Ingredients

  • ¼ cup 60 ml sugar-free dark chocolate, stevia-sweetened chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp MCT oil
  • coarse salt or sea salt
  • 1½ oz. 40 g raw macadamia nuts halves

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. In a small microwave-safe dish, microwave the chocolate chips for 50 seconds or until melted. Stir until smooth, then add the MCT oil and a pinch of coarse salt. Mix until blended.
  2. Place 3 macadamia nut halves in each of 8 wells of a truffle mold or mini muffin pan or in each of 8 mini baking cups. Spoon some of the chocolate mixture into each well or baking cup, completely covering the nuts. Sprinkle additional salt over the chocolate.
  3. Transfer the mold or baking cups to the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes, until the chocolate is solid.
  4. Store extras in a zip-top plastic bag in the freezer for up to 6 months.

 

Tip!

Suzanne uses Lily’s baking chips. These chocolate chips are dairy-free but are manufactured using equipment that may come into contact with dairy, so those with dairy allergies should be cautious.

    What % of dark chocolate would you use? I find anything less than 90% has too much sugar in it.

    Looks like milk chocolate, not dark, in the photo. I use 90% dark Lindt chocolate.

    Where do you find raw macadamia nuts? All the ones I can find are roasted.

    I’ve tried this twice and both times chocolate seizes when I add MCT oil. How do you keep it from seizing?

    Let me give you another recipe. Don't use sugar alcohols like erythritol because it changes your gut flora in a bad way!
    If you are one off the lucky people who can't taste the bitter aftertaste of Stevia you should use it instead of honey but if you are like me
    I would just use a little bit of honey because even of you eat 100gr. it shouldn't kick you out of ketosis.

    100gr. Organic coconut butter
    10gr. Dark chocolate 85% (with normal sugar)
    5gr. Honey
    2gr. Orange zest
