No Bake Almond Butter Bars (Low Carb and Gluten Free)

I was shown this recipe from "Living Low Carb, One Day at a Time".  They sound yummy!  I am posting them here so I can remember to give them a shot too!  I have Sunbutter here, I wonder if that would be good instead of almond butter?  Hmmm . . . I may try that.
  • 3/4 cup almond flour 
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut 
  • 3/4 cup equivalent powdered sweetener
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp almond butter (or any nut butter) 
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil 
  • 4 1/2 oz dark chocolate
  1. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut, and sweetener.
  2. Over medium-low heat melt 1 cup of almond butter and coconut oil.
  3. Once melted, add the almond butter to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Press the mixture into a 8" x 8" baking dish.
  5. Over medium-low heat melt 2 Tbsp of almond butter and the chocolate.
  6. Once melted, pour the chocolate over the almond butter mixture and smooth out the top for even coverage.
  7. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until the almond butter mixture has set. To reduce the amount of time for the almond butter mixture to set place the bars in the freezer until set.
  8. Cut into 12 even bars.
No Bake Almond Butter Bars: 5.5 net carbs per serving (yields 12 bars) Almond butter layer: 33 net carbs (without chocolate topping)
