March kicks off with National Peanut Butter Lovers Day. While we think there’s more than enough reason to celebrate the existence of our all-time favorite spread every day, we’re honoring this event by featuring low-carb peanut butter recipes you (and your pancreas) will love.
This shortbread is candy and cookie rolled into one. It uses low-carb almond and coconut flours for its base and rich dark chocolate with a tad of espresso for its topping, making it a flavorful option for snacks or dessert.
No oven, no problem. With this recipe, you just mix the peanut butter with sunflower and pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips, and other ingredients for the batter, scoop them onto a baking sheet, and place them in the freezer. After 2 hours, you get to enjoy a sweet, crunchy, and satisfying dessert.
Peanut butter in cheesecake sounds good, and it tastes even better if you top it with sugar-free melted chocolate. This recipe guides you on how to prepare this magical treat — without an oven. You make the crust in the processor and the cheesecake in the mixer. After putting them together, you let them set in the fridge for a few hours before adding the optional toppings.
This peanut butter smoothie is a light and refreshing drink for snacks. On days when you barely have time to make breakfast, or you’re bored with eggs and bacon, this can be a good alternative too. Add a scoop of low-carb protein powder if you want to make it extra fulfilling.
While the creamy and rich ice cream tastes good, the peanutty caramel sauce makes this treat even more savory. Top it with roasted salted peanuts for more protein, fiber, and crunch. If you prefer chocolate instead, the recipe has a link to a 3-ingredient keto hot fudge.
Do you love munching vegetables for snacks? Use this recipe for your dipping sauce. Made by stirring only 5 ingredients in a bowl, this sauce has the right combination of salty, sweet, and sour. It’s also versatile; you can use it for salads, in noodle dishes, and on cooked chicken among others.
