Walnut Cardamom Sugar-Free White Chocolate

This sugar-free white chocolate recipe takes a spin on traditional flavor combinations. The coconut oil and cacao butter contribute the rich, creamy base and walnuts provide a crunchy texture.

Sweetening with Lakanto keeps these bites 100% sugar-free and ketogenic, while flavors of vanilla, cardamom, and sea salt permeate each bite. The grass-fed beef collagen emulsifies Lakanto with the fats, further enhancing the creaminess and at the same time, adds a pinch of nutrient density.

Each ingredient mixes wonderfully in your mouth – all in perfect harmony!

I poured these sugar-free white chocolates into mini muffin tins bought from Amazon. This tin is a great little kitchen tool that I use for chocolates, egg muffins, and homemade pemmican. Using muffin tins to form individual portion sizes is a nifty kitchen hack I often employ. I like that each piece will be uniform in size and ready made to easily add into my meal. This simplifies tracking macros and makes portion control all the more easy.

The most recent thing I added to my mini muffin tins was a stevia extract. I froze small portions to keep on hand until I am ready to use them. Usually I use a locally made alcohol called punta, derived from sugar cane, and follow my Homemade Liquid Stevia Extract recipe. However, my pantry has been “dry” lately and I haven’t found any local production. So instead, I made a bit of an experiment with just water. I steeped the whole stevia leaf like a tea, strained it, and warmed the water oh-so-carefully so as not to boil it and let the water evaporate out until it reduced by about half. I have yet to test the result, but I remain hopeful that it will be successful!

If you do not have mini muffin molds, molding the white chocolate in a small glass dish will work just as well. Reusable silicon chocolate molds are also fun to have in your kitchen and play around with.

There are many guilt-free keto chocolate recipes to try too. I know you’ll like them as much as I do.

Making homemade sugar-free chocolate recipes is a lot of fun and something you can do with your children too.

    Hello Jessica and Tristan, first I want to say I love your cookbook..:) secondly, when I seen your walnut, cardamom, sugar free white chocolates I just had to try them since my mouth was watering lol….I only have one little problem. It seems impossible here in Canada to find any and before I buy anything on amazon or anything like that, i was wondering if there is a substitute for this delicious looking recipe?

    Thanks a bunch, Ysabelle

      Thanks for your kind words Ysabelle. Forgive me, but I’m not clear on what you are looking for on Amazon or what you would like to substitute.

    Oh my lol…I’m so sorry Jessica!!! I’m looking for vanilla powder! Does it matter if I just put vanilla extract or is it important to have it in powder form?

      You can use extract also. I prefer to use a non-alcohol based extract because sometimes I can taste the alcohol, but that may just be me!

    Hi Jessica! I got the cookbook and it’s awesome! The recipes have been fab! I just tried making this white chocolate but unfortunately the lakonta and cardamom separated after pouring into molds. So the bottom was sweetner and the top was the chocolate. I’m obviously doing something wrong. Can you help me trouble shoot?

      Oh shoot! I’ve seen that problem as well. I would try adding in more grass-fed collagen which acts as a binder between the cacao butter and Lakanto or let the cacao butter cool a bit first before adding the Lakanto.

    Yay! I tried both of things. I added a bit more collagen and cooled everything way down before mixing. It worked! Thank you!

    Will gelatin powder work in the place of collagen?

      They are two different things. It would be an experiment!
