  1. Sweeteners are crap. Carbs is crap.
    A recipe without sweeteners (or appears so)? Amazing.

    Not at all, "Sugar free chocolate" is full of sweeteners.
    In addition I wonder what the use of the word "decadent" in many recipes refers to, because it sounds to me like "tasty but unhealthy"?

    Small nuance, 100% cocoa chocolate is indeed sugar free, I however doubt this is the chocolate type referred to, or it would have said so? In any case sugar free milk chocolate is heavily sweetened.

    can i substitute coconut oil for something else?

    All nut butters I know have a too low melting point. Thus, this recipe cannot work as it lowers the melting point even more. I don't want to store sweets in the fridge.
