Keto Peanut Butter Cups in 3 Ingredients

Personally I don’t feel the need to over complicate these cups. While some of you may prefer a sweetener I have just left that as optional. I used some Barney Butter Powder just because I had some in the pantry. Personally, I love to keep the centre of my cups soft and sticky rather than firming it up with too much powder or sweetener.

Basically these keto peanut butter cups use only 3 ingredients in my super quick basic recipe

  1. Nut Butter – in this variety I use peanut butter, but they work equally as well with almond butter, hazelnut butter, mixed nuts etc. Change it up each time so you have something new to try
  2. Chocolate – I love using sugar free chocolate. Well Naturally make a a dark chocolate sweetened with stevia and erythritol. Otherwise you can use dark chocolate or make your own raw chocolate. I just prefer to keep them as a complete sugar-free peanut butter cup recipe.
  3. Coconut Butter or Coconut Oil – can i just say that coconut butter adds so much more flavour and will always be my preferred oil.

Peanut Butter Cup Variations

Aside from the substitutes mentioned above I also am a bit partial to PB&J cups, or even adding some natural jellies in layered cups. Adding collagen or protein powders, fossil shell powder, gelatin, or electrolyte powders make for some very interesting and healthy variations.
