Nut & seed butter is perfect for making fat bombs and keto treats. I used Coconut & Pecan Butter to make these maple & pecan protein bars. They are filling and nutritious enough to be used as a meal replacement.

Keep them in the fridge (or freezer) and use as a quick source of energy when you have no time to cook or need a quick post-workout ketogenic meal. To see how easy it is to make healthy low-carb bars, check out my video recipe!

Note: I used dark chocolate because it's low in sugar. If you prefer to use unsweetened chocolate, remember to add extra sweetener. Chocolate coating was used for 8 large bars - you may need to use more if making 12-16 small bars.

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.

i have a question about collagen! I see some recipes call for it but the only kind my health food store had was bonebroth collagen... i bought some but wanted to know your thoughts? Is there a difference between what you recommend and bone broth collagen?

Hi Cat, different collagen powders vary in quality but they should work the same way.

We made these and they are our new favorite protein bars. Thanks and YUM!

Awesome, thank you for your kind words! 😊

Hey Martina,
Love the recipe! Is it possible to use pea protein?

Yes, you can use pea protein isolate too - I like the one from NuZest: Product Review and Giveaway: Nuzest

Hi Martina, would love to make this recipe. Where do you buy your food flavoring/extracts in the UK? I couldn't find maple syrup extract on Thanks!

Hi Sylvia, I noticed they call it "maple flavor" and it's the one I used in this recipe: Amazon link

I love that you give alternate measures for substitutes!!  I'm not a fan of protein powder, but I LOVE collagen and love to use cacao butter over coconut oil in baking.  Looking forward to making this!

Thank you Cindi! Hope you like them 😊

They look amazing, as usual. I must try 😜

Thank you Yevgeny!
