Keto No Bake N’oatmeal Fudge Bars (low-carb, grain-free, no sugar, paleo, vegan and nut-free)

Keto No Bake N’oatmeal Fudge Bars #keto #lowcarb #nosugar #sugarfree #paleo #vegan #grainfree #nutfreeBeautifully layered chocolatey keto n’oatmeal bars with a nutty flavor, no nuts, grains or sugar. Completely keto with only 4 grams of net carbs.

Fat bomb. Every time I read this work, I think of the song sex bomb (enjoy that slice o’ Tom Jones). Anyone else with me?

For those of you who don’t know what a keto fat bomb is, it’s exactly as the title denotes = lots of fat, in one little keto package. Usually in the form of keto nut butter with some oil and flavoring.

Sadly, there are only so many keto fat bombs a keto girl can handle before she’s bombed out. If you’re not there yet, check out these dairy-free keto fat bomb recipes.

But okay, so you’re sick of keto fat bombs. What if we looked at the concept of the “fat bomb” in a different light? Like, in a keto fudge bar, oatmeal-free, keto dessert kind of way? This keto recipe is all that, and more. You can share your keto fat bombs with the world without anyone knowing it’s an actual keto fat bomb, and they will all benefit from the amazingly nourishing fats in each delectable keto bar!

I used Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts as the major ingredient in this keto recipe because the hemp hearts so perfectly replace oats. Seriously, just about every oat-based recipe can be made paleo (and grain-free!) by replacing the oats with Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts. I get the big bags of the stuff at Costco.

What I love about hemp hearts is that they’re a “neutral” carb with an equal amount of total carbohydrates to fiber. And they’re loaded with omegas, plant-based proteins, the list goes on, and on. So much better than oats for your cooking!

N'oatmeal Crust and Topping
Dairy-free Fudge
  1. Line a 9x9 baking sheet with parchment paper draping over all sides for easy lifting.
  2. Melt coconut oil and xylitol in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until xylitol granules have dissolved, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts, shredded coconut, coconut flour and vanilla extract. Remove from the heat and combine with a spoon until the ingredients are well blended. Press half of mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Reserve the other half for topping, set aside.
  4. Transfer the base to the refrigerator while you continue with the fudge layer.
  5. Meanwhile, melt chocolate and coconut milk in a small heavy saucepan over low heat, frequently stirring until smooth. Stir in the stevia and set aside.
  6. Take the base out of the fridge. Spoon the chocolate mixture over the crust in the pan, and spread evenly with a knife or the back of a spoon. If the bottom layer hasn’t totally set, a couple of hemp hearts will lift up and mix in with the chocolate, so take your time.
  7. Crumble the remaining hemp mixture over the chocolate layer, pressing in gently. Cover, and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Cut into 16 bars and enjoy!
  8. Store in the fridge for best results, but does great out on display for hours!

  1. Can these be kept in the freezer? Planning on making these but wanted to try storing some in the freezer for another time.

    • Great question, Joanna! They freeze really well — I recommend putting half of the batch in the freezer and keeping the other half in the fridge for easy access. If you’re in a pinch an need to defrost the ones in the freezer, just let them sit out on the counter for a few minutes before enjoying :)

  2. I’d like to know if anyone tried this recipe without any sweeteners of any kind?

  3. Love your keto overnight oats and have just made this recipe…yummy.

  4. Thank you for this recipe its really easy and tast awesome….definitely making more of this…

    • I’m so glad you liked it! It’s definitely a delicious recipe!

  5. So I want to make this and I have swerve not xylitol. Is that ok? Is there something I should do different? Why do you prefer xylitol over swerve/do you prefer? I use swerve for anything granulated usually, and Stevia only in liquid form (good thin this recipe calls for liquid) as powdered has an aftertaste to me and is hard to find without some sort of additive.
    Also, I haven’t used it but what is your take on monk fruit?

    • Yep, Swerve should work just as well. I like Swerve and xylitol pretty much the same :) I love monk fruit– especially LAKANTO, which is a monk fruit and erythritol blend.

  6. Is there any way to make these without artificial sweeteners? Will they still hold together if I just leave the xylitol out all together?

    • The coconut oil should hold everything together. If you give it a try, let us know how it goes!

  7. UH. 3rd time making these this month. Honestly the best.
    I actually enjoy heating these up a bit before I indulge, it really does something for the flavor.

    It’s also one of the simplest recipes to make but you would never guess it.

    *I didn’t have cacao butter this week but I remember previously picking at the crust because it was so delicious. So, I just went for it and whipped them up without the fudge filling and they are still spectacular.

    Thank you thank you.

    • Wow, I’m thrilled you love them so much! Thanks for sharing, Paige. And I totally agree– the crust is pretty tasty on its own ;)

  8. These are absolutely amazing! They keep my macros on track and my sweet tooth at bay. My daughter takes them in her grain free lunch for school and loves them as well. Thank you!

  9. Thanks for the recipe! I’m trying to get back on keto (fell off the wagon a couple months ago) but I discovered that dairy stalls my weight loss so that greatly limits my recipe options. I need a dairy-free grab & go breakfast option so I’m hoping these will fit the bill… I’m so tired of egg muffins!
