  • Microwave


  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or maple extract
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans



  • Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine the peanut butter, oil, and sweetener. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time. Stir until ingredients are well-blended.
  • Add the extract and pecans; stir well. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Freeze until set, about 20 minutes. Cut into 16 squares.
  • Store in a tightly sealed container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.


  • Once you add pecan to the dough, divide the dough into two portions.
  • To one portion add 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder. And mix well. Now transfer the first mixture into the prepared pan and transfer the other dough and spread it evenly on the top of the peanut dough.
  • Allow it to cool down in the fridge or freezer. Once set, cut them into rectangles.
  • Meanwhile, melt 2 cups of low-carb chocolate in a pan or a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Drizzle or dip each bar in the chocolate batter and allow them to set in the refrigerator.
  • Drizzle the chocolate coated peanut bars with more melted peanut butter and cut them into bite-sized pieces.
