Keto Peanut Butter Cups - Low Carb Yum.pdf101.1KB


⅓ cup natural peanut butter with no sugar added (Make sure the peanut butter is as natural as possible without any added sugar.)
⅓ cup butter melted (If you are dairy-free, you can use ghee. Coconut oil might work too, but it will give the peanut butter cups a different taste.)
⅓ cup powdered erythritol (you can use both powdered erythritol and vanilla stevia drops. If you wanted to, you could just use some vanilla and use more powdered erythritol.)
½ teaspoon vanilla stevia drops
½ cup whey protein isolate unflavored (Use unflavored whey protein so that it mixes with the rest of the ingredients without adding any funky aftertaste.)
7 ounces low carb chocolate bar (suggest using sugar-free chocolate. If you want it to have a richer flavor, use dark chocolate. For a fun twist, use sugar-free white chocolate!)


• In medium bowl, mix the butter, whey protein powder, erythritol, stevia and peanut butter together. • Using cookie scoop, drop about a tablespoon of peanut butter mixture into silicone cupcake molds. Press mixture down into bottom of each mold. Freeze for at least an hour. • In a chocolate melter, melt the dark chocolate and keep melted on warm setting. Note: this could also be done in microwave or double boiler, but the melter is best to get the right temperature. • Remove frozen peanut butter filling from each silicone mold and set aside. • Brush melted chocolate to cover bottom and a little bit along the sides of each silicone cupcake mold. While chocolate is still melted, press the frozen peanut butter filling on top of the chocolate in each mold. Top off with a layer of melted chocolate. • Chill cups in the refrigerator to set the chocolate. Once set, the candy can be removed from the molds. The cups are fine to have out at room temperature or can be kept in the refrigerator for longer storage.

Notes: A brush or small spoon is useful for spreading out the chocolate.To ensure the sides of the peanut butter cup have chocolate, it helps to squeeze the silicone mold after topping with melted chocolate. This helps the chocolate drip between the peanut butter disk and the silicone mold.Any low carb chocolate bars, either homemade or store bought, can be used in the recipe. Keto friendly chocolate chips work too but often have added fiber to hold the chip shape.
