Healthy Low Carb Chocolate Bites

Healthy Low Carb Chocolate Bites

Hey all! Everyone seems to request healthy dessert recipes around the holidays, so I figured I would keep it fairly basic with this chocolate recipe. One of my nutrition clients told me her “non-negotiable” food was chocolate…so this one is especially for her!

If you have not already purchased mini silicone cups for healthy cooking/baking, you must order a pack immediately. These are so much fun to use, and the kiddos will love them as well!

I played around with this recipe a few different times, and in the end, the fewer ingredients the better. I tried a recipe using cocao butter, but have yet to get the proportions right to post. I tried a recipe using half coconut oil and half earth balance butter, but had a weird aftertaste. Like I said before, the basic ingredients/recipe had the best results. Everyone these days seems to have coconut oil in their pantry, but few seem to have cocao butter. Coconut oil for the win!!

  • Gather all ingredients, a small saucepan, spoon, measuring tools/cups, and the silicone cups.
I omitted the earth balance butter and subbed the stevia powder for liquid stevia.

  • Scoop the coconut oil into the saucepan and melt the coconut oil on low heat. Add in the vanilla extract and stir. Add in the liquid stevia in the raw drops.

  • Add in the protein powder and Cocoa powder and stir together until well blended. Turn off heat.12
  • Scoop the healthy chocolate protein concoction into the individual silicone cups. You can get as creative as you would like at this point. Add raspberries, nuts, peanut butter, etc…Have fun with it!

Line the bottom and sides with chocolate. I used more protein powder in this picture to allow for thicker texture for packing. If the chocolate is too thin, place in fridge (for 5 minutes) after you pack bottom, and then add peanut butter. Top with chocolate and place back into refrigerator.
