Hi everyone, today I’m going to give you one of my favorite sweet treat recipes. I am going to give you the recipe for an awesome totally delicious peanut butter cup.
The best part about this recipe is that it tastes great and is low in carbohydrates and low in sugar. So if I ever get unusually hungry and craving something sweet I just eat one or two of these and my cravings go away.
If you are new to our medical weight loss program and you would like more information on our medically supervised weight loss program just call us and schedule your free medical weight loss consultation. Call us at 215-821-7336 and you can schedule your weight loss evaluation for any of our office locations.
Now here is that awesome recipe I told you about:
Low Carbohydrate Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
coconut oil – 2 tablespoons
unsalted grassfed butter – 2 tablespoons
all natural organic (preferably sugar free) peanut butter – 4 tablespoons
cocoa powder – 3 teaspoons
stevia – 3 green packets
vanilla extract or any other sugar free flavor (I really like caramel so I use a sugar free caramel syrup quite often)- 1 teaspoon
Full fat cream cheese one and a half tablespoons
If you have a hand mixer or blender I suggest that you use it for this recipe. Start by adding all of the ingredients into a microwavable save container and use your hand mixer to blend everything together. After everything is mixed nicely place it in your microwave and set this for 20 seconds. Then let it cool down, mix everything again and then place it back in the microwave for approximately 10 more seconds. At this point if it is too chunky or thick stir everything again and then set it back in the microwave for approximately all 10 – 30 seconds. After that take it out of the microwave, please make sure that you do not burn yourself. And pour the mixture into a mini cupcake pan. This many cupcake pan should have a serving size of 12. After pouring the mixture evenly into the 12 sections place it in your freezer for at least one hour. This recipe will make 12 many chocolate peanut butter cups and each of them will have approximately 1.25 grams of carbohydrates, approximately 7 grams of fat and about 1 gram of protein.
I really do hope you enjoy this recipe is much as I do. It is one of my go to snacks. And I really love that it taste just like a regular peanut butter cup but it does not have all of the bad sugar and carbohydrates. This is great for me because as a diabetic I have to be really careful when it comes to the sugars and amount of carbohydrates that I eat during the day.

So, if you have been treating with another weight loss Dr. and they have referred you to our office it is important that you know the medications that you have been taking.
When you come into our office you will be evaluated by our medical healthcare providers and they will work with you and give you the weight loss medications that they believe will help you get the best results. In addition to that; we will also review a sensible healthy meal plan to facilitate your weight loss. Taking the appetite suppressant medications should help decrease your hunger and your cravings but you still need to make the right food choices.
