Make portable and snackable keto pumpkin granola bars!
The perfect seasonal mid-day snack recipe is here!
The search is over for the best homemade keto granola bar recipe, and this one ties in seasonal pumpkin flavors! Keto pumpkin chocolate chip granola bars are perfect to make a whole batch over the weekend to have ready for quick grab-and-go snacks during the week.
The flavor combination of pumpkin seeds, sliced almonds, chopped pecans, flaxseeds, flaxseed meal, shredded coconut, and pumpkin is incredible. Not to mention all the added health benefits from the nuts and seeds! Throw in the keto chocolate chips (because why not 😉) and these granola-style bars are complete.
This recipe took some serious creative effort on my part. I searched everywhere for ideas and inspiration on how to come up with a keto pumpkin chocolate chip bar. A lot of recipes use eggs, and I didn’t want overly eggy granola bars and the texture isn’t ideal. This is why I chose to only use egg whites, which turned out great!
Most granola bars are overly sweet to me as well. I wanted to come up with a true granola bar-style recipe, but find a way to make it keto and still be delicious.
The hard part about granola bars is getting them to stick together. Traditional granola bars use syrups, honey, or lots of sugar to hold everything together. So for this recipe, the “glue” is melted coconut oil, pumpkin puree, egg whites, and keto confectioners sweetener.

Tips for making the best keto pumpkin chocolate chip granola bars:
- Make sure you line the baking dish with parchment paper or grease well with butter or coconut oil to prevent the granola bars from sticking.
- Let the bars cool all the way before slicing them, otherwise, they might crumble or fall apart.
- Firmly press the bars into the pan before baking, this will help them keep their form.
- Store these granola bars in the fridge. They’ll keep for a week in the fridge or you can freeze them for up to three months.
