Break Me Off a Piece of That Homemade Candy Bar

Crispy, crunchy, and chocolatey, iconic Kit Kat wafer bars have been a favorite with kids and adults for nearly 100 years. This Paleo-friendly, refined sugar-free version of the classic candy adds in the more complex flavors of hazelnut and coconut.

Active Time:

Homemade Kit Kat Ingredients

3/4 cups homemade chocolate-hazelnut spread 
1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon coconut milk
1 tablespoon raw honey
2 cups Paleo cereal flakes

Topping Ingredients

Homemade Paleo Kit Kat Bars

Recipe Instructions

Line an 8 x 8-inch brownie pan with parchment paper.

Place chocolate-hazelnut spread, butter, coconut oil, coconut milk, honey, and cereal flakes in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix so that all the ingredients have combined thoroughly and the cereal flakes have broken up into smaller pieces. Press mixture evenly into lined pan.

Whisk together the ingredients for the topping in a medium-sized bowl. Pour mixture over chocolate-hazelnut cereal mixture in the pan. Place in freezer or fridge for several hours to firm up.

When ready to serve, sprinkle with Maldon salt and cut into 4 x 1/2-inch size pieces. Store in fridge.

Ask a Nutritionist: Healthy Late-Night Snack Ideas

    I loved Kit Kats before I started paleo/primal eating - I'm going to give these a tryout in the weekend. As I live in NZ I can't get those cereal flakes, but I have my own paleo nograinola recipe and will use that. Thank you so much!

  • Kris Wong

    Each one of these bars has approx. 4.5 grams of sugar. Keep that in mind if you have more than 1 or 2.

  • Stef B

    but kit kats don't taste anything like coconut or hazelnut :(

  • Meagan Burris

    Can someone tell me the nutrition info for these? Thank you!
