Take a cinnamon bun and a caramel slice and merge it together in a keto protein bar and magic is made! Real magic!
I have to say that keto protein bars have quickly become a favourite of mine. They are ridiculously easy to make, are ready in less than 10 minutes and totally hit my “sweet” spot. This week while being on a sweetener free week is especially hard when I had to edit these pictures and I will say it really is an eye opener as to how much I truly love these bars.
You can easily make these into balls or thicker cubes, the mix is readily malleable into any shape.
Best ways to shape your keto protein bars
When making the bars I do where a glove to massage the mix to get a great consistency. If you mix is a bit grainy add a little more MCT, if it is dry heat up a little more syrup and add. When done I actually empty the mix into a cling film lined baking tray, and I cover it with another piece to gently push it into shape and it gives it a nice smoother appearance and doesn’t stick to my fingers.

Variations of Keto Protein Bars
As you may know I already have quite a few protein bar recipes. The Vanilla Nougat Bar is amazing! Easily my favourite! If you haven’t already tried them already then maybe you need to do a double batch of keto protein bars lol. I use the Sukrin products in these bars as it is particularly low carb and low calorie and gives a perfect consistency to the bars. Using it makes these incredibly easy to make and taste amazing. You can find a whole list of my recipes using the Sukrin Products here>>.
The below version is a delicious orange version, you can change up this recipe so easily so dont be afraid to use the any spices, essential oils, or flavourings you love.
Heat Sukrin syrup in a medium pyrex bowl in microwave for 30 seconds or until you see it start to bubble.
Add all ingredients and stir.
Using your hands really mash these ingredients until it starts to form a sticky but dry consistency.
Press into moulds of choice or slice tray. I use a piece of cling film over the top and press flat and smooth with my hands.
1. You can flavour these bars with flavoured WPI, or other spices and extracts.
2. If your mix turns out a little dry heat more syrup and add to the mix.
3. The MCT adds a little consistency to the mix, you can substitute liquid coconut oil. If some "bleeds" out of your bars afterwards this is fine and good for you. lol.
4. The carbs in these is very negligible in one bar the total net carbohydrate for the whole mixed batch was under 4g.
