How To Make Keto Granola Bars
If you like my low-carb granola bars recipe you’ll love these as a nut-free version.
All you need to make them are the ingredients below.
- Hemp hearts – or also known as hemp seeds are seeds from the hemp plants. Yes, you read that well, the plants that also give cannabis, except the seeds contain only traces of THC so you are totally safe eating them. Hemp seeds have amazing nutritional value. They are high in healthy fats, fiber, and proteins, and very low in carbs with only 1.4 grams of net carbs per serving of 30 grams. Amongst all seeds, they are the ones with the optimal ratio of fatty acids, omega-6 to omega-3 meaning they are powerful seeds for healthy skin and reduce heart disease. If you are vegan, they will bring you the highest amount of plant-based protein, 25% of calories are protein which by weight is similar to beef. Amazing, right?
- Pumpkin Seeds – Pumpkin seeds are also great seeds to have on a keto diet.
- Chia Seeds – chia are superfoods very rich in fiber and nutrients.
- Sunflower Seeds
- Unsweetened Coconut Flakes – or unsweetened shredded coconut.
- Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – you can use refined coconut oil or unrefined. Unrefined is the purest but it has a strong coconut flavor. I recommend refined coconut oil if you are not as much a coconut lover as me.
- Sunflower Seed butter – this is an amazing nut-free alternative to peanut butter on a low-carb diet. Sunflower seed butter is often found in the healthy food store or organic aisle of your supermarket.
These hemp seed bars are no-bake granola bars and must be stored in the fridge or they soften too much.
You can also freeze the bars the day before going on a trip or hike. Carry them frozen, they will defrost along the way.
Enjoy the lovely keto granola bars and before you dig in, share a pic with me on Instagram! You know I look at all of them and love it.
