Whether you call them coconut scotchies or cookie bars, you will love these sugar free, gluten free treats! They are sweet and make a perfect dessert after your low carb meal…and a few chocolate chips just makes the flavor all the better!!



Coconut Scotchies Are Cookie Bars

I love cookie bars…whether they are chocolate chip, peanut butter, chocolate mint, etc. 

With my family of five always needing something sweet after our supper meal, I try to have something on hand most of the time. 

We like a variety of desserts and sweets, but I can say for sure that one of our all time favorites is cookies and cookie bars! 

I could make a new treat every night, but my family always seems to appreciate just plain ‘ol chocolate chip cookies any day of the week!!

What Does a Coconut Scotchie Taste Like?

I got inspired to try my hand at a healthy cookie bar, and I was pretty amazed with how these bars turned out! 

It took me a few times of changing ingredients  around, but I finally have a dessert that passed the family taste test! 

These cookie bars have a sweet butterscotch flavor with a hint of coconut.

Chocolate Chips and Brown Sugar

The chocolate chips are optional, but seriously, who wouldn’t want chocolate chips in every bite of a cookie bar? 

It was a must for me to add them!  I used Lily’s chocolate chips because they are sweetened with stevia, but you could chop up a 85% dark chocolate bar and use that as well.  

You may also notice one of the ingredients is brown sugar.  Here is a link to Gwen’s Nest “brown sugar”.  

It’s awesome and tastes just like the real stuff.  Thanks Gwen!!

If you’d rather not make homemade low carb brown sugar, you can definitely use your favorite store bought version.

A favorite brown sugar for low carb baking is Lakanto Monkfruit golden sweetener!
