Sugar-Free Keto Peanut Butter Cups

If you are anything like me pairing chocolate and peanut butter is a flavor made in Heaven. I always chose dark chocolate or a spoonful of peanut butter as a snack, so these peanut butter cups are some of my favorite keto fat bombs. Sometimes I dip dark chocolate directly into the peanut butter jar or almond butter or cashew butter.

These fabulous sugar-free high-fat bombs are a life savior since they not only taste amazing but are packed with tons of healthy fats and keep the hunger away for hours. Enjoy melt in your mouth keto chocolate peanut butter cups that have only 2g net carbs each.

If you are Reese’s peanut butter cups fan but want to skip the sugar, these homemade Peanut Butter Cups taste very similar, and they have no funky ingredients added!

PS: You can turn these easy low carb peanut butter cup recipe into peanut butter Easter eggs by shaping the peanut butter into an oval to look just like eggs.

Can I eat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on Keto?

Sadly, store-bought peanut butter cups are not keto-friendly as they are super high in sugar, carbs, and highly processed. Eating Reese’s Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups can kick you out of ketosis, so I suggest making your own sugar-free peanut butter cups at home that have only 2g net carbs.

Keto Peanut Butter Cups Ingredients

To make these sugar-free peanut butter cups, you only need 4 ingredients plus vanilla extract and salt. Here’s everything you need:

  • peanut butter- I love using all natural creamy peanut butter, but crunchy peanut butter works just as fine. Make sure to read the ingredients list and choose one that has no sugar listed.
  • unsweetened chocolate chips- Dark chocolate is a great choice too.
  • coconut oil- increases the fat content while making these keto peanut butter fat bombs extra creamy.
  • powdered sweetener- It’s essential to use a powdered sweetener because it incorporates well with the other ingredients, and it dissolves faster into the mixture. You can make powdered sweetener by simply grinding granulated sweetener using a clean coffee grinder or a powerful blender.
  • vanilla extract- choose a high-quality extract for the best flavor.
  • salt- a pinch of salt to boost the flavors is essential.

  4. Remove the muffin tin from the freezer and place about one teaspoon of peanut butter mixture into the center of each mini muffin liner.
