Every time I go keto, I always want a sweet fix at some point. Over the years I’ve really tried it all! But this delicious recipe ticks so many of the boxes.
I feel like it’s pretty hard to get it wrong when you’re combining peanut butter and chocolate. Or peanut butter and jam – but that’s my personal opinion.
As far as it goes for ingredients – most of them I get from Nourish & Thrive of course! Nourish & Thrive is an online wholefoods store I launched last year with my amazing business partner, Sara (she’s also a nutritionist!). We stock a huge range of whole foods that are entirely gluten & dairy free, plus we specialise in paleo, keto and vegan goodies. Our almond meal is some of the cheapest on the market, and it’s really high quality blanched ground almonds. We also sell pure Erythritol – without any of the added stevia (stevia can be really nasty on the gut!) which is a zero carb natural sweetener. If you’re not restricted by Keto Macros, you can sub this for 1/3 cup coconut sugar instead in the recipe!
N&T focuses on stocking super high quality whole foods for an affordable price, that also looks after the environment. We don’t package in any plastic! All of our handpacked products are in 100% plant powered bio-degradable and home compostable.
I also recently discovered Barker’s Spreadable Fruit in the grocery store (this is NOT sponsored – I literally just discovered it hahaha) and it’s a refined sugar free jam with less than half of the sugar than regular jam! I usually buy St Dalfours jam because this is also sugar free, but I thought I’d give the Spreadable Fruit a whirl instead. Either would work in this recipe, they have reasonably similar macros.
Speaking of macros, this beauty works out at:
26g Fat/9g Protein/4.2g Total Carbs/1.1g Net Carbs for the Chocolate – which of course varies depending on ingredients/chocolate used. I used Nourish & Thrive 70% Dark Dairy Free Chocolate Chips.
Barkers Spreadable Fruit:
23.7g Fat/8.7g Protein/2.7g Total Carbs/1g Net Carbs
23.7g Fat/8.7g Protein/2.1g Total Carbs/1g Net Carbs.
I would definitely recommend the spreadable fruit over regular berries just for consistency alone.
