This Chocolate Chip Keto Granola Bar recipe is just the tops. And with only 4g net carbs, this can be your go-to low carb breakfast bar.
Well, you learn something new everyday.
Today I learned how to make a really good Keto Granola Bar recipe and I also learned about a vintage device called a Scopitone.
Like so many things, I learned about Scopitones from the Internet.
A friend posted this old video of Raquel Welch doing some sort of space dance. (Below) It’s both bizarre and kind of wonderful.
The video is actually a 16mm Technicolor film that used to play on a special kind of jukebox called a Scopitone.
These 1960’s jukeboxes played music that was synched a film projection screen. (Below) They were music videos before there were music videos. From what I can tell, they were less about music and more about bikini clad go-go girls. Hence the wack-a-doo space girl costume Raquel Welch is wearing. I’ll give her this though- she completely committed to the space dance. She left it all on the field.
But back to the Keto Granola Bar recipe I mentioned earlier.
I learned how to make them from a great Keto Granola Bar recipe that I found on Keto Daily. The version of the recipe that I made today is full of toasted almond, pecans, coconut flakes and sesame seeds.
And, of course, chocolate.
Any granola bar worth its salt has a little something sweet thrown in. And since dried fruit is out, chocolate it is. I used Lilly’s Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips for this recipe and sweetened the bars with Swerve Brown. You can swap in the chips and sweetener of your choice though. Just make sure that they are sugar-free so you can keep the carb count at 4g net carbs.
You want to be able to fit into your space bikini and go-go boots, after all.Print
