Are there carbs in coffee?
Yes, there are carbs in coffee but it depends on what type of coffee you are drinking and what else has been added. Plain regular unflavored instant coffee will have almost zero carbs.
Coffee is made from coffee beans, and beans have carbs, fat, and protein. How much of these macronutrients end up in your coffee will depend on how your coffee beans have been processed.
If your cup of coffee has been prepared from beans, the carb count will vary depending on whether it has been made using a plunger, espresso machine, dripped, or pressed.
These carbs in coffee charts show you exactly how many carbs are in each variety of coffee, which to enjoy and which to avoid.

Are regular coffee bars keto?
Regular energy bars at stores would have misleading labels and make you think you’re about to buy something that will help you get through your day. But when you read all the ingredients, you’ll find that they're packed with added sugar as well as high carb oats and high starch grains, and not to mention the unhealthy oils.
Your blood sugars will be raised and you'll get that afternoon slump about an hour later. That's no fin for anyone.
To help make your healthy lunchboxes fast, always have some sugar-free baking on hand in your fridge or pantry. It makes eating healthy convenient.
Because of the high egg content and natural unpreserved ingredients, these low carb keto bars cannot be stored for long. But as long as you keep food safety in mind, they should last for up to 3 days fresh and up to 3 months frozen.
How to store for the next few days: Store in an airtight container on the kitchen bench for up to 3 days in cooler climates. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days when the temperature in the kitchen is warm or moderate.
How to store in the freezer: The sugar free coffee walnut bars can be frozen in an airtight container for up to one month. Or why not make them as sugar free coffee cupcakes? Easy and portable.
Are they gluten-free?
Coffee and walnut bars are naturally gluten-free because they are made with coconut flour. If you have never used coconut flour before, you need to read my Ultimate guide to Low-Carb Flours.
Low-carb flours behave quite differently to traditional wheat flour. There is no gluten for elasticity and no sugar for volume, so there are a few simple baking rules you'll need to learn.
I have a number of recipes now that I make with coconut flour. Take a look at my Coconut Flour Recipe Finder. All the recipes in the coconut flour index, are either made with coconut flour or have a conversion so you may use coconut flour as an alternative in the recipe.
