Healthy Coconut Oil Chocolate Frosting {THM Friendly, Sugar Free, Low Carb, Dairy Free}

Share This:

Healthy chocolate frosting – is there such a thing? Well yes, yes there is! What if I told you that you could eat spoonfuls of frosting for breakfast and not even feel guilty? What if I told you that you could eat chocolate frosting for breakfast and fire up your metabolism? Or eat frosting for breakfast and lose weight? Well, have a seat, because that is what I’m telling you!

I first heard of this idea several years ago from Lisa over on Thrive Style – (please check out her original post). I have modified the recipe a bit and made it more THM friendly, but the real credit definitely goes to her for suggesting such a lovely idea! She also has some beautiful things to say about coconut oil – the star ingredient in this recipe, so please check it out.

Coconut oil had the short end of the stick for a while, but now it is known to increase energy, increase your metabolism, and promote fat burning. With those claims, why WOULDN’T you want to eat frosting for breakfast?

Healthy Coconut Oil Chocolate Frosting {THM Friendly, Low Carb, Sugar Free, Dairy Free}

  • 2 Tablespoons SOLID coconut oil (you do not want melted – it won’t work)
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon THM Gentle Sweet
  • 1 “doonk” stevia extract (if you like things really sweet – otherwise omit)
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut flour (or 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter)
  • Dash vanilla
  • Pinch of mineral salt


  • Combine all ingredients and mix well with a hand mixer.
  • Note: It is a good idea to put your bowl in the freezer for a few minutes to insure that it is nice and cool. The coconut oil will melt if it gets too warm (and will not be “frosting-like”).

Use to frost whatever your heart desires (just make sure whatever you are frosting is cool, NOT warm, as that will cause the frosting to melt)! Or just eat it by the spoonful! (I may or may not have done this)
This morning I made the mini white cake from the THM cookbook, and used this frosting to frost it. The frosting alone doesn’t have very much protein, so if I were only eating the frosting I would pair it with a cup of collagen coffee or collagen tea.If you make this recipe with the peanut flour instead of peanut butter it would be a Deep S, and most of us (ok, me) need more Deep S in our lives!

This is very rich, and even though it doesn’t make much, I sometimes cannot eat it all at once. I just pop it in the refrigerator and eat a spoonful when I need something sweet!
