To stick to your diet, it’s important to treat yourself once in a while. But, on a keto diet, it can be hard satisfying your sweet tooth.

That’s because a lot of treats have sugar. And sugar equals carbs. With these No-Bake Keto Peanut Butter Balls, you can eat your cake. And have it too!

They’re delicious, soft, chewy morsels of peanut butter goodness. Perfect if you love peanut butter as I do.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Smooth Peanut Butter (1 cup) – This gives these Fat Bombs their creaminess and peanut taste. If you’re not a fan of peanut butter, you can replace it with cashew butter or almond butter instead.

Sugar-Free Maple Syrup (1/3 cup) – This adds sweetness and compliments the peanut taste. If you don’t have sugar-free maple syrup, you can just use a sticky sweetener of your choice.

Coconut Flour (½ cup)This makes the Fat Bombs chewy. Coconut flour is extremely absorbent, so a little goes a long way. That’s why you need only a bit of it.

You only want to use coconut flour for these fat bombs. That’s because if you use another flour, the texture will not turn out right (even if you increase the amount of flour).

You will also find the fat bombs less “peanuty” if you use a different flour. If you need to stock up on coconut flour, you can get some budget-friendly coconut flour here.

How to Make Keto Peanut Butter Balls

Step 1. Mix all the ingredients as well as you can.

Step 2. Line a large plate or tray with parchment paper.

Step 3. Form small balls out of the dough. Place them on the plate or tray and keep in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.

Is Peanut Butter OK for Keto?

Yes, peanut butter is definitely OK for keto. Two tablespoons of peanut butter (no added sugar) contain about 5 grams of net carbs.

So, you can definitely fit peanut butter into your daily macros. Just don’t go overboard.

Besides being lower in net carbs, it is also packed with lots of heart-healthy fats. And you get some fiber to boot!

How to Make These Balls Keto?

To make your Peanut Butter Balls keto, you want to use a sugar-free maple syrup-like ChocZero’s Maple Syrup. It has only 1 gram of net carbs per tablespoon. 

Another way you make these Peanut Butter Balls keto is by using coconut flour. Coconut flour is low in net carbs compared to regular flour.

For instance, 30 grams of coconut flour (or 4 tablespoons) of coconut flour contains only 8 grams of net carbs. The same amount of regular flour contains almost 22 grams of net carbs.
