Chewy Low-Carb Peanut Butter Candy Bar

Linda's lick your lips low-carb peanut butter candy recipe

Low-carb blogger/vlogger Kent Altena is back in full form again (YEAH!) with his low-carb YouTube video series. Last week I shared his video about how to make a quick and easy low-carb chocolate cake. Today, he's got another something special up his sleeve.

Of course, this one once again comes from low-carb recipe queen Linda and her outstanding and comprehensive recipe and menu web site. I'm so happy to share her mouthwatering recipes with you in Kent's videos and you can access more of them at the recipe thread at my new "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Discussion" forum where Linda herself is the moderator. Check it out!

The recipe Kent makes in this video is for a chewy low-carb peanut butter candy bar. Although he's gotten some negative comments from a few people at YouTube about the way this recipe looks, all that matters is that it TASTES FANTASTIC! I think you'll agree. :D

Here is Kent's video:


2 TBS butter
1/4 cup natural chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup Splenda
1 cup chocolate whey protein powder
1/4 cup DaVinci Vanilla syrup
1/4 cup Salted nuts (optional)

- Melt the Butter, and mix with Splenda.
- Add the Peanut Butter to the mix until smooth.
- Mix protein powder until crumbly
- Add DaVinci syrup, and the mix should turn glossy and much easier to form into 2 mini loaf pans
- Freeze mixture for 1 hour, and it should be able to be eaten.

For a slightly different variation, check out Linda's version.

By the way, Kent will answer the question "How should low-carb endurance athletes hydrate themselves?" in his next video. Gatorade is loaded with sugar carbs, so what should a low-carber drink if they want to run a marathon? Kent shares from his own personal experience coming soon. I'll feature it here when it's on YouTube!

We got a lot of marbles riding on Splenda and caffeine and chocolate. I wish you well!
