Losing weight with the Keto diet seems to be at the top of everyone’s to-do list and rightfully so as it is clearly producing amazing results. When you google the search term “lose weight fast” or “lose weight easily“, quite a few results include the keto diet. It also is appealing to those of us who can adhere to a new lifestyle if that means, not really worrying about counting calories at every meal. It seems like a real solution for those who have tried losing weight with little success in the past. Eating low carb and increasing your fat intake can be a lot easier to accomplish when you have delicious options ready for when those cravings hit.

A common diet destroyer is having a sweet tooth that just won’t quit. That pesky little guy can make avoiding sugars quite difficult, That is if you aren’t prepared with the perfect keto snack to combat that craving. These 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Balls for Keto are the perfect way to stay on track while feeling like you are cheating on your keto diet.

One of the things that inspired this Chocolate Keto Peanut Butter Balls recipe is not having a lot of time. I wanted something chewy and decadent but didn’t have the time to make an elaborate keto-friendly snack. 

Chocolate Keto Peanut Butter Balls

I love peanut butter more than anyone should ever admit to and cream cheese is pretty close to perfect as well so I thought why not mix the two?

Chocolate Keto Peanut Butter Balls

Soften an 8 ounce brick of cream cheese and then mix it with one half of a cup cup of keto friendly peanut butter. After the two are combined, form the mixture into balls.

This last step adds the perfect crunch to these keto treats and will satisfy my chocolate craving fast. Roll the peanut butter cream cheese balls in cacao nibs. If you aren’t in love with the aftertaste of cacao nibs I would suggest using less than I did for this step.

I would encourage you to still give it a try this way because that crunch and chocolate flavor really pair well with the creamy peanut butter taste. If you hate cacao nibs, these keto peanut butter balls are pretty close to perfect all on their own without the addition of keto-friendly chocolate.

You could even melt the cacao nibs and then coat the balls with a keto candy coating if you would like but be sure to refrigerate the peanut butter balls after forming them and before dipping in chocolate. This will ensure they stay put together through the dipping process.

Keep these 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Balls for Keto in your freezer or refrigerator for about 4 hours before serving and up to a month if stored in the freezer.
