These no-bake, easy keto peanut butter balls with a soft, light consistency and a potent peanut butter flavor make a perfect little treat. They’re low in carbs and high in healthy fats and protein.
Peanut butter is my favorite nut butter, but when I made peanut butter fudge, I was like, “This is too much!” The gooiness was overwhelming and I couldn’t eat more than one piece. Apparently I’m not a peanut butter fudge person, but I wanted to make some easy-to-make sugar-free treats that will calm my sweet tooth cravings without knocking me out from ketosis. So, I made keto peanut butter balls, aka fat bombs, aka bliss balls – you choose what to call them. One thing is certain; they’re heavenly tasty and the texture is on point! You should give them a try. I guarantee you’ll fall in love with them.
HOW TO MAKE EASY KETO PEANUT BUTTER BALLS?
It’s so simple to make that you’ll be amazed! In a large mixing bowl, combine all your ingredients and mix well using a spatula (or your hands) until the dough has a crumbly consistency. Then, using your hands, form small balls from the dough. You should end up with 9 balls around 30g each. Lastly, roll the peanut butter balls in shredded coconut, place on a tray or a plate, and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving them. Enjoy your super easy-to-make sweet treat!
IS PEANUT BUTTER OK ON KETO?
It depends on what peanut butter you use. All-natural, unsweetened peanut butter is indeed a keto-friendly food. It’s a source of healthy fats and proteins and it’s also low in carbs. One tablespoon of all-natural unsalted PB provides around 2.1g of net carbs. But not all peanut butters are made equal – that’s why you want to read labels carefully. Go for PB that contains only peanut butter and sea salt and you’ll be safe.
