Keto German Chocolate Bars

When I got married, my mom made a recipe book that included many of our family favorites. I’ve used that recipe book over and over throughout the years. As I’ve been thinking ahead to the holidays and continuing to follow a ketogenic/low carb lifestyle I thought maybe I could tweak some of my mom’s recipes to make them keto/low carb friendly.

Although this is usually a pie recipe and there are keto/low carb pie crust recipes online, I really wanted something quick and super easy to make. Last night I tweaked the recipe to make these keto-friendly German Chocolate Bars instead. I think this might be my favorite keto friendly dessert. It’s chocolatey, coconutty pecan little bites of goodness. If you love chocolate and coconut these German Chocolate Pecan Bars will blow your socks off.

  1. Just made these the other day – not sure if I did something wrong, but after cutting the bars they just fall apart. Is there a way to make them hang together better? Love the flavor, though – they taste great, just a little tricky to eat! 🙂

  2. Hi, when I imported this into My fitness pal app (which thanks for telling me how!) It says 1 serving is 15 carbs? Do you know why it would do that? It’s definitely different from your calculations..just curious, I made them today and am now afraid to eat them! Hah

    1. MyFitnessPal isn’t technically a keto app, so it doesn’t remove the sugar alcohols from Swerve making Sweve 0 net carbs. 🙂

  3. After baking that hour, my husband suggested having brownies set overnight in refrigerator and they turned out yummy. Set decorative pecans on while still warm.

  4. Kasey, these are amazzzing! Can’t go wrong with the combo of chocolate, coconut, & pecans! I love that they have that nice crust on top that resembles a brownie. Yum! I halved the recipe because I needed to be stingy with my Swerve. I baked for 25 minutes and they came out perfect. I’ve never disliked one of your recipes and they’re always so easy. Thank you for all you do!

    1. Awesome! I’m so glad you loved them. Thank you so very much for taking the time to comment. I appreciate your support and encouragement!

  5. I made these over the weekend. They taste amazing. I made a video for my Youtube channel. They fell apart but once I let them cool they firmed right up. Thank you. I will be making more of your wonderful recipes.

  6. As a special treat I made these bars as the crust for cheesecake. Of course I used your yummy cheesecake muffin recipe! Thanks for all that you do!

    1. Kasey what about making these with Monkfruit sweetener? I made them as is and they are delish BUT the Swerve tends to make my teeth tingle (I know, it’s weird, but it happens). Thoughts?

  7. I’m trying to make this recipe and I noticed that we do NOT need any almond flour or coconut flour?

  8. Do you think these would work without coconut? I am not a fan of coconut but the rest sounds great. Or do you know of something I could substitute for it?
    Thanks!

  9. Hi Kasey, this recipe is so easy, I was like an earlier comment about no flour, thought that was odd. But mine didn’t not turn out well. it looked awesome out of the oven. After it cooled a bit, I couldn’t resist sampling. There was a gooey layer on the bottom. I cut a corner to taste and noticed something gooey, so I turned it out on a plate. There was about a quarter inch of light colored goo. I have shaved it off to see if that can salvage it. I can eat the outer edge. Any idea what that could be. The only thing I did different was……I only had about 3/4 cup of powdered Swerve so I finished it off with erythritol. The corners tasted wonderful. Thank you for all you do!

    1. 4 stars
      These have a good flavor. I followed the recipe as is and they are really sweet. The only thing I didn’t really like is the gritty texture which I assume is the sweetner.? I wonder if powdered sweetener would work. And I did put them in the fridge to firm up so I could cut them.

  10. 4 stars
    I made these today. They taste good but for me, a little Swerve goes a long way. I followed the recipe and buttered the bottom of the pan. Baked for 30 min but added five more because the center wasn’t set. After I let them cool for about 10 minutes I tried to cut into squares but they did nothing but crumble into pieces. I finally gave up and just spooned the crumbles into a container.
