Modified Atkins Diet for Seizures Coconut Chocolate Balls

We use these to try to get more fat into Casey’s daily diet.  Before our little scare with his spike in cholesterol, we were making a version of these with butter.   This version is made with coconut oil,  and is good for the diet fat ratio (60%) , better for Casey’s cholesterol, and  is supposed to help his state of ketosis.  Plus, his cheeks feel like a baby’s bottom when he consumes them on a daily basis (sorry Casey, couldn’t resist).
8 Tbsp. (1/2 cup) Virgin Coconut Oil

3 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

3 Scoops Stevia  low carb sweetener, or other
3 Tbsp. Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (optional)

Melt the coconut oil to a liquid.  Add in cocoa powder and sweetener. Stir to combine and blend well.

Blend coconut into chocolate mixture (Optional)

Pour into small bon-bon shaped ice cube tray. If you don’t have this, you can pour onto a baking dish and the end result will be like a chocolate bark that you can break into pieces.  It will be more difficult to calculate the carbs this way, but will taste just as good.

Pop in refrigerator or freezer on level shelf and let sit 10 minutes or so.

Above recipe made 21 bon-bon’s

Total recipe = 5 carbs.

.25 carbs per ball for this recipe, but be sure to calculate yours using your own products.
