Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars Recipe:

Ingredients: For the crust:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered low-carb sweetener (e.g., stevia, erythritol, or monk fruit)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the peanut butter layer:

  • 1 cup sugar-free peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered low-carb sweetener
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

For the chocolate topping:

  • 4 ounces sugar-free dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Instructions:

  1. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper, leaving some overhang for easy removal later. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, cocoa powder, powdered sweetener, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined and the mixture resembles a crumbly dough.
  3. Press the crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Use the back of a spoon or your fingers to firmly pack the crust.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar-free peanut butter, powdered sweetener, and melted coconut oil until smooth and well combined.
  5. Spread the peanut butter mixture evenly over the crust in the baking dish.
  6. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chopped sugar-free dark chocolate and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  7. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the peanut butter layer, spreading it evenly to cover the entire surface.
  8. Place the baking dish in the refrigerator and chill for at least 2 hours, or until the bars are firm and set.
  9. Once the bars are fully set, use the parchment paper overhang to lift them out of the baking dish. Cut them into squares or bars of your desired size.
  10. Serve the keto chocolate peanut butter bars chilled and enjoy!
