Low Carb Coffee Peanut Butter Slices

These tasty peanut butter slices are based on a recipe from The Body Coach Graduate Plan, with a little twist.

This is my method for making these delicious snacks that will give you that little chocolate hit when you need it but are also low carb.

And what’s more, who doesn’t love peanut butter slices?

You can make these as either one slab cut into 16 squares, or turn them in Reece’s Cup style snacks by using cupcake cases.

A little tip if you’re going to use cupcake cases, try to use silicone cases so that your cups stay intact and you won’t end up eating paper too.

I must admit, I love finding new recipes. My fitness journey has opened up so many new delicious options for low carb recipes, lower fat recipes, and indeed options for healthy snacks.
