Keto Coconut Lime Bars Recipe
OH the joys of moving.
It's so much fun to have to take your many years worth of STUFF and decide what you want to keep and what to let go of. Totally NOT fun in the least because we WANT to keep it all.
Our 7 years young house that we built on land we owned is on the market. Not because we don't absolutely love the house either.It's all about the location.
We don't have the acres of land my husband has always dreamed of and I don't have the chickens I'd love to have for the many dozens of eggs I go through on a weekly basis.
Speaking of eggs, this recipe just need a few ingredients and you've got yourself a fabulous, "take me away to a tropical island" kind of dessert!
Keto-Friendly Lime Dessert
Location is everything. We wish we could pick up this house we love and move it to a different place.
We haven't yet found that place, but most likely we are not moving out of the state of Rhode Island. It's my hometown, born and raised here. My hubby has no family left other than his sister who lives with us. It's just my side of the family and my side lives in RI. I'm not ready to leave them or let my kids be without grandparents close by to see often.
So we're packing things up to declutter the house and hope and pray it sells so we can find a piece of property with some good amount of land.
A little piece of paradise, a little bit of heaven on earth.
How to Make Sugar Free Keto Lime Bars
You can change these keto lime bars into keto lemon bars by simply swapping the fresh limes and using lemon juice and zest instead.
sesame flour or almond
Swerve confectioners sweetener
coconut oil room temperature or butter
Lime Custard Layer
Lime juice or lemon juice
Lime zest or lemon zest
Unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line an 8 by 8 baking dish with parchment paper.
Whisk the coconut flour, sesame flour, ¼ cup Swerve together and salt.
Cut the coconut oil into the dry ingredients with two butter knifes or use food processor and pulse until combined.
Press crust mixture onto the parchment paper and spread as evenly as you can with your hand.
Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven.
While the crust is cooking, use a hand mixer or large bowl and beat the eggs, whisk lime juice, lime zest, remaining 1 cup Swerve and coconut stevia together.
Once the crust is done, remove from oven and pour this egg mixture onto the crust.
Sprinkle unsweetened coconut flakes evenly over the top and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the center is set.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes then remove by lifting the ends of the parchment paper and place onto a cutting board.
Low Carb Sweetener Options
If you don't have coconut stevia or prefer to use another low carb sweetener, no problem. Use my Sweetener Guide and Conversion Chart to help you decide how much of another sweetener to use to replace stevia or Swerve.
Swerve is made from erythritol and unlike many other sugar alcohols it does not often cause any GI distress. Monk fruit is a great option that would be as sweet as using stevia.
How to Store Keto Coconut Lime Bars
Once cooled, and sliced into servings you can place each in a cupcake liner or use parchment paper and layer into an airtight container to place in the fridge. Best stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze for up to one month.
Making recipes like this one might bring you a little piece of the tropics in your mind. In just one bite of these sweet and tart bars you will be transported to tropical place.
It's a little like a shortbread cookie crust on the bottom with a soft top layer.
A match made in heaven.
That's all we want on a low carb diet isn't it?

I substituted equal monk fruit for swerve; too sweet and grainy. Should I have used less and maybe powdered swerve?
Yes if it was granulated monk fruit which also has erythritol that would be the reason for the grainy texture. Yes confectioners Swerve would be better.
Can I double recipe for the sugar free coconut lime bars and use a 13x9?
What would suggest as a substitute for coconut stevia?
You can use any sweetener you like. This is my conversion chart with other options; https://www.sugarfreemom.com/recipes/natural-sugar-free-low-carb-sweeteners-guide-conversion-chart/
Hi can I use honey instead of sweetner stevia in this recipe?
You could but that will increase your calories and carbs.
These were very good. Will make them again. I did use Key lime juice because I had it. Just very good (:
If like to use monk fruit, but not sure about how much to add, please advise.
If it's granular monk fruit you can use about 1/2 cup, it is much sweeter than Swerve.
Reality check? The lime coconut bars say 16 bars per batch out of an 8 x 8 pan. Is that correct?
Do you think i could use egg substitute in this? Allergy unfortunately.
I've swapped up to 3 eggs with a gelatin egg sub but have tried more than that for a bread recipe without success. But since this is a bar and not bread I think 4 gelatin or flax egg sub would work. Please let me know if you do try it.
Live in U.K and unable purchase Swerve in shops. Ordered from Amazon but so expensive 🙁
I love the bars, however as the Swerve is so expensive, it will cost a fortune to keep making!
With regards to Xylitol or Erithrithol, would the same amount be required?
This recipe look delicious, but I don't have any coconut oil, is there any other oil or butter I can replace it with? What would you recommend for this specific recipe? Thank you very much in advance!
I think cold butter will work in place of the coconut oil.
Brenda, I have known people who DID move their home to a new site...don’t know how the walls didn’t crack, but they didn’t. We are in the same process of “right sizing” after retirement and moving to another state. It’s amazythe stuff we have hung onto!! ?
These were amazing! Easy to make. I used Xylitol instead of swerve (it's what I had). Second time I made them, I replaced the lime with lemon... delicious!
I can't wait to try these. I love lime and coconut so these sound great to me!
I am a regular reader of your site and would say that your approach towards the food and health is very unique. thanks for valuable information.
These were amazing!
I have been craving key lime pie.. these are a slice of heaven with my morning coffee and keto lifestyle.
