How to make Keto Bounty Bars: step-by-step guide

Preparation methods

  • Microwave
  • Refrigeration

Preparation steps

  1. Gather and measure all the ingredients.
  2. Make sure you have all the necessary kitchen tools.
  3. Line your tray with parchment paper.

Instructions

  1. Mix coconut flakes, monk fruit sweetener, xanthan gum, and coconut milk in a bowl until you get a nice, cohesive dough.
  2. Shape the dough into small, rectangular bars.
  3. Set the bars on a parchment-lined tray and chill in the refrigerator for about 45 minutes or until they are set and firm.
  4. For the chocolate coating, put the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30-second bursts, stirring after each, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.
  5. Dip the chilled coconut bars into the melted chocolate, and make sure each bar is evenly coated.
  6. Return the chocolate-coated bars to the tray and refrigerate again until the chocolate shell is solid, typically around 30 minutes.
  7. Once the chocolate has set, your sugar-free keto bounty bars are ready to be savored.

Chef’s pro tip

Make sure your coconut bars are nice and firm before you dip them in the melted chocolate. If they feel a bit squishy, they might fall apart, and we don’t want that! A quick trick is to put them in the freezer for a last-minute chill to ensure they’re solid enough for a perfect chocolate coating.

What to serve with keto bounty bars?

Enjoy these bounty bars on their own, or pair them with other keto desserts. Here are some delicious options:

  • Chia Pudding: A velvety chia pudding and sugar-free bounty bars make the healthiest dessert combo.
  • Pumpkin Spice Latte: The warm flavors of pumpkin spice and coffee add a cool contrast to the bounty bars.
  • Keto Cobbler: The tangy sweetness of the cobbler pairs beautifully with the creamy coconut flavor of the keto bars.

How to make it healthier?

  • Choose dark chocolate with a higher cocoa content for the coating, as it typically contains less sugar.

Time-saving tips

  • Freeze the coconut bars instead of refrigerating them. This will speed up the process of setting and firming up the bars. You can freeze them for about 20-25 minutes instead of refrigerating them for 45 minutes. This way, you can move on to the chocolate coating step sooner, making the overall preparation quicker. Just be sure to monitor them closely in the freezer to ensure they don’t become too hard.

Storage instructions

  • Refrigerator: Store your homemade bounty bars in an airtight container in the fridge. They should last for up to a week.
  • Freezer: If you make a large batch, you can freeze the bars. But be sure to place a parchment paper between each bar to prevent them from sticking.
