Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

These sugar free Keto Sesame Snaps came about purely out wanting to recreate a favourite old occasional snack that I absolutely loved.

If you know the little packets of sesame snaps I am talking about you will possibly know how tasty they really are. 

I find it really ironic that the original product is quite often found in the health food aisle in the supermarket.

I mean really what is healthy in those at all?  Anyway, I was totally inspired to see a sugar free sesame snap recipe would turn out. 

Sesame Snaps

keto sesame snap ingredients

Here is all you need to make either of our keto sesame snap versions.

Please check the two recipes cards at the bottom of the post.

I have updated the original recipe with one that is hard like toffee but softens in the mouth to a chewable keto sesame candy bar.

Tips on making our low carb sesame bars

I have made this sesame snap recipe quite a few times, and it has worked beautifully each time. 

The thing you need to be careful with just like any toffee or praline is cooking it to the right timing that it will actually set hard. 

You can tell by the colour and smell (it starts to get that “caramelly” toasted smell).  It is then that you add the baking soda.

Simply place into the freezer once you have spread out onto the baking tray.

Low Carb Sesame Bar Variations

Now I know that this keto praline recipe can easily be substituted with different nuts, seeds and flavours.

You could easily flavour it up with any extract (licorice would be off the chain).

Liquid Stevia (butterscotch) and/or spices. I have used nutmeg, and a cinnamon one today, but there is no limits! 

Substitute some of the sesame seeds for shredded coconut, sunflower seeds, pepitas, or crushed almonds. 

Coat it in chocolate and dust it in nuts. 

It also makes a great gift, bagged up with a bit of ribbon and a tag. Plus it is great for the kids lunchboxes as it is nut free keto snack too!

For the Sukrin products grab a Bakers Pack to help you stock up on what you need to make either of our keto sesame snaps. Unfortunately there is nothing remotely compliant in keto substitutes for the Sukrin fiber syrup. 

For more recipes featuring Sukrin you can check out my Sukrin Recipes Post. Or if you want more tasty low carb candy bars maybe check out our Keto White Snickers Bar or From Mars Bar.

  • Line a large 34 x 24 cm baking tray with baking paper.
  • Place both fibre syrups and butter into a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave (750W) for 8 minutes on high. Mixture should be thick and foamy.
  • Stir through remaining ingredients. Pour mixture onto baking tray. Spread to cover tray. Place into freezer.
  • Once the the toffee has hardened break into pieces and transfer to an airtight container. Store in an airtight container in the freezer. The toffee will soften at room temperature and in your mouth.



The larger the tray the thinner the toffee.
In Australia there are no known substitutes for either of the Sukrin syrups that are low in carb.
Any nuts or seeds can be substituted.
If your microwave is of a lower wattage then cook until thick and foamy.
I use salted butter.

Optional flavours

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
  • salt flakes for a salted caramel
  • extracts eg. licorice, maple, pistacho


  • Place sweetener, fiber syrup, salt, and water into a large saucepan over medium heat and cook until sweetener is dissolved.
  • Stir in sesame seeds.
  • Cook, stirring often until mix goes a delicious caramel colour, approximately 5 to 10 minutes or until temp reaches 150℃, testing with a candy thermometer. Remove from heat immediately when you see it start to go dark caramel and you can smell the change in the mix.
  • Stir through vanilla and butter. Carefully stir in baking soda. (baking soda causes the mixture to foam)
  • Pour mix onto thermomat or oiled baking tray (no paper). Spread out to desired thickness. Leave to cool and harden. 
  • Break into pieces or score gently with the tip of a knife to cut into shapes.  Store in airtight container in cool place or refrigerator.


You can leave out the sesame seeds and make this into a traditional thin toffee and coat with a little chocolate. Also works well with crushed nuts and coconut.

    Did this with xylitol – followed instructions to the letter and it hasn’t hardened!! tastes good but is gooey and chewy rather than the ‘snap’ i was hoping for – would erythritol work better?

  • Kate says:

    Did you use raw sesame seeds, or pre-toasted ones?

  • Jacque Hastert says:

    Thanks for sharing this delicious, healthy, and easy snack! I can’t wait to share this recipe with my friends who are on their keto lifestyle journey.

  • 5 stars
    I am obsessed with sesame snaps! But a sugar free and keto one? Wow! So excited to try this!!

  • Johanne Voyer says:

    I made the recipe and found it toi sweet. Can I reduce something to make it less sweet? Also, it did not become crunchy even though it reached 150 with my candy thermometer. Any advice?

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Johanne, cook it further until it is golden and when you drop a bit in cold water goes hard ball like toffee. I think cooking it longer will make it more caramel for you and reduce the sweetness.

  • Raylene Groves says:

    Hi, tried to find syrup that have listed with no luck, is there something else I could use. Thanks

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Raylene, are you an Aussie? Just use the link provided. For this recipe sorry there is no other syrups available in Aus that are low carb with the level of viscosity Sukrin has.

    I loved the first version of sesame snaps but WOW the new version is off the scales!!!
    I used to eat these all the time pre keto and just love the flavour.
    Thanks so much for making an even better version of sesame snaps that were already divine

    OMG. This is amazing. The crunch, the sweet hit, fights off every carb craving I have.
    Super easy to make…..but move quickly once it comes out of the microwave and you stir the other ingredients in. It starts to harden SOOOO quickly.

  • Lynda H says:

    Made these today and there just absolutely delicious ! Love how they are so simple to make.
    I made vanilla & salted Carmel flavour ones.
    I haven’t had a snap in many years.
