6 Delicious Keto Chocolate Options for Low-Carb Diets
Let’s face it.
Even the most hardcore keto dieters want a piece of chocolate every now and then.
The problem? A typical 40g chocolate bar has 20g of sugar.
Besides being an obvious keto no-no, this also is just a general no-no for your health. The sugars in these bars are not keto-friendly sweeteners. The impact on your blood glucose levels when your body has to respond to that much sugar is scary. At best, you'll experience an energy crash or post-treat slump.
Not to worry, though. There are some options for keto-chocoholics. High-cacao dark chocolate is a great option for those on a low-carb diet. With a high fat content and low levels of carbs and sugar, here’s our list of the top six keto-friendly chocolate bars. Before you indulge, make sure to check the serving size!
Try Indulge Keto Chocolate
The best-tasting guilt-free cure to your keto chocolate cravings. Only 1g net carbs, zero added sugar or artificial sweeteners, and 2 delicious flavors.
We have a major sweet tooth, and on keto, a chocolate craving is tough to satisfy. Pure dark chocolate is decadent and delicious, but sometimes you want a sweeter, more indulgent version.
We couldn't find the perfect solution, so we created it.
Introducing Indulge Keto Chocolate
- a naturally sweetened dark chocolate candy infused with premium nut butter.
The silky smooth nut butter blend adds a delicious touch of high-quality fat to the chocolate, so it fits within your keto macros, too.
This bar from Lily’s Sweets might have more carbs (19g) than fat (17g) per serving, but it makes our list by having no added sugars. Lily's uses stevia and erythritol to add sweetness, which brings net carbs to 4g per serving.
Perfection may be hard to reach, but ChocoPerfection comes pretty close. Like Lily’s Sweets, these bars contain no added sugars. The 60% cocoa bars are sweetened with erythritol and chicory root fiber. With an astounding 14g of fiber, this ChocoPerfection bar lands you at only 2g net carbs per serving.
At 85% cacao, this Alter Eco bar is intense. It has double the amount of fat to carbs (22g to 11g, respectively). With 5g of fiber and 6g of sugar, it’ll calm the cravings of even the most devoted chocoholics. We also give it bonus points for using fair trade and organic cacao. Net carbs per serving is 6g.
With 22g of fat and only 12g of carbs per serving, this Lindt bar is a Keto-lover’s dream. And as an added bonus, it has more fiber (5g) than sugar (3g), so you're looking at 7g net carbs per serving. Lindt chocolatiers, take a bow.
Rounding out our list, this Endangered Species 88% cocoa bar contains 20g of fat and 17g of carbs (11g net carbs) per serving. Plus, it has a panther on the packaging, which is both adorable and terrifying. You can read the inside of the wrapper to learn more about panthers while satisfying your daily chocolate fix, and feel better knowing that your purchase supports conservation efforts.
You don't have to deprive yourself of chocolate if you're living the keto lifestyle. We have plenty more ways to get your chocolate fix with these recipes.
