Spring is here, and summer is just around the corner! I can’t believe that, finally, we are having warmer temperatures here in Toronto. As you know, I’m originally from Brazil, and my hometown is very hot with temperatures between 20ºC (68ºF) to 32ºC (90ºF) all year. And because it’s a city surrounded by the ocean, I never really minded the heat. It’s perfect weather to spend the day at the beach! 😉
So, you can imagine how hard it was for me to spend my first winter in Canada. But I have to say, I love summertime in Toronto even without the beach. This city has lots of activities during this time of the year, and you are always outside enjoying life with your loved ones.
I love all the parks with playgrounds, and now that Thomas is walking, it’s great. I’m always walking and playing with him outside. If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen all the little videos (insta-stories) I constantly post of this city and the activities we’ve been doing.
Of course, when the weather is good, the last thing we want to do is stay inside in the kitchen for a long time, right? I’m a food blogger and should love being in the kitchen and yes, I do, but when it’s summer, I prefer to make something easy and refreshing like these Low-Carb No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Bars recipe I bring to you today.

See below for how to make Low-Carb No-Bake Chocolate Bars:
Low-Carb No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Bars
- 1 cup 100% pure peanut butter
- 1¼ cups sugar-free chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon natural sweetner like Swerve — you can use honey for low-carb
- ½ cup unrefined coconut oil — Use the solid form because you are going to melt it with the chocolate.
- 1½ cups unsweetened shredded coconut — save some for the topping
- 1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
- 1 cup walnuts — chopped
- 1 cup unsalted roasted cashews — chopped
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a microwave-safe bowl, add the peanut butter, chocolate, Swerve, and coconut oil.
Heat it at 50% power for 1 minute.
Remove from the microwave, and stir.
Return the bowl to the microwave and repeat, stopping to stir every 15 seconds until the mixture is completely melted.
Add the remaining ingredients, and stir until they are well-combined.
Pour into an 8x8-inch removable bottom pan. Top with shredded coconut.
- Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens. It takes about 4 hours.
Slice into square pieces, and store in the refrigerator.
