Flavor, Texture, Crunch!
There are SO many things I love about these! The peanut butter flavor. The chocolate drizzle. The melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. And a light crunch that I CANNOT get enough of.
UPDATE: This recipe was originally published back in 2017 and since then it has become WILDLY popular on Pinterest and Facebook making it one of my most POPULAR recipes for many years in a row! Thank you to everyone who has shared it, made it and reviewed it!! I’d love to hear from you in the comments if you made it 🙂
NO COOKING SKILLS NEEDED
I LOVE how stupid easy these are to make. Melt together a few ingredients. Stir in walnuts. Pour on a plate, give it a little drizzle, pop it in the freezer and voila! No expertise in the kitchen needed. In fact, it’s a great recipe for kids to make!
And makes a healthy snack– full of protein and healthy fats, not to mention the other loads of vitamins and nutrients in each of the ingredients. And it provides all that without an overdose of sugar. #momwin
My Recommended Peanut Butter
If you’re just starting out with low-carb or a keto diet, check the label of your peanut butter. You may be in for a surprise! Even “natural” peanut butter can have added sugar.
Look for a peanut butter brand with just ONE or TWO ingredients. That’s all you need: dry roasted peanuts and salt. Nothing else is necessary or beneficial.
My personal favorite brand in terms of quality, taste, and freshness is Aldi. Their Simply Organic brand of peanut butter is wonderful. I love that it’s organic so it has fewer pesticides.
And the taste is DELICIOUS. The best by far that I have tasted (and I’ve tried many!) It’s also super affordable – around $3-5 depending on where you live. Much cheaper than other brands!!
If you don’t have an Aldi near you, check out Target and Whole Foods’ store brands of pb. Theirs are great, too!
Sweet + Salty
What’s your favorite sweetener? If you love stevia like I do, go for it! I sweetened these with just a dusting of pure stevia powder… literally like a little white breath or cloud, lol. That stuff is strong and you don’t need much.
If you prefer another sweetener, the recipe is FLEXIBLE. It’s a super simple swap for monkfruit drops, a little powdered monkfruit, powdered coconut sugar, or another powdered sweetener of your choice. Just don’t forget to taste before setting it in the freezer.
How to Bring out the Flavor
And don’t forget the SALT. Did you know adding salt actually enhances the sweetness of foods, too? Especially chocolate! Himalayan Pink Salt is my absolute favorite. It’s like a whole new level of flavor. Once I tried it, I will never go back to regular bleached salt again.
How to Store No-Bake Keto Bark
This is important! The key ingredient in this bark is coconut oil. Since it solidifies when chilled, it holds the bark together. (Otherwise it’s just a thick liquid!)
So this bark must be kept refrigerated, but preferably FROZEN at all times. If you make your bark on the thin side, it will melt quickly if left out in a warm room.
However, if your bark melts, no worries, just pop it back in the freezer to firm up again. It’s not ruined! 🙂
Irresistible Crunch You’ve Gotta Try!
If you’re like me, you will LOVE munching on this bark! The crunch is simply irresistible… So satisfying. The perfect after-dinner treat or mid-day pick-me-up. Whenever the sweet and salty need arises, have these stashed in the freezer!
