**I've linked some of these ingredients to amazon.com to give you an idea of what they are, but you should also be able to find them in your local grocery store (usually, the natural & organic food section).

- Refined Coconut Oil - You can use regular coconut oil, but I like to use refined coconut oil, like this one, because there's less coconut flavor/scent.
- Cocoa Powder - any kind, usually found in the baking aisle
- Stevia - In order to keep this keto, I used stevia. You can also use 1 Tbsp of honey for this recipe or other liquid sweeteners of choice like maple syrup, agave syrup, or liquid stevia

3-Ingredient Keto Chocolate Bar
Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Measure out the coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 20-30 seconds until melted.
Add the cocoa powder.
Add the stevia powder or liquid stevia, to taste.
Pour the coconut-cocoa mixture into a silicone chocolate bar mold. Let the chocolate harden in the fridge for about an hour. Enjoy!
Recipe Variations and Optional Add Ins:
- You don’t have to keep this plain. Add some nuts, or dried fruits to add texture to this chocolate
- Coffee or mocha? Add either a teaspoon of coffee extract or espresso powder.
- With natural flavoring / extracts. Feel free to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (I didn't feel like it was essential so I left it out in this recipe), or other flavorings or extracts, such as orange peel, or peppermint extract.
- You can also use different silicone mold shapes if you don't have the chocolate bar mold.
- Dip the chocoalte mixture into fruit! Here's the recipe link
How to Store
- The coconut oil in the chocolate makes it difficult for the chocolate to maintain its proper texture at room temperature. Store any leftover chocolate in the fridge. For longer storage, you can place them in the freezer for up to 4 months.
- Be sure to use a microwave-safe bowl (preferably glass, like this one)
