Almond Butter Freezer Bars (Sugar Free)

This recipe was created for my sugar-free friends!

I always use natural sweeteners in my recipes but lately I’ve been hearing from more of my friends that they want recipes that are low in sugar for health reasons. I too have been in need of a healthy snack I can have in the evenings when I have a sweet tooth. I usually  have a fat bomb or a cup of tea to satisfy my craving but lately I’ve been wanting something new.

Enter my almond butter freezer bars!

These bars are high in protein (from the almond butterand gelatin) and are sweetened with stevia, making them low in sugar! If you’re not watching your sugar intake and would like to make these with honey or maple syrup they go for it! I’m sure they’ll taste amazing.

    does coconut oil need to be melted when mixed in with the almond butter?

      It should be room temperature or liquid. If it’s too cold it’ll be difficult to mix.

    Coco Mom, you must have read my mind. I was on FB looking at these delish recipes that my friend posted. In my mind I said, “How come no one ever posts any no gluten recipes?” I am on a no gluten, no sugar way of living. And right under her post…I find you. Thank you, thank you.
    I will go get the ingredients tomorrow. AND TRY IT.

    I have to tell you….I am a little gun shy of stevia since the detoxinista put out her post last week on how stevia made her stop menstruating. Are you convinced of stevia’s safety? What sweetener would you suggest I replace it with in the recipe? Thank you for all the great info you supply us with!

      Hi Annette,

      I’ve read conflicting information on stevia as well. I go back and forth between using it. I like to use the powdered green stevia in most of my recipes, but it didn’t taste right in this one, so I used the liquid stevia instead. Raw honey or real maple syrup are excellent alternatives but they are high in sugar so only use a small amount if you’re watching your sugar intake.

    I don’t have collagen powder or protein powder; could I use gelatin instead?

    Hi Tiffany, Love the look of these bars, and their lack of sugar!! Hope to try them out soon. Just a thought – some might like to sub carob powder for the cocoa. If I eat any sort of chocolate at night, I have a hard time sleeping! Plus, I just love using carob.
    Thanks, Pat

    Hi 🙂

    How can i substitute the Collagen? something more simple?? please 😉

      You can use your favorite protein powder. I use collagen because it’s really good for you and it’s just protein. No sugar or carbs. 🙂

    Can I use liquid vanilla instead of the powdered?

    Reply
    • The Coconut Mama March 14, 2016, 9:09 am

      Hi Linda, yes! The powdered vanilla is stronger so I would double the liquid.
