Who doesn’t love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate? Before making low carb a lifestyle, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were a regular part of my life. Fast forward almost four years, and a real Reese hasn’t crossed my lips. This by no means that I suddenly stopped loving the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. However, traditional chocolate and peanut butter bars no longer fit my low carb lifestyle.
So what’s a girl to do? Experiment, that’s what! I have some good low carb peanut butter recipes like this cookie, and this peanut butter bar, but the recipe I am sharing with you today, just became my family’s new favorite.
Anytime, I can get company to test a recipe it’s fantastic. Especially if they are not on a low carb diet. I love to get their genuine opinion, their input will either send me to the computer to write down a new recipe or back to the drawing board. Either way it’s a win.
This recipe makes 2 1/2 dozen bars and freezes beautifully.

Low Carb Marble Peanut Butter Fudge Bars
(4 net carbs per bar)
2 sticks butter (softened)
2 cups of sugar substitute (I use Swerve)
1 pkg 8 oz softened cream cheese (softened)
2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream
1 cup peanut butter (all natural, no sugar added)
2 cups sesame seed flour (or substitute with almond flour)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
¼ teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 additional tablespoons of peanut butter
additional ¼ cup of sugar substitute
2 tablespoons of water
In a large stand up mixer combine the 2 sticks of butter, 2 cups of sugar substitute, and 8 ounces of cream cheese. Once well combined and fluffy add the 1 cup of peanut butter. To this mixture add the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. Next add the sesame flour, baking powder, salt. Set apart 1 cup of this batter and to it add the 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, the additional ¼ of sugar substitute, 2 tablespoons of water and the additional 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. (This makes the fudge batter)
Spread the peanut butter batter onto a parchment paper lined 10X12 pan. Using wet hands can help spread the batter easier. Next add spoonful’s of the chocolate fudge batter onto the peanut butter batter. Use a tooth pick to lightly mix the fudge batter into the peanut butter mixture for a marble effect.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes or until lightly golden brown around the edges.
