Chocolate Pecan Bites – Keto Friendly

 

Bites -Keto

Keto foods are delicious if you love butter, heavy whipping cream, and coconut.  Since I love all of these items, I really enjoy eating keto-friendly, low-carb recipes.  Most recently, I created a delightful chocolate pecan bite that isn’t too sweet, but can be sweetened to your desire with a little extra sweetener.  I use monk fruit sweetener but you could use Stevia if you prefer. These little gems aren’t difficult to make and can really jazz up your dessert options without causing too much stress on your time schedule.  I made a small batch and we ate after a Chicken Cauliflower casserole.  (I will share this recipe later.  In fact, due to adding so many keto-friendly foods, I have decided to create a category on the website to ensure those who are interested in these recipes can find them all at the click of a few selections.)

Ingredients:

2 heaping tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour

1/3 cup Coconut Flakes (Organic and unsweetened)

2 Tbsp. Salted Butter

1 heaping tablespoon Hershey’s Cocoa

1/2 cup Creamy Natural Peanut Butter (nothing added but peanuts and salt)

3 oz. Cream Cheese

9 Pecan halves (for the top)

Monk Fruit Sweetener (with Erythritol) 2 Tbsp. (You can add more if you want a sweeter version.)

This is the easiest recipe ever!  You will add melted butter and cream cheese together.  Cream.  Then, add all other ingredients except for the pecan halves.  Mix well.  Make into round balls.  Then, top with pecan halves and push down to desired thickness.  Put in refrigerator until ready to eat.  Enjoy! This recipe should make 9 bites.
