Special Ingredients

Vanilla Coconut Bars

De-Bittered Stevia has no unpleasant aftertaste or bitterness like typical stevia sweeteners.

 

unsweetened shredded coconut

Unsweetened coconut flakes are high in fiber and protein, with 1-2 net carbs per serving.

Keto Cereal Recipe: Toast coconut in a skillet on low heat, remove and cool, add berries and heavy cream for instant keto cereal.

 

Organic Coconut Oil

Organic coconut oil burns fat rapidly. Fats from coconut oil aren’t stored. Instead, they’re used immediately for energy.

Coconut oil stays fresh up to two years, has a nice buttery flavor, and is one of the healthiest choices for cooking or baking.

 

bulletproof coffee best MCT Oil

Left Coast’s MCT oil blend is identical in quality to the Bulletproof brand.

MCT converts into energy faster than other oils, ignites your body’s metabolic rate and helps maintain healthy levels of cholesterol.

Triple filtered, pharmaceutical grade and USA-made.

 

Raising the Bar

Need a more sophisticated low carb dessert? Create a colorful, layered look. Spread two batches on top of each other in the container.

 

raspberry coconut bars

Raspberry Coconut Bars

Make two batches: one with vanilla, and one with 1/4 cup of raspberries added. Press one layer into the bottom of the container. Chill or freeze until firm. Press the second layer on top and return to fridge or freezer.

This recipe also works well with blueberries.

 

lemon coconut bars

Lemon Coconut Bars

Brighten up your bars with 1 teaspoon lemon juice and a little lemon zest. In a pinch, use a few spoonfuls of lemon flavored sugar-free Jello (powder – not fully prepared Jello).

This recipe also works well with lime and lime zest.
