A dairy free brownie with a chocolate peanut butter layer! These chocolate peanut butter keto brownies are only 3.5 net carbs and sinfully delicious! If you miss chocolate peanut butter cups, you’re going to love these!
Chocolate and peanut butter can do no wrong in my life. In fact, chocolate and peanut butter do a whole lotta right. Take these keto peanut butter cup brownies for example. They can fix all your problems, I’m sure of it.
Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. This time of year is really hard for me. What time of year, you ask?
Easter. Easter is really hard for me, okay? Gosh. I mean, all the chocolate, jelly beans, sugary marshmallows. It’s just cruel.
And why, Reeses, are your peanut butter eggs the BEST shape of all your peanut butter cups? Everyone knows the eggs are best, then the trees, and last but never least, the pumpkins.
I must confess too. I almost bought a value sized bag of Reeses eggs “for the kids” at Costco the other day. I knoooooow. So, so bad but I didn’t, alright? Plus, this is a safe space and I feel comfortable telling you that.
Like I casually hinted earlier, peanut butter and chocolate are my weakness. in fact, I’ve been dreaming about making a keto chocolate peanut butter cup for months! Don’t worry, it’s coming too!
But until then, I’m giving you keto peanut butter cup brownies. Y’ALL. These brownies are the bomb! Raise the roof good, y’all. Let me say it louder for the people in the back: THESE BROWNIES ARE THE BOMB!
I suppose these Keto Brownies should come with a warning attached: making these brownies may result in an uncontrollable urge to eat the entire pan in one sitting. If brownies are consumed in one sitting, the consumer might feel sick. Eating the recommended portion size is recommended.
Now that that’s out of the way…
I used my recipe for Fudgey Keto Brownies as the base because if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, nah’m sayin? Monkfruit works best in this recipe but it has the most powdered sugar like consistency of any of the keto sweeteners. I prefer the Lankanto brand. I’ve linked it for you in the recipe card below.
And for an even more Reese’s like chocolate peanut butter layer, sub out the sugar free chocolate chips with ChocZero dark chocolate squares! They’re my favorite chocolate on the sugar free market! If you do that, the carbs don’t change at all!
