I'm going to show you how to make delicious keto protein bars. These healthy protein bars are so easy to make, and you can keep them in the refrigerator or the freezer. Just take one out when you need it, and have it right after a meal.

It can be difficult to identify if the products you're shopping for are actually healthy or not. For a product to be keto-friendly, it has to contain less than 50 grams of carbohydrates. The label "keto" or "keto-friendly" has nothing to do with the type of carbs or the quality of the nutrients. I believe some keto-friendly products are even dangerous.

It's crucial that you check the labels on the products you buy. Even if the product is keto-friendly, it may not be healthy. It's not "lose weight to get healthy"—it's "get healthy to lose weight". To get healthy, you have to consume healthy ingredients.

Healthy Keto Homemade Protein Bar Recipe Ingredients:

1 stick of butter (or 1/2 cup coconut butter or coconut oil)

2 Tbsp xylitol or erythritol

1 cup coconut flour, whole egg protein powder, or whey protein powder

1 cup crushed nuts

1 cup chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla extract A pinch of sea salt

Directions: Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Form the bars and place them on the cookie sheet. Put the cookie sheet in the freezer for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until the bars have hardened. Store the bars in the freezer or refrigerator. If you store them in the freezer, take the bar out and leave it at room temperature for about 5 minutes before eating.
