Ingredients

  • Pecan nuts halves, 2¼ cup (234 g)
  • Salted Butter, 2 tablespoon (30 g)
  • Chocolate, dark, 70-85%, 1 cup (200 g)
  • Coconut Oil, 1 Tbsp (14 g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F/150°C.

  1. Hi, Kdpretti. No, you don’t have to use the Stevia. You absolutely can have this instead of the other snacks, but the portion size would be 1/16 of the recipe (about 3 tablespoons). In addition to what already appears as options in your menus, any of these can be used as a snack:

  2. do you have to use the stevia? I love dark chocolate and don’t need it sweetened? Also, can i have this for a snack instead of brussel sprouts or kale chips? those are the only two that show up on my meal plan.

  3. I’m a newbie. Question when I change out the foods that you have listed on my menu do I have to try and keep up with carbs and fats and proteins or as long as I chnage out things you recommend I’m good like not chnage out an ingredient but an actual whole meal? Because everything on day one menu I didn’t like so I had to change every meal I picked from the list of meals you had under the pencil. So am I still in my numbers or do I have to re figure if I have a enough fats and carbs and proteins for that day?
