via; Trina


2 cups almond flour
1 cup ground flax seed meal
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
3 scoops of chocolate Whey Protein powder - I used (MRM Whey Protein powder)
½ cup of xylitol (or ¾ tsp pure powder stevia)
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup butter
3 squares unsweetened chocolate
½ tsp pure vanilla

**Optional Raspberry Filling** 

1/2 cup raspberries
2 Tbsp coconut flour
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp Natures Hollow Maple Syrup
1 tsp vanilla
4 drops of vanilla sweetleaf stevia drops

Chocolate Topping
4 squares unsweetened chocolate
2 tbsp of coconut oil
1 tbsp of organic butter
¼ cup of xylitol (or ¼ tsp of pure liquid stevia)

Place almonds meal, flax meal, shredded coconut,  Protein powder and xylitol (stevia) in a food processor.
Pulse until ground into meal
In a double boiler (I used a bowl in the microwave) melt coconut oil, butter and 3 squares of unsweetened chocolate.
Once melted add vanilla to melted chocolate/coconut mixture.
Mix liquid chocolate with dry ingredients in a bowl until turns into a paste
Press mixture into an 8 x 8 glass baking dish. (I used a metal 9x9 pan with parchment paper on the bottom coming up over the sides to make it easy to get out after)
Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, until mixture hardens.

For raspberry filling;
Combine all ingredients in food processor until  smooth.
Using a spatula spread raspberry mixture over base then refrigerate while you make the chocolate topping.

For chocolate topping;
In a double boiler or microwave, heat butter and coconut oil until liquid.
Add xylitol (stevia) and heat and stir until dissolved
Add 4 squares of unsweetened chocolate.  Stir until melted.

Pour melted chocolate over pressed mixture in dish.

Return to refrigerator for at least until chocolate hardens.
Remove from refrigerator, cut into bars and serve.
(If chocolate cracks when cutting, let soften for 10 minutes first)
Keep refrigerated or frozen.  These freeze well.

I cut it into 36 pcs. each pc comes out to
1/4 g sugar / 10 g carbs / 2 fiber / 4 protein


  1. whats the calorie content per bar? 1/36 bars?
    I still like to take calories into account :)
    Thanks! I want to know just in case i may want to make some too!

  2. Ashley - you know I never count calories - it was too hard so I didn't even try. :-)

  3. Oh wow... I even have Dr. Lerner's books and never saw that... I guess I need to check that site out more often. Thanks for posting!

  4. Hey did you eat these at the beginning while you were losing? I'm afraid it might set my sweet tooth off??

    1. Crystal - I only got this recipe a couple months ago. They are awesome.

    2. I must give them a try! Where do you get your MRM whey powder? I don't think I've been able to find it.

    3. I use MRM because it is Much cheaper and its sweetened with stevia. I buy it at Sprouts but also found it at Ralphs.

  5. these look yummy and congrats to you for doing so well with your new lifestyle!

  6. I have to make these! Do you use the 1/2 cup of xylitol or the 3/4 tsp stevia?

  7. Hey Rosalie! Don't know if you'll see this or not because of the dates but, did you use a 13x9 pan in the picture above? Thus doubling the recipe? Is the count for the 9x9 pan 36 pieces? They would be pretty small I'm thinking. I'm such a visual person. Hope you see this!
    Thank you!

    1. Yes I actually used a big cake pan, they are just a bit thinner and last longer and I don't feel guilty eating 2 at once. :-)

  8. OMG Rosalie,

    These are spectacular! I made without the raspberry layer but still so good. Freezing them in singular baggies and hoping they last a week!!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
