Snacks are very popular among most people. But if you eat low-carb because you are diabetic or would like to loose some pounds, this can be quite a challenge.

An ideal snack would normally consist of a muesli bar or granola bar. But those two are not ideal at all as they are full of sugars and carbohydrates.

Fortunately I have the solution. You will learn how to make a healthy low-carb granola bar below.


Muesli and granola bars are a very important part of the diet of the average person.

Especially since they are very easy to eat on the go.

Many people automatically think it is a healthy snack because it says muesli or granola. But the exact opposite is true.

Muesli bars and granola bars generally contain:

  • Oatmeal
  • Nuts
  • Seeds

Those are the healthy ingredients. But to make it into a bar and to add flavor, the bars most of the times contain: 

  • Sugar
  • Honey
  • Chocolate
  • Dried fruit
  • Vegetable oils

And those are the ingredients you want (and need) to avoid.

These ingredients are especially in granola bars you can buy in stores like Walmart, Target and Woolworth's.

So if you want to eat a healthy low-carb granola bar without sugar, I recommend you to make it yourself.

The low-carb granola bar recipe below contains many healthy ingredients. For example, it contains nuts, seeds and grated coconut. If you like peanut butter, you can also add a tablespoon of peanut butter.
