Are breakfast bars Keto-friendly?

Breakfast bars can be Keto-friendly depending on the ingredients used to make them. To be considered Keto-friendly, breakfast bars should generally have a low-carb and high-fat content. Ideally, look for breakfast bars that are made with ingredients like nuts, seeds, and coconut, along with natural sugar substitutes like stevia, allulose, or monk fruit sweetener. Avoid bars containing grains, refined sugars, or artificial sweeteners, as they can spike blood sugar levels and hinder ketosis. Ultimately, it's best to read the labels and choose breakfast bars specifically made for the Keto diet or make your own at home using Keto-friendly ingredients to ensure they align with your dietary needs.

Can you customize this recipe?

There are several ways to customize this recipe. For a touch of sweetness, mix in ¼ cup of a Keto-friendly sweetener like monk fruit sweetener or stevia. If you prefer a fruity twist, consider adding dried cranberries or blueberries. For added crunch, you can include chopped almonds, pecans, or walnuts. To create a more indulgent treat, sprinkle in some dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs. Lastly, to enhance the aromatic flavors, you may add a dash of vanilla extract or almond extract.

How to store these Keto breakfast seed bars?

To store these Keto breakfast seed bars, it's important to keep them in an airtight container or a ziplock bag to maintain their freshness and prevent moisture from seeping in. Place the bars in a single layer, separating them with parchment paper or wax paper to avoid sticking. Store the container in a cool, dry place, such as a pantry or cupboard. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the bars if you prefer them chilled. When properly stored, these bars can typically stay fresh for up to 2 weeks. If you want to extend their shelf life, you can also freeze the bars individually wrapped in plastic wrap or placed in freezer-safe bags for up to 3 months. Just make sure to thaw them at room temperature before enjoying them.

40 min

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 325 F/ 180C. Line an 8-inch/20 cm baking dish with parchment paper. To a medium-size bowl, add the sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, flaxseeds, shredded coconut, cinnamon, and sunflower seed butter.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Fold until combined and all the seeds are well coated in the seed butter. Pour the mixture into the lined baking dish and press it down firmly with a spatula until you have an even layer. Transfer the dish to the oven and bake for about 30 minutes.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Remove the dish from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Using a large spoon or spatula, press down the mixture again, and then allow it to cool completely. Once cooled, gently lift the bars with the parchment from the pan and transfer them to a cutting board.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 even bars. Serve immediately. Store in an airtight container and place a piece of parchment between the bars to avoid sticking together.

      I found adding a tbsp of MCT oil helped it to stay together. 😋
