Feel free to use whatever nut butter you prefer or have on hand. Some good options would be almond butter, macadamia nut butter, cashew butter or a good quality peanut butter. If you do peanut butter, I would recommend getting the Maranatha brand here which tests their peanuts to make sure they are free of mold toxins.
Unfortunately most peanut butter is contaminated with aflatoxin molds and is often highly processed and very inflammatory. So be sure to get the right brand if you are going to use it. The quality of the ingredients is always an important consideration when you prepare your food.
We used the Lily’s Chocolate chips which are flavored with stevia and erythritol. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that dosn’t impact your blood sugar but for some individuals it can cause gas and bloating.
Feel free to experiment with the stevia drops so you can make it to your desired sweetness. The combination of chocolate and almond butter tastes so good it dosn’t really need much extra flavoring.

These raw brownie bites are a fantastic keto friendly dessert treat that taste great, are easy to make and full of healthy ingredients. The only problem, is they are so good that you may not be able to stop eating them!! Lol!
Almond butter and coconut flour are rich in healthy fats and prebiotic fiber to support a healthy microbiome. Cacao or minimally processed chocolate is rich in polyphenolic anti-oxidants and compounds such as PEA’s and theobromide which boost up the feel good neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin to improve your mood!!
