These low carb no bake peanut butter bars are the ultimate keto snack! Sugar free and grain-free. So easy to make and my kids swear they taste like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!
Okay, I lied. Despite my claims of never making New Year’s Resolutions, I did actually make one this year. And so far, I am well on target to meet and possibly exceed that goal. Yay me! Of course, it helps that it’s not a resolution that requires any sort of personal deprivation or major self-sacrifice. I suck at those kind of resolutions and I give them up pretty quickly. But I tested the waters of this goal a little earlier and found to my surprise that is was fun and not nearly so hard as I thought. And being someone who doesn’t really do things by halves, I find myself jumping in with both feet. What is this resolution? Simply put: to bring my readers more low carb instructional videos for 2016.
I am having a ridiculously good time coming up with these little how-to videos for you. I am by no means a seasoned videographer and my shooting and editing skills leave a lot to be desired. But they’ve been so well received and people are such visual learners, it only makes sense to keep going.
So my first goal was to bring you 1 video per month but now I can see it will probably be more than that. Some of them will be live action and some of them will be based on still photographs, but either way you will get a really good visual idea of how to make some of my recipes. I am even going back and creating them for some of my older recipes too.
So there you have it. More low carb recipe videos for 2016. And should I slip and falter a bit, feel free to remind me of my resolution. I make no serious promises but I do intend to try my best. I resolve to try my best!

Peanut Butter Bars
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 3/4 cup peanut butter, melted
- 1/2 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener
- OR 3 tbsp THM Sweet Blend

- 1/4 tsp liquid stevia extract
- 2 cups peanut flour (the roasted, defatted variety)
- OR 2 cups THM Baking Blend

Peanut Butter Bars:
- Line an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with wax paper or parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, combine melted butter, melted peanut butter, sweetener, vanilla, and stevia. Stir in peanut flour until dough comes together (it will be like a dough, not like a batter).
- Press dough firmly and evenly into prepared baking pan. To really get it even, cover it with more wax paper or parchment paper and use a flat-bottomed glass or measuring cup to press).
- Melt chocolate and butter together in a heat proof bowl. You can do this in the microwave (short 30 second increments, stirring in between) or over a pan of barely simmering water.
- Pour over bars and use a knife or offset spatula to spread to the edges. Refrigerate 1 hour until set.
