Frozen Coconut Keto Snack Bars

Frozen Coconut Keto Snack Bars

This snack bars recipe is a slightly modified version from my friend Megan Kelly in order to fit into a keto lifestyle as her original was using a higher carb form of chocolate chips.  She has an incredible blog and is a Licensed Esthetician specializing in holistic nutrition, woman’s hormones, and spiritual health.

Snack Bars Notes

When you pull these out of the freezer after 30 mins they should be fairly easy to cut through.  If not, than let them sit out for a few mins and they will soften enough to cut through.  You can use any nuts you like such as almonds, walnuts, macadamia or cashews.  Go with what you have or what your body responds best too.

If you are avoiding nuts due to a nut allergy or if you are on our autoimmune elimination or digestive health restoration program, you can use a pure coconut butter instead and omit the chocolate chips.

For this recipe, we love using the Keto PROTEIN as it is full of healthy ingredients such as MCT oil powder, organic bone broth protein and organic bone broth oil.  These nutrients support your gut, skin, hair and metabolism.  This also has ashwaghanda, ginger and reishi mushroom to support your stress response and inflammatory levels.

They have the maple, which tastes great and is caffeine free and the vanilla and chocolate which both contain coffee bean extract so there is some caffeine to boost energy and metabolism if you are going to use that during the day.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is an outstanding snack bar to have on hand that helps your body burn fat for fuel.  It fits right into a ketogenic diet nutrition plan, is very satiating and is easy on the digestive tract.  These are also a great after school or mid-day snack your kids will love!

The combination of coconut fats and macadamia or cashew has an incredible flavor.  Coconut naturally hardens in cooler temperatures so freezing this makes these bars very hard and you can pull them out of the freezer as you head out the door on your way to work or to run errands and it would take a lot of heat and time for them to melt.  So they are fairly portable, but I would recommend putting them in a little cooler if you plan to have them sitting in the car for a long time on a hot day.

Coconut fats are full of medium chain fats that are easier on the digestive system and turn into ketones faster than most other fats.  There are healthy fibers in the nuts or coconut butter that you choose as well to support the microbiome.

I like the Lily’s chocolate chips because they have no sugar, are low carb and are flavored with stevia and erythritol.  You would need to omit these if you are trying to heal an autoimmune condition or severe leaky gut as chocolate can be an issue, as can sugar alcohols.
