With delicious sugar free chocolate and perfectly sweetened sugar free coconut flakes, what is not to like about this candy. It tastes wonderful and provides a very unique texture and taste when compared with other keto chocolate candy recipes. Then too, it is loaded with beneficial ketogenic ingredients. So, let’s get to the keto mounds bar ingredients.
The coconut syrup is one of the homemade mounds bar ingredients used to make this keto mounds bar recipe. It includes monk fruit, butter, milk, and syrup.
- Monk Fruit – This one of the mounds bar ingredients is a sugar substitute used to make the syrup needed for the candy.
- Butter – Unsalted butter is used. Salted butter may give the candy an unwanted salty flavor.
- Milk – Since this is a keto coconut candy recipe, a thick and creamy canned coconut milk is used instead of a heavy cream. If you have never used canned coconut milk before, it is not the same thing as a carton of coconut milk that you would pour over cereal.
- Syrup – A sugar free pancake syrup is another one of the mounds bar ingredients added to give the filling for this keto mounds bar recipe a syrupy sweet taste.
The mounds bar ingredients used to make the filling is basically a mixture of coconut flakes, coconut oil, and the coconut syrup.
- Coconut Flakes – After measuring the needed amount of coconut flakes, gently grind them in a food processor of some sort. I use a simple coffee grinder for this. Sweetened coconut flakes are extremely sweet. Therefore, unsweetened coconut flakes are used in this recipes. They are usually place right next to each other at the store. So, be careful to choose the correct one.
- Coconut Oil – A liquid virgin ketogenic coconut oil is ideal for this. If your house is cool or cold, you may have to warm the coconut oil and some of the ingredients if they are too cold to get the oil mixed into the recipe well.
- Coconut Syrup – After cooking the syrup, I add the coconut flakes and oil directly to the pot. Once combined, stuff the mounds bar ingredients into a small parchment paper lined rectangular shaped mold.
The chocolate coating is one of the mounds bar ingredients for this keto coconut candy recipe. It includes chocolate chips and coconut oil.
- Chocolate Chips – You can use sugar free dark chocolate chips or sugar free milk chocolate chips. The dark chocolate chips are delicious but will have a slightly more bitter taste. While the milk chocolate will be a little sweeter in taste.
- Coconut Oil – The coconut oil is really optional at this point. It helps the chocolate chips melt faster and stretches the chocolate somewhat as well. However, since this is a keto coconut candy recipe, I would definitely add the ketogenic coconut oil to the chocolate.
