There’s nothing like a typical Reese’s peanut butter cup. The mixture of peanut butter and chocolate with sugary sweetness balancing the flavors is such a heavenly treat. Inappropriately, as with most commercial candies, health was an afterthought when they picked the ingredients.
This is why it is best to brand them yourself to get your chocolate peanut butter fix. All it takes is three element 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 element. 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.
