Dark Chocolate Keto Bark

Sugar-free chocolate bark with keto macros is only ten minutes away.

It’s hard to beat the savory, nutty aroma of freshly roasted pistachios (or almonds, macadamias, walnuts, pecans…)

Velvety chocolate and crunchy nuts (and only 2 net carbs) make a sugar-free keto bark hearty enough to quell even the most aggressive salty-sweet cravings.

 

Dark-Keto-Nut-Bark

This sugar-free chocolate bark is a modified recipe from The Keto Beginning meal plan for women.

 

Dark Chocolate Keto Bark

Per Serving: 151 calories, 2 net carbs.

Servings: 12

 

Ingredients

1 oz pistachio nuts (about 25 in‐shell nuts), toasted and chopped (Sub almonds, macadamias, walnuts, pecans.)

1/3 c unsweetened coconut flakes

3 1/2 oz dark chocolate, 85% (Sub gluten-free Lily’s stevia-sweetened chips.)

1/2 c coconut butter

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp almond extract, optional

10 drops liquid stevia (or equiv), to taste (Try chocolate stevia.)

1/4 tsp sea salt, coarsely ground

 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Toast shelled pistachios and coconut flakes on a lined baking sheet.

Important:

Coconut flakes brown quickly, so pile these on one side of the baking sheet and remove from oven early.

Toast 5 to 8 minutes, tossing once or twice to prevent burning if necessary. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

In a double boiler, melt cocoa butter and chocolate over low heat. Add in cocoa powder, stevia and salt, stirring gently until well mixed.

Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and almond extracts.

Pour onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. (You may also use a piece of plastic wrap on a baking sheet, a flexible cutting mat, or silicone chocolate bar molds.)

While chocolate is still warm, sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes and roasted nuts. Let cool, break apart your sugar-free chocolate bark, and eat.

Keto Plan for Women

If you’re looking for a body-changing meal plan, The Keto Beginning works with your hormones, sliding you into fat-burning mode without going super low carb.

Keto authority, Leanne Vogel created a program that’s particularly good if you need to break a diet stall, but don’t want a drastic decrease in daily carbs.

 

Special Ingredients

--TEMPLATE

De-Bittered Stevia has no unpleasant aftertaste. This blend has none of the characteristic bitterness of typical stevia sweeteners.

Zero carb and zero glycemic impact.

 

chocolate liquid stevia

Chocolate stevia adds a special punch of flavor – without adding more cocoa, actual chocolate or net carbs.

This version of stevia is a great way to add rich flavor to your sugar-free chocolate bark – without adding more chocolate (and more net carbs.)

 

--TEMPLATE

Unsweetened shredded coconut toasts quickly to a golden-brown, adding incredible flavor and crunch in an instant.

Coconut shreds increase your healthy, medium chain triglyceride fats. Coconut fats aren’t stored. Instead, they’re used immediately for energy.

 

organic coconut butter

Organic coconut butter replaces spreads, cream, cream cheese and butter. Naturally cholesterol-free. Add to smoothies, sauces, dressings and desserts.

 

dark low carb chocolate chips

Lily’s premium dark chocolate baking chips are your low carb solution for recipes, and perfect for this sugar-free chocolate keto bark recipe.

Lily’s stevia-sweetened chips melt and blend easily – with no bitter aftertaste like many stevia infused products.

All-natural, non-GMO ingredients. Fair trade and gluten-free.

 

Dark Chocolate Keto Bark

Easy-release chocolate bar molds make any bark feel like a read candy bar. This set of two is made of BPA-free, non-toxic food grade silicone.

Each chocolate bar mold holds 3 oz for 24 squares – the ultimate in portion control.

Prep, Portion and Cash Control

Save Prep

Roasted whole nuts are much easier to chop than raw whole nuts.

Roast nuts on a parchment paper or foil lined baking sheet. Let cool, carefully fold the foil or paper over in half, and use the bottom of a glass or rolling pin to crush the nuts.

 

Save Cash

Better yet, buy your nuts already chopped. Chopped nuts are cheaper per pound than whole or halved.

 

Save Calories and Carbs

Drop small spoonfuls of your melted mix onto parchment paper, creating one-inch chocolate dots.

Make smaller (half-size or mini), single servings in paper or foil liners, then store in a sealed container in the fridge or freezer.

Cold chocolate and nuts take a little longer to eat. Slow down, take a few extra minutes and fully enjoy your treat.
