Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a low-carb, fat burning, ketogenic snack or dessert recipe that could be consumed as a meal due to its powerful nutrients and blood sugar stabilizing effects.  The fact that it contains the combination of good fats, antioxidants (in the cacao), clean protein and fiber make it a meal replacement!

I changed the original recipe which called for honey and tahini so I could use stevia and coconut butter.  Stevia is much better on your blood sugar than honey.  Another good sweetener that is very low-glycemic is monk fruit or lao han extract.

I swapped the tahini for the coconut butter because tahini is very high in omega 6 fats that have an inflammatory impact on the body.  Tahini is considered a healthy food around the world, but it is not even close to as good for you as the coconut butter which contains anti-inflammatory fats and fiber.

Coconut fats are medium chain, which are easily burned by our body, producing ketones.  Ketones provide an alternative fuel source for sugar and therefore, they have a positive impact on keeping blood sugar stable.  Stable blood sugar means you will burn more fat, build more lean body tissue and improve your brain and body.

Bone broth protein powder contains collagen, which is the major building block for our skin, hair, nails and intestinal lining.  I use bone broth protein daily for the key amino acids and the gut healing and anti-aging benefits I get with it.  You will absolutely LOVE the flavor of the chocolate which is amazing!

    1. Patricia,

      Most grocery stores carry full-fat coconut milk in the can which will have a layer of cream on the top if you chill it in the fridge before opening. You can also order it from amazon here!

  1. Macros would be so helpful on these recipes for us who use myfitnesspal to track our ratios. Thanks for the great recipes.

  2. Do you have a good suggestion for a substitute for the grass fed butter? I have dairy issues and butter is at the top of the list of foods I must avoid.

    1. Hey Sonja, Ghee is usually well tolerated by individuals with dairy issues. You could also add in extra coconut butter and/or coconut oil or try the recipe with the addition of a nut butter in replacement of the butter. Let us know how it turns out for you!
