N’Oatmeal Chocolate Bacon Bars (keto, low-carb + paleo)

N’Oatmeal Chocolate Bacon Bars #keto #lowcarb #highfat #theketodietChilled ketogenic hemp bars drizzled with dark chocolate and topped with crumbled bacon bits and salt.

You guys! Here’s another keto “oatmeal” recipe for the books.

You know how much I love using Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts in place of oats in recipes. They act just like oats, no matter what you do with them. Really. What oat-based recipes do you wish you could have on the keto diet? Let’s chat about it in the comments. I can offer some suggestions on using hemp hearts in place of the oats in the recipe. Usually, it’s a 1 to 1 swap.

Like what I did with these N’Oatmeal Fudge Bars, these 3 flavors of Keto Overnight “Oats”, and this Keto Porridge.

If, before you went keto, you loved oats as much as me, you can add today’s recipe to your paleo no-oats recipe arsenal.

Today’s recipe is inspired by my love of all things chocolate and bacon. If making bars sounds like too much work, at least melt the chocolate and combine it with the bacon. You’ll thank me later ;)

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Line a 9 by 9-inch (23 by 23-cm) pan with parchment paper, enough that the pieces are draping over the sides for easily lifting.
  2. Place 1 cup (145 grams) of the hemp hearts in the bowl of your food processor along with melted cacao butter, almond flour, 2 tablespoons of the erythritol, and vanilla extract. Pulse until the dough sticks together. Add the remaining ½ cup (75 grams) and pulse just briefly to combine. Transfer the dough to the prepared pan and press evenly with your fingers. Set aside.
  3. Place chocolate, coconut oil, and remaining 3 tablespoons of erythritol in a double boiler or glass dish overtop a boiled pot of water. Heat until melted.
  4. Meanwhile, sprinkle 75% of the bacon bits over the hemp heart base.
  5. Drizzle with the melted chocolate, top with the rest of the bacon bits. Sprinkle with a pinch of flake salt.
  6. Transfer to the fridge and chill for 45 minutes. Remove from the fridge, hold the flaps of the parchment paper and lift the bars to a cutting board. Cut the bars into 12 equal pieces. Enjoy right then and there, or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
Notes
If you’re sensitive to hemp, you could use finely shredded unsweetened coconut in its place.

  1. Hello,
    Could one use cocoa butter and/or coconut oil instead of the cacao butter?

    Thanks.

    • Cocoa butter would be perfect! It’s the same as cacao butter, just a little more processed. If you used coconut oil, it wouldn’t be quite as solid at room temp.

  2. Hi Leanne!!

    Do you give personal coaching? I’m on Keto sonce many months now and just don’t burn my body fat yet… I would like to buy personal coaching with you :) TY!!

  3. I can’t get my hemp hearts to stick together in the N’oatmeal cookies from the new cookbook… I use a good food processor, but they don’t break down at all. Any tips?

    • They really won’t break down much, but the processing helps it all stick together. Perhaps try adding a touch more coconut oil/cacao butter.

    • Thanks! You could use xylitol or coconut sugar. Keep in mind, using coconut sugar will make it so the recipe is no longer low-carb, keto.

  4. These look so yummy! I’d say I miss overnight oats with nut butter <3

    I normally eat a low-carb, primal diet (~80-140g carbs/day) but my brother wants to try keto in a few weeks. I know how to coach it, but am thinking of joining him. I was wondering why you seem to choose monk fruit or erythritol over stevia as your low-carb sweetener of choice? Are they better probiotics or sugar alcohols with lower insulin response? Thanks!
