Keto chocolate macadamia nut fat bombs
- 11⁄3 oz. (42⁄3 tbsp) 38 g (70 ml) sugar-free dark chocolate, stevia-sweetened chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp 1 tbsp MCT oil or coconut oil
- coarse salt or sea salt
- 1½ oz. 45 g raw macadamia nuts halves
- Select a truffle mold, mini muffin pan, or mini baking cups with wells that are 2x1”.
- Place 3 macadamia nut halves in each of 8 wells of the mold or mini muffin pan or in each of 8 mini baking cups.
- 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.
- Spoon some of the chocolate mixture into each well or baking cup, completely covering the nuts. Sprinkle additional salt over the chocolate.
- Transfer the mold or baking cups to the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes, until the chocolate is solid.
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.

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)
2gr. Orange zest

Yes, that should be a good substitute.
We have not tested this recipe with cacao butter.
I would like to know how many servings of your desserts are generally advised to eat (as an occasional treat) when you don´t have to loose weight but doing keto for other health reasons? (i. e. gut disease)
If you are doing keto for gut health, you may want to be very careful with desserts in general as the sweeteners can cause digestive upset for some people.
I melted the cocoa butter along with the chocolate. The chocolate seemed to melt faster so I needed to stir in the cocoa butter to incorporate and then heated for 10 seconds more.
It's up to you! Some people like to let them come to room temperature, but with the coconut oil they will melt faster.
- I'm allergic to nuts ): -
Not that I'm aware of. You could simply make the chocolate balls if you wanted!
We have not tested this recipe with cocoa powder but they do not generally behave the same ingredients and cocoa powder likely wouldn't melt down like the chips would.
thank you! Then I would love to try it, only have to figure out the right size for the pan. :)
I've just made these using this silicone mould from Amazon UK https://www.amazon.co.uk/Webake-Chocolate-Cordial-Truffle-Pudding/dp/...
That will depend on your carb limit and goals for the day. Each serving is 2 pieces.
Great idea! Thanks for sharing!
