There’s nothing like a classic Reese’s peanut butter cup. The combination of peanut butter and chocolate with sugary sweetness balancing the flavors is such a heavenly treat. Unfortunately, as with most commercial candies, health was an afterthought when they picked the ingredients.
This is why it is best to make them yourself to get your chocolate peanut butter fix. All it takes is three ingredient substitutions and a few simple steps to make crave-worthy keto peanut butter cups.
Though there are several store-bought “keto-approved” or “healthy” peanut butter cup products, they also have several flaws.
Atkins Peanut Butter Cups, for example, use maltitol as their primary sweetener and ingredient. Since maltitol has a similar glycemic index as an apple and is composed of 67% net carbs, we recommend avoiding any product that uses it on keto.
You may also come across SlimFast Keto Peanut Butter Cups. At first, their ingredients and carb counts look good, but many keto dieters find that the texture, flavor, and quality of ingredients fall short (especially when you consider the cost).
All in all, I’ve yet to find a keto peanut butter cup product with high-quality ingredients at a reasonable price. Since it is easy to make them yourself, homemade is the way to go.
