These crunchy keto chocolate bars kind of remind me of the Toblerone bars I used to have. They are such a nice treat to have after dinner. Plus, they’re super easy to prepare and you will only need three ingredients.
Half a bar has a total of only 3.5 grams of net carbs.
The ingredients for these crunchy keto chocolate bars
Keto dark chocolate: When choosing chocolate, I like to use pure, at least 70% cacao dark chocolate because the darker the cacao content, the higher anti-oxidants. Also, I want the first ingredient in the list to be chocolate and not a sweetener. My favorite keto chocolate to use is the one from Funky Fat Choc. I love this brand so much because it makes chocolate with clean ingredients that are healthy and taste delicious. (Get 10% off your order when you buy from them with code “EVY”) This brand is only available in Europe.
If you’re living in the US, I’d recommend the 70% dark chocolate from Lily’s when it comes down to clean ingredients.
Pork rinds: To create a crunch in these chocolate bars, I used pork rinds which I turned into crumbs in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can put them in a ziplock bag and hit them with a rolling pin to turn them into crumbs. And if you want to skip this process altogether, you can use pre-made pork crumbs.
The almond butter: When choosing a nut butter, always check the ingredient list to make sure the only ingredient is the specific nut. For almond butter, only almonds should be listed in the ingredient list. Nothing more. You’ll often find nut butter with added oils like sunflower oil, canola oil, palm oil or soybean oil, and even sugar. You’ll want to avoid these since they can cause inflammation in the body or spike your blood sugar.

How do I store these crunchy keto chocolate bars?
It’s best to store them in a glass container in the fridge. They’ll last up to 2 weeks.
What is a double boiler?
A double boiler also called ‘Bain-Marie’ is a large pot filled with water, heated on the stove, with a smaller pot inserted in the water in which you’ll add the chocolate to melt. This prevents the chocolate from burning.
