Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Without the Carbs
Nothing beats a warm chocolate chip cookie situation, and these keto chocolate chip cookie bars are going to become your favorite sweet treat for summer! Made with wholesome ingredients like almond butter, avocado oil, and monkfruit sugar, this dessert has 5 grams protein per serving, which is pretty good for a cookie! Each bar has 190 calories, 4 grams net carbs, and 17 grams healthy fats to round out the nutrition profile. Of course, you’d never know how good-for-you these bars are by how delicious they taste!
In addition to being keto, these chocolate chip cookie bars are also completely vegan and paleo-friendly! Instead of using real eggs, we use “flax” eggs to bind our dessert together. All you need is flaxseed meal, water, and 10 minutes for the mixture to gel and the egg-free magic to happen! Since our dessert is keto-friendly, we subbed coconut sugar for monkfruit sugar, which is to thank for this dessert only having 4 grams net carbs per serving! We find monkfruit sugar to be sweeter than coconut sugar, despite having zero grams of net carbs. It’s amazing how many great keto-friendly options are on the market these days!
In our book, you can never add too many chocolate chips to a cookie, but if you are following a keto meal plan, make sure to purchase keto-friendly chocolate chips! When we’re feeling fancy, we like to use a combination of chocolate chips and chopped chocolate for those gram-worthy pools of melted chocolate. We recommend eating these keto chocolate chip cookie bars while they’re still warm and gooey from the oven, but you could always slice into bars and store in the fridge and warm up for later! Don’t forget a nice pinch of flaky sea salt on your keto chocolate chip cookie bars for that perfect salty sweet sensation.
