Keto breakfast bars are so good, the whole family will love them! Topped with a cream cheese drizzle, these bars are great to have on hand for a quick breakfast.

Oh cinnamony-sweet bars, with your ADDICTING, almondy, CHEWY goodness.

YOU are the sole reason that I can get out of bed in the mornings and take on MY DAY.

Internet friends. If you’re looking for a healthy breakfast recipe that is:

It’s got all the swirls of spicy-sweet cinnamon and sugary goodness, WITH cream cheesy-flavor, that you expect to experience in your life when you take the first bite into a fresh-from-the-oven cinnamon roll, but in a wholesome, WAY EASIER, HELLO breakfast kinda form.

They’re pretty much the perfect way to feel like you started the day by eating healthy, without having to be sad about it.

We could also name this keto breakfast bars recipe “how to be awesome: breakfast edition” because they’re the kind of thing that both you, your husband and the little humans that run around your house will ALL like to eat, AND you can make a bunch in advance and keep them in the freezer for days when said little humans are running around even CRAZIER than usual.

Not that I really know anything about this, on account of not being a Mom. BUT I WATCH TV.

It looks scary.

If you thought that making gluten free cinnamon roll overnight oats or  funfetti protein overnight oats was the easiest-dessert-for-breakfast-kinda recipe then this keto breakfast bars recipe is going to blow your MIND.

It really just comes down to beating cream cheese with monkfruit and throwing an assortment of other ingredients (almond flour! Egg! Cinnamon! (duh) into a bowl, stirring it together, patting it into a pan (damp hands are the ticket!) and chucking it in the oven to return to your Netflix binge.

Priorities.

Rly Rly though. That easy.  I should know because I made these eleventy billion times to get the cinnamon spice JUUUUST NICE.

Or just right. But “just nice” sounded VRY fancy-rhyming-person so I wanted to say it.

I actually was making an oatmeal breakfast bars recipe to send along for Mr. FFF to eat during the week while he is at school and I had this little “ah-ha” moment of “what would happen if I used almond flour instead of oatmeal.”

Aaaand then I proceeded to change every other ingredient in this keto breakfast bar recipe, and pray that my probably-would-have-for-sure-worked-if-I-only-changed-one-ingredient-recipe-experiment that once was would still work although it didn’t look ONE HAIR like it’s original recipe cousin.

Sitting in front of the oven. Eyeballs peering into the flame. HOPING, PRAYING, WISHING, DREAMING.

Slight exaggeration. But you know where I’m coming from.

VRYYYYYY pleased to report back that this keto breakfast bars recipe came out of the oven, shiny, new and TOTALLY DELICIOUS.

And then, like you should do to all good things in life to make them MORE GOOD, we added a cream cheese drizzle.

So good you’re gonna wanna hide them in the back of your refrigerator in a non-clear Tupperware container.

Don’t look innocent. We’ve all been there.

Keto Breakfast Bars Recipe

    12 Servings

Ingredients

For the Bars:
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Monkfruit Sweetener
  • 1 large Egg, at room temperature
  • 1 Egg Yolk, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Flour, 150 g
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Flour, 23 g
  • 1/2 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
For the Drizzle:
  • 3 tablespoons Cream Cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Monkfruit Sweetener
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Milk of Choice

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line the bottom of an 8-inch pan with parchment paper, rubbing the sides generously with oil or nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and monkfruit until fluffy and combined, scraping the sides as needed.
  3. Add in the egg, yolk and vanilla and beat until combined.
  4. Add all the remaining ingredients (except for the drizzle) and stir until well mixed.
  5. Transfer to the prepared pan and press out evenly (using VERY lightly damp hands will help a lot here.)
  6. Bake until the edges are golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes. Let cool COMPLETELY in the pan.
  7. Once cool, whisk the softened cream cheese and monkfruit together. Then, add the milk of choice and whisk until thick.
  8. Transfer to a small piping bag (or a Ziploc with the tip cut off) and pipe a thin drizzle onto each bar.
  9. DEVOUR!

 

Notes

  • As with all gluten free baking, please weigh your flour to ensure accurate results.
  • Bars are best stored in the freezer and left at room temperature to thaw, or else they dry out.
