December greetings! Like, how did it get to be December already?! I’m still gobsmacked by how fast time goes by, and how we’re already so deep into the holiday season.
Erik and I are celebrating what will be our last snowy Christmas, perhaps for a long time. 😉 We’re gearing up to move somewhere warmer, somewhere with less snow (and by that I mean none) and with more sun. Yeah!!
We’re still looking at different options, but looking to move back to the West Coast, where we both grew up. It’s time to go home, ya know? (Something about this time of year gets me all nostalgic and emotional.)
While we ponder what new beginnings next year has for us, let us first celebrate the holidays still ahead… today I’m sharing my favorite recipe for Keto Peanut Butter Bars.
Today’s keto chocolate peanut butter bars are low carb and keto-friendly. Bonus: they’re super easy to make and oh-so-ready to grace your holiday dessert table. Ready to no bake this? Let’s do it!
How to Make Keto Peanut Butter Bars
Before you even grab the keto peanut butter bar ingredients, make sure to line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or wax paper.
Make the Peanut Butter Layer
Add peanut butter, keto maple syrup and coconut flour to a medium mixing bowl. Stir and fold it all together until thickened into a dough ball. Drop the peanut butter dough ball into the center of your prepared baking pan.
Use a rubber spatula to smooth the peanut butter ball into an even layer.
Make the Chocolate Topping
Melt the keto chocolate chips and peanut butter together. Stir until it’s well mixed and smooth.
Pour the Chocolate Over the Peanut Butter
Pour your keto chocolate peanut butter topping over the peanut butter layer. Smooth the chocolate topping out over the peanut butter layer, creating an even chocolate topping.
Freeze, Slice and Enjoy
Freeze until firm. Then, slice and enjoy the best keto peanut butter bars ever! Wasn’t that easy?

How to Store Your Keto Peanut Butter Bars
Just for Day 1, make sure to keep your keto peanut butter bars in the refrigerator. The keto chocolate topping just needs to set. Day 2 and onward, go ahead and store your keto peanut butter bars at room temperature. Make sure to store the bars in an airtight container and out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources, which could melt the topping.
Feel free to store your keto chocolate peanut butter bars in the freezer. Just remember to place them in a freezer-friendly container first. You can keep the peanut butter bars in the freezer for 1-2 months. Thaw before serving.

Where to Buy Ingredients for the Best Keto Peanut Butter Bars
- Keto Chocolate Chips – the best-selling keto chocolate chips for years running. I love these using these low carb chocolate chips in everything from keto fudge to keto dessert bars (and even just a snack!).
- Keto Maple Syrup – a keto pantry essential. I’ve used this brand of low carb, keto maple syrup for years, as well as the one from lakanto. Sometimes ya just need to switch it up! I used this exact brand of keto maple syrup to develop my keto peanut butter bars recipe.
- Coconut Flour – one of my favorite keto-friendly flours. Coconut flour is awesome for keto because it’s so low carb, boasting just 2 net carbs per serving. This is the brand of coconut flour that I’ve used for years.

Starting week 2, the bars are a bit drier (like Reese’s PB cup filling), but still delicious.
