Nutritional Information uses Almond Butter.
If you are strict Keto these may not be right for you because they have approximately 4 net carbs per bite. We are new to keto and when I was coming up with the recipe I didn't realize how many carbs nut butter has! The bites are really big though, so you could easily half them and they they would only have 2 net carbs.
