Making legit granola bars has always been on my list. Finally, I found a way to make chewy low-carb granola bars that taste just like the real deal with absolutely no hidden carbs — this means no IMOs and other blood sugar spiking sweeteners. They are nutty, chewy, gooey, and packed with flavour!

Unlike most no-bake keto bars, these sugar-free bars are shelf stable so you won't have to keep them in the fridge. Think of these granola bars as your favorite roasted nuts packed in a travel-friendly snack. Stash a few in a sealed container in your car or at your desk at work.

I've made a ton of low-carb granola bars before, both baked and no bake, and I can guarantee that these are the best you'll ever try. Plus I've got more flavours to share with you soon so stay tuned!

How To Make Chewy Keto Granola Bars

Making keto approved granola bars is easy! You will need a combination of nuts, seeds and coconut that are combine them with sugar-free syrup, almond butter and an egg.

The secret ingredient that takes these keto granola bars take to a whole new level is Allulose syrup. Just like granulated Allulose, this diabetic-friendly sweetener is one of the best options to use on a keto diet.

For extra flavour you can then add vanilla, cinnamon or cocoa powder. If you add chocolate chips, use at least 85% chocolate or use sugar-free chocolate sweetened with keto-approved sweeteners. I also like to add a pinch of salt, especially with chocolate. If you prefer your granola bars with dried fruit like raising, try adding a few Low-carb Cranberry Raisins.

Have any allergies? Feel free to swap one ingredient with another. You can easily make these granola bars nut-free and/or coconut-free. These bars also use an egg although I did test them without it and used a little more almond butter instead. Egg-free bars will be a little more crumbly so keep that in mind when your slice them.

How to Make Allulose Syrup at Home

If you can't find Allulose syrup, you can easily make your own. To do that, you'll need 1 cup (200 g/ 7.1 oz) granulated Allulose and 1 cup (240 ml) water. Place both in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring, until the allulose has dissolved and the mixture slightly thickened, for 7 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Allulose surup can be stored in a sealed jar at room temperature for several weeks.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Since allulose is not sold in Italy, do you think it can be substituted with something else?
Thank you!

You could use Erythritol or Xylitol, and maybe add some gelatin powder to get similar effects. Or maybe a pinch of xanthan gum. It won't create the same sticky/gooey texture but they will still be delicious. Or you could add 1/2 to 1 more egg as the mixture will be crumblier without the allulose.

Ok, thank you so much! I will definitely try them as I am looking for snacks that my daughter can eat during breaks at school. (we do not have restrictions on nuts).

NO OVEN TEMPERATURE shown!

Fixed!
