My love of low carb cookies is no secret, and these Keto Chocolate Fudge Haystacks are right up there with the best of them! Primarily because they are no-bake, and therefore ready to eat in as little as five minutes! Also, they are intensely chocolatey, chewy and creamy at the same time, and they fall into the fat bomb category, so you can eat them anytime and not even feel bad about it! #allthewinning 🙌
This Keto Chocolate Fudge Haystacks recipe was born of my desperate desire for something sweet and chocolatey RIGHT NOW, coupled with my being too lazy and impatient to want to actually cook something – or wait for said something to be ready to eat. This pretty much describes my low carb life lately.
If you can relate, then this is your recipe my friends. #lazyketochocolateloversunite
The shredded coconut in these Keto Chocolate Fudge Haystacks makes them chewy and cookie-like, and the nuts add a pleasant crunch and earthy flavor. If you are allergic to nuts then you can certainly omit them, or if you have a specific nut preference, you can sub in your nut of choice.
If you’re a fan of fruit and nut bars, you can throw in a couple of dried cranberries or cherries (or ewww, raisins) but be mindful of the extra carbs if you do.
Mr. Hungry and I have been grabbing one of these for breakfast along with our coffee on busy mornings, and I’ve found that it easily keeps me satisfied until lunchtime! It makes a great after dinner treat too – or pretty much whenever you want a blissful few bites of creamy chocolate goodness!
My handy dandy cookie dough scooper is in storage in New Jersey right now, so I just used two spoons to form my haystacks. It’s much easier and faster if you do have a scoop though, so I’ll be bringing one back on my next trip to the States!
These Keto Chocolate Fudge Haystacks are everything you want in a low carb chocolate fix! Quick, easy, delicious, creamy AND crunchy, and they’ve got that sweet / salty thing going on if you like that sort of thing! Which I do. A LOT.
