Okay on to this tropical dream of a dessert!

Useful tip: Coconut oils has a loooong  shelf life, don’t believe in “the best before” date stamp and HOARD these babies when they go on sale.

Trust me, i grew up in the tropics, my mother made them old school style—freshly grated coconut churned for hours and turned into pure oil.  We never even have to refrigerate them and I never see them SPOIL EVERRRRRRR!

(Granted that you won’t leave it for 3 years out in the heat, but that’s me being conservative)

Alright. This one is a quickie bake.  about 20 minute tops– from   prepping to the whole baking. Makes about 10 muffins,

The sweetener I used was the existing bag of Now Erythritol  that I just wiped out this morning.

I forgot to mention that the co-star of this show was the old fashioned peanut butter that was very subtle and I believe, complemented the chocolate pretty well.

Another tip– be wary of the cocoa powder you use. I Trader Joe’s has a lower carb count. Some are just plain garbage.

Bake at  325 for 11 mins– I made a habit of under-baking them because of my toaster heats up well.

Lately I’ve been baking in my mini toaster.  Its been easier and quicker to clean.

The best part—- my husband who thinks Keto is weird… ate these babies lol!!!
