Low Carb Sugar Free Chocolate Recipes

When I began my weight loss journey, one of the most difficult task for me was to control my sweet tooth without adding to the carb count. Since I was on Atkins Diet Program and was losing loads in a jiffy, I didn’t want to hamper my progress because of any craving. This was the time when I was looking for something chocolaty and sweet without many carbs and bingo I found one wonderful recipe for chocolate which was sugar free and very low carb. I would love to share that recipe with all those who are on weight loss spree and dying to keep that one precious melt in mouth piece of chocolate on their tongues. Ummmm!!!!

And by the way did I tell you that it took me 15 mnts to get the finished product and of course less than 15 secs to polish off the lot. Before you decide to make it at home check the nutrition data for my Low Carb Dark Chocolate. (Always read labels before deciding in favor of any food product, that is what smart dieters always do.)  🙂

Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons unsweetened Cocoa Powder. (I like Weikfield)
  • 5 Tablespoons (65 gms by weight) Coconut oil– room temperature (Patanjali virgin coconut oil works for me)
  • Stevia or any zero carb sweetener
  • Few drops Vanilla extract.
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened Coconut flakes optional

Tools:
silicone candy mold or flexible Ice cube tray

Preparation: There are two ways of making these chocolates.

1. Microwave Version :

  • In a bowl, mix the cocoa, coconut oil and stevia together until thoroughly combined. It will be a thick paste.

  • Stir in vanilla extract. Taste the mixture and adjust stevia to taste.
  • Microwave the ingredients for 5 seconds, stir and microwave for 5 seconds more. Stir well.  For best results, the consistency of the chocolate mixture should be very soft, but not runny. If needed, microwave another 5 seconds. Set aside.
  • Pinch a small amount of flaked coconut into each candy pocket of the mold.
  • Spoon the chocolate mixture over the flaked coconut.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until completely solidified.

2.  No Cook Version

  • In a bowl, mix the cocoa, coconut oil and stevia together until thoroughly combined. It will be a thick paste.
  • Stir in vanilla extract. Taste the mixture and adjust stevia to taste.
  • Stir well.  For best results, the consistency of the chocolate mixture should be very soft, but not runny. If needed, add a bit more cocoa. Set aside.
  • Pinch a small amount of flaked coconut into each candy pocket of the mold.
  • Spoon the chocolate mixture over the flaked coconut/ crushed nuts.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until completely solidified.
  • Pop the chocolates out of the mold and ENJOY!

Be sure to keep these chocolates refrigerated, as they are best served cold because coconut oil melts very fast.
