Sugar-Free Chocolate Bites with Reishi and Shilajit

This recipe began as an adaptation on a ketoified sugar-free chocolate peanut butter bar. I poked around my shelves to see what else I could add in. One thing lead to another and here we are…

Sugar-free chocolate is not as challenging to make as it may first appear to be. Tristan recently discussed sweeteners on a ketogenic diet in a youtube video (if you haven’t subscribed to the channel, please do!)

There are many different options you can choose from that will balance the bitter cacao flavor with sweetness. In the recipe below, I use a natural, zero-calorie sweetener called Lakanto (a combination of monk fruit extract and erythritol). It adds a well rounded sweet taste without any carbs. We don’t opt for artificial sweeteners and lakanto is a great natural sugar substitute with no glycemic index.

We have been following a low-carb ketogenic diet for years, our taste buds are very sensitive to sweet tastes and need very litle sweetener to satisfy. Two of our ebooks are formulated around 100% whole foods sweeteners and desserts. Maca: The Andean Adaptogen and of course, The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook are both packed with healthy nutrient dense dessert ideas that nourish the body.

Keep these resources in mind when you are planning your holiday dishes.

With Lakanto as a tool in your toolkit, making sugar-free chocolate or any keto approved dessert becomes possible. Lakanto can be used as a 1:1 substitute for sugar. I rarely use much, a little goes a long way. If you are new to a low-carb lifestyle and your taste buds are not yet adapted to savory flavors, you may want to experiment to find the amount that is right for you.

Medicinal Add-ins for this Sugar-Free Chocolate

Reishi Triterpene Crystals A concentrated source of the most potent components of the esteemed reishi mushroom, these triterpenes benefit the body when it is under stress. They are adaptogenic and immune boosting.

Shilajit This nutrient-rich resin comes from high mountain crevasses in India. It is full of vitamins, minerals, and medicinal humic and fulvic acids. Shilajit supports energy levels, memory, mood, and natural detoxification pathways.

Chocolate is lots of fun to make. If you enjoy it, be sure to check out some of my other favorites like this sugar-free chocolate recipe with almonds.
