What Low Carb Sweetener To Use For This Recipe?
The company Better Body Foods has come out with a fantastic product called Monkfruit Blend.
Monkfruit blend sweetener is easy to use for a couple reasons.
First, you can buy it at your local Walmart!
Shout out to Walmart for starting to carry some healthy products.
Secondly, the taste of Monkfruit is pretty amazing!
It doesn’t seem to give off such a major cooling effect like so many sweeteners that contain erythritol.
Can I Use Oats In A Low Carb Recipe?
They are a good, healthy carb food.
It is recommended to have 1/4 cup of oats in a Fuel Pull or S setting on occasion.
These peanut butter no bake treats use 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats for the entire recipe.
In which case, you’ll hardly get any of of those carbs in a serving of this yummy dessert.
You would have to eat half the recipe to even eat 1/4 cup of oats.
So it’s safe to say that these peanut butter no bake treats are in the S category!
Is Ground Flaxseed Necessary?
It is not absolutely necessary to use ground flaxseed in this recipe.
The added benefits of flaxseed are great, so that is something to consider.
Here are just a few benefits you can receive from flaxseed:
