Best of all, they only have 7 ingredients and take less than 30 minutes to make. They are the perfect low carb dessert recipe.
Almond flour: for this chocolate peanut butter bar recipe, I recommend using blanched almond flour or superfine almond flour. It will give these Easy Low Carb Sugar-Free Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto Bars a much better texture.
Sweetener: You can use any low carb sweetener you prefer, but my favorite is golden monk fruit. (I use this brand)
Sugar-free chocolate chips: I like to use sugar-free milk chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips. This is my favorite low carb, sugar-free chocolate chip.
Cream cheese: I used a full-fat cream cheese. You could also use mascarpone, or a nut based cream cheese for a dairy free option.
Step by Step Instructions
How to make Easy Low Carb Sugar-Free Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto Bars
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, mix the cream cheese with the egg until smooth.
STEP 2: To the mixing bowl, add almond flour, peanut butter, heavy cream, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
STEP 3: Using a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate chips into the mixture.
STEP 4: Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you sub coconut flour for almond flour?
A good rule of thumb is to substitute 1 cup of almond flour with ¼ of coconut flour and one additional egg for every ¼ cup of coconut flour. It may also be necessary to double the liquid called for in the recipe as well. If the mixture seems too dry, simply add more liquid, a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency. If your mixture is too wet, add additional coconut flour, mixing in 1 teaspoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency. That being said, I have not tested this recipe with coconut flour.
What can I substitute for monk fruit?
The monk fruit I use is a 1:1 ratio for regular sugar. You can use any low carb sweetener you prefer in this recipe.
