Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies with just 4 ingredients! Yes, I did These are perfect for your chocolate peanut butter craving!


I guess that is where the ‘fat bomb’ term comes in- Packed with healthy fats, they keep hunger at bay and sugar cravings absent! 
One of my all-time favorite candy bars has been Reese’s peanut butter cups. Instead of recreating the cups themselves (they are going in my second cookbook!), I’ve given them a chocolate peanut butter protein ball makeover!


No Sugar Added Peanut Butter – I buy the two packs of organic peanut butter from Costco but any peanut butter that is only peanuts and salt is fine. Smackers Natural is one that is easily found.

Powdered Sugar-Free Sweetener – I’ve been taking the shortcut method and using powdered swerve when a recipe needs a powdered sweetener but you can grind your own erythrìtol or xylìtol in a food processor or blender.

Sugar-Free Chocolate – This recipe calls for a full 8-ounce bag, such as Lily’s Chocolate Chips, if you’d like to completely cover the healthy peanut butter balls in chocolate. I know good sugar-free chocolate is not cheap so you alternatively you could roll these in cocoa powder and just do a drizzle of chocolate or roll them in coconut.


How to make healthy peanut butter Cookies :

Ingredients:


1 cup salted peanuts finely chopped (not peanut flour)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sweetener such as swerve
8 oz sugar-free chocolate chips

Instructions:


1.      Mix together the chopped peanuts, peanut butter, and sweetener. Divide the dough into 19 pieces and shape into balls. Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until cold.
2.      Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or on top of a double boiler. I microwave chocolate chips, stirring every 40 seconds until they are 75% melted. Then I just stir until the rest melt.
3.      Visit  https://www.foodshow.info/ for complete instructions and recipe notes.

Peanut butter is a fantastic ingredient to use in Keto recipes or eaten on its own. It’s low in carbs, high in healthy fats and contains a good dose of plant-based protein.
Ensure the peanut butter you use is all natural and not pre-sweetened, as those contain sugar and excess carbs.
