An easy low carb peanut butter mousse recipe that goes great with sugar-free chocolate chips mixed in. And, it doesn’t require a lot of time or ingredients.
Have you ever looked in your pantry and gone through to check expiration dates? I try to do this every few months because I tend to stock up on certain ingredients when there are sales.
While going through the pantry this week, I found a jar of peanut butter that had an expiration date one month away. I do love my peanut butter and am surprised that I hadn’t even opened this particular jar.
It’s been busy so I wanted to find a recipe that wouldn’t require any baking. I had been wanting to whip up a quick batch of chocolate mousse and thought a low carb peanut butter mousse would be a great compliment.

I may try a chocolate chip peanut butter pie next time. To make it, I’d just mix the chips into the mousse and spread it into a chocolate cookie crumb crust.
This time, I layered dark chocolate mousse with the low carb peanut butter mousse to make a yummy layered parfait dessert. If you are a peanut butter lover, you must give this recipe a try!
