White chocolate is now demystified… the secret is cacao butter! Cacao butter is the fat of the cacao bean once the powder has been separated. It is rich, white, and creamy – the essential ingredient in any good ketogenic white chocolate recipe.
This recipe pairs cacao butter with Brazil nuts to achieve a smooth, nutrient dense, good-for-you ketogenic white chocolate.
Brazil nuts are a wonderful source of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements. Everyone loves peanut butter, but what about all the other nuts out there? There are many other options which (in my opinion) are far superior than the humble peanut in both nutrient density and taste.

If you can not access Brazil nuts, replace them with any nut and nut butter combination you see worthy. Almond, macadamia, hazelnut or peanut are all fine substitutions.
Benefits of Brazil Nuts
Brazil nuts are so nutrient dense, a few go a long way to promoting health and longevity. Here is a quick snapshot of their benefits and why I chose to add them to this ketogenic white chocolate.
- B complex vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, niacin, folate, and pyridoxine
- minerals like maganese, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and zinc
- the highest concentration of selenium in a whole food source
- ellagic acid known to be anti-inflammatory and possibly neuroprotective
- antimutagenic properities
- help regulate healthy blood pressure
- act as a natural remedy for thyroid health
Brazil nuts will fuel your body in many ways other than simply provide a source of healthy fats.
Be sure to read up on selenium and how important it is for the human body!
Some studies indicate there may be a link between selenium and reduced mercury levels. It is a known anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer trace element. Selenium is also touted as an remedy against anxiety, depression, and tiredness.
