I love finding new snacks that fit into my keto diet, and these Keto Coconut Bars are a great addition to my repertoire. Not only are they delicious, but they’re also super easy to make. I can whip up a batch in 30 minutes and have them ready to go during the week.
So, what about Keto Coconut Bars? Is coconut allowed on the keto diet?
Yes, coconut is allowed on the keto diet. Coconut is a nutritious food that is high in fat and low in carbs. Coconut also contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are a type of saturated fat that is metabolized differently than other types of fat. MCTs are absorbed and metabolized quickly, so they are a great source of energy for people on the keto diet.
How to make Keto Coconut Bars
The ingredients in this keto coconut bar recipe are all keto-friendly and low-carb. The egg whites are a source of protein, while the shredded coconut provides healthy fats and fiber. The keto:sweet erythritol is a sugar substitute that has no impact on blood sugar levels. The chocolate chips are optional, but they add a delicious chocolate flavor to the bars.
Once your oven is preheated to 350 degrees, combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Then, line an 8×8 or 9×9 pan with parchment paper and pour the coconut mixture into it. If desired, top it with a few extra sugar-free chocolate chips. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until golden and firm, then let cool and cut the keto coconut bars into squares.
