Easy low-carb peanut butter truffles only four ingredients
guilt-free chocolate treats
Recently, I have been trying to cut down on the amount of sugar and refined carbs that I eat as with most new habits
It’s not that bad once you get into it, but I still find there are certain foods
I really miss if I have some kind of sweet
Indulgent treat I can substitute
I know it is far less likely that I will fall into the temptation of eating something that doesn’t align with my current goals
Enter chocolate peanut buttered ruffles. They are delicious
satisfying and so incredibly easy to make they only require four ingredients and
Because you’re making them yourself. You can alter the recipe to suit your nutritional and taste needs
All you need is four ingredients. All you need is coconut oil butter peanut butter and chocolate
Chips if you want to make it even simpler, you could replace the butter with more coconut oil or vice versa
By using dairy-free chips and coconut oil you can make these truffles
Completely vegan if you wish they were a little bit sweeter
you can increase the amount of chocolate or add a sugar-free sweetener like stevia if
You’d like a little more protein and less fat you can increase the amount of peanut butter and decrease the amount of oil and butter
Obviously if you change the ingredients the nutrition information
Included with this recipe will not be accurate for your truffles as you can see the possibilities are quite numerous
this is also a great way to make an all natural fancy treat without doling out the big bucks if you
already buy natural or organic versions of these
Ingredients then you can mix up your truffles with the peace of mind that no one is sneaking in any additives though
These are low in sugar
They were still sweet enough for my dear husband who is definitely not willing to compromise flavor for a healthier option
Every time I pull one out he asks if he can have one too
Low-carb diets I first came across the idea for this dessert while looking through a website with IDO. Genic
in case you don’t know a ketogenic diet is one that
prioritizes fat consumption and cuts
Carbohydrates down to a minimum this diet has been proven to have a positive impact on conditions like epilepsy
Many other people have found the ketogenic diet helps them lose weight or regulate their hormones. I
Personally don’t subscribe to the ketogenic diet
But I have found that increasing my fat consumption and decreasing my carbohydrate consumption
Sometimes helps decrease acne breakouts on my face
Eating a higher amount of fat in my diet also helps me feel fuller
and so I am less prone to
Mindless snacking or overeating if you are increasing the amount of fat you eat
I recommend you still stay mindful of how many calories you are consuming
Since foods high in fat are more calorie dense than low fat foods
It’s also good to make sure you go for enriching natural sources like avocados
coconut oil fish oils or nuts the benefits of a higher fat diet

this time also went much better because I had molds to make the truffles in I
Had previously let the mixture cool a little and then dropped a spoonful at a time onto a tray covered in aluminum
It didn’t alter the flavor at all, but obviously they weren’t as uniform in size or shape
Being able to pour the mixture into a mold while it is still warm and then allow it to harden in the fridge or freezer
Is so much easier so it’s not impossible to make these if you don’t have a silicone mold
But it certainly streamlines the process even an ice cube
Tray will probably work
Still don’t let lacking that little bit of equipment keep you from diving into these decadent morsels cook time
