Is there such a thing has ketogenic chocolate? You bet there is!
Sultry, dark and bitter are all the best aspects of chocolate. One of my favorite after dinner (or lunch or breakfast) treats is 100% cacao paste. The paste is made by pressing chocolate beans into a solid form. The paste is pure dark chocolate, similar to bakers chocolate – but tastes way better!
Cacao paste is an ingredient found in both of my cookbooks. I use it all the time for simple (and decadent) ketogenic chocolate recipes. You can learn exactly how I make chocolate infused recipes like a Mint Chocolate Bar, Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse, and more with this collection of keto chocolate ideas.

Organic Heirloom Cacao from Ecuador
I’m a huge chocolate lover and love living abroad in Ecuador for many reasons, one of which is being able to source locally grown, organic cacao. There are various zones throughout the country that grow cacao, each promising a slight variation in flavor.
Buying the right brand is important when it comes to cacao, not all chocolate is created equal.

Pacari takes a different approach to growing cacao than most of the big names. Their biodynamic practices preserve and protect heritage breeds and old growth cacao groves. They never use CCN-51 beans or genetic hybrids of cacao.
You can find all the ingredients needed to make your own ketogenic chocolates in our shop plus ketogenic chocolate bars! These 100% and 101% bars are made in a very unique way which allows the floral fruity flavors to emerge from cacao paste in a sweet and delicious way.
Valentines Day is just around the corner, which inspires me to make this list of delicious, decadent and nutritious ketogenic chocolate recipes.
It was a little hard for me to focus on gathering all these recipes and not immediately run down to the kitchen and start making them. These all look amazing!
