The easiest low carb peanut butter cup recipe

We’ve made the easiest low carb peanut butter cup recipe.

Our friend Maddy (who is one of our most favourite humans in the world) has been whipping up healthy peanut butter cups… and lucky us, we got to sample. They were so freaking yum that we were inspired to make our own low carb peanut butter cup recipe.

As you most probably know, nothing beats the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. However, we know peanuts are a common allergen so feel free to swap to almond butter, cashew butter, macadamia butter… you get it… any nut butter. 

We love these kinds of recipes, the ones where you can just chuck all the ingredients into a couple of bowls, mix and freeze. They are the easiest of all healthy treat recipes and this is why you will find a huge variety of easy raw treats on the Merrymaker blog and Get Merry App.

The app has over 500 easy and healthy recipes on it. All refined sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, grain free and lots of low carb options!

Another reason why we love these low carb peanut butter cups is that they make the best afternoon work snacks. We made a big batch at the start of the week and then stored in the freezer for a week of delicious PB cup afternoons. We LOVE our jobs, but everything is better with healthy raw treats… are we right, or are we right?

If you make the recipe let us know! Share your pics on Instagram and facebook.

If you LOVE this recipe you will also love these keto almond cups, this low fructose caramel slice recipe, oh these choc PB and raspberry cups are also delicious and this keto chocolate slice recipe! Mmm so yummy. 

Always merrymaking,
