Personally I think Keto Chow is pretty awesome and works great for most situations. The major drawback I see is that it requires refrigeration and also a sealed container to transport it if you’re doing something like running around a conference or Disneyland – in which case you need to use an insulated container (which honestly works extremely well). But what do you do if you want to save space, reduce weight and (from what I can tell so far) not have to keep it refrigerated for the day?
Make some Keto Chow Bars/Brownies/Muffins.
The basics are: you’re adding eggs and baking soda to make it more substantial; and for the calories you’re using butter and peanut butter since both store well (and taste yummy). For my test I made 6 meals worth (2 days) so the pictures are double the recipe shown here (1 stick of butter instead of a half stick). I also used Rich Chocolate though you can easily use any of the other flavors – next time I’m doing it with snickerdoodle!
The one caveat with the bars: they are pretty dry – you’re going to want something to drink while you’re eating but water is easy to store, transport and locate on the fly.

Keto Chow Bars/Brownies (REVISED)
- 150 grams Keto Chow powder 3 meals worth
- 64 grams Adams Natural Peanut Butter 2 "servings" - it's far easier to weigh
- 56.5 grams salted butter half stick
- 2 large Eggs
- 10 grams sugar alternative such as swerve, powdered
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
- Add the liquid ingredients to a mixing bowl
- Add dry ingredients and start mixing. I recommend using a mixer.
- Spoon into a pan and smooth it out. For best results use a cupcake pan.
- I baked it at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes
- For maximum freshness, put each "meal" worth into a bag and refrigerate the bag. My guess is that it will keep just like the brownies you are familiar with. Out of the fridge they should be good for 1-3 days.
