Keto Peanut Butter Cereal Scotcheroos
If you’ve never had a scotcheroo, it’s basically a peanut butter cereal bar with butterscotch vibes. It’s super peanut-buttery and creamy with a silky chocolate top. It’s basically carbs on carbs in a pan—except when it’s keto!
In this recipe, the molasses isn’t required but it does help them hold together and gives a deeper flavor. It adds 4g of carbohydrate to the entire recipe, which works out to less than .25 g additional carbohydrates per bar. Meaning: it’s worth it.
- 6 tbsp Butter
- ½ cup Allulose* or ¼ cup Erythritol
- 1 tsp Blackstrap Molasses (optional but recommended)
- ½ cup Natural Peanut Butter
- 3 bags Peanut Butter Cereal
- 4 oz Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
- 1 tbsp Peanut Oil
- In a small saucepan melt the butter, allulose, and blackstrap molasses. Stir in the peanut butter to combine.
- Once the peanut butter is incorporated and there are no lumps, fold in the cereal one bag at a time.
- Press the mixture into a lined 6x6 pan and chill for 1 hour.
- Melt the chocolate chips and peanut oil in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments, stirring frequently.
- Once completely melted, spread over the cooled bars and let harden. Slice into 16 squares and enjoy!
*Allulose is a great sweetener for those who are sensitive to the cooling sensation of Erythritol. ½ cup of Allulose contains about 30 calories and 67 grams of fiber. Allulose is not metabolized like glucose and has no impact on blood glucose levels making it keto approved.
