Are kids back in school yet?
I think kids are back in school and I’ve been googling for 12,000 years (read: 5 seconds) to figure out if I could make a case for you packing these sugar free granola bars in their lunch yet.
But, Mr. Google is actually letting me down for once in my life. COULD NOT GET AN ANSWER.
So, Imma ask Y-O-U. Are they?
Regardless of the school-status of your kiddos, you are going to love the CRISP. THE CRUNCH. THE SWEET AND NUTTY AND CHOCOLATEY status of life that eating a keto granola bar is going to put you in. It’s like healthy chewy granola bars in low carb form OR like grain free low carb keto granola in BAR FORM, and it’s a switch up from the standard bowl of homemade keto low carb cereal for breakfast.
Straight up my internet friends, these seemingly-simple are loaded with THE GOODS:
- T-W-O kinds of roasty almonds to keep your taste buds TINGLIN’
- Golden-brown, toasty coconut flakes shimmying in between each almond CRUNCH
- Creamy swirls of almond butter because it always makes it BETTER
- Chocolate chips. ‘Cause, well, NO EXPLANATION NEEDED.
If you’re eyeing up the list of ingredients in this low sugar granola bar recipe, and thinking they sound suspiciously like the homemade paleo almond joy, crispy no bake almond joy bars and salted almond joy no bake bars, you’re RIGHT.
NO SHAME IN MY ALMOND JOY INSPIRED FOOD MAKING GAME.
Chocolate + chocolate + almond + coconut = yummy food vibes for your hungry, snackin’ mouth.
I also realized that I wrote chocolate twice. It happened without me even realizing it, so I left it because I feel like your brain related with mine in the sense that it’s basically always thinking about chocolate no matter what.
You know that Lindt commercial that asks if you dream in chocolate? I’m always just on my couch, drooling and yelling YES at my screen. <– You’re welcome for that mental picture.
Are granola bars healthy?
Typically, granola bars from the store are loaded with sugar and other not-so-good for you ingredients, which makes them “unhealthy.” Of course, I never will tell you to not eat something EVER, but it’s a much better choice to just make ‘em yourself!
Like THIS sugar free keto low carb granola bars recipe! 7 simple, pantry-essential kinda ingredients so they basically MAKE THEMSELVES.
That’s an exaggeration though. Don’t get too excited. I’m not MAGIC.
Why are homemade granola bars healthier?
Homemade granola bars are better for you because you get to control what you put in them. You don’t need to put a bunch of preservatives like the store bought version does, so you can use simple, real ingredients! You can also pick different ingredients that are higher in protein (like nuts!) to make your granola bars more filling and nutritious!
A few other favorite healthy snack bars are healthy peanut butter oatmeal breakfast bars, a paleo protein bars recipe and homemade paleo protein bars. You know, if you want a little snack-time VARIETY. You could even start you day with some sugar free keto low carb breakfast bars!
What can I use instead of monkfruit?
One of the most beautiful things about munching on a SIMPLE BUT OHSO YUMMY, crunch-a-rific bliss bar is that they are JUST as blissful if you keep them in the fridge OR if you’re a busy-living-your-life kinda person who has to take ‘em on the go.
Whatever your life situation, these little granola bars are gonna be there RIGHT WITH YOU, cheering you on.
AND giving you (or the kiddos!) the energy and happy-full-tummy-feels that you need to TACKLE the day.
Happy snacks. Happy you. Happy LIFE.

Sugar Free Keto Low Carb Granola Bars Recipe
- Heat your oven to 375 degrees and line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper, leaving some hanging over the sides to use as a handle later on.
- Place the chopped almonds, slivered almonds and coconut flakes on 3 separate small baking sheets. Bake until golden brown and toasted. The coconut will only take 2-4 minutes, the slivered almonds about 3-5 minutes and the chopped almonds about 7-12 minutes. Let cool completely. Additionally, reduce the oven temperature to 350.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the egg and monkfruit.
- In a separate small, microwave-safe bowl, melt the almond butter and coconut oil until smooth, about 30 seconds. Whisk into the egg mixture until well combined.
- Add in all the nuts, coconut and salt and stir until well combined. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
- Press VERY firmly into the prepared pan. I like to hold a little piece of parchment paper to make this easier. Put some muscle into it because you need to pack these in so they hold together.
- Bake until the top just feels set, about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool COMPLETELY to room temperature in the pan.
- Once cool, slice and DEVOUR!
