Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

About 5.5 net carbs per bar

This has got to be my new favorite sugar free, gluten free recipe remake! I love the rich topping of peanut butter and chocolate and the chewy cookie part on the bottom. It took me a couple tries to figure out the right amount of sweetener for the chocolate. The chocolate part is more of a dark chocolate than a milk chocolate. These taste amazing and have about 30 net carbs less per bar than the regular thing!
