Slow Cooker – Peanut Butter Fudge
By: I Love My Instant Pot Keto Diet by Sam Dillard
The sweetest thing about these wonderful nuggets of chocolately, nutty goodness is that the sweetness doesn’t come from sugar! It also takes advantage of that handy Slow Cook button on your Instant Pot.
This particular recipe has been rediscovered by the crew here at the Instant Pot, and we just can’t get enough of it. If blueberries aren’t your thing, you can totally customize it with any frozen fruit you’d like. (Hello cherries!) And to answer the question we know you’re thinking: yes, it really, really does taste like cheesecake. Yet another reason to keep that Instant Ace Blender on the counter all the time.

If cheesecake ice cream isn’t your speed, how about a more traditional cheesecake? We love how easy it is to turn this into individual portions in the Instant Pot by baking them in Mason jars. Genius! You will certainly thank yourself for this.
If you’ve never heard of a fat bomb before, don’t worry: it’s a good thing. The only thing explosive about these bombs is the taste, since these sweet confections are low carb but high flavour. This one gives you all the joy of a cinnamon bun without the carbalicious bloat. How great is that?
Oh sure, you could use a spoon and a bowl and put the effort into making muffins the old-school way, but aren’t you supposed to be treating yourself? Discover the decadent pleasure of no-effort baking with a blender. Mix, pour, bake, enjoy. Now that’s a treat.
It’s sugaring-off season up here at Instant Pot HQ, where we are literally surrounded by sugar maple trees, and that means there’s a lot of sweet, sweet syrup flowing around here. There are only so many pancakes a person can eat, so we’re always looking for good ways to enjoy maple syrup. This way, friends, is very good.
If you’re like us, you’re hooked on making yogurt in your Instant Pot so you’ve got a surplus of yogurt in your fridge. We love baking with it. There’s just something so wonderful about how the whey reacts with baking soda to make things so fluffy and good. This recipe is a great example of that.
Yet another recipe using yogurt to make your baked treat even more of a treat, this banana bread is also an example of why baking in the Instant Pot is so wonderful: never again worry about your bread being too dry on the outside. The steam from pressure cooking keeps it all nice and moist.

We love how different diets are embracing the Instant Pot. Bakers following the Keto diet are particularly ingenious about inventing low-carb and sugar-free versions of traditional treats, such as these amazing cupcakes.
