Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

 These Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars are loaded with peanut butter and chocolate goodness.  Thick and oozing with peanut butter and melty sugar-free chocolate chips makes these the perfect little low carb treat.

The fact that these low carb peanut butter chocolate chip bars are also fuss-free means you can enjoy them quickly. They are packed with flavor yet manage to also be sugar-free, grain-free, gluten-free and low in carbs.  

I’ve always been a fan of the flavor of chocolate and peanut butter together. I don’t know who was the first to pair them but as far as I am concerned it was a genius moment.

8 ounces of full-fat cream cheese (room temperature)

1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature )

2 cups of granulated sugar substitute

1 cup of peanut butter (sugar-free) reserve 1/2 cup to be dotted to top of the bars before baking swirled.

1/2 cup of dry roasted peanuts ( for the topping)

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup of coconut flour

1 1/2 cup almond flour
