Easy Almond Joys
I updated my Keto Shopping Guide and Supplement List with COUPON CODES! I also included what hair products I use since I get asked that all the time.
I often get asked where I get certain products. And you may have seen me mention this before, but we do not have advertisements on my blog. I get approached all the time to have advertisements on my website and I get offered thousands of dollars a month for it, but you know what? I tried it for a few days and I was horrified to see “healthy” chips and things that I would never recommend for people to eat. I found it so intrusive and it covered up the message I want you to leave my website with.
Also, I only list things I approve of. I don’t support things like the monthly delivery boxes, etc since they often have junk ingredients, flax, etc.
Why am I expressing this? Instead of doing advertisements, Craig and I researched and found healthy foods and products to keep you in ketosis and heal your body from the inside out. Every company we endorse (such as ButcherBox, BeautyCounter) are companies that really care about your health and not only that, they are super kind business owners that we love to support!
By purchasing through my Keto Shopping Guide, you help this blog with free information and recipes going! I’ll never add those annoying pop-ups and advertising! Instead, I hope you consider my shopping guide!

I think you are right on with your thoughts on this. I only wish I had known about this when my kids were young! I have been low carbing for quite a few years now, and I have definitely noticed that I don’t get near as many colds etc. as I used to and if I do get one, it doesn’t last near as long or make me feel near as bad. I think it helps greatly!!!
It is seriously disturbing what sugar can do!
I’m LOVING this recipe! Great info too! Thanks!
hmm….YES YUM haha im gnna try, but with carob powder i dont have cocoa
These look wonderful. Bought my coconut flour and plan to make them today.
I always find that when I indulge in too much sugar, I end up with sore glands in my throat and feeling like I’m about to get a cold. I am low-energy and congested. I try to remind myself that I will feel terrible if I have too much sugar!
Very similar to the chocolate delight I make all the time… I like the addition of the coconut flour! Thanks 🙂
Maria! Those are amazing (I made them with crunchy natural peanut butter)!!! Dangerously good!
I made some where I pushed a macadamia nut in the middle before putting in the freezer! So good for a quick fix!
Thank you France! 🙂
These look awesome! How many per serving? Just 1/4 of however many it makes? I only have bigger ice cube trays….
Yes, if you use larger trays, the serving is 1/4 of whatever it comes out to. 🙂
Hi, I tried to go to the page you got that diagram from and it said to let you know that the link did not get anywhere. Easy Almond Joys and HALLOWEEN IMMUNE HEALTH diagram. I was trying to give credit where credit is due. I also want to know how to link to your blog from mine. Don’t know how to ask other than here. Thanks I just found this this morning. I have spent over an hour on it reading previous posts.
Hmm, they must have removed it. Just put this link on your post to link back to this post. 🙂
I just made this in like five seconds& it’s AMAZING. Better than that other crap.. You are an angel!
Thank you! 🙂
Maria … i was wondering….. is it possible to make almond joys with fresh shredded coconut ? i have a whole coconut i have been trying to decide what to do with.
i was wondering if you can make candy with it…. like
chocolate coconut haystacks … or mounds bars. … or maybe even cutting the fresh coconut into small
pieces and coating them with chocolate.
i dont know anything about cooking or how fresh coconut would behave when making any candy with it.
what do you think ?
Not sure. Worth a try. (note, it does have about 14g carbs per cup) 🙂
thanks Maria …. i’m gonna try it. I only have what i call a day off… once a week and thats when i try things like this. normally during the week i would never do it but one day weekly i allow myself anything i want. of course no grains and no sugar but i do indulge in more carbs than usual. then…. the next day after the day off… i fast for 24 hours. that gets me right back on track. lol
i do enjoy overfeeding myself on protein and carbs but i dont do it to real excess. i have to say that on those overfeeding days….. i feel even better than i do on my usual days of limited protein and carb and very heavy veg meals. not sure why that is but i really love it. lol
i have lost alot of weight doing this and the fasting really makes me feel good as well.
so… i’ll give the fresh coconut a try and make sure i dont get carried away with eating too many treats
if it comes out well. but…. who knows. lol
there is always the 24 hour fast that starts the following morning to set things right again.
These are the bomb! I’ve really been getting into making my own version of Larabars lately but had been missing the chocolate Gu (I used blended bananas on Saturday – did the trick but not as satisfying!) I happened upon Pumpkin-Shaped Mini Ice Cube Trays yesterday! So pumpkin Almond Joys they will be! Thanks for a great and easy recipe.
They are delicious!! I put one teaspoon Xylitol as I haven’t Stevia. My husband liked them, too.
I made these and they are super easy. A bit too chocolatey for me tho. Next batch I used 2 teaspoons of cocoa, and to me they tasted better and less bitter. Wonderful candy. Thanks!
Your chocolate almond joys are wonderful!Thanks
what can I use if I don’t have coconut butter?
There’s no coconut butter in the recipe. Only coconut oil and coconut flour.
Made for Valentine’s Day…easy and very good.
Ahh I love these simple recipes! Post more of these.
