Low Carb Peanut Roll

Print Friendly

I’m so excited to share this recipe. I’ve been making lots of different types of candies lately, and I decided that I wanted something that combined salty and sweet. My most recent experiment reminds me of one of my old favorite candy bars, the Pay Day. These were simple to make and don’t require unusual ingredients. If you cook low carb, you probably already have everything you need to make these.


Low Carb Peanut Roll

1 stick of butter

1/2 cup granular erythritol (or xylitol)

12 drops EZ Sweetz (equivalent to 1/2 cup Splenda)

1/4 cup heavy cream

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1  1/2 cups salted cocktail peanuts

Melt butter in a small pot over medium-low heat. Add erythritol, EZ Sweetz, cream, and protein powder. Combine with a whisk. Allow mixture to reach a simmer to dissolve the sweetener. Remove from heat, add peanuts, and stir until peanuts are thoroughly coated. Allow to cool for about 3-5 minutes. Stir mixture again before placing on parchment paper. I shaped mine into 3 long bars because I wanted them to look like a Pay Day. Allow mixture to set in refrigerator for about 2-3 hours, or overnight. Cut each bar into 4 pieces.

Serves 12: only 2 NET carbs in each piece

  1. This is great – I love Payday bars, and the flavor of this comes pretty darn close – thank you for another EXCELLENT recipe!

    1. I did this years ago too, and I know exactly what you mean. Back then I didn’t know how to make anything low carb other than steak and eggs. It is so much easier with the products available now.
      Best wishes,

  2. I made these and they were incredible. Shockingly good! I didn’t think it would really taste like a payday, but it did. And to think that I’ve had all of these ingredients on hand for years… Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe. I made it tonight and I couldn’t believe how amazing these are! I tasted just a bit after I had formed the 3 long bars… I was sort of on the fence about them. However, after they had chilled, as directed…. OH MY. I can’t thank you enough! These are DELICIOUS!!! Thank you for all of your hard work and recipes – will try your chicken fried steak tomorrow! :)
