The Chocolate

When it comes to chocolate quality really matters. I always go for the organic products when I can and buy in bulk so it works out cheaper. The best one I found and use all the time is this cacao powder it is organic and raw. A great healthy ingredient to add to cakes, treats and desserts. Try these chocolate Keto puddings as another treat.

What’s the difference between cacao and cocoa?

Cacao is the raw, unprocessed form of cocoa. Cocoa powder is made by roasting the cacao beans, which reduces the amount of antioxidants they contain. Some people prefer the taste of cocoa powder because it has a more chocolatey flavour, but cacao beans have a more complex and intense flavour.

The terms “cocoa” and “cacao” are often used interchangeably, but they actually refer to different things. Cocoa is the dried, roasted bean that is used to make chocolate. Cacao is the cocoa fruit before it has been dried and roasted. So, cacao refers to the whole food, while cocoa refers to the processed product (chocolate).

The Keto Flours

The flour for this recipe is Almond Flour (basically ground almonds). When it comes to buying keto ingredients always bulk buy as it works a lot cheaper! I get my Almond Flour from BuyWholeFoodsOnline which are also on Amazon which is great for fast delivery.

You can mix it up a bit and use either coconut flour or hazelnut flour to give it a unique taste.

The Sweetener

You’ve got a few options to go from. There is Xylitol. If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious sugar-free sweetener, look no further than xylitol! Made from 100% xylitol, this natural sweetener is perfect for promoting healthy teeth and has nearly half the calories of sugar. Plus, it has a low glycaemic index so it won’t spike your blood sugar levels.

The second is  Erythritol. Make sure it is powdered Erythritol and not granulated otherwise you will have to blend it yourself in a blender. This is great when you want to do icing on a keto cake.

The third is powdered Stevia. You need to use less than what you would do normally so gradually add it to your mixture and taste it. I usually add about 2 tbsps to this recipe.


The topping I use in this recipe are Walnuts but you can easily change it to hazelnuts or even peanuts if walnuts are not to your liking. Whatever tickles your fancy! Try my Keto Ginger Brownies topped with chocolate!
