5 Amazing Peanut Butter Keto Recipes You Have To Try

Have you ever wondered, “Is peanut butter keto-friendly?” or, “Is peanut butter good for keto?”


What about, “There are no delicious, easy, keto desserts.”

You aren’t alone. What if I said keto desserts don’t have to be bland, boring, and overall depressing. That mindset is over with the options provided below.

Not only is peanut butter good for a keto lifestyle, but those that swear by the keto lifestyle can’t get by without an occasional peanut butter dessert, or two.

Even people on the keto diet aren’t acclimated to having absolutely zero desserts or sweet-tasting treats. And, if your diet isn’t 100% keto-friendly, but you’re looking to cut down on the gluten and sugar, keto desserts are there to curb cravings for sweets, leaving you satisfied and guilt-free.

When it comes to desserts, peanut butter keto recipes are my go-to. There are numerous recipes so you can use similar ingredients without getting tired of the same old thing.

Here are 5 amazing keto dessert recipes you have to try.

  1. Peanut Butter Keto Fat Bombs

This is the keto version of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I feel like I don’t need to say more.

Prep time and total time are 5 minutes. Again, need I say more?

Ingredients and measurements needed: 1/2 cup peanut butter, 2 tbsp coconut oil, 1 1/2 tbsp sweetener (I always recommend xylitol for its extensive anti-inflammatory and digestive function health benefits), 3 oz chocolate, 2 tbsp of coconut oil, additional peanut butter, or chocolate chips

Instructions: Gently heat the peanut butter and coconut oil so that they can easily be mixed. Stir peanut butter, coconut oil, and sweetener together. Pour into a mini muffin tray, ice cube tray, or something similar. Stir together the remaining ingredients, chocolate and additional peanut butter or oil, and layer on top. To finish, freeze to set. When you’re done, they should look like this.

  1. Peanut Butter Cheesecake Fat Bombs

This is another version of peanut butter cups, but with a twist, cheesecake.

Prep time is 30 minutes, while the total time is 3 hours.

Ingredients and measurements needed: 8 oz cream cheese, 1/3 cup peanut butter, 4 tbsp sweetener, optional 1/2 cup chocolate

Instructions: The fat bombs will be baked using a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Combine cream cheese, peanut butter, and sweetener in a bowl until creamy and smooth. Scoop this batter into balls and place it on a cookie sheet. Put the cookie sheet in the freezer and cool for 30 minutes. As an option, you can dip the balls into melted chocolate. At this point, freeze for 2 hours.

After following the recipe, you will have peanut butter, cheesecake, bite-sized candy.

  1. Chocolate Chip Banana Zucchini Bread

Perfect as a dessert, breakfast, or snack, this banana bread recipe will have you coming back to it time and time again.

Prep time is 10 minutes, while the total time is roughly 50 minutes.

Ingredients and measurements needed: 1 1/2 c gluten-free oats, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 1/4 tsp gluten-free baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 3 tbsp nutty cashew butter or peanut butter, 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut yogurt, 1/4 cup sticky sweetener, 1 cup banana, 1 cup shredded zucchini, 1/3 cup chocolate chips, 1 egg

Instructions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and prepare a bread pan with parchment paper or non-stick spray. Mix dry ingredients. Add egg, sticky sweetener, and yogurt until well combined. Fold in bananas, zucchini, and chocolate chips. Pour into your bread pan and bake for 40 minutes.
