Dr Jockers Comments

These chocolate avocado truffles are a fantastic dessert recipe that is low-carb, ketogenic and fat burning.  The combination of avocado and dark chocolate provides healthy fats, fiber and anti-oxidants to help the body produce good hormones that optimize your metabolism.

Stevia is our favorite natural sweetener because it is one hundred times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on blood sugar.  Adding in the cinnamon gives a unique cinnamon flavor and adds in more anti-oxidants that support blood sugar signaling patterns.

This recipe is very easy to make and your family will absolutely LOVE it and be requesting this often!  Perfect for birthdays, special events and gatherings!  Let us know how you enjoyed the recipe in the comments box below!

  1. Hi Dr Jockers I have been using stevia extract since 1985. Recently, and much to my horror, I read that stevia, while low on the glycemic index , raises
    insulin more than table sugar. Is this true?

  2. These sound delicious. Making them today ?
    Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. Also signed up for your newsletter and joined Megan’s blog ❤

    1. Yes, I recommend 1 tsp of honey for 5-10 drops of stevia. If you like it real sweet than do 1 tsp for 5 drops and if you want it less sweet than do 1 tsp for 10 drops.

  3. I have (2) 1oz squares of unsweetened chocolate. Can I use this? If so, how much or do I not have enough? Recipe calls for 3/4 cup.

  4. I’m also not sure about the right amount of chocolate. Do you measure the cup with chocolate broken in pieces? grated? Or do you have the weight in grams for me? Thank you!

  5. It’s so much better if you present recipes using weight, preferably grams. A gram of something is a gram no matter whether it is in one piece or many broken up pieces. Whereas cup of something is difficult to measure accurately. A cup of dark chocolate could be any amount depending on how big the pieces are.

  6. What are the net carbs for 1 truffle? If I’m understanding how to calculate it correctly there is 6 net carbs for only 1 truffle? Thank You!

  7. Is there a recipe for a ginger snap that uses fresh grated ginger that is close to the famous Trader Joe’s Ginger Snaps in taste?
