Low Carb Chocolate Bark and Chocolate PB Bark

I don't remember where I got this recipe, maybe from the Atkins site but I make these all the time when I have a chocolate craving(like today).  Also coconut oil is very good for you and is a great healthy fat/oil to use when cooking.  I saved all the little plastic things from the Atkins Peanut Butter cups.  They work great for these.  1 "cup" is 1 serving.

Chocolate Bark
1/4 cup coconut oil, extra virgin and unrefined
1 Tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
6-8 drops of liquid stevia or to taste

Melt coconut oil in microwave.  Add cocoa powder and stevia.  Mix until combined.  Pour on to wax paper.  Freeze until hard.  Remove and brake/cut into 4 servings put in zip lock bag and put back in freezer.  They need to stay frozen.  Just remove from bag and enjoy.  You can also use candy molds or small muffin silicone bake ware.

Atkins: All Phases

For Peanut Butter ones just add 1 Tbsp of peanut butter or any nut butter of your choice and melt with oil.  Mix until combined and then add cocoa powder and stevia. ( I used almond butter as my son has an allergy to peanuts and so I don't have any peanut butter)

Atkins: Phase 2 and up


  1. Hi! Congrats on such a great weight loss! Why is this for only phase 2 and up? I thought we can add nuts after induction?

  2. Phase 2 is after induction phase. You can also add nuts if you are doing extended induction(after the first 2 weeks).
