Double Chocolate Haystacks (keto, paleo, low-carb + dairy-free)

Double Chocolate Haystacks with NOW Foods #keto #lowcarb #highfat #theketodietSink your teeth into these chocolatey, fat-filled treats. Perfect for increasing your fat on the ketogenic diet. Made with my favorite keto-friendly NOW Foods ingredients.

There’s so much simplicity in this recipe. And, simplicity is making me REALLY happy right now.

It’s been one heck of a beginning to summer for us.

In the last 3 months, we’ve come home from the keto diet book tour, renovated a 40-foot RV, prepared the house for sale, posted the house for sale, and are now cruising around Canada creating new memories in our soon-to-be full-time house. Oh, and did I mention we’re going on tour again in a couple of weeks?

Like I said, insane. All self-inflicted, but hectic nonetheless.

So, I’m totally diggin’ the easy recipes these days. You know, the ones where you throw everything in a bowl, hope for the best, and dig in regardless? I promise I’ll only ever share the winning ones, not the slop-looking yucky ones.

I’ve been preparing these keto no-bake cookies during all of the crazy months, so I figured it was about time I share the official recipe with you.

I made these keto haystack cookies with a couple of my favorite NOW Foods products. The thing I like about sharing NOW Foods products with you all is that many of you can actually get them. They’re available in your local health food store, likely a couple of grocery stores in your area, making recipes like this super accessible for all.

I used…

Ellyndale Organic Coconut Oil
If you like strong coconut flavor in your coconut oil, you’ll want to try this oil! Otherwise, the NOW Foods Coconut Oil may be better for you.

NOW Foods Cacao Powder
I like this cacao powder because it’s sun dried and not roasted, so you can expect a pure chocolate flavor as opposed to cocoa powder.

NOW Foods Erythritol
About 70% as sweet as sugar. It’s my favorite sugar substitute for people that say that they don’t enjoy stevia. If you’re sensitive to corn, you may be sensitive to erythritol. In this case, you could use xylitol, monk fruit, or stevia if you don’t hate it!

NOW Foods Cacao Nibs
Cacao nibs are a fun way of adding chocolate chip-like texture to any recipe. With cacao nibs, you get the benefits of chocolate from its purest form–raw cacao.

One of my favorite fat bombs right now! And, a little bit of a different approach than I normally take with a fat bomb recipe. Drizzle with your favorite chocolate for added chocolate awesomeness. Macros: 78% fat, 19% carbs, 4% protein

Once you have all of the dry ingredients in the bowl, add the oil…

And stir to combine. The batter can look like this, or a little wetter. The wetter the batter, the more fudge-like the haystacks will be.

If you want to get really crazy, you could melt some chocolate and add it during this last step. It’ll make these keto haystacks SO chocolatey!

  1. Most low carb desserts are not worth making. These are different. Very yummy, especially if you like dark chocolate! I used unsweetened TOASTED coconut which made it like a true haystack. Try it, you’ll like it!

    • Sounds delicious, Nancy! Thank you so much for the suggestion!

  2. Made them tonight for a Sunday night treat, Super good and a lot more taste and substance that the non keto version. I remember my grandma making haystacks as a kid, it a staple treat on the Canadian prairies along with that super sickly sweet peanut butter and small marshmallow slice. Keep up the good work Leanne (;

  3. Trader Joe’s also carries Unsweetened Coconut flakes.

  4. Just wondering….in the beginning it says bake time 30 mins., but I see no bake time. Are they just put in the freezer and that is it or are they actually baked?

  5. I’ve made these several times and absolutely love them! But I think I am sensitive to the erythritol. I normally use stevia as my sweetener in other recipes and was wondering how much to use in this one. Right now I only have liquid stevia and I don’t mind if the haystacks are a little less sweet. This is my go to sweet spot recipe. It’s terrific!!

    • Hi Mary! The typical conversion is about 1/8tsp of liquid stevia for every 1Tbsp of Erythritol.

  6. I have made these twice. The first time I thought they reminded me a little of nestle crunch bars so the next time I flattened them out like a bark and then once solidified broke up in pieces. These are so easy and so deliscious!

  7. Just bought your book. On day 5 and in ketosis. Have done Atkins for years but found that the last 8 months I’ve been gaining and not sticking to it because for the last 6 months on Atkins I didn’t lose anything. Anxious to try something new with my boyfriend’s menu and mine. So far so good

    • Thanks for getting my book, Diane! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it so far :)

  8. Just made them. Licked the bowl. Didn’t have unsweetened coconut flakes (used sweetened ones + its hard to find unsweetened coconut flakes other than online) so I used less sugar. Came out so good.
