Low Carb Almond Joy Bonbons
(This post contains affiliate links, which provide me with a small compensation when you purchase your products through my links. Thank you for your support!)
These Low Carb Almond Joy Bonbons are little bite-sized balls of delight! A creamy coconut center filled with almonds and chocolate chips - all coated in a chocolate candy shell. This recipe is low carb, sugar free, dairy free, and a Trim Healthy Mama S Fuel.
Coconut and chocolate - what combination could be better? (OK, besides coffee and chocolate!)
I have mentioned before that I love easy desserts! So here, just in time for the Holidays, is an easy recipe that will get you out of the kitchen and spending time with your family!
If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you have probably run across my Sugar-Free Keto Sweetened Condensed Milk Recipe. If you are not familiar, this is a low carb, sugar free sweetened condensed milk that tastes BETTER than the real thing! Truly! I have had many people tell me that it tastes better than the sugar-filled variety!
I love that recipe, and it can be used for so many things! BUT . . . . . it is a calorie bomb! (I know, as a Trim Healthy Mama, we don’t count calories - but it still pays to be conscious of them!) So, enter . . . my 2 Ingredient Sweetened Condensed Milk, which is much lighter in calories.
And . . . it just so happens to be dairy free! This Sweetened Condensed Milk is made from coconut milk instead of heavy cream. The coconut milk lends an extra layer of coconut flavor to these Low Carb Almond Joy Bonbons.
When you see the ingredient list, you may think it looks a lot like my Almond Joy Cookie recipe! That is because . . . it does! I simply switched out the heavy cream condensed milk for the coconut condensed milk. And, you do not have to bake these! Score!
This recipe makes a bakers dozen (13 bonbons), but you may want to double the recipe (because it is always wise to have a healthy dessert on hand at this time of year)! These Low Carb Almond Joy Bonbons will go quickly at any party - and no-one will even know that they are sugar free and low carb!
I love to melt Lily’s Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips for the coating. However, if you do not have those (or they are not in your budget), you should be able to use chopped 85% dark chocolate in the same amounts.
If you want to add an extra special little touch, you can sprinkle more finely shredded unsweetened coconut on the top of the bonbons before the chocolate hardens.

Is it a special kind of condensed milk?
Yes, it is a homemade, low carb sugar free condensed milk. The recipes are linked in the post above. 🙂
I made the sweetened condensed coconut milk weeks ago and I FINALLY made these today!! They are AMAZING!! so soft and so delicious. I like them even more than your almond joy cookies (which are so so delicious!) thank you so much for this amazing recipe Sarah!!
This is my favorite dessert recipe now that I've been eating low carb/keto. I like to make them more similar to the almond joy candy bars and leave out the chocolate chip and sliced almonds. I will roll out the coconut balls and push a whole almond on top before I freeze them and then dip them in the melted chocolate. I recommend this recipe to everyone that tells me they're trying keto.
I'm so glad you like it, Bonnie!
