Special Notes

If you are sensitive to almonds, you can use another nut butter such as cashew or macadamia nut butter.  Of course, it wouldn’t be called almond butter bars in that case! The keto maple syrup is made out of monk fruit and a non-GMO, corn based vegetable fiber.  There is also another brand, called Lakanto that is monk fruit and the sugar alcohol erythritol.

You could also try this with stevia although it dosn’t stick together as well.  If you do stevia, I would recommend reducing the dosage by half.  So 1 tbsp of stevia instead of 2 for the coconut layer.  If you aren’t trying to go low-carb, you can use honey or organic maple syrup with this.

Dr Jockers Comments

These coconut keto almond butter bars are a great tasting snack or dessert that you can enjoy that will help you burn fat, improve your energy levels and support brain function.  They are a perfect thing to have on hand when your kids come home from school and want some food on the go!

Coconut is loaded with healthy medium chain fats that turn into ketones within the body to support energy and brain health.  Almond butter contains healthy fats and trace minerals to support good energy production.  The coconut flour and coconut flakes also provide really great fiber to improve the microbiome.

Using a natural, non-sugary sweetener is the key in order to make these taste great but not impact our blood sugar levels.  Try out the monk fruit syrup or stevia and see which you like better.  We would love to hear your experience in the comments section below!
