We've all been there. We tell ourselves we can live off of meat, veg, and healthy fats and will never crave a dessert again. Who needs all that sugar anyway? Then one night after a delicious keto dinner, you're sitting on the couch snuggled in to watch your favorite show and it hits you. You start craving something sweet, but you don't want to ruin all your progress or hard work. You just want a small low carb dessert. Is that so much to ask for?
No. It is not.
Just give these keto dark chocolate nut butter clusters a try.
These low carb dark chocolate nut butter clusters make the perfect keto dessert. They are just over 1 net carb per cluster. The best part is you can make a batch and store them in your freezer for the next time a craving hits.
How to make this simple keto dessert
This recipe is easy to adjust to your liking. For instance, we used Performance Nut Butter in this recipe. We felt it added a delicious flavor while keeping the sweetness low. Although, you could use almond butter, peanut butter, or any nut butter if you wanted.
Also, I really like dark chocolate. The darkest you can get. It's 100% dark or I'm not interested. I realize that's not everyone's cup of tea. So, you can also use less dark chocolates, or add some of your sugar substitute of choice.
Whatever adjustments you make, just be sure to track it in whatever you use to track your nutrition.
Tools We Used:
2 packets (60g) Performance Nut Butter (PNB)
28g unsweet coconut flakes
28g sliced almonds
30g walnuts halves
60g dark chocolate
First crush the walnut halves, but not too fine. You want there to be some texture.
Melt the chocolate.
Mix the nuts and coconut flakes into the melted chocolate.
Shake the PNB packets, then tear open and pour into the mixture, continuing to stir together.
Distribute the mixture evenly into your silicone ice cube tray and place in the freezer to harden.
Once hardened, enjoy!
These can be kept in the freezer or fridge, and make a great pop of sweetness when the craving hits.
