No Bake Chewy Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

Keto Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter SquaresThese No Bake Chewy Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares are SO good. 

I made this recipe multiple times trying to get the right consistency. I was going for the same texture as my favourite Built Bars

These turned out very similar! The texture is slightly less chewy than a built bar or nougat  but for me it's perfect because they don't get stuck in my teeth as much! 

I made these as protein bars but my parents happily ate them for dessert. They really enjoyed the chewy center with the crunch from the chocolate coating. 

Overall these make a perfect high protein, high fibre treat but I'd definitely eat them as a dessert any day.

P.S Did I mention they are super easy to make?

Ingredients In Low Carb Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

  • Almond Flour– I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. But it bakes well in any recipe. **UPDATE** lately I’ve switched over to THIS brand of powdered sweetener because of trouble ordering the first one so you can order whichever is easier for you!
  • Gelatin Powder – I actually use the Organika brand most of the time but couldn’t find it on the US Amazon store and seeing as most of my followers are from the states, I would recommend you try this one instead (I’ve also used it before).
  • Xanthan gum Gives baked goods (and no baked goods) more elasticity and chewiness like traditional flour would.
