Keto Treats – Cocoa Coco Nut

I was searching online for tasty nut butters when I decided to try to make my own creation instead. This is what I put together with what I had on hand. Deliciously low-carb and satisfying for 105 calories and 1 net carb.

Coconut oil – 2 tablespoons
Cocoa powder (unsweetened) – 1 teaspoon
Ground Hazelnuts (or pecans or almonds) – 1/4 cup
Cinnamon – 1/4 teaspoon
Nut butter (I used almond) – 1 tablespoon.
Almond meal (optional or equivalent amount of ground nuts) – 2 tablespoons
Truvia (optional) – 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon to taste
Whole nuts for garnish (optional) – 12-18 nuts

Blend hazelnuts in a coffee grinder or food processor and set aside. Heat coconut until it melts (a few minutes on the stove or 10-20 seconds in a microwave). Stir in the unsweetened cocoa powder with the coconut oil. Add the rest of the ingredients  including hazelnuts and stir. Pour into 6 cupcake liners (paper or silicone). Chill in fridge for 30-60 minutes and enjoy!

The changing color of autumn leaves is a perfect example of impermanence. The reality is that most things change over time: our jobs, our lives and our bodies! Change is good but positive change takes intention and action.

What is one specific change you’d like to see in your life?

What is one action step you can commit to in order to get you there?
