Low Carb Chocolate Bars
Since chocolate is a natural low carb, low carb chocolate bars are becoming quite popular! In addition to being low carb, there are many dark chocolate health benefits. Therefore, some people are looking for easy ways to incorporate a healthy serving of low carb chocolate into their low carb diet.
Well – look not further! There are actually multiple brands of chocolate that make low carb chocolate bars!
Lily’s chocolate contain no added sugars. Therefore, one serving (1/2 a bar) of the Lily’s 70% Dark Chocolate – Salted Almond Bar equals 18g carbohydrates. However, it is a large bar of chocolate! So, to me, eating one-fourth of the bar is a serving size instead of eating half. In this way, you will only consume 9 g carbohydrates per serving.
I found her low carb chocolate bars to be both healthy and delicious. You can read my upcoming Lily’s Dark Chocolate review. Keep in mind that both almonds and cacao powder are naturally low carb. Nevertheless, they do have a few carbs.
Another one of the Lily’s low carb chocolate bars recommended is Lily’s – 70% Dark Chocolate Bar – Sea Salt. If you prefer one without salt, there is also a plain 70% Dark Chocolate Bar. The Lily’s website does not sell to the public, however you may be able to find some of her chocolate bars at a local store. Nevertheless, the Lily’s Chocolate Bar Collection is online.
ChocZero is another recommended brand of sugar-free low carb chocolate bars. Their bars are individually wrapped for better portion control. Each bar contains about 10g Fat, 15g Carbs, and 1 g Protein. Therefore, depending on your height, weight, and calorie needs you can either eat the entire bar or split it into 2 servings. I will likely opt for 2 servings. Currently, your ChocZero options include Dark Chocolate Almonds with Sea Salt and Milk Chocolate Hazelnuts.
Chocolove makes another delicious 70% Dark Chocolate Bar. It is sold in a convenient “mini” portion control size (1.3 ounces). However, this dark chocolate bar has some added sugar. But, it is comparable to the Lily’s brand of chocolate in total carbohydrate content. The entire palm-sized bar of chocolate contains 16 g Fat, 0 mg Cholesterol, 0 mg Sodium, 17 g carbs, 11 g of sugar, and 3 g Protein. Therefore, for me, it will be at least 2 servings. Then it will only be 8.5 g carbs and 5.5 g of sugar.
You can also use this low carb chocolate bar to make a cup of hot chocolate!
