our best to minimize sugar and carbs. Makes a huge difference in how I feel and my energy level, and especially if I can still have peanut butter – works for me!
I have to confess – most of the low-carb recipes we’ve tried have been pretty good. I think that might be partly because most keto-friendly recipes and foods have a high (good) fat content so they fill you up rather quickly and stick with you for a while. Whenever I would have a bagel and cream cheese or an English muffin with peanut butter (actually my favorite!), I would be hungry again in about an hour or two. With the high (good) fat / moderate protein meals, I just don’t think about feeling hungry most of the time. When I first read about “fat bombs” that seemed kind of yucky to me, but they are really pretty good, too. But a little goes a long way, because they are really super rich. Peanut butter, cream cheese, sweetener (we use Stevia), and a little bit of cream make these sweet and yummy for a mid-morning coffee break.
Here’s another recipe I found that can be made with or without the chocolate layer on top. I was looking for a recipe that might be good for a breakfast bar, so I didn’t want it really sweet, but lots of peanut butter is a very good thing!
Then there is the true peanut butter cup lover’s choice – No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Ketovale. If these are as good as they look, we just might be making this every week around here. I’m definitely going to give this recipe a try this weekend. I’ll let you know how they turn out!
