These Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Bars are an easy to make indulgence that will satisfy your sweet tooth in a guilt free way.
Alright, who needs a treat?
This has been a loooong week, not bad...just long, and I could definitely use a fun dessert and a nap. Especially because it's been pouring rain for the past couple of days and that's my favorite sleepy weather!
Anyway, in the spirit of the mood, I have a really easy dessert for you that can be made quickly with the keto staples you probably already have in your pantry!
One of the best things about this recipe is that it doesn't taste healthy. Sometimes you just need that, you know? It tastes indulgent, it tastes sweet...
It almost tastes wrong!
But it's not! It's Keto-friendly, and very easy to make. Best part is there are only 2.4 net carbs per piece.
So it's definitely a SOMETIMES treat (just like my Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites). Don't go all out...it might be tempting, but control yourself 🙂
One important note about Peanut Butter: although it's completely delicious, you should remember to only buy natural peanut butter with a maximum of two ingredients: peanuts and salt. I know some people choose to avoid peanut butter altogether. If that's you, just use almond butter instead...it'll be just as tasty!
If you've been tracking your nutrition on Keto for any amount of time you know that companies can be VERY tricky with their labels and cram hidden carbs in there without you really knowing.
Check. The. Labels.
How To Make Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

After just a little mixing you can just pop it in the freezer to harden before sinking your teeth into your new favorite keto dessert!Print

Just put these into the fridge, so I haven't tried them yet but should the fiber content in the listing be .5 instead of 5? So net carbs would be 1.9 per serving? Just wondering...

Pure heaven. This is exactly what I needed for Easter, while I'm watching my kids chow down on Lindt easter bunnies and cupcakes!!

You have powdered swerve listed for the chocolate layer, but no where in the directions do you say to add it. Can you clarify please.
