Grand Granola Bars: Easy and Low Carb!

Granola bars that are low carb, trim healthy mama s, easy to make, and yummy!

I haven’t had a granola bar in years! If you are looking for an easy, delicious, on plan granola bar, I have a recipe for you. This recipe is so easy to make and it’s hubby approved. That’s always a win for me. My hubby is pretty picky, especially when it comes to things with sweeteners in them. He has had one everyday with his lunch and loves them.

These are great for packing, eating on the go, and freezing.

I love having something I can throw in my bag and take with me when I run to town. I didn’t add any fruit to this. If you really wanted to, you could add some sugar-free dried cranberries or something similar that is low carb. I didn’t want to push my luck and kept it pretty simple and used flavors that I know my hubby would like.

Use nuts and chocolate that you and your family like.

You need 3 cups of nuts for the recipe. I did add 1 cup of oatmeal to the recipe. If you cut this into 18 bars, that’s 1/18 of a cup of oats. If you cut this recipe into 12 bars, that’s still only 1/12th of a cup of oats. That’s less than 4 grams of net carbs. You can leave them out and add an extra cup of nuts if you want to avoid the carbs that are in the oats. I really like the oats, it makes it feel and taste more like a regular granola bar. Here’s the recipe.

Low Carb Granola Bars


  • 3 C Nuts: I used pecans, sliced almonds, and cashews
  • 1 C Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/4 C Ground Flax
  • 1/2 t Cinnamon
  • 1/2 C Brown Swerve
  • 1/2 C Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 C Butter
  • 1/4 C Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 C Sugar-free Chocolate chips or chopped 85% bar, plus a little bit to sprinkle on top


  • In a medium saucepan, add butter, heavy cream, and sweetener. Bring to a slow boil.
  • While bringing the mixture to a boil, mix together nuts.
  • Add flax and stir.
  • Add oats and cinnamon. Stir.
  • Add chocolate chips and stir. Or dump all of the above ingredients together and stir. I don't know why I did it like this.
  • Once the mixture turns a nice brown color, add vanilla and peanut butter.
  • Scrape the cooked mixture on top of the nuts and oats, and stir.
  • Once mixed, place in a 9×13 pan. I lined it with aluminum foil. Sprinkle with extra chocolate, if desired. Press into the mixture.
  • Place in freezer or fridge. Once solid, remove from fridge. Cut into 18 or 12 pieces. Store in fridge.

    Jennifer, Tell me more about what kind of nuts are used in this recipe, please. Are they raw and unsalted or salted and roasted? Or unsalted and roasted? Thanks!

      I am pretty sure every time I make it, the only nuts that are salted are peanuts. Everything else is in bags that are often used for baking. And, I rarely make it with the same exact mixture. I just look in my cabinets and make it work whatever random nuts are in there.
