When people hear that I am on the Keto diet, they have so many thoughts and opinions. Usually I am told that I am going to end up with a heart attack because I am eating fat; or I’m told that I’ll never be able to stick with it. Well, sure…I could have a heart attack, but not because I’m eating fat. I get blood work done a couple times a year and my numbers are just fine. As for sticking with it, I’m almost to the 2 year mark and I haven’t gained a single pound back. So I think I’m good in that area too! But, what if I told you that you can be on the Keto diet AND eat Keto chocolate peanut butter bites? Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well it’s not!

Halloween is coming up. One of my favorite candies, before I stopped eating sugar, was Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I used to confiscated all of them from my kids trick or treating stash and hide them in the freezer. The first Halloween, since being on the Keto diet, was a tad rough. It seemed like my kids got more peanut butter cups than they ever did, but I never ate one. Not a single one. This year, while my kids are eating their peanut butter cups, I will be enjoying my Keto chocolate peanut butter bites. The perfect Keto treat!
