Keto Peanut Butter Cups

Let’s get real.  Who doesn’t LOVE regular, full carb Peanut Butter Cups?  Don’t worry – this recipe is not for those! There ARE a few things that I miss, though.  So I set out to make the best Keto Peanut Butter Cup recipe out there!

I seriously wish I would create my own little “keto peanut butter cups” wrappers and wrap these just like the “real thing”. I bet nobody would notice the difference. Well, other than the packaging of course.

These are great for kiddos as well because they are small and satisfying.

What Size Muffin Tin Should I use?

Honestly, you can use whatever size you want! The smaller the tin, the more keto peanut butter cups you’ll have to snack on! And I happen to love bite size keto treats.

If you use a larger tin, then you’ll have fewer treats. It all works out in the end.

Low Carb Sweeteners

I chose to use Lakanto powdered sweetener. Swerve also has a version. If you don’t have either one, you can simply put granular sweetener into the blender and blend it until powdered!

How to Store Keto Peanut Butter Cups

Make sure to keep these in the fridge because they melt pretty fast!  Keeping them on the counter is a no-no!

Plus, they taste amazing frozen if you want to keep them in the freezer!
