Have you heard of Take Five Candy Bars? Their popularity is based on the fact that they have a little bit of everything in them—kind of Snickers, Nestles’ Crunch, Reese’s combo. That is this!  {from the “Healthy Mixes – Sugar Free, Flour Free” cookbook}

Yield: 45 squares

 

Net Carbs: 2 grams (with peanuts and peanut butter as the “mix ins”)

Calories: 147

Total Fat: 12 grams

Protein: 5 grams

CHOCOLATE LAYER:

 

  • 1 to 3 TBSP coconut oil

THREE OR FOUR INGREDIENTS OF YOUR CHOICE, TOTALING 1 ½ TO 2 CUPS:

  • Peanuts
  • Pecans
  • Almonds
  • Coconut flakes
  • Oats
  • Cookie Crumbles
  • Crushed healthy cereal
  • Crushed healthy pretzels
  • Crushed healthy popcorn

 

 

OTHER WET OPTION—choose one, totaling ½ to 1 cup

  • melted white chocolate
  • caramel sauce
  • peanut butter, loosened in microwave but not heated

 

 

  1. Combine half of the chocolate chips and half of the chocolate bar.
  1. Melt in microwave or in top pan of a double boiler until smooth.
  1. If mixture is melted but thick, pour up to 1 TBSP of coconut oil into it and whip quickly.
  1. Pour into 9”x 11” pan lined with parchment and sprayed with cooking spray. (These bars are thick in order to accommodate all of the mix-ins. You will want to cut them into small squares, but I don’t recommend using larger pan as the “dry” ingredients will not have enough wet ingredients to stick to.)
  1. Sprinkle up to 2 cups total of the Other Ingredients.
  1. Pour melted white chocolate or caramel sauce or loose peanut butter over the Other Ingredients. (Have this mixture ready.)
  1. Combine the other half of the chocolate chips and other half of the chocolate bar and melt as you did the first half, with coconut oil to thin at end as needed.
  1. Freeze or refrigerate until hardened.
  1. Lift out of the pan with the parchment and cut into small squares.
