Coconut chocolate bites

recipe-coconut-chocolate-bites

A day just insn’t complete without a daily dose of chocolate especially when it is low carb. Bear in mind that a serving is only two little squares. One could easily eat the whole batch but regret all those carbs, especially if granular Splenda is used.

When tasting  the mixture before freezing it, it tastes extremely sweet. However, once it was frozen much of the sweetness disappeares. This is very easy to make for a low carb candy. Experiment by adding shredded coconut or chopped nuts.

NOTE:

* If you use refined coconut oil, it won’t have any coconut flavor.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
