Written by Chrissy Arsenault, MBA, RDN, LD
Keto granola bar recipes are all the rage.
There are so many fun ways to experiment with keto granola bars beyond eating them out of the package. Munk Pack Keto Granola Bars only contain 1g of sugar and 2-3g net carbs per bar. They’re made with a nutritious mix of nuts, seeds, but butter, and a natural, plant-based sweetener called allulose.
These recipes are keto-friendly, meaning that they’re rich in heart-healthy fats and low in net carbs. Regardless of whether or not you follow a keto lifestyle, give these healthy keto granola bar recipes a whirl.
Blueberry Yogurt Keto Granola Bar Bites
Recipe makes 4 servings
Net Carbs: 3g
- 2 Munk Pack Blueberry Almond Vanilla Keto Granola Bars
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
- 1 tablespoon sweetener of your choice (our favorite is allulose!)
- 2 tablespoons nut butter of your choice
- 1 tablespoon flax seed + 1 tablespoon water (if you’re an omnivore, you can use 1egg white instead of flaxseed)
- Cooking spray
- About ½ cup vegan dairy alternative yogurt
- A handful of fresh blueberries
- (Optional) grated lemon rind (lemon zest)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Chop the unwrapped keto granola bars into small pieces or place them in a resealable zipper storage bag and use a rolling pin to break up the keto granola bars. Place the crushed bars, cinnamon, and salt in a medium to large bowl. Combine sweetener and nut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 20 seconds, then stir until smooth.
- Add the nut butter mixture and flaxseed mix to the granola mixture. Toss or stir to coat.
- Coat mini-muffin tin with cooking spray. Divide the mixture evenly and press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the tin.
- Bake for 8-12 minutes (until edges are brown and crisp). Allow to cool completely.
- Carefully remove granola bites. Use a small spoon to add about 1 tbsp yogurt to each bite. Top with blueberries and (optional) lemon zest. Enjoy!
With the refreshing flavor combination of lemon and blueberry, this bite-sized treat is sure to be a hit! If making these for the week, simply wait to add the yogurt until you are ready to enjoy. Not a fan of blueberry or lemon? Simply swap out the flavors with other flavors like blackberries, lime, and raspberries!

Coconut Cocoa Chip Macaroons
Recipe makes 20 servings
Net Carbs: 3g
- 3 tablespoons of ground flaxseed (if you’re an omnivore, you can use egg whites instead of flaxseed)
- 6 tablespoons of water
- 2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
- 1 Munk Pack Coconut Cocoa Chip Keto Granola Bar
- 1/3 cup baking-friendly sweetener of your choice (we recommend allulose!)
- Preheat oven to 320 degrees F. Spray cooking spray or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a separate medium-sized bowl, mix ground flaxseed with water.

- With a measuring spoon or your hand, scoop out and shape into about 20 small balls. Add more coconut flakes as needed if the texture isn’t forming. Leave at least ½ inch between each macaroon.
- Bake for about 15-20 minutes until they are golden and crispy – cookies shouldn’t crumble apart upon touch.
Typical coconut macaroons are so delicious but contain 22g of carbs with 16g of added sugar per two cookies. If you’re seeking a coconut snacking delight that is nutrient-dense but satisfies your sweet tooth, is low in net carbs, and features Munk Pack’s Coconut Cocoa Chip, you won’t want to miss out on this keto-friendly snack!
