I’ve been making this chocolate peanut butter keto candy on and off for years. Lately I’ve been really trying to stick to a low carb diet and took the time to think about the things that make me fall off the wagon and it’s always sweets. I just love them.
I figured I need to find a low carb ice cream, a cookie recipe (keto brownie cookies) and a candy recipe that will satisfy me and still be low carb. That’s when I remembered these candies. Each little chocolate candy has only 0.8g net carbs.
Simple Keto Candy Ingredients
To make these candies I used coconut oil, Divine cocoa powder, peanut butter like PB2, and Swerve confectioners sweetener. If you done care about keto or low carb ingredients you can use sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup or honey instead instead of the Swerve sweetener.
These are great because you get all the health benefits of coconut oil and still get a tasty treat when that sweet tooth starts calling your name.
Of course you’ve probably heard about all the great health benefits of coconut oil. I won’t go into that here because there is plenty to read. (Google “the benefits of coconut oil” and you will get 8,730,000 hits!) Here’s an article about the 10 Proven Health Benefits of Coconut Oil if you want a quick read.
Let’s Make Some Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Candy!
This takes only a few minutes to make. You basically melt everything in a pan and then pour into candy molds. I poured mine in little heart molds I found at the dollar store. However there are all kinds of inexpensive candy molds on Amazon.
Once the mixture is poured into mold place them in the freezer to harden. I then like to add them to a baggie and store in the freezer. You could also keep the in the refrigerator but because of the coconut oil they can be a bit melty.
I pop one in my mouth whenever I want, but take it from me, you can’t really sit down and devour a whole bunch of them. The coconut oil is really filling. They will fill you up for hours.
People on low carb or keto diets call these fat bombs. Their high content of healthy fats keep you in ketosis or fat burning mode and have the benefit of tasting good. That being said you shouldn’t eat a bunch of them. One or two for a snack is perfectly filling and satisfying.
These have been helping me satisfy my sweet tooth and curbing my appetite and they just taste good. I hope you like them as much as I do.
You an even mix it up a bit and add a few nuts to the candies if you want. Or forgo the peanut butter powder and use a drop of mint flavoring for a chocolate mint candy. Oh yeah and they are only 0.8 net carbs per candy. Not to bad. Enjoy!
