How Are These No Bake Carrot Cake Bars Considered Keto?

To make this recipe keto and low sugar, I used Powdered Swerve in the place of confectioners sugar, monk fruit Syrup in place of maple syrup and granulated monk fruit in place of real sugar. All of these subsitutions makes this recipe not only tasty, but it cuts the calories, sugar and carb count drastically.

Must Have Ingredeints

  • Almond Butter is my secret ingredient: in this recipe, the almond butter helps hold all the ingredients together. It also gives the bars a nice rich and creamy texure.
  • Kite Hill Dairy Free Cream Cheese won’t dissapoint: This is my all time favorite dairy free cream cheese. It tastes so close to real cream cheese and makes is awesome to use when making my cream cheese frosting.
  • Powdered Swerve or Powdered Monk Fruit: Swerve powdered sweetener has yet to let me down. The consistency and texture of it is so close to real powdered sugar. This is the key ingredient in my dairy free cream cheese frosting.
  • Monk Fruit Syrup: This is my favorite sugar free syrup to use in my baking. In this recipe, this helps give the base sweetness and also helps home the ingredients together.

How To Store These Bars

FRIDGE: Store bars in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.

FREEZER: These bars are also freezer friendly and can be stored in an air tight container in the freezer for up to 3 months! My favorite way to eat them is straight from the freezer. Seriously so darn GOOD!

    My husband is allergic to almonds so I can’t use almond flour. Would I be able to substitute arrowroot flour?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Hi Amanda,

      Yes arrowroot flour would be a nice substitute for almond flour. Thanks for the question.

  2. Mia says:

    This looks amazing! Can it be made with eggs to turn them into muffins?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I haven’t tried it so can’t really give you a for sure answer. You are more than welcome to try but I always recommend following my recipe as written to get the best results.

✨We all need quick meals and I’m obsessed with these  English Muffin Tuna Melts. They can be on the dinner table in under 15 minutes and can be tailored to be gluten and dairy free. 

 ✨ENGLISH MUFFIN TUNA MELTS✨
*3 English muffins split in half (gluten-free or regular)
*Butter (to toast muffins) optional
*6 slices Colby Jack cheese or cheese of choice (you can also use dairy-free cheese)
*6 slices red onion, thinly sliced (Optional, but adds nice crunch and flavor)
*Three 5-ounce cans of white meat tuna packed in water, drained
*2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
*2 tbsp dill relish or 2 large pickle spears, chopped
*1/3 cup homemade or mayo of choice
*1 tablespoon pickle juice
*1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
*Parsley for garnish

✨Instructions✨
1. MIX THE TUNA SALAD: In a medium mixing bowl, add the canned tuna and break up the tuna with a fork. Transfer the chopped onions, relish, pickle juice, salt/pepper, and mayo. Mix together until combined. 
2. TOAST MUFFINS: You can choose to toast the English muffins with butter under the broiler for 2-3 minutes. However, if you don’t want to toast before adding the tuna, that’s okay. It still turns out great without toasting muffins first. 
3. BUILD THE MELTS: Divide the tuna mixture evenly among each of the toasted English muffins. Add a thin slice red onion along with a thin slice of Colby Jack cheese over the top.  Return to the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes in a 375F oven or until cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
