After eating extremely clean for 25+ years, I recently fell off and indulged in just about anything I wanted – including lots of desserts! Making a shift back into a regimented eating plan, dessert has been one of the hardest things to give up.
Lucky for us, it isn’t necessary to completely give up desserts, instead, using a bit of creativity I’ve turned to homemade low sugar treats like these amazingly yummy Keto Chocolate Coconut Bars to satisfy my sweets cravings.
Chocolate and coconut are a couple of my favorite things, and paired together – well they can’t be beaten.
Keto Chocolate Coconut Bars
Satisfy your sweet tooth, mix up a batch of these yummy homemade chocolate bars.
- 1 Heaping Cup Dark Chocolate Chips over 60% Cacao
- 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Almond Butter
- 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
- 1 Tablespoons Cacao Nibs
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut Finely Shredded
- 1/4 Cup Brazil Nuts Chopped Finely
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Combine chocolate chips, coconut oil, cacao nib, cream cheese, almond butter - then melt these ingredients. I microwaved for 1 minute then pulled the bowl out, gave it a stir, and then microwaved 30 more seconds.
Blend brazil nuts with your psyllium husk, until it is a flour-like consistency.
Stir in the remaining dry ingredients. Adding the coconut, nuts, psyllium husk, hand cinnamon will create a chunky consistency.
Scoop out heaping spoonfuls of the mixture into an ice tray. I filled each space about how halfway, then tapped it a few times to settle the mixture. You can also scoop onto a cookie sheet if you don't have an extra ice cube tray handy.
Freeze the chocolate. I've had a bar as soon as 2 hours after going in the freezer, and it was solid all the way through.
