    These look really good, but I do not have the powder sugar. Would a regular sugar substitute work or would it make these too grainy?

    • Swerve

      Hey Melinda, Thank you for your comment! The Confectioner's Swerve really does work better here to get a nice, smooth consistency. If you used the Granular they would taste fine, but you might get that grainy texture. Hope this helps! If you'd like a coupon just send us a message through our contact form :)

    Can these be made without the Whey Protein? Maybe increase the flour? Thanks.

    • Swerve

      Hey Stephanie! Exactly, you can increase the flour by 1/2 cup and remove the protein powder.

    These were awesome! Thank you! Instead of peanuts, I used some sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.

  • Alex

    Interesting idea but the result of this recipe is powdery and not something that forms solid bars. Are the measures for the wet ingredients correct? Seems like more oil or peanut butter are required. I would say double the amount for wet ingredients shown here.

    • Swerve

      Hi Alex! Thank you for visiting our website and for your feedback. We tried out this recipe in our test kitchen, and the ingredient measurements worked for us. The mixture was thick, and paste-like, but we were able to spread into the pan. Did you combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan over heat?

    Hello, currently i am the only person in my household trying keto so i was wondering if i could freeze the bars or if not, how long would they keep for? Thanks

    • Swerve

      Hi Joanne, these should freeze well! They can last up to one year in the freezer.
