Sugar and Grain-Free Granola Bar (low Carb)

desserts recipes snacks Nov 13, 2019

If you're looking for a QUICK, grain-free, sugar-free granola bar then you must try this recipe.  It takes minutes to throw together and it tastes great. I tried making this, trying to make grain-free granola and I quickly realized the recipe would make a great bar.  It holds together pretty well and it crisps really nicely.  I have nothing against grains (trust me, I do a lot of baking with grains), but some of my clients have difficulty digesting them, and I wanted to offer them something that was easy to make and nutritious.

You can bake this for approximately 20 minutes and you'll have a chewy bar. Or bake it for the full 30 minutes and you'll have a crispy bar (which is the one I prefer!).

Total time:
Serves: 12
Grain-free and sugar-free, protein-packed snack.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup almonds slivered or chopped
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds + 6 tbsp water
  • 4 tbsp monk fruit sweetener
  • pinch salt
  • splash vanilla
  • 1/4 cup 70% dark chocolate chips (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Make chia egg replacer and allow to thicken (3-5 minutes), by mixing chia seeds with water. If you use warm water, the mixture will thicken more quickly.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the nut mixture and toss give it a quick toss. Then add the chia egg replacer and vanilla and stir until the mixture is evenly covered.
  4. Place in a flat baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pat and press down until you have a thin layer. Try to make it thin having one layer of nuts on the sheet if you'd like a crispy texture. Otherwise, the bars will be chewy.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes for a chewy bar and 30 minutes for a crispy bar.
  6. Once fully baked, remove from the oven and with a sharp knife cut into bars. You'll get approximately 12 bars from this recipe.
  7. If you want to use the chocolate chips, sprinkle them on after you cut them to avoid making a big mess.
  8. Store them in an airtight container and leave them on the counter or in the freezer.
