With Easter right around the corner, I figured I would share these delicious, low carb homemade snickers with you guys to have some healthier options for you guys. I don't about you but we always a bunch of candy around the house these days.
Especially around the holidays.
What better way to avoid temptation than to make a more nutritious "candy bar"? And don't these look absolutely incredible?
You can also make these delicious Low Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups if you have a candy craving.
These snickers bars and the chocolate peanut butter cups taste even better with a cup of my Apple Chai Latte or my Low Carb Bulletproof Hot Chocolate...
Why You Should Make These Homemade Snickers Bars
I always like to prepared for a sweet craving, especially around any of the holidays. We are busier, maybe a little more stressed than usual and we just might be stress eating or eating mindlessly.
That is exactly why I prepare myself and avoid all of those tempting treats and make a much more healthy version. And man oh man, these homemade snickers did not disappoint.
Even though they look like they took hours and hours to make, I promise you only need a few normal ingredients to make these babies.
- Sugar free chocolate chips - I use Lily's Chocolate Chips that are sugar free and sweetened only with stevia and erythritol. You can use whatever you'd like in here.
- Coconut oil -
- Peanut butter
- Monk fruit - I used the liquid form of Monk Fruit for this recipe. You can also substitute with the sugar free alternative of your choice.
- Peanuts - I use dry roasted peanuts for these which means that the ingredients should only say peanuts. When it says regular roasted peanuts that simply means that it was roasted with an oil, usually peanut oil or canola oil. I just want straight peanuts and nothing else.
- Almond flour - I use the super fine almond flour in all of my baked goods because it lends the lightest, ideal texture, especially in gluten free desserts.
How to Make These Homemade Snickers Bars
Mix all of the ingredients for the base in a medium size mixing bowl.
Transfer the bottom layer mixture to a 8’’ square tray lined with parchment paper and press it down to set. Place it in the freezer while preparing the other layers.
For the filling, whisk peanut butter, Monk fruit, coconut oil and salt until smooth. Pour the filling over the base until it is all covered.
Spread the dry roasted peanuts all over the filling. Place it in the freezer for one hour to harden.
Melt chocolate with coconut oil for 45 seconds in the microwave or until smooth.
I simply drizzled the chocolate on top of these bars but you can also place them completely in the melted chocolate to make sure they are all covered. Do whatever you want, either way they will taste delicious.
I decided to freeze a couple (and hide them from my family) so they will be there waiting for me when my taste comes back.
I used Lily's Sugar Free Chocolate Chips for the topping but ChocZero also makes delicious sugar free chocolate chips as well.
The most difficult part of making this is waiting for them to set in the freezer. It feels WAY longer than it actually is.
I promise it will be worth it.
I highly recommend making a double batch and freezing half for later. You will be so excited that you listened to me.

what would be the equivalent sweetener for sugar? I couldn't find a conversion for the liquid sweetener, used powdered monk fruit and unfortunately over-sweetened it 🙁 definitely needs a glass of milk to accompany now lol
Hi there! You are asking how much sugar you would need instead of monk fruit?
Reposting my question. I need to sub out the oil making for a friend and they don’t use oil of any kind. What do you think I can Sub?
Hi Paula! I have only made these bars with oils so I can't offer any suggestions, I am sorry. Please let me know how they come out!
These remind me of Gas Oakley's salted caramel bars. Just peanut butter instead of dates.
I am not sure what those are, but they sound delicious too! We love these bars!
These are amazing! I did modify the chocolate ganache part. The coconut oil caused mine to seize. I used 2 oz of the Ghirardelli’s zero sugar 100% cacao, 1/2 cup of whipping cream, a splash of vanilla, and 2 squirts if the liquid stevia from Trader Joe’s. Melted together on the stove top and dipped the cut up bars. Sprinkled with smoked sea salt.
That sounds amazing! So happy you liked them Sheila!
Hello I’m a little confused by this recipe. The blog indicates granular sugar and the recipe itself states liquid monk fruit . Which one is it? And is it monk fruit extract? Would like to try this recipe but would like to be sure before going forward. Thanks
Hi Kim! I used liquid monk fruit for this but I bet you could use granular too. Sorry for the confusion, I fixed it!
These were a big hit with my family today. I baked my crust about 5 minutes and cooled it before adding the filling. I didn’t have monk fruit, so I subbed honey in the crust and pure maple syrup in the peanut butter filling. Another change I made was using chocolate melting disks instead of sugar free as that is what I had. Soooo good! Thank you!
So happy you liked them! And thanks for sharing the substitutions with us in case anyone else wants to try it!
I’m so confused, you had covid full-on? I thought I was reading a recipe but parts are sprinkled with covid.
Yes, I did have covid. It has been helpful for me to share my lingering symptoms because others have reached out with similar experiences.
These look heavenly and so delicious! I can’t wait to make these! So excited!
Fantastic! I've always wanted to try out monkfruit. It worked great and these snickers are delicious.
I am so happy you liked them!
I need to sub out the oil making for a friend and they don’t use oil of any kind. do you think I can Sub unsweetened applesauce?
I saw the first photo and ran to my kitchen to make these!! So delicious and WAY better than any store bought candy bar. Thanks you!!
Yay!! Thanks so much!
