  • Refined Coconut Oil You can use regular coconut oil, but I like to use refined coconut oil, like this one, because there’s less coconut flavor/scent.
  • Cocoa Powderany kind, usually found in the baking aisle
  • Stevia In order to keep this keto, I used stevia. You can also use 1 Tbsp of honey for this recipe or other liquid sweeteners of choice like maple syrup, agave syrup, or liquid stevia

  • Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Measure out the coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 20-30 seconds until melted.
  • Add the cocoa powder, 1 Tablespoon at a time.
  • Add the stevia powder or liquid stevia, to taste.
  • Pour the coconut-cocoa mixture into a silicone chocolate bar mold.

  • Let the chocolate harden in the fridge for about an hour. Enjoy!

Recipe Variations and Optional Add Ins:

  • You don’t have to keep this plain. Add some nuts, or dried fruits to add texture to this chocolate
  • Coffee or mocha? Add either a teaspoon of coffee extract or espresso powder.
  • With natural flavoring / extracts. Feel free to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (I didn’t feel like it was essential so I left it out in this recipe), or other flavorings or extracts, such as orange peel, or peppermint extract.
  • You can also use different silicone mold shapes if you don’t have the chocolate bar mold.
what other flavor variations can you think of?

How to Store

  • The coconut oil in the chocolate makes it difficult for the chocolate to maintain its proper texture at room temperature. Store any leftover chocolate in the fridge. For longer storage, you can place them in the freezer for up to 4 months.

Final Tips

  • Be sure to use a microwave-safe bowl (preferably glass, like this one)
  • I found that the amount of cocoa powder might depend on the brand. I recommend starting out by adding 3 Tbsp of cocoa powder and add the additional 1 Tbsp if the mixture feels too thin. The more cocoa powder you add, the more intense the chocolate flavor. Add more coconut oil if the mixture seems too thick
