There are a million keto, low carb, and fat bomb chocolate recipes. For every recipe I found I was missing one ingredient or didn’t have enough of another. Some paleo/primal version used honey or something else that wasn’t in my pantry or allowed in my belly.
I just decided to try something on my own (I do that a lot) after reading so many cookbooks and recipes.
This is my version of a chocolate cup and it fits within the keto, fat fast, Atkins, low carb plan. Or, yummy just to eat on NO plan!
Although – I recommend hiding them from yourself, and husbands!
First I melted 1/2 cup of coconut oil in a pan. Then I added a stick of unsalted butter (I believe a stick is 8tbsp, but don’t quote me on that). This will certainly up your calories. After making these you could certainly use none or half a stick. The choice is yours. Be sure to track your recipe macro on a website like My Fitness Pal. (It’s free! Join me!)
Once that was melted I added 3/4c Splenda. It was all I had. Which sucked because I learned the hard way that using that much Splenda (not the 50/50 sugar kind) still adds carbs. Boo. Hiss. I need to invest in some liquid stevia everyone raves about. You can also change the amount of Splenda to suit your tastes.
Next I added 2tsp Vanilla, although I am not sure this was necessary with the Splenda.
3 tbsp. cocoa powder.
Set aside 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes.
Once everything was melted I used muffin tins. I put about a tbsp. in each tin. It made 16. Then I sprinkled a pinch of coconut flakes on the top of each one. Cooled in fridge. Stored in freezer.
They end up being 2 net carbs each.
My husband isn’t much of a sweet eater. But he gobbled these up in a nanosecond. They were amazing.
I am going to experiment with the recipe a bit.

Those look AMAZING! I can’t wait to try these! Do you think the Stevia amount would be the same as the Splenda amount? I think I am going to bite the bullet and try the Stevia because I have heard nothing but great stuff.

From what I understand a tiny drop equals quite a bit of powder stuff. I think a read in another recipe a reader used 1-2 drops which compared to like a cup of splenda. I think it ends up being a personal preference but that is why its expensive and you get very little. Little goes a long way!
Thanks for this recipe! Made them this afternoon and they were delicious! I used six packets of truvia (it’s all I had), but they turned out great! I changed up the serving size to 12 and they ended up being 2 carbs and 238 calories each.
Debbie, I am so glad they worked out well for you! They are on my list of recipe to make again – this time with some better pics I hope! I wanted to see how they would turn out with some Stevia.
How much fat do they have?
About 15 grams.
These are amazing, I left the stevia out as I can’t stand the taste of it, and I used noon dairy butter instead. These came out sooooooo good. I could just eat them ALL. But, I won’t.
