What kind of peanut butter can you have on keto?
You can eat peanut butter that is labeled as natural with no sugar added (like this natural peanut butter) when on the ketogenic diet. Two tablespoons of all natural no sugar added peanut butter has 7 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fiber which equals 4 net carbs per two tablespoons.
Is peanut butter OK for ketosis?
You can eat small quantities of all natural no sugar added peanut butter on the ketogenic diet. Even though there is no added sugar there are still carbs in the peanut butter. The carbs can add up quickly so keep in mind 2 tablespoons of all natural no sugar added peanut butter contains 4 net carbs.
What snacks can I have on the Keto diet?
You can eat these peanut butter cookies on the keto diet plus, sliced cucumbers, pork rinds, cheese, avocados, bacon, and macadamia nuts.
Is erythritol the same as stevia?
No, they are not the same. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol often made from corn and can cause some gut issues in some people. Erythritol can be used cup for cup when replacing sugar in a recipe. Stevia is ground up stevia leaves that taste sweet like sugar but without the blood sugar affects of sugar. Stevia does not measure cup for cup when replacing sugar so it usually needs to be combined with a sweetener like erythritol to add bulk to a recipe.
How can I make these Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies Paleo friendly?
Switch the peanut butter for almond butter or cashew butter and use coconut palm sugar instead of erythritol.
