Caramel is one of my favorite indulgences, and since keto caramel really isn't great for you like some dark chocolate desserts can be, I don't indulge as often as I'd like. When I saw this recipe for caramel crunch bars I was seriously tempted to make it, especially since some of the ingredients could be swapped for keto ones. When it comes to yummy treats, I often just go for the sweet over the keto and just cut the portion size anyway.
This recipe calls for rice cereal for the crunch element, which isn't my favorite; I'm more of a cookie crunch kind of person, which is why I love those Little Debbie caramel bars that are like a thicker, gooier version of the Twix bar. So if I made this, I might also swap in some kind of cookie element for the cereal. That said, this version is dairy-free, so that might make it more difficult to adhere to the bar's dairy-free status.
