3 Ingredient Keto Chocolate Coconut Cups (Paleo, Vegan, Sugar Free)- An easy, homemade three ingredient healthy dessert or snack which is low carb, dairy free and gluten free. A guilt-free way to keep hunger at bay while satisfying the sweet tooth!
The addictively satisfying combination of chocolate and coconut without any sugar whatsoever- These keto cups (aka fat bombs or chocolate coconut cups) are your answer.
As a dark chocolate lover, these homemade 3 Ingredient keto chocolate coconut cups are my downfall. A guilt-free candy cup I can enjoy anytime? You bet. While I love me some bounty protein bars, homemade mound bars, and even some chocolate coconut brownies, sometimes I want something a little more satisfying and candy-like!
PS- While many refer to these as ‘fat bombs’, I think keto cups sound a little better…although they can be enjoyed by anyone!
It’s the best of both worlds, especially if you are a fan of flavors and textures- A delicious mix of dark, rich, and bitter chocolate coating. The coconut center is smooth, creamy, naturally sweet without being overpowering.
Health food stores and supermarkets are filled with healthy candy cups, but let’s face it- The price tag for a mere TWO cups cost the same as a jar of gourmet coconut butter or some quality baking chocolate.
Who knew that you could make your own healthy keto chocolate coconut cups using just three ingredients? You do now! Not only that, it literally takes less than five minutes to make and is so much cheaper than anything store bought.
With many people now trying to enjoy more snacks and desserts which are keto diet friendly and sugar free, these keto cups are your answer. They are also naturally paleo, vegan, gluten free and low carb!
These homemade 3 Ingredient keto chocolate coconut cups are fool-proof and require an easy, 5-step process–
- Make the two ingredient chocolate
- Pour into muffin liners or silicone cups
- Add in softened coconut butter
- Top with remaining chocolate
- Refrigerate until firm then enjoy!
How do you enjoy chocolate without any sugar or sugar substitute? You rely on the natural sweetness of the other key ingredient- Coconut butter!
Coconut butter is a magical ingredient. I’m not going to lie, I used to use my container of coconut butter to dictate a room’s temperature. If the coconut butter was in a solid state, clearly the weather was on the cooler side.
If the coconut butter was easily spreadable and creamy, then we knew either the heater was on or we were in the middle of summer.
I’m going to put this out there- These 3 Ingredient Keto Chocolate Coconut Cups are NOT super sweet whatsoever. You will be 100% relying on the coconut butter for any form of sweetness whatsoever. The crispy, chocolate coating is made of just two ingredients- cocoa powder and coconut oil.
Like coconut butter, coconut oil is just as magical. When paired with a range of ingredients, it can work as a binder, can make spreads super creamy or make chocolate extra satisfying.
Saying that, if you DO have a sweeter tooth and don’t follow a keto diet, you can easily make a few tweaks to add some sweetness, while keeping it completely sugar free.
Add a liquid sweetener to the chocolate coating
I’ve recently started dabbling in the use of stevia sweetened liquid sweeteners. While some have been incredibly bitter and metallic tasting, there have been some winners. This liquid stevia leaves no bitter aftertaste. It also only needed a few drops to provide a pleasurable amount of sweetness.
The other option is to add honey or maple syrup, but be sure to note the exact amounts specified in the recipe card. The best part is that you can adjust it to YOUR level of sweetness.
Use dietary friendly chocolate chips
My preferred chocolate for melting are these dairy free and allergen friendly chocolate chips. Not only do they taste good on their own, they melt beautifully. They are also the brand of chocolate chips non-strict Paleo followers tend to prefer.
For a completely sugar-free chocolate option, these stevia sweetened baking chips would be best. They don’t leave you with a bitter aftertaste, nor leave a gritty texture.
Use your favorite chocolate bar
If you have a preferred chocolate bar, feel free to use that! You’d be surprised that some non-specific baking chocolate bars actually do melt really well. I’ve tried chocolate recipes before using Green and Blacks Dark 85% chocolate bars and Lindt 70% Dark chocolate.
For those of you looking for a low carb, sugar-free and satisfying candy inspired snack, you’ve got your answer here. These homemade Keto Chocolate Coconut Cups will keep any sweet tooth satisfied, and need just 3 ingredients!

For the keto version
- Line a 18-count mini muffin tin with mini muffin liners and set aside.

- Moving quickly, coat the bottom and sides of the muffin liners with melted chocolate. Ensure a little is leftover to top with later. Place the chocolate coated muffin tins in the freezer to firm up.
