These keto chocolates can be ready in 20 minutes, these hearts can be a great last-minute make if you’re wanting to treat somebody who is living a keto/low-carb lifestyle, or you’ve had a bad day at work and you deserve a treat!
I have added whole nuts to these to give them a bit of extra crunch – plus they take me a bit of extra time to eat!
Normal, commercial chocolate has far too much sugar in it, for it to be keto-friendly. That’s why these chocolate hearts require chocolate with a high cacao content (90% or higher).
It is then sweetened through the natural sweeteners of the coconut oil, a dash of vanilla essence and a bit of erythritol (a keto-friendly sugar substitute). This will not spike your blood sugar, and as long as they are not over-eaten, they will not knock you out of ketosis.
