The most abundant ingredient in this dessert is Perfect Keto Nut Butter – which has almost too many benefits to count – and is made with macadamia nuts, cashews, coconut butter, and MCT oil.
MCT oil is made up of MCTs, or medium-chain triglycerides. They are a type of saturated fatty acid. These fatty acids are the ideal source of energy because they don’t require any other enzymes to be absorbed by the body. This means that your body can use them almost immediately for energy.
Another ingredient that is gaining more popularity is coconut butter. Both MCT oil and coconut butter are abundant in lauric acid. Like its fellow fatty acids, lauric acid has the ability to kill microorganisms and prevent further growth of harmful bacteria.
Looking for a new dessert to try that is sure to satisfy that sweet tooth? Give these keto nut butter cups a shot. With all of their health benefits and healthy fats, they make the perfect treat for anyone looking to indulge on keto.
