Chocolate Squares Ingredients:
- 1 tbsp of XCT oil
- 10-15 drops of chocolate stevia
- 2 tbsps of chocolate bone broth protein
- Pinch of Himalayan sea salt.
Yield: Makes about 12 (2″ x 2″ squares)
**If you use the chocolate bone broth protein, it is already flavored with stevia and tastes amazing, so you don’t need to add in any additional stevia!
Chocolate Squares Instructions
- Melt the coconut oil over low heat and add in the cacao powder, sweetener, vanilla extract, nut butter and protein powder. Be sure to whisk well to remove any lumps from the cacao and make sure that it mixes in well!
- Pour into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper.
- Refrigerate until it is firm (coconut oil naturally hardens when refrigerated)
- Cut into squares or any bar size you like
Keep the squares in the refrigerator so they remain solid, but you can take a few out an hour before you eat them if you want them to be a little softer.
You can use any nut butter you prefer, such as almond butter, cashew butter or coconut almond butter. I don’t recommend peanut butter as it is high in inflammatory omega 6 fats and mycotoxins. If you do want to use peanut butter, I know the Maranatha brand uses mold-free peanuts.
For sweetener, these are quite good without any, but if you do want one, I like stevia the best as it is sugar free and has a great flavor when mixed with a slight dash of salt to take out any sort of bitter after taste.
If you want another option other than stevia, I like monk fruit as it is sugar-free as well. If you choose to use honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar, these will elevate your blood sugar and this will not be a ketogenic recipe.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a super easy to make and great tasting recipe that helps put your body into ketosis, improves your brain function and provides collagen proteins to support your skin, nails, joints and gut lining.
I enjoy making this with the XCT oil as it turns into ketones immediately whereas coconut oil takes time for the body to process and create ketones out of. I am a fan of getting an immediate influx of ketones and then having other fat sources to keep the ketone production occurring over time…which is what this recipe does.
Bone broth protein powder is loaded with collagen protein which is what are body uses to create strong and healthy skin, nails, joints and our intestinal lining. By using bone broth protein, we are helping to strengthen these areas of our body, allowing us to age more gracefully, prevent joint and muscle injuries and heal our gut.

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!

1) Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy right? Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this story…
2) Forget what you've read about 10-day lemonade cleanses, 7-day detoxes with green juices and Gwyneth's gruel. All you need to do, and this is perfect for Saturday or or anytime really, is a simple 1-day cleanse.
3) This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
4) I thought it was virtually impossible for a website to be able to tell me anything even a little bit insightful after only submitting my name and date of birth... I was wrong!
5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
