“I love to take treats life this with me to potluck dinners as well as picnics and family gatherings. They are always one of the first treats to disappear from the dessert table.”

These Choco Butter Bars passed with flying colors with my grandson and my husband. I even got asked to make more and bring them over so that our grandson could enjoy them with his cousin while waiting on his baby sister to arrive.

This week has been hectic around here waiting on grand baby # 8 to arrive, she’s being stubborn to say the least. So I needed something that was fairly quick and easy to prepare and take along while visiting family.

I keep a jar of my Sugarless Sweetened Condensed Milk on hand so that cookies and bars like this are ready in a short time from start to finish.

This recipe is a tweak from My Creamy Oatmeal Lemon Bars, I’m not sure which is my favorite though… this crust came out a bit crisper than the one I used in that recipe.

These Choco Butter Bars are very rich dessert bars so small portions go a long way.

I got about 16 bars when I cut it, but you could cut it into 8 for larger servings and still stay within plan guidelines for an S treat. But in all honesty the smaller bar satisfied my sweet tooth leaving me room for an additional 7 net carbs if I wanted to add anything.

It’s kind of neat that some of the cocoa powder mixed with the sugarless sweetened condensed milk to form a chocolatey layer under the Peanut Butter Cream. I may even go a step further next time and melt some of my Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips and put that on the crust before the filling mixture just to get that chocolate snap in there.

Β These choco butter bars haven’t lasted long enough for me to try to freeze them so if you get a chance and store them that way I would appreciate if you could let me know in the comments what the results were.

    Can I use unsweetened coconut flakes instead of coconut meat?

    Hi Judy, Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. I have been wanting to try it. However I do not have erythritol or xylitol to make the sweet brown recipe. Can this recipe be made with THM super sweet instead? Are could I make the sweet brown recipe with super sweet and use it in this recipe? If so do you know what the conversion (in cups) would be from erythritol / sweet brown to super sweet? Thank You so much!

      Sadly she hasn’t graced us with her appearance just yet, and if she’s a bit stubborn well the Doctor says she doesn’t have a choice and will arrive on Tuesday πŸ™‚

    How are these low carb?? Rolled oats are 32 carbs (27 net) per half cup and that’s just the oats, not to mention everything else that is included. Just wondering how you arrived at 3 net carbs per bar.

      Hi Sandy, I actually put these through a recipe calculator for the servings that are provided with all of the ingredients, so the numbers on this are correct when you subtract the fiber from the carbs per serving πŸ™‚
