These Keto Homemade Almond Joy Candy Bars are sure to satisfy your deepest cravings for a chocolate bar while staying in ketosis!


  • 1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Swerve Confectioners
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia glycerite
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 6 oz (170 g) coconut flakes (about 2 3/4 cups)
  • 16 almonds
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) 90% dark chocolate


  1. Add the cream, butter, Swerve Confectioners, stevia glycerite, and salt to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then turn the heat down and simmer until thickened, about 10 to 12 minutes whisking occasionally. Stir in the vanilla.
  2. Add the coconut flakes to the bowl of a food processor. With the motor running, drizzle the cream mixture into the coconut. Process until it comes together like a chunky dough.
  3. Line a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and press the coconut mixture into the bottom of the pan, evening it out with a metal spatula.
  4. Evenly space out the almonds so that there will be 2 almonds per bar when you cut it cross-wise into 8 equal pieces, lightly pressing them into the top of the coconut.
  5. Transfer to the fridge to chill, about 1 hour.
  6. Cut the candy cross-wise into 8 bars.
  7. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or microwave and dip each candy bar in it. Transfer to a wire rack so the chocolate can set and any excess chocolate can drip off.
  8. Let the chocolate set before serving. Store covered in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 weeks.


These candy bars are big and with just 4g net carbs per bar, they’re easy to fit into your meal plan. They can be used as a small meal on-the-go, or cut them in half and enjoy them as a snack.
