Peanut butter is a favorite spread for many reasons. It’s not only creamy, crunchy, and tasty, but it’s also rich in protein, unsaturated fat, and iron, among other nutrients. For many people with diabetes, they include peanut butter in their diet because it’s low glycemic — it doesn’t raise blood sugar abruptly.
Versatility is another reason for its popularity. The recipes below prove that you can use peanut butter in preparing different low-carb treats with another ingredient you love: chocolate!
