In a world where protein bars and low carb bars seem to be at the start of each checkout lane, there’s a lot of confusion as to what’s ketogenic and what’s not. Truth be told, there’s very few bars on the market now that are keto friendly (they’re mostly protein and pretty low fat), and there’s tons of bars stocked full of high GI sugar alcohols using marketing to camouflage themselves as low carb. The biggest danger with these high GI bars are that even though they can say they are low carb nutritionally, they will raise blood sugar and insulin levels tremendously. Ultimately, they’re able to knock you out of ketosis.
That’s where these bars come in – they’re pretty easy to make, can be refrigerated or frozen depending on what texture you’re going after, and can be carried around with you if you’re in a pinch (keep in mind if they get too warm they will start to melt a bit). Best of all, they’re keto-friendly! If you like a more crumbly texture, feel free to run the cashews through a food processor prior to adding them into the mix – this way you get a lot of small chunks rather than larger pieces.
