Keto Peanut Butter Bites

Hey there!

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes from my new book, Simply Keto. This recipe is called Pop Pop’s Peanut Butter Bites. These delicious bites remind me of peanut butter cups, but the great thing about this recipe is that there’s no need for special molds or sugar! Only 6 simple ingredients, and ready to eat in less than an hour! Enjoy…

Pop Pop’s Peanut Butter Bites

PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES, PLUS 40 MINUTES TO CHILL • COOK TIME: 1 MINUTE YIELD: 10 BITES
(2 PER SERVING)

  1. Line a plate or small rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the peanut butter, sweetener, almond flour and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Form the peanut butter mixture into 10 small balls and place them on the parchment-lined plate. Place the plate in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  4. After 30 minutes, place the chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave until fully melted, about 45 seconds.
  5. Add the MCT oil to the melted chocolate and mix well.
  6. Remove the peanut butter balls from the freezer. Dip the balls one at a time into the melted chocolate. Use a spoon to gently roll the balls in the chocolate until they’re fully covered. Place the chocolate-coated balls on the parchment paper–lined plate.
  7. Place the chocolate-coated balls in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the chocolate is solid. Store extras in a zip-top plastic bag in the freezer for up to 6 months.

    Just recently got your book and started the keto diet about a week ago. We love your cookbook. Have mad 10 different recipes from it and have not been disappointed yet. Love the simple approach to most of your recipes.

    Hi. I’m Mirranda and I’m on my 2nd day of my keto lifestyle change. First let me say this book is FABULOUS and has everything a beginner needs. I’m going to try some recipes tomorrow, but I’m very confused about my boood glucose numbers. I bought a blood glucose monitor and This morning before eating my # was 95, and this evening I checked again and it was 113, two hours after dinnereven thiugh I stayed at or right below all of my macros all day. Am I reading this thing wrong? The book says anything OVER 0.05 mM/L means you’re in ketosis, but I can’t possibly be in ketosis that fast, and these numbers are freaking me out. Help!

      Blood sugar and blood ketone levels are two different things. Make sure you have a meter that also is testing blood ketones if you want to track!
