Keto Granola Bars/Cereal
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut shredded or flaked
- 1 1/2 cup nuts and/or seeds chopped
- 2 1/4 cup Keto Hot Cereal Mix
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup butter melted
- 1/3 cup keto friendly sweetener
- 2 Tbsp cocoa nibs may use cocoa powder
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup berries optional
Preheat oven to 350° F. and prepare a 13x9" baking dish by greasing or spraying (could try lining with parchment, though I didn't try this).
In mixer bowl add dry ingredients and mix well.
Add eggs and mix again.
Add berries if using.
in a microwave save dish melt butter (about 30-60 seconds on high)
Add butter to mixture and mix thoroughly, it will be the consistency of a thick cookie dough
Press dough until evenly distributed in the prepared baking dish.
Bake about 25-30 minutes or until center is cooked. It will be like a cookie bar. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes before cutting into bars.
Remove bars carefully from baking dish and place on parchment baking sheet or dehydrator trays.
Dry bars in oven or dehydrator at about 150° F. for 6-8 hours (when bars are completely dried and slightly crumbly). You may want to stop at this stage and use them as a granola bar, or crumble them up and use as granola cereal.
I store these in the refrigerator even though they are dried, due to the use of hemp hearts and flax seeds, which can become rancid tasting if not refrigerated (not sure if this is necessary).
