An easy recipe for homemade keto kit kat bars loaded with low carb crispy cereal, seeds and nuts! Made with just 5 ingredients and ready in 5 minutes, this healthy candy recipe is a game changer!
Keto Kit Kat Recipe
My homemade kit kat crunch bar recipe is what I like to call ‘the showstopper.’
Not to toot my own horn, but for a homemade healthier alternative to the traditional kit kat bar, it is pretty epic.
Made with just 5 ingredients and taking less than 5 minutes to prepare, it’s the refined sugar free and no bake dessert recipe which impresses everyone. Not to mention it actually tastes like a kit kat bar!
Since sharing that recipe, I’ve had request after request to make a keto kit kat candy bar recipe. While I’ve shared a similar keto crunch bar, I had to try it this way.
Like my original homemade kit kat recipe, my keto version also needs just 5 ingredients and again, only takes 5 minutes. Not only is it super quick and easy to whip up, it’s completely foolproof- You simply melt your ingredients together and pour it over your keto crunchy cereal, which gives it the kit kat texture!
Taste-wise, these keto kit kat bars taste like the real deal. The combination of chocolate, almond butter, and monk fruit maple syrup provides ample sweetness.
The texture of these kit kat bars is just as good. Crispy, crunchy but also easy enough to bite into- It really is insanely delicious.
Not only are these homemade healthy kit kat bars keto-friendly and sugar free, but they are also completely vegan and paleo, thanks to the lack of grains and dairy!
Keto Friendly Cereal Options
Initially, I planned on using my homemade keto puppy chow (aka muddy buddies) recipe. However, I found a store bought keto and vegan granola cereal, which was a much quicker and easier alternative.
Store bought options can be quite difficult to find, so you can replace the cereal with a mix of large flaked unsweetened coconut, mixed nuts, and mixed seeds. Granted, this will lose some of the ‘kit kat’ factors, but it will still have a fantastic texture.
The Best Keto Sweeteners
There are several keto approved sweetener options for this recipe.
The best sweetener is monk fruit sweetened maple syrup. Using this will yield the absolute best texture, and you’ll find the bars so much easier to cut up.
You could technically use a granulated keto sweetener (like monk fruit or swerve) but you’ll find the bars more tough than creamy, and similar to chocolate bark.
Alternatively, you can simply omit the sweetener, as the chocolate chips are already pre-sweetened.
Keto Chocolate Chips
Lily’s chocolate chips are stevia sweetened and keto approved chocolate chip brand, which melts beautifully and leaves no bitter aftertaste.
You can also use unsweetened baker’s chocolate, but be sure to add several drops of liquid stevia to it, to provide sweetness.
Ketogenic diet follower or not, these healthy keto kit kat bars don’t discriminate- Everyone will love them and I promise they are so quick and easy, you’ll never buy store bought again!

Where do you find sugar free choc chips in Australia?
I use “Well Naturally, No Sugar Chocolate”. You can buy the chocolate in 45g and 90g, available at Woolworths in the Health Food section. Coles also have it. Well Naturally use to have the chocolate chips but discontinued making the chips, due to poor sales. Hopefully they’ll start producing the chips again, so many people are going refined sugar free.
I chop the chocolate by hand or use a blender. Works perfectly.
how is this cereal considered Keto if it has maple syrup in it??
The cereal used is keto approved.
How many bars does the recipe make?
Hi Christine! It makes 20 bars 🙂
This is not Paleo. Granola is not paleo.
This is definitely paleo, the granola brand used is certified paleo. Enjoy.
What’s the name of cereal you use?
Hi there, it is linked in the recipe card.
What can i use instead of coconut oil? I try to avoid due to saturated fat.
I am allergic to coconut. Could I use EVOO?
Hi there, I’ve never tried an alternative- Your best trial would be butter/dairy free butter.
Love these bars! I cut them in half ( less fat for me that way) & enjoy with cup of coffee! Freezing for treats during super bowl! 🤤☕️
What do they taste like?
Like Kit Kat Crunch bars.
The picture of the bars doesn’t seem to have big nuts in them – did you chop the nuts/seeds/granola?
Hi Michelle! Sure are, I used crushed nuts and seeds, to make it easier to cut into bars.
Hi! Quick question, why are there 7, and not 5, ingredients on the recipe list?
Hi because the cereal/nuts/seeds are combined- you can use all 3 or just 1 of them, as I used myself. Enjoy.
Hi There, I made these yesterday. I used grain free granola I made earlier using Keto approved ingredients. I had nuts on hand and all the other ingredients needed. I had my first small bar with w/ my coffee. They are delicious. I am storing the rest in the freezer and grabbing one for when I’m craving something sweet! Thank you.
You are so welcome, Arin!
Can you use regular butter instead of almond butter?
I haven’t tried it myself, but feel free to experiment and see- I’d love to hear how it turns out!
hi there. I just made these and they’re wonderful. However, I made them with enjoy life chocolate chips, as they are the ones you’ve linked in your recipe. Enjoy life are not Keto though. You might want to adjust your hyperlink!
Thanks for that, sometimes the recipe card automates it. I try to also include links in the post itself with the specific ones. Thanks for trying it out, Rebecca!
My favorite keto dessert ever. I use keto nut granola blueberry cinnamon from Costco for the granola. It’s by cereals in mine. Talk about easy. Thanks so much for a little bit of heaven.
To make it more like a kit Kat wouldn’t you pour a layer of the chocolate mixture without the granola/nuts included, then put a layer of the granola/nut mixture on top of the chocolate and continue layering ending with the chocolate on top like kit Kats? Am I overthinking it?
