No bake peanut butter bars healthy dessert

You know how much I love healthy sugar free sweet treats, especially no bake bars, remember that no bake cookie dough bar a while ago? Well, those no bake peanut butter bars are even better. The recipe is very much inspired by the previous one, except that I used powdered sugar free sweetener in this recipe – lots of you struggle to buy sugar free liquid monk fruit syrup so I thought it might be better. Also, no almonds flour here, only coconut flour. All you need to make the peanut butter layer are 3 simple ingredients:


  • peanut butter – I use 100% natural peanut butter with no oil added, no sweetener added made with 100% peanuts.
  • sugar free powdered sweetener: powdered erythritol or monk fruit both work well with the same ratio. Use the one you prefer. Both have no carbs, they are sugar free and keto friendly.
  • coconut flour – please don’t replace by almond flour or anything else. You will need a very different amount and the texture won’t be the same.

Taste like no bake peanut butter cookies in a bar!

I am very struggling to order my favorite sugar free chocolate bars from USA right now. All the website who deliver in New Zealand are out of stock. That is ok, I can make my own sugar free chocolate layer using a combo of simple ingredients we all have in our pantry on a keto low carb diet.

So this is all you need, just 4 ingredients:

  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • extra virgin coconut oil – use unrefined coconut oil if you don’t like the flavor of coconut
  • peanut butter – I used the same as above, no added things, pure peanut butter
  • sugar free powdered sweetener – as above, monk fruit or erythritol

So here we are, we just made no bake peanut butter bars healthy, sugar free, gluten free and vegan. I really think I am gonna serve those on Easter day. My mum will be home, she is type 2 diabetic and she will love a sugar free treat.


I hope you guys enjoy this recipe too. As always, share a pic with me on Instagram if you try those. I will love to see your creation.

XOXO Carine

Peanut butter layer

Chocolate Peanut butter layer


  • In a medium mixing bowl, add peanut butter, coconut flour and powdered sugar free sweetener of your choice.
  • Combine with a spatula, then knead with your hand to form a consistent peanut butter dough.
  • Transfer the peanut butter dough into a rectangle loaf baking pan covered with a piece of parchment paper. I used a cake loaf pan size: 9 inches x 5 inches X 1.8 inches.
  • Press the dough to cover the bottom of the pan evenly. Use a spatula to smooth the top.
  • Bring the pan in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate peanut butter layer.
  • In a small mixing bowl add peanut butter and coconut oil. Microwave 30 seconds, or bring on the stove for 1 minute under low heat, stirring constantly to combine both ingredients.
  • Stir in powdered sugar free sweetener and unsweetened cocoa powder. Make sure you stir the mixture fast to avoid any lumps or otherwise gradually add the powdered ingredients stirring after each addition.
  • Remove the loaf pan from the freezer. Spread the chocolate layer on top of the peanut butter layer. It should set really fast as your base is very cold. Spread evenly using a spatula.
  • Freeze 30 minutes before slicing into 12 slices. Warm the knife blade under heat before cutting, it avoid the chocolate layer to break.


  • Those bars are soft and must be store in an airtight container in the fridge. Can store up to 4 weeks or freeze and eat frozen or defrost 30 minutes-1 hour before eating.

  1. 5 stars
    These are amazing. Thank you! I’m wondering what the saturated fat might be? Trying to figure out Weight watcher equivalent points

  2. Hello! Do you have any experience using maple syrup. I am not a fan of Stevia and other sugar replacements. Thanks!

    • Any liquid sweetener will work in this recipe, maple syrup is a great swap if you eat refined sugar free like brown rice syrup. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine.

  3. Hi, im going to try these for sure. Where abouts do you buy you monk fruit powder from? Thanks for your great recipes. They have inspired me to start eating healthy again.

    • You can buy owdered monk fruit here, you get 20% off if you use my coade sweetashoney at the checkout or buy crytal monk fruit and bring it into a powder in your blender ! Enjoy the bars. XOXO Carine.

      • Hi Carine, I live in Germany and can’t purchase the sugar product from the US website. I have at home erythritol but I am not sure it is the right kind since it is the very small grains kind. Is the “powdered sugar” the equivalent of “sucre glace”? In that case I will need to look for it on Amazon since I didn’t manage to find powdered sugar for diabetics in the shops. Can’t wait to try your recipe as soon as I have figured out which sugar I need to use, My husband loves peanut butter and I’m curious to see if my son will enjoy it too 🙂 XOXO Emilie

        • Hi Emily (BFF), You can find powdered erythritol on Amazon here. It is sugar free and diabetes friendly. It is basically the grainy erythritol, powdered into an icing sugar texture (like sucre glace texture in French). I am sure you are all going to love this bar, such a treat for peanut butter lovers like Oli. XOXO Carine.
