Low-Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars Recipe!

Be Sociable, Share!

    These little treats have been one of my favorite (naughty) baked goods for years…unfortunately since they were made with confectioners sugar and graham cracker crumbs, I really could not modify into a healthier alternative and still make it taste the same….until….Ideal put out their new Confectioners Sugar made with xylitol!  How excited was I to find this little piece of baking heaven at my local grocery store!!?  So, it was back to the drawing board, and this is what I came up with!  Made them today, YUM!  They are definitely lower in carb which is key, but still a little higher in fat and cals, so keep it to one bar only!  Happy Holidays! ox Jill

    Ingredients:

    1 cup softened butter (2 sticks)
    2 cups pecan flour (or very finely chopped pecans)
    1-3/4 cup Ideal Confectioners sugar
    1 cup natural peanut butter
    4 oz baking chocolate (at least 70% dark)
    1/4 cup natural peanut butter
    1 tbsp xylitol or erythritol

    In large bowl, beat together butter, pecan flour and confectioners sugar
    Add 1 cup peanut butter and beat well
    Spread mixture in 9 x 12 inch pan (ungreased)
    Melt chocolate, along with 1/4 cup peanut butter (I use the microwave and melt it all in a bowl together)
    Remove from microwave, add 1 tbsp xylitol or erythritol to sweeten
    Pour chocolate mixture over the pb mixture in pan until it covers the whole thing with a thin layer
    Cover and place pan in the fridge for at least 1 hour to harden
    Cut into bars (makes 24), and enjoy!
