    Hi Sadie: Heard you on Jimmy Moore’s Low Carb Conversations today & I just had to check out the delicious goody recipes you have on your website / I found immediately a recipe I want to make in my truck…the Chocolate-Mint Power Balls / I’m a Ketonian and the only ingredient in your recipe I can’t have is HONEY. So I will substitute SWERVE Confectioners Sugar Replacement and use 2 TBSP’s since SWEREVE measures like sugar / As a truck driver I don’t have readily accessible access to fresh mint so I’m going to search out a pure, natural mint flavoring extract that I can use as a substitute / Thought you would like to know that a slight modification of your Paleo recipe now makes the Chocolate-Mint Power Balls a Keto friendly treat / I will report back in the future to let you know about the success of making your recipe and the macro nutrient content per serving / Healthy regards, Sadie, Chuck

      Hi Chuck! Wow, what a honor! I am so glad you would like to use this recipe at your food truck! It is so good to know these can be made Keto-friendly. I am sure the mint extract and Swerve would work really well. If the Swerve is solid form though, you may need to add a little more liquid to the recipe, as honey does. Please tell me how it goes, and send me a pic of the treats at your food truck 🙂 Enjoy!!
