Hey, folks! I’ve been keeping healthy gummies and chocolates in stock for when the kids need a quick snack, but yesterday we ran out of our homemade peanut butter cups (recipe coming soon). I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with making a solid milk chocolate, so this was a lot of fun!
Chocolate Almond Bites (grain free, keto)
- 2-4 Tbsp Cocoa powder
- 1 Cup Salted butter 1 stick
- 1/4 Cup Coconut oil
- 1/4 Cup Erythritol
- 1/4 Tsp Vanilla extract
- 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon For extra flavor
- 1 Tsp Moringa greens powder or collagen powder Optional, I just like packing it in for the kids
- 1/4 Cup Raw Almonds Whole or crushed
- 1/4 Cup Heavy whipping cream
With a mortar and pestle or rolling pin, crush the almonds into a coarse consistency.
In a microwave safe bowl combine butter and coconut oil. Microwave for 15-30 seconds. If butter and oil are soft already you can skip this. We don't want melted, only softened, so watch it closely.
Mash the two together with a fork.
Add cream and vanilla and mix.
Add cocoa powder, greens powder, and erythritol. Stir the dry ingredientd in well. You should have a pretty, milk chocolate with a mousse-like consistency.
For setting the chocolate, either line a container with parchment paper or use plastic or silicone, something that you can pop the chocolate out of easily. Mix the almonds into your chocolate or spread them on top afterwards.
Using a spatula or spoon, spread the mixture evenly in your container or mold. Place in the fridge to set for 4-6 hours.
Remove from refrigerator. Pull parchment paper out and, with a sharp knife, slice into squares.
Store in refeigerator for up to a week.
