Healthy Baking with Kids

One of the things that brings me pure joy in the kitchen is not just whipping up healthy recipes for myself, but also involving my kids in the fun! There’s something magical about passing down cooking skills and seeing their creativity spark. After I surprised my family with a decadent Low Carb Cheesecake for Valentine’s Day, my daughter couldn’t wait to share her own twist on it. And let me tell you, I was all ears! She excitedly proposed, “What if we add peanut butter?” Well, who am I to say no to such a brilliant idea?

We brainstormed, scribbled down a few notes, and dove into creating our very own Low Carb Peanut Butter Pie. With her love for the classic combo of peanut butter and chocolate, it was a no-brainer. Plus, let’s be real, adding that chocolate drizzle took it to a whole new level of fun—especially for little hands eager to help! According to my daughter, it’s our best dessert creation yet, but hey, I’ll leave that verdict up to you!

Are peanuts keto friendly and low carb?

I’m going to take a minute to answer a question that might have crossed your mind while munching on a handful of peanuts or adding peanut flour to your smoothie: “Are peanuts keto-friendly and low-carb?” Well, get ready to crack open the nutty truth!

The Lowdown on Peanuts

First things first, peanuts are packed with protein and healthy fats, making them a pantry staple for many keto enthusiasts. They’re crunchy, satisfying, and oh-so-versatile! But here’s the catch: while peanuts are indeed low in carbs compared to many other snacks, they’re not entirely carb-free.

Peanuts and Carbs: The Skinny

A one-ounce serving of peanuts typically contains around 5-6 grams of carbs. Now, if you’re keeping tabs on your daily carb intake (which, let’s be real, most of us keto moms are), this amount might seem like a dent in your carb budget. However, fear not! Peanuts also boast a good amount of fiber, which helps offset their carb content by contributing to a slower rise in blood sugar levels.

The Keto Verdict: Peanuts Pass the Test!

So, are peanuts keto-friendly? Absolutely! In moderation, peanuts can be a fantastic addition to your keto meal plan. Just be mindful of portion sizes to ensure you’re not unwittingly going over your daily carb limit. And hey, who doesn’t love a sprinkle of peanuts on their salad or a dollop of peanut butter in their smoothie?

Tips for Enjoying Peanuts on Keto

  1. Portion Control: Stick to a serving size of around one ounce (or roughly a small handful) to keep your carb intake in check.
  2. Pair with Protein: Combine peanuts with a protein source like cheese or turkey slices for a more satisfying snack that keeps you full longer.
  3. Choose Wisely: Opt for unsalted or lightly salted peanuts to avoid excess sodium and unnecessary additives.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to peanuts and the keto lifestyle, the verdict is clear: they can absolutely be part of your low-carb, high-fat journey. Just remember to enjoy them in moderation and balance them with other nutritious foods to keep your macros in check.

So go ahead, grab that jar of peanuts, and snack away guilt-free, knowing that you’re fueling your keto journey with a tasty and satisfying treat. After all, life’s too short to pass up on the crunchy, nutty goodness of peanuts!

How to Soften Cream Cheese

For this Low Carb Peanut Butter Pie, you will need 16 oz of softened cream cheese. There are several ways to soften cream cheese, so you can use whichever of the following methods you prefer:

1. Room Temperature:

The easiest way to soften cream cheese is to just let it sit out at room temperature for about 30-60 minutes before you need to use it. But don’t leave it out for too long, as it can spoil.

2. Microwave:

If you’re in a hurry, take the cream cheese out of its foil packaging and put it in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave it for about 10-15 seconds. If it’s still not soft, continue to microwave in 5-second intervals until it’s soft.

3. Warm Water Bath:

Place the sealed package of cream cheese in a bowl of warm water. Let it sit for 10 minutes to soften. This is the method I used.
