Keto Microwave Peanut Brittle

KETO MICROWAVE PEANUT BRITTLEThis keto microwave peanut brittle is crunchy, sweet, salty..Basically everything you envision peanut brittle to be minus the sugar!

Some ingredients I’d like to highlight:

  • Sukrin High Fibre Syrup – This is a low carb substitute for corn syrup, honey, regular syrup etc. It’s also referred to as IMO syrup. It’s great for giving baked goods a soft and gooey center with a slightly crisp crust. It’s also great for creating low sugar / low carb candies and no-bake desserts such as this one!
  • Monkfruit/Erythritol Granular Sweetener – This is my favourite sweetener! I’ve tried Truvia, Splenda, Swerve, Stevia, Stevia/Erythritol blend.. and I like them..yet I always come back to the Monkfruit/Erythritol combination. It’s truly the closest thing to real sugar and it comes in both a powdered and granular form!

Tools:

  • Nutritional Scale – This is by far the BEST nutritional scale I’ve ever purchased. It’s been with me for years and you hardly ever have to change the batteries.. if you are looking to track your calories and macronutrients better or be more precise with your baking.. I HIGHLY recommend this scale.

Notes:

  • If you know your microwave heats quite quickly, I may reduce the final cooking to the 3 minutes to avoid burning. (My microwave isn’t the best!)
  • When you add the vanilla extract, be extremely careful because sometimes the mixture can splatter a bit.
  • You are working with a very hot liquid so wear oven-mitts as often as you can and keep your face away from the bowl to avoid getting burnt!
