Keto Granola-ish Bars

Finding healthy easy “grab and go” Keto options has been challenging. I began making these bars about five months ago, to replace the high sugar high carb snack bars I used to buy. They are easy to make — I don’t even have to bake them, and I think these taste awesome!  The side benefit I found is that they improve my digestive system tremendously, so I almost always keep some on hand.

This recipe makes 16 bars, which I keep in the refrigerator.

Keto Granola-ish Bars:IMG_5482

  • 1 T. Psyllium Whole Husks
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup golden flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts (hemp seeds)
  • 1/4 cup Lily’s Stevia sweetened chocolate chips
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1 t. ground nutmeg
  • 2-4 crushed cloves
  • 2 T. melted cocoanut oil
  • 3 T. confectioners powdered erithritol (I use Swerve)
  • 1/3 cup prebiotic fiber sweetener syrup (I use FiberYum)

IMG_5483Line an 11×13 baking pan with parchment paper.  In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except for the melted cocoanut oil and Fiber Sweetener Syrup.  With a rubber scraper/spatula mix very well. Then slowly (a little at a time) mix in the melted cocoanut until everything is well coated.  Then again, slowly, drizzling a little at a time, mix in the Fiber Sweetener Syrup until everything is very sticky and well coated. Pour the contents of the bowl into your lined baking pan and begin pressing the mix into the pan evenly. Cover with more parchment and refrigerate. These bars will last a very long time in the fridge, but at our house they are usually gone within a week.

According to my counts on MyFitnessPal, these bars are 156 calories, 14.1 grams of fat, 1.9 grams NET carbs, 4.7 grams protein
