Peanut Butter Keto
Low-carb food – the benefits at a glance!
You’ve probably noticed that I advocate a low-carbohydrate life. I am convinced – and with many other experts – that low- carbohydrate food causes you to lose weight, get a healthier body, have more energy and ultimately feel better in your skin.
And more importantly: that you can actually keep up! If low- carbohydrate food really becomes your lifestyle , you can continue to stick to it all your life, unlike many other ‘diets’. In this article I like to give you the benefits of low-carbohydrate food.
14 Benefits of Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies
- Lose weight
A low-carbohydrate diet is not really a diet at all – it’s a lifestyle ! A way of life with which you will finally really lose weight.
- No more hunger
By eating low carbohydrate you do not feel hunger yourself. On the contrary, you can continue to eat enough and at the same time lose weight , get energy and look healthy. You replace the products with unhealthy carbohydrates with products that contain a lot of good fats and proteins. This keeps you feeling full for longer and you have less need to snack.
- You stay slim
Do you find it so difficult to stay on weight after a diet? Often many women fall back into their old habits and the kilos just fly on again. But not if you keep an eye on your carbs. Once you eat low-carbohydrate and – as mentioned – low-carb food really becomes your lifestyle, it’s much easier to make healthy choices and the chances of you staying slim are much bigger! It is important that you learn to make healthy choices. You can then continue to apply that for the rest of your life.
- Your skin becomes visibly healthier
Not only on the inside you become healthier with a low- carbohydrate diet ; you can see that from the outside too! Your skin will be visibly healthier, it will shine again and will stay ‘young’ longer. Low-carbohydrate food reduces inflammation and makes your immune system work better. And because your skin is going to shine you will shine again!
- You have a lot more energy
Carbohydrates deliver energy quickly. Your body converts the carbohydrates that come in into glucose and uses that as energy. Unfortunately, this energy is only of short duration and you quickly end up in an energy dip. The fluctuations of the sugar level make you feel tired and lifeless. By eating less carbohydrates, your sugar level will remain more stable.
- No after dinner dips anymore
(Fast) carbohydrates – think of bread and pasta – cause after dinner dips. After eating carbohydrates and sugars your blood sugar level rises. This tries to counter your body by lowering your blood sugar level again. This makes you tired and lifeless after eating this. By taking less carbohydrates you remain fitter and more alert.
- Getting rid of your sugar addiction
Are you also such a sweet tooth? Then you can eat from your sugar addiction by eating low carbohydrates! Carbohydrates are in fact a form of sugar. If you eat low-carbohydrate, you can not eat cookies, sweets, chocolate and junk food. Do you keep this long enough, then you get used to it and you can at a given moment without those sugars. You will not even want it anymore!
- Change your lifestyle
I’ve mentioned it a few times: low-carb food is not a diet – it’s a lifestyle!
- Eating differently, not less
You do not have to eat less with low-carbohydrate food, that is not the intention at all. You are not supposed to starve yourself. Eating different is the key here. Replace your carbohydrates with many proteins and healthy fats.
- Tasty recipes
There are so many delicious low-carbohydrate recipes that you do not even want anything else. Take a look at my recipes! How about a tasty tuna salad? Or a low-carbohydrate chocolate chia pudding?
- Irritating symptoms disappear
Many complaints (which are often immensely annoying) disappear when you eat low carbohydrate. Do you ever suffer from stomach pain, heartburn and headaches or do you have intestinal problems? Then try to eat less carbohydrates! Chances are that your complaints will decrease over time or even disappear altogether.
- Better cholesterol and blood pressure
By eating low on carbohydrate you improve your blood pressure and cholesterol, so you reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Your cholesterol is influenced by, among other things, triglycerides , which is caused by carbohydrates in your blood. By eating less carbohydrates, you can bring your triglycerides down.
- It helps against diabetes
By means of a low-carbohydrate diet you can better control your blood sugar. This can mean that you need less medication and there are even people who have completely got rid of their diabetes by taking less carbohydrates!
- Do you have insulin resistance
In the case of insulin resistance – the precursor of diabetes – low-carbohydrate food can also be the solution. Your body makes insulin at the moment you ingest fast carbohydrates, so that they are converted into energy. If you constantly get carbohydrates inside, your body is constantly working to convert it. This way you can become less sensitive to insulin at a given moment.
Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
What has changed with our food?
Man’s dietary pattern has changed drastically over the centuries. The greatest changes, however, occurred in the last century, when mass production increased in size. Because with the arrival of machines one could produce more food, and preferably with cheap ingredients, to maximize the profit. But also the renovation of natural food, such as vegetables and fruit, changed. Vegetables should grow faster and bigger, and that the nutritional values deteriorate, there was a manufacturer not involved.
Cookies without oven
Even though there would be evidence that people were already cooking, baking, and grilling their food during the Stone Age, there is of course nothing more than an easy recipe for cookies that you do not have to bake. So called ‘no bake’ cookies. Especially in a Berlin mini-apartment where the temperatures in the summer rise significantly, it is nice if the oven does not have to. And: you can also make them at the campsite!
This creation consists of only four ingredients and is made in no time. The walnut cookies only need some time to stiffen in the fridge.
The walnut biscuits are entirely made according to the Paleo standard, so without flour. And that means that these walnut cookies are gluten-free and vegan too. And low-carbohydrate of course! This way you can enjoy a little treat with your coffee or tea without worrying. Whether or not with a good book.
Peanut Butter Cookies Keto
I have to say that these cookies are for real diehard peanut butter fans. The cookies have a full sweet peanut butter taste, are crunchy on the outside and a little harder on the inside. For some extra crispiness I rolled them through the sugar. In addition, these cookies are gluten- and lactose-free!
My friends pointed out this Peanut Butter Cookies recipe. I almost did not believe how easy it was: a cup of peanut butter, a cup of sugar and 1 egg = peanut butter biscuits. I had to try it myself! And still the same evening. I have converted everything for you into the recipe.
Does this recipe seem too peanut- like to you or do you want to experiment a bit? Then vary with some flour/almond flour, cinnamon or pieces of chocolate.
Keto Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
- 250 grams of peanut butter
- 200 grams of granulated sugar
- 1 egg (L)
And that’s how you do it
– Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and top with a baking tray with parchment paper
– Take a mixing bowl and mix the peanut butter with the sugar. Add the egg after 1 minute and mix until it is one whole.
– Now make balls of the peanut butter batter and press them flat on the baking sheet with a fork, so you get the diamond pattern. Optionally, you can still dab the cookies in a bowl with sugar, so they get a crispy layer of sugar.
– Bake the cookies in 12 minutes. Let them cool well before you eat them, otherwise they are still completely soft.
