Description

These keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are like a cross between a chewy chocolate chip cookie and a blondie, all while being gluten free, sugar-free and low carb. Best of all, they only have 7 ingredients and take less than 30 minutes to make. They are the perfect low carb dessert recipe.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour (I use this brand)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons granular monkfruit, more if you like it sweeter (I use this brand) Code PEACE for 20% off
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I use this brand)
  • 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips (I use this brand)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, mix the cream cheese with the egg until smooth.
  3. To the mixing bowl, add almond flour, peanut butter, heavy cream, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate chips into the mixture.
  5. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown. The center might still be a little soft, but it will continue cooking as it cools.
  7. Let cool completely. Slice into 16 equal squares.
