Are Granola Bars Healthy?
Eating low carb can really be tricky business, especially when you need on the go snacks that are easy to grab. Granola bars have mistakenly been the McDonalds in the health world for a fast-paced snack or meal. But most store-bought bars are riddled with unhealthy carbs, fats, and sugars.
Finding a tasty low carb granola bar recipe is hard! It is every better if you can find a good sugar free granola bar recipe as well! This baobab and chocolate low carb granola bar recipe, does both! It is low carb (from Trim Healthy Mama's) and is not riddled with unhealthy sugars.
What is the Best Low Carb Snack Bar?
It's true, there are some really good low carb snack bars. Trim Healthy Mama recently came out with these amazing Chocolate & Strawberry bars. I've tried them both and I couldn't be more pleased with them, but sometimes my wallet dosen't dive deep enough for those endulgences.
If you are looking for more options for low carb snacks, I talk more about options for those that follow Trim Healthy Mama and Keto in my article, "The Balance of a Trim Healthy Mama Pregnancy with Personal Choice Products." It is important to note that many of the selections I talk about are 'personal choice products' and everyone should do their own research to best decide if these are of benefit for you.
THM Granola Bars
THM granola bar recipes are abounding, and most of them are fantastic! Joy Filled Eats has an amazing recipe that is a more nut-based granola bar. An amazing THM granola bar that is chewy is from Low Carb Maven, these are great for kiddos.
THM also has their own granola bars , and like I've said above, they are amazing! I find however, they are a rare treat, and making granola bars for on the go tends to be a wee bit cheaper.
The THM granola bars come in two flavors now and the Baobab Biss (pictured and linked below) is certainly my favorite. They also have a chocolate bar that totally tastes like a healthy tootsie roll!

Why Make These Granola Bars?
Why make these when there are other great alternatives to low carb and sugar free snacks? There are a few things that make these delectable bars worth your time. First, they are flowing with immune-boosting Baobab. This secret ingredient is filled with vitamin c and antioxidants. In fact, it has the most antioxidants of any food known on the planet!
They are packed with protein! These little treats have almost 15 grams of protein per bar, and it's clean and healthy whey and collagen!
I have been finding that these are a lifesaver for on the go mornings. I typically wrap them in wax paper and place them in a sealed container in the refrigerator. They make great snacks for pregnant and nursing mamas, but they also have been helpful when I don't have time in the morning to make a typical breakfast. Just grab one and go!
Ingredients for the Sugar Free Granola Bar Recipe
- 1 cup whey protein
- 4 tbsp collagen
- 4 tbsp oat fiber
- 4 tbsp baobab powder
- ¼ + 2 tbsp cup stevia blend or gentle sweet
- 1 tsp glucomannan
- ½ tsp raspberry extract
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 5 tbsp water
- 1 tsp MCT or coconut oil
These are so easy to make, all they require is a little time and a food processor or blender. You blend together the dry ingredients, and then add the wet ingredients, and wala! The mixture should be a thick play-doh consistency. Add the water 1 tbsp at a time to make sure it does not get too wet. I used these molds from Amazon, but you can even just shape them into rectangles yourself!
You can even take the low carb granola bar recipe and turn it into a protein ball recipe!
