While we do not typically stick to a strict keto diet, our family often likes to keep a balance between indulgent and healthy dishes. If we have bagels for breakfast one day, I try to have fruit and eggs the next day… That sort of thing.

But let’s be very clear: There is nothing better than a snack that is both indulgent and healthy. When I want to cut back on the carbs and enjoy nutritious fats, keto-friendly recipes are on the top of the list. And these crunchy, sweet and nutty keto cereal snack bars are definitely my new number one!

The Best Low Carb Keto Cereal Snack Bars

Here I’ve got a simple and easy low carb cereal bar recipe that you are going to want to make all the time. Whatever your dietary preferences may be, these sweet and crunchy treats can be made to suit your needs!

We used low-carb keto cereal (found at Whole Foods and most large grocery stores), almonds, unsweetened coconut, keto chocolate chips, eggs, and monk fruit sweetener. All the goodies are combined in one bowl, then gently pressed into a pan and quickly baked to light and crispy perfection.

Although my first reaction to keto cereal was skepticism, these low-carb snack bars are basically effortless to make, delicious, and will certainly satisfy a sugar craving.

How to Make Sweet Keto Snack Bars

First, preheat the oven to 350°F. Set out a large mixing bowl, a small bowl (or measuring pitcher), and an 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Line the baking dish with parchment paper and set it aside.

In the mixing bowl, combine the keto cereal, sliced almonds, unsweetened coconut, and chocolate chips.

Recipe Variations

  • I use keto-friendly cinnamon cereal in this recipe. However, feel free to make the bars with whatever cereal you like! There are several great low carb options, like chocolate and maple flavors.
  • For nut free bars you can skip the almonds. Add more cereal and/or coconut to make up the difference.
  • Swap the chocolate chips or split 50/50 with your favorite keto peanut butter chips.
  • Monk fruit is a popular keto sweetener, but you can make these with other low carb sweeteners you prefer.
