Fall in love with every layer. These keto brownie snickers are the type of dessert you never want to finish but can’t stop eating!

Snickers bars have just the perfect combination of flavors so I couldn’t resist turning them into something my body would be happy with too.

I used to eat snickers A LOT! They are clearly one of those things that I couldn’t stop myself from grabbing whenever I needed a snack.

So I thought, what if I created my own version of a snickers bar? Maybe even sugar free brownie snickers!

Something people can nibble on whenever they get hungry, but without the accompanying calories?!

And here’s the result, a delicious layered brownie with balanced flavors that are totally irresistible.

The Perfect Brownie + Candy Confection

When I first thought about creating my own carb free brownie snickers, I admit, I had some reservations. I didn’t think it was possible, frankly, to have healthy, low carb candy, plus a chocolaty brownie layer.

It’s a testament to the advancement of the times, and people’s constant struggle to improve themselves (and their health), as well as my eternal belief that anything is possible, that I was able to pull this off.

After I rolled the idea around my head and worked at it for weeks, I finally thought, yes, I could make this healthier– so ketoers like me could enjoy it without feeling bad after.

Let’s face it, a snickers bar is pure, awesome goodness in and of itself! I didn’t think I could improve much on this confectionary perfection.

What Are Keto Brownie Snickers?

A snickers bar (the candy) is nougat-based, topped with roasted peanuts and caramel goodness, dipped and covered in milk chocolate. Yes, it’s a heavenly masterpiece.

My keto brownie snickers are just about the same, with a few delicious tweaks! The base for my awesome, high inducing, low carb snack is a baked brownie layer, topped by keto caramel, peanut butter fudge, and finally, chocolate coating!

The Healthy Way To Eat Your Way To Brownie Heaven

Apart from being delicious and worthy of adulation, my keto brownie snickers are also healthy!

I am going to take creative licence and assume you now are asking me questions like– What? How? The answer is simple! Make it keto!

My keto diet calls for a minimal intake of carbs per day and, to make that happen while keeping me happy, I have to find substitutes to the ingredients that are unhealthy, but which we have relied on for ages.

I use almond flour, cocoa powder, and monkfruit for my brownie base. Butter is the only thing I don’t substitute in creating my keto brownies (it’s perfect for keto afterall).

It plays such an important role and there is just no way to replace it without compromising the taste or consistency of my brownie base.

My sugar free fudge is created using all natural peanut butter, vanilla extract, a bit of salt, some butter, and monkfruit.

What makes this sugar free peanut butter fudge special is that I add a bit of NuNatural’s Caramel Syrup to it! It’s perfect for any recipe that requires a sweet and salty taste! And frankly? It just makes everything better! (see additional sugar free fudge recipes!)

NuNatural’s Caramel: I CAN’T STOP PUTTING IT ON EVERYTHING!

A snickers bar’s ace in hole is its caramel. It has this sweet and salty vibe that is perfect– just exactly right. And very hard to recreate!

Or at least, that’s what I thought before I discovered NuNatural’s Caramel. It created the perfect sugar free caramel layer for my carb free brownies.

I highly recommend you try using this for any sugar free caramel recipes in your repertoire. It’s sugar free, gluten free, vegan, Non-GMO product verified, and uses organic stevia! It’s healthy and yummy!

It’s honestly the perfect blend of sweet and salty that is ideal to almost everything– coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, cakes, ice cream! Everything, everything!

I have been putting it on literally everything for some weeks now that I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive withdrawal from this awesomeness.

Try it! Make your day, and your sugar free caramel recipes, better with NuNatural’s Caramel!

The Secret To The Treasure That Is My Keto Brownie Snickers

My keto brownie snickers are not just any ordinary chocolate. It’s a bit more complicated than that. It has layers. Every layer is a delight unto itself. If you perfect every single one of them, then you get the perfect dessert, too.

I have done a bit of reading up on similar recipes and I have noticed that others have had similar trouble with the layering process. Some hurriedly put everything together, all the layers, which resulted in a catastrophe.

The trick is simple: wait for all the layers to cool down completely before putting them together. This is so your keto brownie snicker goodness will have well-defined layers.

Each layer will bring something to the table, and when put together properly, will make the whole experience worth every bite.

The Ultimate Brownie Experience

Creating keto desserts is not easy. Aside from the obvious fact that desserts are usually unhealthy and you have to find a way to make it healthy without compromising the taste and the experience, it’s also a bit challenging, the way you have to hunt up the alternatives that wouldn’t just make your creation low carb and/or gluten free, but also really delicious (and without the aftertaste usually associated with substitutes).

Then there’s the experimenting, which kind of makes you look like a mad scientist wearing almond flour on his/her face!

But, at the end, there’s this perfect little keto brownie snickers that just begs to be bitten off and finished.

This confection is the perfect healthier substitute to the snickers candy. It tastes better, and your body will thank you later!
