The secret is in the peanut butter sauce!

I know adding peanut butter to a burger may sound a little strange, but sometimes a savory burger just needs a little something sweet to balance it out… this is the perfect sauce for that! The peanut butter sauce takes this burger to the next level, and even more so when it’s paired with bacon! 🤤

Recipe tips for making the ultimate keto peanut butter burger:

  • Make sure to use the right amount of fat content in your ground beef. Try avoiding anything leaner than 90% as you want that fat in your burger. The perfect combo is 80% lean to 20% fat.
  • If you have a Blackstone Griddle (Collin loves hers and I own one and love it, too!), you may have already made smash burgers. 😋 If you’re not familiar with this easy method, you simply keep your ground beef rolled up into a ball and then press down on the griddle creating that perfect thin burger.
  • If you have a gas or charcoal grill, you’ll want to make sure you make a thumbprint in the middle of the burger.  This helps the burger from puffing up in the center and shrinking the sides.
  • Only flip your burger once — no need to keep turning back and forth! You’ll lose out on the juices and that’s where all the flavor is.
  • Just like steak and chicken, let that burger rest for a few minutes before biting into it, this really helps seal in all the flavors.
  • I’m serving my keto peanut butter burgers with homemade keto buns, but you could totally serve yours bunless, lettuce-wrapped, or any other low-carb way you please.

Serve this peanut butter burger any way you want!

You can eat this juicy burger bunless, wrapped in lettuce, or on one of our homemade keto buns, which are super easy to make. I made a little extra peanut butter sauce to keep in the fridge so I could add it to leftover burgers. 🙌

  3. leslie-1

    I’m super excited to try this, but is there something I can substitute for the brown Swerve?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Leslie! You can use any keto friendly brown sugar substitute! Hope this helps❤

  4. Shirley Yeo

    I was skeptical too, but gave it a whirl! I LOVE pb but found this a little rich and I only ate 1/2 of a much smaller burger.
    The sauce is great with thinly sliced napa cabbage wrapped in a Jicama wrap (Trader Joe’s) with 1/2 hard boiled egg! 🙂
    Yummy!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Sounds like a great combo, Shirley Yeo! I love those Jicama wraps and will give it a try!
