Keto Friendly Chocolate Chips

Why I Love These Keto Friendly, Low Carb Chocolate Chips

  • Affordable. Have you ever purchased sugar free chocolate chips at the grocery store? Theyre EXPENSIVE. Making them at home isn’t.
  • Easy. Mix, pour, cool, store. That’s all you have to do.
  • Sugar Free. No real sugar to be found in this recipe
  • Low Carb. 8 net carbs per serving. While these aren’t SUPER low carb, they still fit in your macros if you’re living a low carb lifestyle.
  • Delicious. Who needs the real thing? These sugar free chocolate chips are amazing in any low carb recipe.

So if you are living a low carb lifestyle, you know just how difficult it can be to find ket0o-friendly or sugar-free ingredients that won’t cost an arm and a leg. A simple Amazon search for keto or low carb chocolate chips and you’ll find ton’s of results, but almost all of them cost $8 or more for a single bag! I mean, a low carb lifestyle shouldn’t have to break the bank, right? That’s exactly why I came up with this amazing, two-ingredient and completely keto-friendly chocolate chips recipe!

The low cost for making these keto-friendly chocolate chips is just one of the many reasons why I love making them. Not only are they cheaper than store-bought, but they only take two ingredients to make! Believe it or not, two ingredients is all it takes to make yourself some deliciously low carb and sugar-free chocolate chips.

Not only are they 2 ingredient chocolate chips, but they can be made easily right in your microwave. No need to mess with a double boiler or any of that nonsense. Just a couple ingredients, a microwave-safe container, and a microwave and you’ve got yourself some delectable low carb chocolate chips in no time.

What Is Swerve?

Can you use Swerve on a keto diet? I love substituting Swerve for sugar in my keto recipes. Swerve is a low-carb sugar substitute that has about 5 carbs per serving. You can swap it out in place of sugar cup for cup in recipes. And, it has no aftertaste so it truly does not affect the taste of your favorite recipes.

Here is a great article from My Keto Kitchen talking about sweetener options for a low carb lifestyle

Is Chocolate Keto Friendly?

Yes! But you do have to do some research and be open to change. Most milk chocolate that we all love has tons of sugar and is high in carbs. For chocolate on a keto diet, look for unsweetened chocolate, cocoa nibs, and dark chocolate.

Do not buy Chocolate Chips with sweeteners with maltitol like the Hershey’s chips since it raises blood sugar. Dark chocolate should contain 70% of cocoa solids. One ounce of unsweetened chocolate is the lowest carb content of your chocolate options.

If you melt the chocolate down, you can add Swerve, and then add it to your favorite recipes for a depth of chocolate flavor.

How To Make Keto-Friendly Chocolate Chips

5. Take the container out of the microwave and mix the ingredients together. If the chocolate is still too solid, simply microwave it for another 30 seconds and mix again. Repeat until you have a smooth mixture, making sure not to over microwave it and burn the chocolate.

Tips And Tricks For Making Low Carb, Sugar Free Chocolate Chips

  • Only microwave the ingredients for 1 minute to start and in 30 second increments after that. It’s super important that you don’t burn the chocolate as that will ruin the taste and consistency of the chips.
  • If you don’t have a honeycomb silicone pot holder like I have, you can purchase one HERE. If you prefer to use a chocolate chip mold, you can use these silicon molds.
  • Make sure to taste the mixture before placing it into the mold. Feel free to add an additional teaspoon of powdered Swerve if the sweetness is not to your liking.
  • Make sure you really smash the mixture down into the molds. That way you don’t have any weird air pockets or missing sections in your chocolate chips.
  • Make sure to place down some wax paper before you pop the chips out of the mold. This will save you the trouble of having the clean your counter tops afterwards.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the chips out of the molds, place the mold back into the fridge and allow it to cool for a bit longer.
