Keto No Bake Peanut Butter And Jelly Bars

These Keto No Bake Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars are such a delicious low carb dessert!!

They are super filling, one piece is really all you need.

These are so reminiscent of my favourite PB and J sandwiches from my childhood. My Dad, the ultimate peanut butter and jelly fan thought these were great as well. 

The best part is how simple they are to make. Only one bowl and NO BAKING required. My favourite kind of keto dessert recipe.

The peanut butter layer of these bars is made with a combination of natural peanut butter and almond flour along with some sugar free maple syrup and a hint of cinnamon. This makes for a super creamy/rich layer. 

The jelly filling you can either use homemade keto friendly jam OR no sugar added store-bought jam.

Put it all together and these are insanely good. Any peanut butter and jelly lovers' dream.

Tips For Making Keto No Bake Peanut Butter And Jelly Bars

  • Make sure your dough is crumbly but soft enough that it can be formed together into a chunk if you squish it in your hand. 
  • When slicing your bars, if you find them crumbling still, feel free to freeze them beforehand. 

Can I Make These Low Carb No Bake Peanut Butter And Jelly Bars Without Almond Flour?

  • Yes, you can make these with coconut flour (although, I recommend almond flour if you can get your hands on it/do not have an allergy!) Instead of using 1 1/2 cups of almond flour, you can replace it with 1/2 cup or 56g of coconut flour (add another 1/2-1 tbsp if the batter isn't thick enough).
