Recently my son Ted and I took a trip to our local wholesalers. Ted found peanut bars that he wanted to try. They weren’t cheap and I was afraid Ted wouldn’t like them. Ted used to eat peanut butter when he was a toddler but nowadays he not so keen.
As soon as we left the shop and we got back to the car Ted opened the peanut bar packet. He tried one immediately and loved it. The bars in the wholesalers were quite expensive. Therefore I decided to make my own. Ted also loved my homemade ones too. I will definitely be making these again soon.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars (Keto) were a hit Ted. They were really easy to prepare and cook. They lasted a little while in the fridge as well. Depending on how warm it is where you live will depend on whether you can keep these in the fridge. As it’s getting slightly warmer in the UK I will be storing the one I made in the fridge. These make a yummy snack or a great dessert after lunch or dinner. However you decide to eat these bars, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
