Recipe Steps

steps 3

11 min

  • Step 1

    Line a 7” by 5” oven-safe dish with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. In a medium mixing bowl, add the almond flour, melted butter, sweetener, and peanut butter. Mix to combine until well incorporated. Add the mixture into the prepared dish and flatten to form an evenly smooth top surface and set aside.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    In the meantime, in a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and microwave at 30 seconds intervals until melted, stirring between the intervals. Pour the melted chocolate over the peanut butter mixture and spread to coat the top surface evenly. Place the dish in the fridge for about 2 hours until it hardens.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Remove the dish from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature for about 20 minutes. Remove the bar dough from the dish by flipping the dish onto a surface lined with parchment paper with the peanut butter side facing up. This makes it easier to cut through since the chocolate is hardened. Cut the bars into 12 squares and store any leftovers in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
    Step 3

    Very delicious had to use more than 1/2 cup chocolate to cover the peanut butter mix. Definitely a winner in our house.

      Whoa. Seriously good treat! Made in muffin pan with cupcake liners. May need a bit more chocolate to peanut butter ratio but will make again! Yum.

        Perfect tasty snack, but recommend topping melted chocolate with sea salt.

              I made these as cupcakes in paper with a dollop of the chocolate on top. No sticky hands

                These taste like a Reese’s cup! I followed the recipe exactly using the brands I had on hand I used Let’s Bake Believe sugar free melting wafers from Walmart and Aldi brand natural unsweetened peanut butter.

                  OMG… so good. As some of the contributors said. Just a little less butter, only 50g. A tiny sprinkle of sea salt. I used cup cake liners - I only had crunchy peanut butter and Lindt 85% dark chocolate to hand, so maybe the carb count wasn’t spot on… Made 12… they looked and tasted just like Reese’s. Defo make again as they satisfy my sweet craving

                        Because of the Allulose scare I used 2 T Splendid Allulose…. Not 4 T. And the milk chocolate chips with no added sugar…delish! Just like Reese’s Peanut Butter cups!

                          Omg this is sooo good! Next time though I will add less butter as I do not feel that much is really needed and maybe some coconut 🥥 for a taste. Love it!

                            These are good. I added a pinch of chilli flakes to my chocolate and topped it with sea salt. Except one bar weighs about 32 grams that’s more than 10 grams over. I used the correct size tin and everything

                                I cheated and just used Sugarfree chocolate fudge icing from the store. Very fast and easy. Delicious!

                                        I may have use a bit too much PB because they were very soft and required refrigeration to firm them up enough to eat. I also had to sub a combo of 100% cacao chocolate bar with 94% cacao chocolate bar for the SF chocolate chips, as the only SF chocolate chips I could find still had 7g net carbs. But the flavor was really good. My keto DIL and my non-keto hubby also really liked them.

                                            I love this recipe. I live in UK and can easily get PB that’s 100% peanuts. No palm oil. Super tasty and much better for you. There’s loads of types. Also I use 85% Lindt and add some chilli flakes / chilli powder. And sprinkle sea salt on top. YUM!

                                              I’ve made these a few times now and LOVE them. One tip…Grind a little sea salt on top of the peanut butter mixture before adding the chocolate. Perfect!!
