Tips For Making These Keto Peanut Pecan Bars
These Keto Peanut Pecan Bars are, without a doubt, amazing already and perfect as is. But, if you want to customize them to fit your own personal preference and tastebuds, that’s not a bad thing either.
We’ve got some tips that may help you enjoy these awesome keto treats even more:
- Roast the pecans before adding them to to the peanut butter mixture.
- Instead of pecans, use your favorite nut. Walnuts, almonds, or even macadamia nuts would taste amazing in place of pecans, if pecans aren’t your thing.
- Add chocolate! We are firm believers that adding chocolate to almost anything makes it better. Some chocolate chips would be an amazing addition to these amazing Keto Peanut Pecan Bars.ChocZero makes our absolute favorite keto friendly chocolate products, and their chocolate chips are to die for!

Best Sweetener For Keto Peanut Pecan Bars
Even though these Keto Peanut Pecan Bars are not our own creation, we still believe that they taste best when sweetened with Lakanto’s Monkfruit Sweetener. We use Monkfruit for all of our sweet treats, and for any thing sweet that we make, really.
Monkfruit is the best keto friendly sweetener we have ever tried and its not even close. Monkfruit has no nasty aftertaste or cooling effect, it tastes amazing, it is zero glycemic, is completely natural, and has a 1:1 ratio to sugar which makes it really easy to convert traditional recipes to keto recipes!
If you want to try Monkfruit for the first time, or if you just need to stock up, order from Lakanto’s website and use our code, “BUTTERTOGETHER” to save 20% off of your entire purchase!
