Low Carb Granola Bars: Simple, Soft and Chewy

Low Carb Granola Bars: Simple, Soft and Chewy

If you are on social media you probably know that everyone is obsessed with Aimee Song’s Raw Bars. Her video triggered a real hype but since I try to stick to a gluten-free, low-carb lifestyle, I made my own version of healthy granola bars. And even though they are baked, they are just as delicious.

Low-carb Granola Bars

Recipe Difficulty Level: Easy
Recipe Type: Breakfast, Snack
Servings: 8


As you know by now, I am all about simple and easy to recreate recipes. These low-carb granola bars definitely fit the bill and are beyond delicious.

Here’s what you’ll need to make 8 muesli bars:

  • 100g chopped almonds
  • 85g sugar-free maple syrup
  • 65g sugar-free dark chocolate chips
  • 50g chopped walnuts
  • 40g chopped pecan nuts
  • 40g melted coconut oil
  • 30g shredded coconut
  • 30g chopped pepitas
  • 15g sunflower seeds
  • 10g sesame seeds
  • 10g freeze-dried blueberries
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cake and cookie spice

To make these delicious granola bars, start by preheating the oven to 175°C. Then you just have to combine all ingredients and divide the mixture among the granola bar moulds, pressing down with a spoon until compressed. Bake them for about 16 minutes and, finally, flip the moulds immediately after baking onto a cooling rack and put them into the freezer after about 30 minutes.

These granola bars are soft, chewy and oh so yummy.

In about 40 minutes I made 2 batches (= 16 pieces) of these super delicious granola bars and, as a result, decided to bring them to work the next day. They make for a great snack and are, if I am in a hurry in the morning, a great alternative to my usual breakfast choice (e.g. a bowl of coconut porridge or home-made granola). In addition, these muesli bars will keep you rather full because they contain mainly seeds and nuts.

My colleagues at work really enjoyed munching on them. Especially the combination of dark chocolate and freeze-dried blueberries seemed to go down well. What more could you wish for?
