Is peanut butter keto?
Nut butters are a great low carb source of food as they are high in fat and protein. Peanut butter is in many low carb recipes but technically it is a legume and can be inflammatory for some people. However, peanuts are closer to nuts in nutrition, making peanut butter keto-friendly.
If you are using peanut butter in your low carb recipes, make sure that you are using a natural butter with no added sugar. Or make your own by grinding peanuts in a food processor.
How to make keto no bake peanut butter cheesecake
I've used almond flour for the base and added sugar free cocoa powder for a chocolate flavour. Peanut butter and chocolate are a dream team flavour combination.
Place the cheesecake base in the freezer whilst the making the filing to quickly firm it.
No cheesecake would be complete without cream cheese! The peanut butter needs to be natural and as sugar free as you can fine. Allulose is used for the sweetener but any low carb sweetener can be used.
This no bake cheesecake does not use any gelatin, which is over found in no bake cheesecakes to keep them firm. Thickly whipped cream and peanut butter holds this little beauty together!
For the topping, I used a chocolate ganache to drizzle over it, then sprinkled chopped salted peanuts on top. You could serve this low carb peanut butter cheesecake plain, or decorate it with whipped cream.
