My initial attempt at using the brand-new Lily’s butterscotch-flavored chips was this simple recipe for butterscotch bars. Do I even have to mention how delicious the end result was?
Right now, it seems like new keto products are being developed at breakneck speed. It’s a struggle if you feel like you can’t keep up. You may be confident that your friendly neighborhood keto dessert queen shares your sentiments.
Even yet, I do believe it’s my responsibility as a blogger to try as many of these recent advancements as I can. Providing I can access them, which isn’t always simple.
If you can’t find these chips, don’t worry. To ensure that you can still savor these delectable Keto Butterscotch Oatmeal Bars, I have some cunning plans. Read the tips section very carefully!
It’s just a different term for caramel, right?
No and yes. Although they are produced differently, they are pretty similar in terms of both flavor and look.
And to make conventional caramel, white sugar is simply melted until it turns dark and caramelizes (imagine that!).
It turns out that my renowned keto caramel sauce, which mixes brown sugar substitute and butter to get that rich color and flavor, is possibly more akin to butterscotch. Whatever you want to name it, I could eat a tablespoon of it since it is so good.
BUTTERSCOTCH CHIPS THAT ARE GOOD FOR KETOS
After making their Walmart debut a few months ago, Lily’s butterscotch chips unexpectedly began to trend on social media. After a few weeks, I received a staggering number of requests for recipes to utilize them in.
I visited a few Walmart in my area in the hopes of finding these, but to no avail. Either they didn’t carry them yet or they had run out entirely.
Finally, I had to beg Lily’s to graciously send me a few bags directly, which they dutifully did. And I stated that I would prepare something delectable to offer, which is exactly what I did!
BARS WITH “OATMEAL” IN KETO BUTTERSCOTCH
I had so many recipes in mind to test out with these brand-new baking chips, but oatmeal-like food was at the top of my list.
These high-carb butterscotch oatmeal cookies, which a dear friend of mine makes, are fantastic.
Keto Butterscotch Bars
1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips without sugar
- sea salt flakes for sprinkling (optional)
- Lily's butterscotch chips, one-third cup
- Vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon (can sub caramel or butterscotch flavor)
- One big egg
- Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
- one tablespoon of baking powder
- 1/4 cup Swerve Sweetener powder
- Swerve Brown, half a cup
- 1/4 cup of almond flour
- Sliced almonds, 1/4 cup
- Set a metal 8-by-8-inch baking pan aside and line it with parchment paper. Set the oven to 325°F.
- Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat until it turns a deep golden colour. Keep an eye on it and stir it just a tiny bit if it foams and you can't see the colour to prevent over-browning. Set apart for cooling.
- Almond slices and coconut flake should be combined in a food processor. When the mixture resembles oat flakes, give it a few pulses. Place in a large bowl.
- Browned butter, egg, and vanilla extract are added after the almond flour, sweeteners, baking powder, and salt have been incorporated. Stir thoroughly to mix. With the exception of about 1 tablespoon for the top, stir in the majority of the butterscotch chips.
- In the prepared baking pan, evenly and firmly press the ingredients. Incorporate the leftover butterscotch and chocolate chips into the bars' tops.
- Bake FIFTEEN to TWENTY minutes. Remove and let cool in the pan, and cut into bars.
