Have you ever found yourself craving for a season to already get here? Well, that’s what birthed this recipe for keto peanut butter bars. A delicious easy low carb peanut butter treat.
It’s September and the weather should be pointing to the fall season. Well, here in South Florida, we ain’t about that. We’ve been experiencing 90 degree days, with the humidity feeling like 1000 percent.
The fall season seems like a fantasy in my neck of the woods.
I’m not completely sure why fall is my favorite season, especially since it’s really non-existent here. And here is where I’ve lived most of my life.
Despite this, I still love everything about what the fall season represents. You know the start of a new school year, pumpkin latte, coming up with a keto peanut butter bar recipe and even the cheesy fake fall leaves in the department stores.
I did warn you that I LOVED everything about this season.
For some reason I associate peanut butter also with the fall season. Again, maybe it’s about all those peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I had as a kid at school.
All I know is that my craving for peanut butter is what brought this recipe to light.
You see I already have a recipe for peanut butter cookies, but the convenience of cookie bars can’t be beat. Which is why this recipe for keto peanut butter bars is a breeze to make.
Back when I used to create regular peanut butter bars, I used to do so with my eyes closed. Well, that’s what this low carb peanut butter bar recipe offers.
You can of course substitute the peanut butter for your favorite nut butter and still have an amazing keto treat.
Perhaps, it’s the idea of fresh starts that grabs at my heart? You see in the Jewish calendar, September marks the beginning of a New Year. As a Christian, I guess in some ways I am drawn to this instinctively, after all my Lord is a Jew.
Recently, I realized that I do what most people call “spring cleaning” during the month of September. It’s something I’ve been doing for years. Sure I also do the traditional spring cleaning but for some reason I feel this urgent pull to do the same in the month of September.
Am I the only one who goes through this?
Making Room For Blessings
For the past few weeks, I have been getting rid of a lot of unnecessary things, organizing what I want to keep. And doing a lot of redecorating.
I must admit I am enjoying every second of the process. My family? Probably not so much, since I tend to disrupt the peace with my desire to get everything just right.
During this month I also tend to do a lot of soul-searching, making sure that my heart is in the right place. I re-evaluate the goals I set in January and determine if any changes need to be made.
Fall is a season I look forward to for all these reasons and more, even if it don’t get to see the turning of leaves or cool breezes.
So how do I celebrate fall in South Florida? Well, it usually involves baking something that brings the scents of the season into my home.
Does it mean I will probably be doing so with my air-conditioner on blast? That’s a given, but it will not deter me from celebrating fall in Miami.
I have several low carb keto recipes that are considered fall recipes. I thought I would share just a few to assure you that my love of everything fall is genuine.
How about you? What’s your favorite season of the year? Why do you think you’re drawn to it?
