Strawberry Poptart Cookie Bars
(Keto - Low Carb - Sugar Free - Macro Friendly
Do you ever crave breakfast pastries on the weekend? Or maybe you remember eating the classic “Pop-tart” when you were younger and the little kid in you wants to enjoy that nostalgic, sweet flavor from your childhood?
Of course, the downside to eating these treats is the excessive amounts of sugar, empty calories, artificial chemicals, and unhealthy ingredients…ugghh.
What if we told you that you could enjoy the taste of a poptart without the guilt or the weird processed ingredients?
DeeDee (@ketowithdeedee) created this low-carb Strawberry Poptart Cookie Bar recipe that also has a clean protein boost (MariGold Creamy Vanilla Whey Isolate), healthy fat, is sugar-free, keto & macro-friendly.
Oh, and completely delicious!
“These turned out sooo good and definitely give some strawberry poptart vibes! Even the kids & my regular sugar eaters loved them.”
