You'll Love Sugar Free Raspberry Coconut Squares

"These raspberry coconut squares are the sugar-free, gluten free, low carb, keto version of my Grandmother's recipe that she used to make for us as kids. I think they come pretty darn close to her recipe and I'm super excited to share them with you... " -Kori

The BEST cookie bars. My Grandmother used to make coconut linzer bars when we were growing up. Her bars were amazing, and I think I've managed to recreate her recipe pretty close. I tested them on my family, and no one knew they were sugar free. 🙂

Easy To Make. As far as cookie bars go, I think these are pretty easy to make. YOu simply mix the crust, press it in the bottom, and bake. Once it comes out, you spread the raspberry filling, then top with the coconut filling and bake. Voila! Delicious raspberry coconut squares.

Healthy. One of the hardest things about following any kind of healthy eating plan - at some point, you will get a sugar craving. These will absolutely satisfy your sweet tooth - guilt-free. These are sugar-free, low-carb, keto, and gluten-free. Just don't eat too many!

Coconut Raspberry Bar Ingredients

  • Butter
  • Cream Cheese
  • Almond Flour
  • Coconut Flour
  • Sugar Substitute: used in the filling and crust, you'll need a sugar substitute with a 1:1 sugar ratio.
  • Egg: used in the filling and crust.
  • Sugar-Free Raspberry Preserves: for test purposes, I used Smucker's Sugar-Free Red Raspberry Preserves. You can also use cherry preserves, cranberry, strawberry, and apricot too! Try not to pick one that is too sweet. It is best to choose one that will have a little tartness to balance the sweetness of the crust and coconut topping.
  • Almond Extract
  • Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

Raspberry Coconut Squares Top Tips

  • Soften cream cheese in the microwave for a few seconds until you can easily stir it with a spoon.
  • Add the fresh toppings on last as it gives them a chance to bake a little.

Sugar Free Keto Coconut Squares FAQ's

How long will coconut squares keep?

The coconut bars taste best if eaten within 3 to 4 days after baking. This is optional, but I keep them in the refrigerator which seems to preserve the freshness longer.

Can I freeze coconut bars?

Definitely. Coconut bars can be frozen. I like to cut them into bars first, then layer them in an airtight freezer-proof container. I use parchment paper to separate each layer of bars. The bars can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Can I substitute ingredients?

Some ingredients can be substituted in the coconut bars, yes. You can easily use a different sugar free berry preserve instead of raspberry. Raspberry is my favorite because of the tartness it provides against the sweetness of the bars.
You can also substitute any of your favorite sugar free and keto-friendly sweeteners as long as it has a 1:1 sugar ratio.
