Coconut lovers, is this for you?
Placate your sweet tooth with this healthy 3-Ingredient No Bake Keto Vegan Coconut Bars recipe! These low carb, keto and vegan friendly coconut bars are seriously addictive and take minutes to whip up!
Using just three healthy ingredients, it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare, you’ll never need to buy store bought candy bars or snacks. Did I mention that these addictive coconut bars are also ketogenic, vegan, and healthy too?
These No Bake Keto Vegan Coconut Bars are so easy to make, and super tasty little bite sized treats. These are keto and vegan friendly, filled with healthy coconut.
Their flavor is what makes me love these tasty treats so much. They are definitely a coconut treat! They are deceitful also; they taste like they’re filled with naughtiness, but in reality, they’re filled with niceness!
I have found that snacks that are keto friendly are the most satisfying. I’d always been one to struggle to find a snack or dessert which satisfies the sweet tooth, without the urge to go back for more. And these No Bake Keto Vegan Coconut bars fill that craving and more.
Low carb and keto sweeteners
I chose to use a Wholesome Yum Keto Maple Syrup, since it provides the best sticky texture for the coconut bars. It resembles the texture of traditional maple syrup, honey, or other like-sweeteners.
Luckily for me, the sweeteners I use in almost all of my recipes are naturally low carb and keto-friendly. These are usually in the form of monk fruit sweetener.
If you are not on a sugar-free or low carb diet, you can use any of your favorite sweeteners and they will work fantastically.
Low carb and sugar free chocolate options
Another variation of the delicious No Bake Keto Vegan Coconut Bars is to dip them into chocolate. And the easiest way to make low carb chocolate (whether it be for coating the bars or allowing it to firm up into bars themselves) is to simply combine coconut oil with cocoa powder and your preferred sweetener.
Granted, we don’t all have time to do this or find it easier to use a packaged chocolate alternative. If that is the case, these Chocolate Chips by the Keto Factory are a great alternative. They are not only low carb, but are also sugar free.
