Sea Salt Reese's Bars
These are low carb and paleo-friendly too! Only 15 grams of carbs per serving. Not bad for a treat, plus it's loaded with healthy fats and protein.
Servings: 24 bars
Nut butter layer
- 2 cups organic creamy peanut butter, or almond butter for paleo-friendly
- 8 Tablespoons melted butter or for paleo: ghee or coconut oil
- 8 Tablespoons real maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1-1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt --start with less, you can always add more.
For the nut butter layer, melt butter in a small saucepan and while it’s still warm mix well with the other ingredients. Spread in a 9x13 pan (I like to put parchment in the bottom first but you don’t have to). Pop it into the freezer while you work on the chocolate layer.Melt all of the ingredients together for 1-2 minutes in the microwave or use a double boiler on the stove. Stir well until it's a nice smooth consistency then spread evenly onto the nut butter layer. Store in the refridgerator until serving.
There are 13 carbs in 1 Tablespoon maple syrup = 130 carbs in 10 Tablespoons. Nut butter has 7 carbs in 2 Tablespoons = 112 carbs in 2 cups. A whole bag of chocolate chips = 126 carbs. The other ingredients = 0 carbs.
Total in 9x13 = 368 carbs
—24 bars, about 2” x 2” = 15 grams carbs/bar
