Mayan Dream Keto Chocolate Truffles

Mayan Drem Chcocolate Truffles By The Nourished CavemanHot and Smokey Keto Chocolate Truffles

Happy Valentine’s day, have some keto chocolate truffles!

Today I would like to share with you a truffle recipe that will be included in my  fat bomb book.


These are fat bombs but also delicious truffles in their own right.

For this  recipe I got inspired by the cacao concoctions of Tulum, home of the ancient Maya, who used to sometimes mix hot chilis into their chocolate.

Also being Valentine’s day in 2 days, I was hoping to dedicate them to all lovers in the world…hoping their love keeps a bit of spice even through the years.

      Its a sweetener made with erythritol, which is a sugar alcohol.

    Can I make this dairy free using coconut milk or cream?

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      I would say….YES! Make sure it’s thick cream though!!

  3. Tara says:

    This looks awesome! I will make them this week. I have long since learned that in order to stay keto, I have to have just a little sweet during the day. I am lucky that the natural sweeteners don’t knock me out of ketosis. Thanks for sharing!

    Did you shape them into hearts by hand or use a mould?
