Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Scotcharoos (OWL)

This is one of those recipes that simply astounds me even after making it how good it is.  You might need to be cautious in not having too many of these or being too tempted by them.  My kids who don’t low carb love these treats and usually assist me in finishing the pan.   This recipe is like the old Reese’s PB cups commercial with chocolate getting in my peanut butter.  It tweaks three great recipes and combines them together to make a great dessert.

Ingredients:

-Peanut Butter Crispie Layer-
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup Splenda or liquid equivalent
2/3 cup vanilla whey protein powder
3 cups coconut, toasted
-Chocolate Layer-
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tsp cocoa powder (heaping)
3 tbsp Splenda or liquid equivalent

Makes 24-36 servings.

    Great recipe. Many thanks.

    I adapted it by using equal quantities of desiccated coconut and ground flax seed in the base (no sweetener) and a bit of sweetener in the chocolate/coconut oil top. It was still sweet, so I may experiment by omitting splenda completely. Very popular.

    Looks delish, thanks for the recipe!

  • Beulah

    This looks great! Wondering if the chocolate layer tastes like dark chocolate or like milk chocolate?

  • Beulah

    Great! I’m not a dark chocolate fan either. Can’t wait to make these.
    Thanks so much for such a quick reply.

    What size pan did you use and what brand of protein powder do you use? These look delicious and I’m making them this weekend. Thanks for the video and recipe.

      This pan was 8″x11″ pan, but you could also use a loaf pan too. A slightly smaller pan (loaf or 8″x8″ square) would give slightly thicker bars, which might be nicer and thicker chocolate layer. I personally am using Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Vanilla Ice Cream protein powder flavor. It’s good, but has 3g per serving. I am near the end of it, and am contemplating buying Isopure Zero Carb or AboutTime whey protein powders next time. Both are 0g per serving.

    I have no words for how delicious these are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m speechless. I can’t stop eating them. Well, I have too. lol Thank you so much!! Wanna come cook for us??? :)

    • I am glad you liked them. I have learned that I need to have kids around when I make these recipes as they’ll help prevent over-indulgences of them although they are pretty healthy at peanut butter, protein powder, and coconut for fiber. Thanks for the feedback — that is reason enough to keep making the videos.

  • Lisa

    Yes! Keep making them!! I enjoyed the video. For what it’s worth, you don’t do anything annoying while fixing the food. haha You know how some do annoying things while they cook? Well, your videos are nice and very explanatory. I am down 10 lbs now eating your food. :) Don’t stop!! Thank you for all you do to help us get healthy.
