Chocolate Mint Cream Cheese Patties
11/13/18 UPDATE: I realized I mistakenly added this recipe and it is NOT low carb. I apologize to my readers since I always try to scan the recipe to make sure the net carbs are indeed very low.
To make this low carb, you can simply substitute the powdered sugar with low carb/keto friendly powdered Erythritol. Erythritol is known for being about 70% as sweet as regular sugar, has 0 net carbs and you can easily increase the amount in the recipe if it needs to be a little sweeter. Erythritol is one of the most popular low carb and keto sugar substitutes.
Instead of using regular chocolate chips, you can swap those out with low carb/keto friendly chocolate chips sweetened with Stevia. The most popular keto friendly chocolate chips are Lily’s Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Baking Chips.
Instead, you could try these yummy low carb coconut grasshopper bars by Whole New Mom.
