Is Chocolate Keto?
Yes, chocolate is keto…as long as you get the right kind. You can’t just pick up any old bar of chocolate or bag of chocolate chips. Most of them as added sugars and carbohydrates. You need to look for sugar-free chocolate and chocolate chips. Luckily, these companies are becoming more and more popular and readily available as the keto diet grows in popularity.
If all else fails and you can’t located sugar-free chocolate, then use baker’s chocolate. Baker’s chocolate can be found in the baking aisle of the grocery store. It is 100% unsweetened chocolate and doesn’t contain any added sugars.
Don’t let melting chocolate intimidate you. There are two easy methods you can use to melt chocolate depending on your equipment and preferance. You can use my personal favorite, the microwave, or you can use the double boiler method.
To melt chocoalte in the microwave, add you chocolate to a glass bowl. Pop the chocolate into the microwave and heat at full power at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted.
If you don’t want to use a microwave, you can melt the chocolate on the stove top using the double boiler method. Simply place a saucepan containing 1 to 2 cups of water on the burner. Heat on high until boiling. Then place a non-plastic bowl on top of the saucepan. Make sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the boiling water. Put the chocolate in the bowl and stir while the steam below the bowl melts the chocolate.
