butter, brown sugar, powdered sugar in mixing bowlHow To Make No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

  1. Line parchment paper into an 8 x 8 inch baking dish.
  2. Place butter, brown sugar and powdered sugar into a large mixing bowl. Mix until butter is incorporated into sugar and powdered sugar. It will not be creamy so no need to over mix. Stir in peanut butter and mix until dough forms. Dough will be stiff, mix until ingredients are combined. Press dough into prepared baking dish and either freeze for 30 minutes or refrigerate for a couple hours before adding melted chocolate.
  3. When dough is firm, lift parchment sides out of pan and onto a counter top. Place chocolate melts into a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted and smooth. Spread melted chocolate evenly over peanut butter bars. Chocolate will set up quickly because peanut butter is cold. Work quickly as you spread chocolate. Use a knife to cut into squares. Serve bars chilled.

Is There A Keto Version I Can Make?

Yes! Substitute the brown sugar with the Lakanta Monkfruit with Erythritol, Golden and use the Lakanta or Swerve powdered sugar instead of regular powdered sugar. Make sure you use a natural creamy peanut butter and use a sugar free dark chocolate chip to melt for the top. Lily’s or Choc Zero are my favorites. Use the same instructions with these substitutes for a keto friendly peanut butter bar.
