Sugar Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Day :)

As I’ve said before, I love cookies. 🙂 I love chocolate and peanut butter together even more.  Chocolate peanut butter ice cream is my all time favorite!  Oh my.  Bake me some brownies, cover them with peanut butter and chocolate frosting and you’ve got me for life!!

When I got my 2nd Thrive Market order last week, there was Swerve and Lily’s Sugar Free Chocolate Chips in the box.  The first thing I made was sugar free chocolate chip peanut butter cookies.  Mmmm good! The recipe I used is this one from my Pinterest board, pinned from www.gimmesomeoven.com.   There are only 4 ingredients for this recipe and one is sugar.  I used Swerve instead and you can get here for a great price.

Also, just a side note, the peanut butter I used was Skippy Natural. It does have 3 grams of sugar for 2 tablespoons.  So these aren’t completely sugar free, but almost.

The recipe is:

1 cup unsweetened natural peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup swerve
1/2 cup Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips

Mix it all together, form whatever size balls you want smash them and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350°

These are super quick and easy to make. I threw them together after dinner for the company we were hosting.

 

Since I was on a chocolate peanut butter kick and had some Lily’s Chocolate Chips left over.  I wanted to try making Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups again.  I made them the first time a few weeks back with unsweetened baking chocolate.  I didn’t add enough stevia to them and they were too bitter for me.   I really prefer semi sweet chocolate over any other kind.

I found this recipe on Pinterest.  The original recipe can be found at www.sugarfreemom.com.

You will have to check out her site.  She is pretty amazing and puts in a lot of hard work creating the best sugar free recipes.

These peanut butter cups are the bomb! (“Literally she’s not joking.” -Micah)  (Good grief, that’s what I get for letting my 16 yr old edit!) They will from now on be a staple in my home for sweet treats.  I’m going to have to try to double the recipe next time, because they do not last long.

Ingredients
5 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, or Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
2 tablespoons butter, divided or coconut oil
4 – 6 packets stevia, if you are using baking chocolate you may want to increase the stevia
2 tablespoons unsweetened natural peanut butter
2 teaspoons flour
2 droppers liquid stevia
In a microwave safe glass bowl or on the stove, melt together the chocolate with 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil.
Add stevia packets to taste.
In another bowl mix together the rest of the ingredients and stir until smooth.
Place 1 teaspoon of chocolate into each mold.
Spoon a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter onto each chocolate sauce in mold.
Top with one more teaspoon of chocolate on top to cover.

Refrigerate about an hour.

So far these are 2 of my favorite SF chocolate peanut butter recipes.  I hope you try them and check out the blogs I mentioned.
