Snickerdoodles, Meet Ghee
Besides having a fun name, snickerdoodles are one of our favorite cookies! It’s just hard to beat the chewy texture and yummy combination of cinnamon and sugar that adorns each bite. To give this favorite a healthy twist, we whipped up these snickerdoodle cookie bars, made with ghee and sweetened with monkfruit sugar to keep them keto-friendly! With only 3 grams net carbs per bar, this dessert will definitely need to be added to your keto-friendly sweets roster.
These tasty keto snickerdoodle bars are made with almond butter and almond flour, giving them more nutritional value than you’d find in your traditional baked goods. As a matter of fact, almond flour is high in magnesium and vitamin E, in addition to being blood sugar-friendly. The combination of these two elements also reduces the need for any other binders, which is why almond flour is one of our favorites for gluten-free baking! In addition, almond flour is low in carbohydrates, with only about 4 grams net carbs per 2 tablespoons.
Instead of using coconut oil or vegan butter for our snickerdoodle cookie bars, we opt for ghee, which gives them a deliciously buttery taste and texture! Ghee is a clarified butter with milk solids removed, making it paleo-friendly, and safe for those with just a mild intolerance to dairy. You can use regular ghee in this recipe, or they also make vanilla ghee, which is equally as delicious!
Each batch of keto snickerdoodle cookie bars makes 12 pieces, with 178 calories, 16 grams healthy fats, and 6 grams protein each.

These bars are the perfect thing to whip up and let bake in the oven while you warm up a plate from our keto meal plan. What’s better than a nice meal with dessert waiting for you?
