These Low Carb Red Pepper and Cream Cheese Pinwheels might be one of my favourite things ever. They have been made by my Mom for years as a party appetizer. Everyone always becomes obsessed with them and asks for the recipe immediately!
Delicious, easy-to-make keto granola bars that you can prepare ahead of time for an easy on-the-go snack!
These are so good! They are soft, chewy, crunchy..everything you could want in a low carb snack bar.
Keto Granola Bar Ingredients:
Almond Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
Splenda & Truvia – Since I’ve re-made this recipe many times, I’ve switched over to using a monkfruit/erythritol blend instead of splenda and truvia. The reason being.. It’s much more keto-friendly in terms of it’s effect on insulin levels and it probably has the closest taste to real sugar! I highly recommend trying it out. I use this blend from SoNourished.
Vitafiber Syrup – I now use the Choc Zero syrup in place of this! You can order it on amazon. It's great for any no-bake keto or low carb recipes!
Tools I Used to Make Low Carb Granola Bars
– Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
– Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
2 tbsp Splenda, or another sweetener that measures like sugar
1 tbsp stevia sweetened chocolate chips, 15g, I use the Krisda Brand
Preheat oven to 300*F
In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
Mix in the butter, syrup and vanilla until a sticky mixture is formed.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment and spread the mixture out, pressing it into a thin rectangular shape. (You can spray your fingers with Pam if it is sticking)
Bake for 11-15min or until the edges are lightly browned and the centre is cooked through.
Remove from oven and cool completely before slicing into 4 or 8 bars. (Put it in the freezer for faster cooling, the bars will also harden-up as time goes on!)
Eat immediately or store in an air-tight container once completely cooled. Enjoy your Keto Granola Bars!
