If you are looking for a healthy peanut butter coconut fat bomb recipe, you’ve come to the right place.

  1.  Make your coconut layer and refrigerate.
  2. Make your peanut butter layer, spread over the coconut layer, and refrigerate until firm.

Keto Peanut Butter Coconut Fat Bombs Ingredients

Difference between flaked coconut and shredded coconut

Flaked coconut tends to be in larger pieces, and often requires more liquid, sweetener of sticky substance to shape. 

Shredded coconut is usually more finely milled, and more even texture. Depending on which part of the world you live in, you can also get an even finer cut coconut, referred to as desiccated coconut or macaroon coconut. 

What types of shredded coconut

Shredded coconut comes in two forms- Either unsweetened shredded coconut or sweetened shredded coconut.

For these no bake coconut peanut butter bars, opt for the unsweetened kind- You’ll be adding a sticky sweetener to form into bars so it will be plenty sweet!

Peanut Butter Substitutions

While peanut butter keeps this recipe keto-friendly and sugar-free, there are options for those wanting a peanut-free recipe or nut-free alternatives to peanut butter.

Almond Butter You can use almond butter as a paleo and vegan alternative to peanut butter. It has a less obvious taste and is smooth and creamy. Ensure you use the drippy kind (extremely smooth) as it will be much easier to mix. 

Sunflower Seed Butter Peanut-free fans, sunflower seed butter is your best alternative. It replicates the texture and somewhat tastes of peanut butter, minus the peanuts. It can be a little bitter, so you can use the lightly sweetened kind of you prefer. 

Wow Butter (soy nut butter)- Another nut-free alternative to peanut butter, wow butter is made from ground soy nuts. It has a pleasant flavor and can be purchased online and from health food stores. 

How to make homemade keto peanut butter from scratch

As much as I love store-bought peanut butter, making my own is just as easy. I can also adjust the texture to suit whichever recipe I’m making! Here is an easy one-ingredient homemade peanut butter recipe.

You only need dry unsalted peanuts (2-4 cups) and the optional pinch of salt!

Using a good quality blender or food processor, simply pulse your peanuts until crumbly. Give them a good stir, ensuring you scrape down the sides a and the bottom of the jar/bowl. Continue blending/pulsing until it becomes creamy.

These no bake peanut butter coconut fat bomb bars are the best no bake recipe made with just 3 ingredients! Naturally paleo, keto, vegan, dairy free and sugar free- Ready in 5 minutes!
Servings: 20 Bars
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 10 mins

Ingredients  

For the coconut layer

For the peanut butter layer

Instructions 

  • Start by prepping your coconut layer. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside. 
  • In a mixing bowl, add your shredded coconut, melted coconut oil and sticky sweetener of choice and mix well. The batter should be crumbly but thick. Pour into the lined baking pan and press firmly in place. Put in the freezer. 
  • While the coconut layer is firming up, make your peanut butter layer. 
  • In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your peanut butter with your sticky sweetener and melt. Add your coconut flour and whisk very well- You want to avoid clumps. If the batter is too thin, add a little more coconut flour. 
  • Remove the pan from the freezer and add the peanut butter layer over the coconut layer. Spread evenly over the coconut layer and refrigerate until firm. Once firm, use a slightly wet knife and cut into 20 bars. 

Notes

* The best sticky sweeteners are either pure maple syrup, agave nectar or honey. For a vegan/keto-friendly sweetener, use a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup, NOT pancake syrup or sugar free syrup. 
** Depending on your brand of coconut flour, you may need more to achieve a thicker texture. 
3 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Bars (Keto, Low Carb, Sugar Free) need to be kept refrigerated at all times, otherwise, the coconut layer will fall apart and be crumbly. The crack bars are also freezer friendly.

    1. Actually, this is 100% keto-approved. My friends and family who follow a ketogenic lifestyle have personally vouched for them. Enjoy

      1. How is this Keto friendly if you are recommending, agave, honey or maple syrup? These are all ridiculously high in carbs and sugar.

    1. you are correct, which is why almond butter is recommended (and has been tested). Enjoy!

  1. Have you ever tried coconut-flavored peanut butter? Sounds interesting, but it is SO FREAKING good. Earth Balance has this amazing coconut peanut butter that you definitely need to try–it will actually work fabulously in this recipe!

  2. Do you ever create recipes where a sticky sweetener is not needed? I only have/use pure stevia extract (powder, very high concentration). Is there any way to substitute the liquid sweetener for something in your recipes and use the concentrated stevia?

  3. 5 stars
    Hi Arman, Love your recipes and variations for paleo ie tahini and almond butters… and your enthusiasm! For a sticky sweetener is sugar free maple syrup just not sticky enough? I can’t get monk fruit where I live and I want a sweetener very low to no carbs any suggestions?
    Cheers !

    1. Hi there! Unfortunately, I’ve found it doesn’t help hold the bars together. You can technically use it, but ensure it is kept frozen.

  4. Made them yesterday and they’re delicious and SO easy to put together! I’ll definitely make them again and try different nut butters and play with flavours 😍

  5. 5 stars
    Just made this for an afternoon treat for my Kiddo.. I used 1/2 Tahini 1/2 Almond Butter and a dash of vanilla. Delicious and protein filled 💗
