#2 Keto Chocolate Candy Bar
Sometimes you just want a simple bar of chocolate. Although there are sugar-free chocolate bars on the market, keto chocolates are made up of only five ingredients and contain natural food ingredients. It’s also vegan and paleo-friendly.
A healthy, low sugar, and low carb chocolate bar? Doesn’t that sound like an oxymoron?
For all of you chocolate lovers, here’s some good news: Chocolate isn’t bad for you. These extra ingredients added to chocolate (soy lecithin, emulsifier, artificial flavors and sugar) negatively impact your health.

A Word On Sweeteners
One of the most important decisions to make when making keto candy is figuring out what type of sweetener you’re going to use. There are many sugar-free sweeteners out there, but which one should you choose? Monk fruit and stevia are ideal, both are natural sweeteners obtained from real food sources (not laboratory ones).
Another option is a sugar alcohol. While not necessarily harmful, many people report digestive problems and some may even raise their blood sugar levels. So if you prefer sugar alcohol, stick with erythritol. Sugar alcohols such as maltitol and xylitol can be difficult to digest.
