Three No-bake, Blood Sugar-friendly Nutty Desserts
We haven’t shared any recipe desserts in a while. We love dessert. It’s hot outside and, while we want something sweet, we don’t want to turn on our oven. This week we wanted to offer you nutty recipes with under 150 calories and less than five grams of carbs. It’s been a while since we looked at nuts. Many fruits are in season, and it’s hard to think beyond them. But, it’s important to keep your diet varied. Nuts are delicious all year round, and we have three great desserts that won’t force you to heat up your kitchen and will help you satisfy your sweet tooth!
Ferrero Rocher Cookies
These fabulous cookies have only four ingredients! They can be refrigerated for up to four weeks. With 103 calories, and under 4.5 grams of carbs, this tasty treat can be part of your day without worry! Get the recipe here!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Squares
This treat is high in fat but with a cup of peanut butter and ten ounces of butter that’s hardly surprising. If you are looking to cut back on fat, this recipe isn’t for you. But, with only 130 calories and three grams of carbs, if all you’re concerned about is carbohydrates and calories, they might be a hit with you. The recipe says to melt the chocolate in a double boiler but, we think, if that much heat is just too much for you, that a microwave can be used just as easily. Get the recipe here!
We hope these recipes brighten your day if you’re looking for something sweet and low in carbohydrates!
