Step by Step Instructions
- In a mixing bowl, combine the cracker base ingredients (Good Dee's Cracker Biscuit Mix, coconut oil, and sugar-free maple syrup) until well mixed.
- Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, leaving enough hanging out to easily remove the bars later. Spread the cracker base mixture evenly in the pan and press down firmly to cover the entire bottom.
- Set the pan aside.
- Melt the peanut butter or almond butter and pour it over the cracker base layer, spreading it evenly.
- In a separate bowl, melt the chocolate bar and coconut oil in the microwave until smooth.
- Pour the melted chocolate mixture on top of the nut butter layer. If desired, sprinkle your favorite chopped nuts over the melted chocolate.
- Chill the pan in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or longer if making the bars in advance.
- Remove the bars from the pan by lifting them out using the parchment paper. Using a sharp knife, slice the bars into desired portions swiftly.
- Note that the chocolate may be hard, so it's important to slice quickly to prevent breaking.
- If you prefer a sweeter taste while keeping it low carb, you can add a few drops of Sweet Monk or your favorite sugar substitute to the cracker base mixture.
- For an extra touch of flavor and texture, sprinkle your favorite chopped nuts on top of the melted chocolate before chilling.
- Store the bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
- To maintain their shape and prevent melting, keep the bars in cool conditions and avoid warm temperatures or direct sunlight.
- Customized Toppings: Get creative with your toppings by adding shredded coconut, crushed nuts, or sprinkles to the melted chocolate layer before chilling.
- Flavor Twists: Experiment with different flavors by adding extracts like vanilla, almond, or coconut to the cracker base or the nut butter layer.
- Protein Boost: Incorporate a scoop of your favorite protein powder into the cracker base mixture to increase the protein content of the bars.
