Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut Butter and Chocolate?! Yes Please!
*You can substitute any nut butter!
I used to love Peanut Butter Cups. When I started Keto, I always stayed away from the chocolate dipped desserts....because it seemed so hard and messy! I've found out that it's actually pretty easy!
These were a hit with the whole family. It makes a big batch, but they're perfect for the freezer!

Next time I'll roll them a little flatter
If you're looking to save on carbs, halve the chocolate. You can even just drizzle it on if you'd prefer.
I also decreased the flour from the initial recipe
Combining powdered Swerve and liquid stevia reduces the aftertaste
1 1/2 C Peanut Butter
3/4 C Coconut Flour
1/4 C Swerve minus 1 Tablespoon (we prefer powdered)
2 squirts of Stevia
1 tsp Vanilla
Pinch of Salt
1 1/2 C Chocolate Chips (to melt)
1 T Coconut oil or butter, softened
Combine all ingredients together. Roll into balls, flatten and freeze for about an hour. Melt chocolate and butter. Dip cookies in and let dry on parchment paper! Freeze leftovers.
