NO BAKE PEANUT BUTTER WHITE CHOCOLATE BARS




NO BAKE PEANUT BUTTER WHITE CHOCOLATE BARS
These are plain addictive.  You could use almond butter instead of peanut butter.  For only 2 grams net carbs, you're going to have a tasty cookie bar to eat alongside your tea or coffee.  Great mid-afternoon pick-me-upper!

1 cup ground almonds, OR (250 mL)
  almond flour
1/cup shredded coconut (60 mL)
1/cup powdered erythritol, OR packet sweetener equiv. (kind used for coffee) (60 mL)
  OR your favorite sweetener
1/cup sugar-free peanut butter (60 mL)
1/cup unsalted butter, melted (60 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or steviato equal 1/cup (60 mL)
  sugar (OR your favorite sweetener)
3.5 oz sugar-free white chocolate (I like Ross bars)  (100 g)
  OR dark chocolate like Lindt if you prefer, OR a mix of cocoa butter and chocolate plus sweetener
  OR (5/8 cup) white chocolate chips
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (30 mL)
2 tbsp heavy cream (30 mL)

In food processor, or in bowl of mixer, process ground almonds, OR almond flour, coconut, erythritol, peanut butter, unsalted butter and liquid sweetener.
