These peanut butter cookies are a great choice for anyone on the keto diet. They’re also a delicious option for anyone who wants to enjoy the benefits of eating low-carb foods.
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate protein and very low carbohydrate diet that helps you lose weight quickly by forcing your body into ketosis–a natural metabolic state where it burns fat instead of carbs as its primary fuel source. As you can imagine, this means that eating foods high in carbohydrates can throw off your body’s ability to enter into this metabolic state (and thus prevent weight loss).
