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..

Instructions

  • Line a plate or small rimmed baking sheet with parchment pape
  • In a small bowl, mix the peanut butter, sweetener, almond flour and vanilla until smooth.
  • 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.
  • After 30 minutes, place the chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave until fully melted, about 45 seconds.
  • Add the MCT oil to the melted chocolate and mix well.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    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!

    These are delicious and perfectly portioned too. My husband is devoted to eating keto, but I gained weight because I was eating carbs/sweets AND high fat. I now know losing the carbs and sugar is really the only thing that works for me. I’m buying your cookbook!

    Am wanting to try the peanut butter balls, but the MCT oil is pricy, can they be made without the oil?

      So I made them with coconut oil instead of the MCT oil, I also used hershey’s sugar free chocolate chips. Once the sugar alcohol removed there was only 1 net carb per serving.

      These are AMAZING!!!! Thank you so much for sharing.

      That would likely dry it out, so if you try that you’ll have to use less.

    I see the calories, etc. But how many balls make that number? Is it one? Is it 10. Maybe I missed that.

    I’m a little under a month in on my new way of eating and I’ve lost 10 lbs. I had a rough start bc I’m so addicted to Jelly Beans aka my “stress beans”! I keep a huge jar in my office full and reach in for a handful several times a day. That’s been the hardest part for me and there’s no Keto Jelly Bean recipe or replacement! Lol They are not official out of my office and life! BUT I made these chocolate pb balls today and omg ???? they are the Bomb! This should help with those strong sugar cravings and 2 balls were the perfect amount! I found your cookbook at Barnes & Noble when I first started and it’s my keto bible! Everything is so yummy and your explanation of starting the lifestyle and all the info is invaluable!! Thank you for paving the way for us newbies and for this awesome cookbook! Oh and my hubby loves everything I’ve made (he’s not on the same keto lifestyle) but he also eats what I cook and so far he loved it all!!

    Since I must eat gluten free, egg free, dairy free, is breakfast a thing of the past. Most recipes in the breakfast section, and many others use eggs and cheese. Help!!!

      I don’t always eat “breakfast foods” for breakfast, I actually often eat leftovers from the night before! I just recently added a Dairy Free category to the recipe section and I am working on a dairy-free pancake.

      You can. Just make sure that the brand that you used measures 1:1 the same as regular sugar for sweetness.

    These really look great. I make my own peanut butter so no problem there. The problem is trying to find baking chocolate chips here in Mexico. I will keep searching. If nothing works, I will have a friend bring some when they fly down from the states. Puerto Vallarta is a great place to live but they are not on board yet with the ketogenic lifestyle. It is getting better but the progress is very slow.

    Hi I used coconut flour instead of almond because I had run out. Is coconut flour still keto friendly for this recipe?

      Hi Katie, Coconut flour is keto friendly but it does not measure the same as almond flour. When substituting coconut flour for almond flour, you will want to use 1/4 of the original amount.

    These little peanut butter bites are to die for! I used a little MCT oil to mix with the ground peanuts too! It makes them super soft. I keep them in the freezer and they become a super fun frozen dessert!

    Anyone else have issues melting the chocolate chips in the microwave? Tried twice, burned each time in the middle and left a bunch of chips unmelted.

      Try smaller amounts of time and stir them in between each 5-10 seconds. Sometimes the chips hold their shape and when you stir them you will see that they are actually melted.

    Suzanne- I recently saw a recipe for Keto Sugar Cookies, and I don’t remember in which venue, but I can’t find it again. I want to make some snowmen ‘cookie fails’, but with something non- sugar. Can you help? I love your first recipe book – use it all the time. Now I understand you have a 2nd one out – where can I get it?
