Special Notes:

Feel free to add in almond or vanilla extract to add more flavor to the recipe. You could also add in cocoa butter with the melted chocolate for a more creamier texture and also provides more antioxidants.

For the chocolate, we chose to use the Lily’s chocolate which has stevia and erythritol and brings incredible flavor to the recipe.  You could also just use an unsweetened baker’s chocolate like this here and it will take out a bit of the sweetness.  The combination of chocolate, almonds and coconut has a natural flavor that many people enjoy without any added sugar or sweetener.

Dr Jockers Comments

This almond joy Easter egg recipe is a great dessert treat that is low in carbs and sugar and high in healthy fats and anti-oxidants.  If you are looking for a nice indulgence this Easter season, than skip all the processed chocolate eggs and candy and make this recipe.

Chocolate contains powerful polyphenolic anti-oxidant compounds that support cardiovascular health and improve blood flow to the brain.  It also has theobromide and PEA amino acids that help to boost up feel good neurochemicals such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphins.

I personally love the coconut and chocolate flavor combination and the almonds provide an incredible crunch.  I think you will love this recipe and if you are interested in more fat burning, ketogenic recipes than check our complete Navigating the Ketogenic Diet program here
