No-bake peanut butter bars, a quick keto 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, these 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. By the way, if you are struggling to find some sweeteners or want to convert from one sweetener to another, make sure you check out our sweetener conversion chart and tool! Also, no almonds flour here, only coconut flour. This makes the no bake peanut butter bar a quick keto dessert or a quick low-carb snack! 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 with almond flour or anything else. You would need a very different amount and the texture wouldn’t be the same.
Taste like no bake peanut butter cookies in a bar!
These bars wouldn’t be proper no bake chocolate peanut butter bars without a fair amount of sugar-free chocolate on top! There’s always the option to buy your sugar-free chocolate, but it’s more fun and more rewarding to do it yourself! So you can make your 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 use the same as above, nothing added, pure crushed peanuts
So here we are, we just made no-bake peanut butter bars a healthy, sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan dessert or snack. A great option for the whole family, done in just a few minutes, it’s the perfect quick keto snack!
Can I freeze no bake peanut butter bars?
Yes you can! Probably not for more than 4 weeks, but this quick keto dessert can definitely be frozen! Don’t microwave though, leave them defrost for 30-60 minutes in the fridge or at room temperature.

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.
Put 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 prevents the chocolate layer from breaking.
These bars are soft and must be stored 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.
Net carb per slice (if you cut the recipe in 12 large bars):net carbs 6.7g. For less carbs per serve, cut into 24 smalls bars, 3.4g net carbs
