How come I was able to achieve zero added sugar or any other type of sweetener in a sweet dessert? This is how:
- I used raising to make it sweet enough without making it too sweet.
- I also used cranberries to add a special sweet and sour touch on top of the raisins.
- And I’ve used a few coffee beans to add a subtle coffee flavor that balances both berries and raisins (skip this in case you doin’t consume caffeine).

Tips for making delicious chocolate
- Enjoy making homemade chocolate – When it comes to homemade chocolate, the quantities aren’t that strict. Keep this in mind and enjoy the process of making your own chocolate. Do this and you will most likely end up with wonderful delicious chocolate.
- In case you don’t have a blender – I used a blender to pulse raisins and coffee beans together, but this step is not mandatory. You can simply use a knife to cut the raisins and use instant coffee instead of coffee beans.
- Instead of coffee beans – You can successfully use one 1-2 tsp instant coffee instead of plain coffee beans and the taste should not change much. Another option would be to skip using coffee altogether, especially if you don’t take caffeine.
- Instead of cranberries – Blueberries and raspberries come to my mind as a simple alternative to cranberries. As a rule, any type of berries will work just fine as long as they have a small size. Berries that are bigger in size could break down this rather delicate chocolate.
- How about using frozen berries? – Frozen berries are perfectly ok, just make sure to let them defrost prior to using, and to remove all excess water.
- How to store keto chocolate – This chocolate tends to melt in about 20-30 minutes at room temperature. If you want to take it out of the house as a city-snack, try using half the coconut oil I used or add a bit more cacao mass.
