If you’ve been following along for a while, you know I’m a giant fan of Keto Bars (I actually listed 8 reasons why here), I think they are at the top of the list of the best-tasting keto-friendly snacks, and they have been a huge supporter of WickedStuffed for a couple years now. So when they approached me to try their new Chocolate Peanut Butter bar, I was THRILLED.
In the past, I used to lob a spoonful of peanut butter on top just for fun once in a while, so to have it combined sounded like a nice treat. Plus, I have been doing a lot of commuting lately and it’s been such a relief to carry them with me instead of relying on vending machines.
So let’s get to the good stuff!
Keto Bars were deeelish as-is, but they got a lot of requests to add a peanut butter flavor, and boy are these new Peanut Butter Chocolate bars packed with it. There’s nothing subtle about it, so if you love the combo of chocolate and peanut butter, you’ll love them. Salty and sweet, with crushed peanuts throughout the bar which adds a great texture.
In their first draft, the flavor faded quickly, which is to be expected when you use real ingredients—one of the reasons why I like Keto Bars so much. But they fixed it for the final draft.As they put it, they “pumped up the ingredients a found a better way to keep that flavor lasting longer.” And while they were at it, they kept the macros just about the same – 3g of net carbs, with 1g of extra fat (score!).
The result is totally delicious, peanut-buttery bars that also happen to be dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan (note: the original dark chocolate coconut recipe still has heavy cream).
If you’ve had a Keto Bar in the past, you’re familiar with the chewy almost brownie-like consistency with coconut texture. I have always loved it, and I really don’t enjoy most other types of keto-friendly bars because they often have a taffy-like consistency.
Well, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Bars are even better. Opening the package smells amazing, and the bar itself practically melts in your mouth. It feels like dessert, they’re a little addicting.
In closing, get yourself some of these Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Bars. They are SO, SO good. If you liked the original Keto Bars, and you like peanut butter, you will LOVE these. I opened one before I started writing this review to “get in the mood” and it’s so addicting that I have needed to interrupt my review to take another bite. They really are that good!
