Low carb fix for chocolate cravings

Standard

I don’t really know what to call this recipe that I concocted to help soothe my sweet tooth.  It’s sort of like a Mounds bar mixed with a Reese’s.  But then there’s the pecans, too, which add another dimension.  It simply defies description.  There’s no good name for this, other than perhaps Yummmmmy.

This recipe has enough carb that you probably couldn’t eat it if you were maintaining induction levels of carb intake.  But at 5g, it’s not a bad treat on a night when you just want something a little indulgent and that reminds you a bit of a candy bar.

Yummmmmy (aka, the Chocolate Cravings Fixer)
(net carbs: 5g)

  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pecans
  • 1 Tbsp SF vanilla syrup (like Torani or DaVinci)
  • 1/2 Tbsp SF caramel syrup (like Torani or DaVinci)

Melt the peanut butter and coconut oil in the microwave for about 20 to 30 seconds in a custard cup.  Mix in all remaining ingredients.  Freeze or refrigerate for 10 to 20 minutes until it thickens or hardens (whichever you prefer – you could just eat it warm and goopy if you wanted!).  Play some mood music, close your eyes, and eat it slowly to savor all of its deliciousness.
