We have been thoroughly enjoying eating a high fat, lower protein, low carb diet. I have very little cravings, feel leaner, healthier and have dropped some stubborn pounds! These treats are just some of the amazing things you get to enjoy living this lifestyle!
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (or almond)
- 2 oz DARK chocolate (72% or higher)
- 1 cup butter
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 4 packets stevia
Melt chocolate and butter together in microwave or on the stove. Be sure not to over cook. Once completely melted and mixed well, add stevia and heavy cream. Mix well.
Using a mini cupcake pan, line with mini cupcake liners: cover the bottom of each liner with the chocolate mixture (abt a tsp). Follow with a dollop of peanut butter. Then go back and add one more layer of chocolate. Cupcake liners should be full.
Place the entire tin in the freezer for about 30 minutes to set.
That’s it! Enjoy! Keep the remaining Peanut Butter Cups in the fridge.
We had been following a PALEO diet for quite a while and recently, do to hormone issues, I decided to take it up a notch and go high fat, low carb to test it out. Feeling amazing! I’ve dropped 4 pounds and my husband has dropped several as well. We even just got back from a 5 day vacation and LOST weight! Who does that?!
We love trying new recipes to keep things interesting! This one is SO tasty! I guarantee we’ll be making these a lot ❤️ It’s really easy and you can modify for your own tastes.
- 1/2 cup nut butter of choice
- 8 oz block of cream cheese
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1.5 tsp stevia (add more if you would like this sweeter. I don’t like too much stevia as the taste is a little overwhelming for me)
- Unsweetened, shredded coconut: enough to roll each ball in
Mix all ingredients (aside from coconut). Be sure to mix well! Scoop spoonfuls of dough and roll into balls. Roll each ball in the coconut then freeze 30 minutes to firm up a little. Store in airtight container in fridge or freezer. ENJOY!
