Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Truffles & A Giveaway!

Cutting back on carbs but are still craving some sweetness? Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Truffles are a simple no-bake treat low on carbs and high on flavor. Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Truffles

I am was born with a serious sweet tooth. Chocolate has always been my sweet of choice. Chocolate paired with coconut is pretty much my dream come true. It seems like I shoehorn coconut into lots of the chocolate recipe I make, like these chocolate coconut marshmallow treats and my chocolate coconut granola. I bet you can guess what my favorite candy bar is.

It’s a match made in dessert heaven.

Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Truffles are a great low carb treat full of healthy fats and low on sugar

With as serious as my sweet tooth is, I’m trying to be disciplined and cut back a bit on the sheer number of carbs that I consume. Because of this, I’ve been dabbling in some low carb dessert options recently and came up with these low carb chocolate coconut truffles! They are made with a few simple ingredients:

Plus, these little treats are no-bake and take just a few minutes to make. I have been making a batch of these to keep in the refrigerator for when I crave a little bite but don’t want to over indulge. One or two of these little guys is all I need have my sweet tooth satisfied and get a taste of some creamy chocolate coconut goodness.

For the sweetness, I like to use liquid stevia drops. Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from the stevia leaf and it takes just a small amount of stevia to sweeten the entire batch of these low carb chocolate coconut truffles.

Whether you are watching your carb intake or not, these little truffles are a sweet, no-bake way to get in a bit of chocolate (and coconut!) into your day.
