The other day when I was looking on Pinterest at all things Christmas pictures of Almond Bark kept popping up in my feed. Of course, it wasn’t keto or low carb, so it wasn’t an option for me to make. But it inspired me to create a keto/low carb version. I quickly remembered why I love almond bark so much. It’s so easy to make, and you can add as much or as little add-ins as you’d like. It doesn’t have to look amazing because you pour it into a pan, refrigerate, and then break apart. How easy is that? You can customize to suit your tastes. If you don’t like coconut, then leave it out. Peanut butter, not your thing? Omit. Do you love pecans but hate almonds? Add double pecans then. Seriously, customize this recipe however you prefer. It’s that easy.
I love treats like this that are so easy to make and can be whipped up in just a few minutes. It tastes like a delicious chocolate candy bar without all the carbs.
