    Crispy, crunchy keto granola bars are a staple in my house with my two active boys. These homemade granola bars are something easy they can grab whether they are packing their lunch or needing a quick bite before soccer practice. They also make a good option for keto camping or hiking.

    I like that these low carb granola bars are easy to make and versatile. So I can use a mix of nuts and seeds – even through in chocolate chips – if I want to make a different flavor. Feel free to add any nuts or seeds you have in your pantry.

    Keto approved cereal

    I like to add some keto cereal to my low carb granola bars. There are a couple different manufacturers that make sugar-free cereal. And they come in all kinds of different flavors so you can experiment with different types when it comes to make these gluten free granola bars.

    Magic Spoon is the cereal that I used for this recipe. All of there cereals are in a characteristic “O” shape. They have a wide range of flavors – from Frosted, Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Fruity, Blueberry and MORE! All of their cereals are gluten free and grain free. They are about 3 grams net carbs per serving.

    Another keto cereal option you can use for this nut bar recipe is HighKey. They also have low carb cereals that are protein based and gluten free.

    Sugar free syrup

    The glue that helps hold these low carb bars together is the maple syrup, but be sure to get sugar-free maple syrup. My favorite brand is by ChocZero. You can save 10% off your order with my affiliate link KETOFOCUS.

    There are other brands that make sugar-free syrups. Some are even available at the grocery store.

    Cereal bar storage

    Store your leftover keto granola bars at room temperature in an air tight container or bag. They will stay fresh for about 7-10 days, that is, if they last that long!
