These low carb, gluten free peanut butter bars are the perfect snack that doubles as a dessert. Thick, chewy and oh so satisfying!
Gluten Free Peanut Butter Bars
Is there anything quite as wonderful as peanut butter? I’m mostly kidding, but not totally. There is just something magical about it.
Now, pair that with a delicious gluten free dessert bar and you have a little slice of heaven.
I like creating desserts and treats that are not too sweet to eat anytime. These gluten free peanut butter bars are the perfect combination of sweet treat and satisfying snack.
Bring them along to pair with breakfast, lunch or dinner even!
How to Make Gluten Free Peanut Butter Bars
First you’ll want to grease a baking dish (pie pan or 8×8 dish) and preheat the oven to 350F.
In a mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients. Mix the oil with the peanut butter and vanilla.
Next, add the eggs to this mixture.
Finally, add the sweetener and flour and mix until combined. Don’t overmix.
Spread in your baking dish and bake at 350F for approximately 25 minutes. It won’t get super brown.
Allow the bars to cool in the pan before adding the drizzle.
In a bowl mix the peanut butter and sweetener with water until it is a consistency that can be drizzled on the peanut butter bars.
Then drizzle away!
Is Peanut Butter Low Carb
That all depends on the brand you use! I like to use Adam’s Natural Unsweetened Peanut Butter.
It is the kind that you need to mix up before using. I know it adds one more step, but it is worth it to get rid of the junk sugar and ingredients.
You are welcome to use “regular” peanut butter, but your sugar content will be significantly higher.
What is the Best Gluten Free Baking Flour?
My absolute favorite is Bob’s Redmill 1 to 1 Baking Flour. And I have tried a GREAT MANY gluten free baking flours. This particular blend of Bob’s Redmill flour is ready to bake with!
No need to add additional items like xantham gum and other thickening agents.
I also find that it is the easiest flour to truly have a 1 to 1 substitution for regular flour which is a bonus!
How to Store Low Carb Peanut Butter Bars
The best way to store these delicious bars is in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
I found that using a glass container with a lid was best as it didn’t mess with the tasty peanut butter drizzle.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can either use an 8×8 baking dish OR a pie dish. Whatever you happen to fancy at the moment.
If you use an 8×8 dish, the bars will be just tad thinner but still taste just as delicious!
