Apples and peanut butter are a familiar, well-liked combination by many kids. Here is how to enjoy them on the ketogenic diet.
7 g coconut oil
7g European-style butter
5g peanut butter, Skippy Creamy Natural
17.7 g apple, no skin, sliced thin
Optional: 3–5 drops of flavors, such as caramel or chocolate, Bickford
After measuring all ingredients, combine the coconut oil, butter, and peanut butter in a small microwavable bowl. Heat until melted, about 30 seconds. Stir the mixture well to combine. Add optional flavorings if using. It will be the consistency of a thick liquid after heating. Allow it to cool to room temperature and it will thicken into a “peanut butter” consistency. Serve with the sliced apple.
Notes: You could also mince the apples very fine and freeze the mixture in silicone candy molds.
