Make Your Own Homemade Chocolate! – Only 3 Ingredients – A Low Carb and Keto Friendly Recipe

July 19, 2019 74 By William Morgan


Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present
a different and unique way to make your
own chocolate. Using only three
ingredients, this very easy recipe can be
used as chocolate chips in your
favorite cookie or brownie recipe or
enjoy it on its own it’s a delicious
chocolate candy. It also has a fraction
of a net carbohydrates as some of the premade
low carbohydrate chocolate found in stores. Let
me show you what I mean. Now I love to
use Lilly’s chocolate when I bake, but it
can be a bit pricey and when we look at
the macros, you’ll see that 14 grams,
which is just about a half an ounce, has a
total of eight total carbohydrates; and when we
subtract the fiber and the sugar
alcohols we end up with three grams of
net carbohydrates. while low, it’s more than
three and a half times the net carbohydrates in
this recipe. As I said, we’ll only need
three ingredients… coconut oil,
unsweetened cocoa powder, and a liquid
sugar substitute. You’ll also need a
silicon mould for shaping your chocolate.
Any size and shape mold will work. I’m
using one here to make some chocolate
chips. I find using a pourable microwave
safe measuring cup to be very helpful
when making this recipe. Put a half a cup
of coconut oil into the measuring cup
and microwave for about 20 to 40 seconds,
or until the oil is melted. Add a liquid
sugar substitute equal to 3/4 of a cup
of regular sugar. This amount of
sweetener will give you a sweetness
level on par with semi-sweet chocolate.
Add a half a cup of unsweetened cocoa
powder and mix well to stir. I like to
run the spoon against the sides to help
break up any clumping.
This recipe makes just a little less
than 5 ounces or a total of 135 grams of
chocolate. Once the cocoa powder has
fully been incorporated into the coconut
oil, test for sweetness and add more if
you desire a
sweeter chocolate. Pour the liquid
chocolate into the mold of your choosing
and place in the freezer for 30 minutes
to help set quicker. When the chocolate
hardens removed from the mold and place
in a container for storage in the
refrigerator. There you have it folks! My
very simple, three ingredient low carbohydrate
homemade chocolate. A recipe that’s easy
to make and can be used for any recipe
that calls for semi-sweet chocolate – or
simply enjoy it on its own. I hope you
