Low Carb Chocolate Snack Bars
Looking for a super easy but very delicious dessert? Keto chocolate bark is just what you are looking for. It may be one of the easiest desserts we have ever made but we just can’t stop eating it! It is seriously addictive. It is salty, sweet, and sticks to the keto diet. So let us show you how to make such a perfect dessert.
It all starts with keto chocolate. There are a lot of different low-carb or sugar-free chocolate brands out there that you can choose from. You can even make your own keto chocolate using unsweetened bakers chocolate, powdered erythritol, butter, heavy cream, and vanilla (check out our recipe here if making your own keto chocolate bar sounds fun!). We are big fans of Lily’s brand of low carb chocolate and use it often to bake and cook with. The dark chocolate baking chips that we use to make our keto chocolate bark is sweetened with stevia. It has a wonderful taste and could easily be mistaken for “real”, high sugar chocolate. The chocolate chips also melt nicely which is key to this recipe.

The next important part of this low carb chocolate bark recipe is the granola. Once the chocolate has been melted and mixed, granola is mixed in and sprinkled on the top of the chocolate. You may be wondering how granola could be low carb. That is because granola is usually made with oats and oats are very high in carbs. However, the So Nourished brand of granola is made with nuts, keto-approved dried fruits, and a perfect blend of erythritol and monk fruit to sweeten the mix.
There are a few different So Nourished granolas that you can choose to use. We love the blueberry almond granola which is full of almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds and so much more. We often eat this granola straight out of the bag! The nuts and blueberry flavor pair well with the dark chocolate of the bark and also gives the dessert a nice crunch. If you want to switch up the recipe a little, try the coconut casher granola or the maple pecan. They all work well and are all low carb!
Speaking of switching it up, you can also try using different kinds of chocolate to make your keto bark, A low carb white chocolate or milk chocolate would work great as well. Swirl in a drop or two of peppermint extract to make a “candy cane” bark. Or, skip the granola and just sprinkle straight nuts over the top of the chocolate. This recipe is so flexible that you can really craft your own bark. Just stick to the quantity of keto chocolate and coconut oil we suggest and it should come out great!
Break this bark up into small pieces and wrap them in cellophane bags for gifts. Or, store it in an airtight container in your freezer so you always have a ready-to-eat keto treat on hand. Our keto chocolate bark is fancy enough to be sold in gourmet health food stores but easy enough to make in 5 minutes. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Enjoy.
- Line a flat baking sheet with parchment paper and place in the fridge to chill the pan.
- Place the lily's dark chocolate chips in a double boiler and melt the chips slowly, stirring occasionally.
- Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, stir in the coconut oil.
- Mix 1/2 cup of the granola into the chocolate, coating it completely.
- Pour the melted chocolate mix onto the prepared sheet tray and use a metal offset spatula to spread the chocolate across the pan. You want the chocolate to be about 1/4 of an inch thick.
- Sprinkle the remaining granola across the top of the chocolate.
- Place the sheet pan in the fridge and let cool completely. Once firm, break the bark into pieces and enjoy! Store in a cool dark place so the chocolate doesn't melt.
