I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Love these chocolates. I'd like to know how you come up with the Nutrient Values. I'm using Cronometer and I've noticed several recipes, when I add them there, arrive at much different values, particularly the carbs and fibre which Cronometer always shows as higher. Don't like that! What do you use? Thnx.

Hi Eveline, we use a reliable food database so it's more than likely that what you get with your app is not correct. Many apps use crowd sourced data and they do very little to prevent errors (most prefer quantity to quality). They often include incomplete data, especially when it comes to net carbs - many apps fail to calculate them right. We use verified sources and we also developed a way to prevent obvious errors in non-verified sources. More about our database: Barcode Scanning and Food Database in the KetoDiet App

I am so happy to hear that because the numbers I get through Cronometer when I put in a recipe are outrageously higher than your recipes and while being out half a carb or even a whole carb is not so bad, when there are many carbs of difference, that is not so good. So thank you for that. I will just use the recipe info as you have posted them. Much relieved! 😊

You're welcome! 😊

Hello! Thanks for this nice, straightforward recipe! The flavour is great. I was wondering if you might have any advice for me. I find my chocolate turned out horribly gritty. I used powdered erythritol (Sukrin brand) and added it using a sieve to ensure it was nice and fine and there were no chunks. Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks so much!

Hiello Mia, I'm sorry to hear that! Powdered erythritol or swerve are good options but there is some crystallisation, especially after chilling. For really smooth chocolate it's best to use liquid stevia (but there is some aftertaste) or powdered allulose (no aftertaste). I hope this helps!

Hi - I’m quite surprised at your proportions. I’ve been making chocolate like this for a few years and any recipes I looked for initially used the same amount of cacao butter and powder. Is there a reason why you use a (more or less) 1:4 ratio? Is this what constitutes natural cacao liquor?

Reply

Hi Allison, I think it depends on your palate. I like this ratio but you could add more cacao powder, or use less. I think that using the same amount of cacao butter and cacao powder would make the chocolate too strong/bitter but again it depends on your palate. Also, more cocoa powder would add carbs so it depends how you are planning to use the chocolate.

Hi...just came across your wonderful website while looking for keto recipes!!
I have a query though - can we substitute cacao powder for Hershey's cocoa powder??
Thank you...n keep up the great work!

Reply

Thank you for your kind words! Yes, you can substitute cacao powder with unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch process). I hope this helps!

Reply

Thank you very much for sharing these lovely recipes. The recipes are simple in ingredients and easy to follow. Unfortunately I react to all sweeteners and have gone used to food without sweetness. How much cacao powder do you think I should reduce to so that the chocolate isn’t too bitter? Many thanks!

Reply

Hi Vini, that's hard to tell but I'd go by taste and add cacao slowly by tablespoons, mix and taste.

Reply

Mine separated into layers  whether I cooled it on the counter, the fridge, or the freezer?

Reply

I'm not sure why that happened - did you use any substitutes?

Reply

Hi, I was wondering if these chocolates could be used in baking, such as in a chocolate chip cookie?

Reply

Yes, they can be used just like baking chocolate (you can make chocolate chips using this recipe) 😊

Reply

Thanks for the recipe. Question what % would you say this recipe yields? Just wondering if we can use this in any of your recipes that call for 85 or 90% chocolate?

Reply

Hi Mark, this would be the ideal chocolate for any of my recipes as I use 85-90% chocolate in most of my recipes. Some recipes require 100% chocolate which does not contain sweetener but it always depends on your preference.

Reply

Do you have to use erythritol or can you use stevia powder? I'm not a fan of the erythritol.

Reply

Any sweetener (stevia, erythritol, swerve or monk fruit) will work. If you use stevia powder you'll have to use just a pinch as it's very sweet.

thank you so very much...
I was looking for a very simple fat bomb I could "grab and go" for the next 45 days. As my daughter says "you filled my bucket".
Can I use ghee?
Thanks

Reply

Could you use real butter like Kerrygold? Also, I use Pyure brand stevia (an all natural sweetener), could I sub that for the Swerve/Erythritol? I love your blog, I spend way too much time looking at and making recipes off of it! I used to be Paleo but switched to Keto and am in my third week. Fat bombs are my favorite treat, I made the porridge this morning and it was to die for!

Reply

Thank you for your kind words, Kim! I would personally avoid that particular brand of stevia-based sweetener because it contains maltodextrin which affects blood sugar. Here's more about sweeteners: Complete Guide To Sweeteners on a Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet
Regular dairy butter and even coconut oil would work instead of cacao butter but only if you keep them in the fridge (they would melt at room temperature). With dairy butter they will last for up to a week.

Reply

Martina  There are 2 versions of Pyure available, one is a baking blend and contains maltodextrin. the other is only stevia and erythritol. Thought you should be aware of this before telling others not to use it.

Reply

Thank you Jacqueline, I was not aware - it was the first product I found and didn't think of going though all of their sweeteners.

Reply

Pyure also has one that is organic Stevia extract (REB A) with no other ingredient. It is a fine powder that is very sweet, only a dab is necessary.
