Easy to make low carb coconut/coconut oil chocolate “balls”

2 dl gram liquid virgin (non refined) coconut oil with taste of coconut

2 dl gram coconut flakes

1/2 dl crushed hazelnuts

1/2 dl chopped almonds

2 tablespoon cacao

2 tbs raw cacao nibs

A pinch of vanilla extract/powder (1 kryddmått vaniljpulver)

A pinch ground cardamum (1 kryddmått kardemumma, mald)

Some stevia (6-8 droops) or other sweetener such as Erythritol, after taste

A pinch or more of sea salt (preferably flakes) to enhance the chocolate taste

& 2 tsp of e.g. maca root powder if you have some, for adrenal gland support

Blend all the ingredients, the dry first then the liquid coconut oil, then  taste to see if you need any more stevia or possibly some sukrin (erythriol). The mix should be a little bit like porridge.. cover a tray with a baking paper, powder this with some ground coconut and spread out the mixture and flatten it so that it is roughly 1 to 1.5 cm high, powder with coconut again. Make some marks with a knife how large the pieces should be, making it easier to divide them later. Put in the fridge or your ice covered balcony and let stale. When it has hardened crack into pieces and put in a jar. Keep  refrigerated mainly.

You can also choose to put the bole with mixed ingredients in the fridge 20 minutes to then roll the solid “dough” into balls and cover them in ground coconut. -Rounder but obviously more work.

At the moment I buy my coconut oil here , when in Sweden.
