Tonights forecast: 99% chance of peanut butter
Low carb peanut butter cookies
We start with a very easy recipe that we at Blogzine make ourselves monthly: low-carb peanut butter cookies. Perfect for when you’re on the Keto diet!
– Peanut Butter (duh)
– 2 eggs
– Toppings like peanuts and dark chocolate
– Feel free to add sweet ingredients if you don’t necessarily eat keto
How to prepare the cookies:
You take a bowl and break the two eggs into the bowl. Both the yolks and whites we are going to use. Afterwards add three spoonfuls of peanut butter, mix until it is creamy and soft.
Once your mixture is ready, take a baking sheet with baking paper and spread your mixture in small circles on the sheet. You finish afterwards with nuts, peanuts, chocolate,…. the topping you wish!
You put the cookies in the preheated over at 220 degrees, let it bake for about 10 minutes until done (baking time depends on the type of peanut butter) and let them cool before you enjoy them. And that’s it! So easy but you make these delicious cookies.
Peanut butter sandwich with banana
With this recipe, let’s go back to our childhood. Because peanut butter spread on the sandwich with banana slices, and possibly a little cinnamon, is always a winner!
And this recipe is even easier than the previous one, because you just buy your favorite peanut butter, top a crusty slice of bread and finish with banana slices. For those who love spices: add some cinnamon. Or opt for a sweet finishing touch with chocolate sprinkles. Enjoy!
Blueberry Peanut Butter Smoothie
Adding peanut butter to your smoothie or yogurt bowl is certainly not unknown. It provides extra protein you need for a healthy lifestyle. And our favorite smoothie? That’s the peanut butter and blueberry version!
Surprising, isn’t it? The berries provide a fresh and sour touch that makes it taste great when combined with banana! To make it a full breakfast, you can also add oatmeal to your smoothie.
– One scoop Peanut butter
– 250 ml Almond milk
– A handful of blueberries
– One banana
– Half a cup of oatmeal
How to prepare it. In barely 5 minutes your shake will be ready! Take a large blender, add all the ingredients to it and blend everything until it forms a creamy consistency. And ready!
