Dr Jockers Comments

This is a really easy and tasty recipe that is ketogenic, anti-inflammatory and fat burning.  This is loaded with healthy fats, protein and fiber.  It is super easy to make and you will love the flavor.

This is perfect for busy families with growing kids who seem to be hungry all the time.  Keep these in your fridge and let your family help themselves.  They are very calorie dense and low-carb, so that combination helps to balance our hormones and produce a natural sense of satiety.

I enjoy using the stevia and the salt helps to drown out any bitter aftertaste from the stevia, if you were concerned about that.  It is also a great idea to increase your mineral intake when doing a low-carb diet because you tend to excrete more sodium on low-carb, ketogenic diets.  Adding small amounts of Himalayan salt to your foods will improve the flavor and provide the minerals you need.

The Lily’s chocolate chips are great because they are sugar-free and flavored with stevia and erythritol.  Most people do very well with these sweeteners.  For me, sugar alcohols do not seem to agree with my digestive tract and I end up with extra gas.  I prefer using pure cacao nibs like these here

For protein, I love the Bone Broth protein.  You can try the vanilla or the Fit Muscle Booster Bone Broth protein which has the vanilla flavor but has added ashwaghanda to help balance adrenal function and support healthy DHEA levels.  By boosting DHEA levels naturally, this will help both men and women improve their lean body mass and have more energy.

      Hey Deb,

        Mine doesn’t have a scoop can you please tell me how much?

        • Dr. Jockers October 5, 2017 at 10:52 am #

          The scoop that comes in the bone broth protein powder is probably around 4 TBSP

    I notice most of your recipes are Megan Kelly’s – should we just check out her blog?

    • Dr. Jockers April 24, 2017 at 11:06 am #

      Good question Merle!

      For a lot of the recipes I like to make little changes that are more in line with my dietary strategies. I also put in some commentary that will sometimes address substitutions that can be made for certain people depending on their health situation so that is the difference. I hope that helps!

    how many grams of Carbs are in this recipe

    • Dr. Jockers June 26, 2017 at 10:25 am #

      Hey Grace, this would depend on the nut butter you use as this would be the only source of carbs in this recipe. You should be able to figure this out by looking at the label on your nut butter!

    These taste great and are an awesome keto treat, but you can’t pack them in a bag or backpack and go hiking, running, cycling or anything similR because they melt and turn to mush if not kept cold. My guess is because the coconut butter melts as does the nut butter when not kept cool. Total bummer for me as I need a trail running bar to boost my energy after a couple of hours. These are great for at home but no go on the road. If anyone has some ideas to keep em travel stable I’d love to know?!
