What Is Keto Peanut Bar Made Of?

The peanut pecan bar by Urvashi is really yum. I just modified it a little and dipped in chocolate, drizzled with some peanut butter before refrigerating them. Another thing that I have done is, divide the dough into two portions and added vanilla protein powder in half before sandwiching both and cutting them into rectangular bars. Coating chocolate is an optional choice. Here is the original recipe of the keto peanut bars and I am including the extra steps in recipe notes.
