Low Carb Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites

My mom makes AMAZING peanut butter balls every holiday season. I request them as much as I can even when it’s not the Holidays. But, boy, do they do a number on the calories. So I took it upon myself to figure out a low carb version

Replacing the sugar with stevia definitely made a notable difference in the taste, but they’re still delicious. And if it’s too much of a difference for you then just replace with the stevia with 1/4 cup of sugar. You’ll gain more calories, but sometimes it’s worth it.

These are even good without the chocolate (another way to save calories). But they’re sticky so I’d roll them in chopped up almonds or coconut if that’s the route you’re wanting to go.

  1. Yum! I just made these. I don’t like stevia, so I used erythritol instead (1/3 cup granulated). It’s a super low glycemic all natural no goo sweetener that bakes just like sugar. I rolled them in sugar free mini chocolate chips. YUM! Thanks for this recipe!

  2. Use pb2 instead of peanut butter to save even more calories!

  3. What would be the nutritional values of these?
