I have to admit, that I still like something sweet after dinner. It doesn’t have to be much, just a little bite or two is satisfying. I’ve tried lots of different fat bomb recipes and have liked most of them. Since I started keto, I’ve had lots of people ask if I have tried Lily’s Chocolate Chips. Up until yesterday, I had not. Hello, amazing! They are sugar-free, Non-GMO, vegan, gluten free, and fair trade. They are also low in carbs with one serving being only two net carbs, and they taste great. Since my days are hectic, I wanted to create an easy recipe that would satisfy my sweet craving. I love coconut and chocolate and thought homemade chocolate haystacks would be the perfect solution. Gracious, I was right! They turned out so delicious!
Now, where do you find Lily’s Chocolate Chips? I haven’t found anywhere locally that sells Lily’s Chocolate Chips, so I ordered mine online. I’ve heard that Whole Foods, Sprouts, and Fresh Market carries them. They aren’t cheap, but are worth it to me! Here are two options, if you can’t find any at your local store. Amazon is my first go to resource for most everything. You can find Lily’s Chips here. Also, as I mentioned in my post, 10 Easy Ways to Eat Keto on a Budget, Vitacost is a great resource for Keto and healthy living related items.

- Add 1/2 a bag of Lily's Chocolate Chips and butter in a double boiler and stir until completely melted.
