Yield 12 (2" x 2" squares)



Step #1:  Line a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper.

Step #2:  In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the coconut oil. Add the cacao powder, nut butter, and vanilla extract, and add the MCT oil, stevia or protein powder, and salt, if using. Cook, whisking constantly to remove any lumps, until well blended. Remove from the heat.

Step #3:  Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf pan and refrigerate for 60 minutes, or until firm (coconut oil naturally hardens when refrigerated).

Step #4:  Cut into squares or bars. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.


**If you use the chocolate bone broth protein, it is already flavored with stevia and tastes amazing, so you don’t need to add in any additional stevia!

Keep the squares in the refrigerator so they remain solid, but you can take a few out an hour before you eat them if you want them to be a little softer.

You can use any nut butter you prefer, such as almond butter, cashew butter or coconut almond butter.  I don’t recommend peanut butter as it is high in inflammatory omega 6 fats and mycotoxins.  If you do want to use peanut butter, I know the Maranatha brand uses mold-free peanuts.

For sweetener, these are quite good without any, but if you do want one, I like stevia the best as it is sugar free and has a great flavor when mixed with a slight dash of salt to take out any sort of bitter after taste.

If you want another option other than stevia, I like monk fruit as it is sugar-free as well.  If you choose to use honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar, these will elevate your blood sugar and this will not be a ketogenic recipe.

You could also try a sugar-alcohol like xylitol or erythritol but many people notice digestive disturbances with these sweeteners.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a super easy to make and great tasting recipe that helps put your body into ketosis, improves your brain function and provides collagen proteins to support your skin, nails, joints and gut lining.

I enjoy making this with the Keto Brain as it turns into ketones immediately whereas coconut oil takes time for the body to process and create ketones out of.  I am a fan of getting an immediate influx of ketones and then having other fat sources to keep the ketone production occurring over time…which is what this recipe does.

Chocolate helps to stimulate neurotransmitter production to improve dopamine, serotonin and endorphin levels so you feel amazing and are able to think sharp and clear!

Organic bone broth collagen protein powder is loaded with collagen protein which is what are body uses to create strong and healthy skin, nails, joints and our intestinal lining.  By using bone broth collagen protein, we are helping to strengthen these areas of our body, allowing us to age more gracefully, prevent joint and muscle injuries and heal our gut.

    1. Hey Cindy good question,

      There are technically 4 MCT’s: C6, C8, C10, and C12. The number refers to its length and the shorter it is, the more readily it is converted into ketones for energy. C12 is hardly converted into ketones and therefore doesn’t really act like an MCT. XCT uses a special process to purify the oil to pure C8 & C10 for easy conversion to energy while many other brands have C6 and C12 in them which can irritate the stomach a little.

      There is also a pure C8 oil made by the Bulletproof brand called Brain Octane that is admittedly more expensive but the easiest to digest.

      1. hi Dr Jockers. small correction, XCT contains only C8 and C10; C6 would be ideal and utilized the quickest but apparently it has a prohibitive taste and smell. my favorite MCT oil is from NOW Foods, just C8 and C10 at a great price. Many manufacturers as you mention include C12 and then make it sound like that’s great, a dishonest practice in my opinion. I also keep on hand some pure C8 (MiCkey T is my favorite brand) for when I need that extra quick boost.

  1. Dr jockers what if your sensitive to coconut products is there another option that I could use?
    It’s hard to eat keto when you can’t have dairy or coconut.
    Help please.
    Thank you

    1. Hey Giselle, Yes that does limit your options. You could consume more avocados, avocado oils, organic palm oil (from a sustainable source), olive oil, and low-carb nut butters. You could also consume animal based fats like lard and tallow, as well as fatty cuts of pasture-raised meats.

  2. Dr. Jockers I am also sensitive to coconut oil. Would it be ok to make these with organic grass feed butter? and if so, the same amount?

    Thank you in advance,
