Low Carb Chocolate Bars Recipe. This is the best low carb chocolate and is so easy to make with a few simple ingredients. This keto friendly chocolate will be perfect to satisfy those cravings and your budget.
I’ve been so excited to share this with you guys! Low Carb Chocolate.. it is the future. 😉
It is safe to say that chocolate is the way to my families heart. Needless to say we needed to find a better low carb option with these Low Carb Chocolate Bars!!
You can always buy low carb chocolate chips (affiliate link) but for how much our family loves chocolate it simply hasn’t been the most cost efficient way of doing things. Making our own chocolate is significantly cheaper and it is super easy to make! The biggest problem we have is making enough to get us through the week.
The flavor of this chocolate is nice and strong (but not as strong as dark chocolate), so I’m including data for smaller bars because a little really does tame a savage sweet tooth.
other ways to spruce up our keto chocolate bars:
Now that we’ve got a base, you may wonder what’s next for these low carb chocolate bars. Oh-so-many flavors and options!
- Mint – Couple drops of mint extract and you’ll have Mint Chocolate Bars.
- Orange – Couple drops of orange extract and orange zest for Orange Chocolate Bars. I LOVE orange and chocolate together. It is the bestttttttt.
- Red Pepper Flakes – Sprinkle in a teaspoon of red pepper flakes for some heat to make some Heated Chocolate Bars. I’ve tried this, it’s actually pretty good!
- Sea Salt – Sprinkle a teaspoon of sea salt in (or on) our chocolate bars for Salted Chocolate Bars.
HOW MANY NET CARBS FOR OUR LOW CARB KETO Chocolate
2 Net Carbs per serving. There are 48 grams of sugar alcohols in this recipe. The Net Carbs per serving is by subtracting the sugar alcohol from the carbs. If you’d like to use another form of sugar alcohol be sure to check out our low carb sweetener conversion chart.
My family does subtract the sugar alcohols and I’ll continue to provide that sugar alcohol grams above the nutrition card below and you can decide for yourself if you want to follow that.
If you are new to this Low Carb/Keto lifestyle and are unsure what we are talking about please feel free to read up more on Net Carbs and why people do or don’t subtract sugar alcohols.
Now that you’ve created your chocolate here is what next.
We wait… this is the worst step in my opinion.
- If you want you can pour into a chocolate mold (this is the one we have (affiliate link) But you can use this recipe for even mini chocolate chips using chocolate molds like this (affiliate link)
- You can quicken this waiting stage by popping our chocolate into the refrigerator.
- Once it has hardened, we are ready to devour!
Low Carb Chocolate Bars Recipe
- Melt the oil in a pot on the stove, or in a microwave using a microwave safe bowl.
- While the oil is hot, stir in the rest of the ingredients, whisking to remove any lumps from the cocoa powder. This can take a few minutes. The mixture should be thick and creamy when everything is well combined.
- Pour the chocolate into a parchment-lined baking dish, or chocolate mold or choice and set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until the chocolate has hardened completely.
- Set the dish out on a counter for about 20-30 minutes to allow the chocolate to soften up a bit before cutting.
- Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer.
