Keto Bar Cookies
The great thing about bar cookies is that you get all the delicious, fresh-baked goodness of a cookie without the extra time of scooping or rolling out individual cookies! Winning!!!
Instead, you have (in most cases) an almost cake-like batter that is baked in a square or rectangle baking dish and sliced into bars. All the magic of a cookie in way less time!
The result is a perfectly portioned slice of keto cookie heaven without any extra fuss or carbs!
Keto bar cookies are perfect to make when you have last-minute guests, need an after-school treat for the kids, or really any day of the week when you want something sweet without compromising your keto goals.
Whether you’re looking for a low-carb bar cookie that reminds you of your traditional, sugar-filled favorite or something new. These keto recipes are sure to satisfy any craving for a carb-filled treat.

The Best Sugar Substitutes for Keto Bar Cookies
When it comes to which sugar substitute is best for keto bar cookies, I have a few recommendations. If you’re a regular reader here you know we’re huge fans of Lakanto Monk Fruit.
I love that Lakanto Monk Fruit is all-natural and it gets its sweetness from antioxidants called mogrosides, instead of fructose or sucrose. And it has zero calories and zero glycemic impact.
Another fantastic option is Swerve which is another erythritol blend. It works well in most keto recipes and is a great choice if you are looking for a sugar substitute that has no bitter aftertaste and measures just like sugar.
Plus, like Lakanto, Swerve has a 0 % impact on blood sugar.
I know some of you are stevia fans, If that’s you, you can use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure in most recipes as well.
However, it’s important to note that if you are using Pyure you will want to use 1/2 the amount called for in the recipe since it’s a much sweeter option.
If a recipe calls for a brown sugar flavor profile, I am recommending you use one of the following Lakanto brown sugar substitutes, Surkin Gold or Swerve brown sugar all of which work well and are interchangeable in these recipes for keto bar cookies.
When a recipe calls for the use of a powdered sugar substitute, I defer to the only two I use regularly. My favorite brands are Lakanto’s powdered monk fruit or Swerve confectioner’s sugar substitute.
