Everyone has their own guilty pleasure. They may not want to admit it but lets face it we all have our own weakness. My kryptonite, like many others, is chocolate. Fortunately not only is chocolate delicious it is also good for you as it is made from the seed of the cocoa tree, it is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet. The skinny on chocolate is its nutritious as it contains fiber, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese and it also has plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium!
When buying chocolate be sure to choose the good quality stuff that is 70% or higher cocoa count. Dark chocolate typically contain some sugar, but the amounts are usually small and the darker the chocolate, the less sugar it will contain.
I adapted this recipe from Sweet As Honey’s Healthy Avocado Chocolate truffles. Made a few tweaks and voila Low Carb Chocolate and Peanut Butter Truffles were born….and eaten soon after!
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.
