Fast and Easy Coffee Cubes

Keto Recipes > Breakfast

The other day I was running late in the morning and didn’t have time to make anything. It really made me re-think what I need to do in emergency situations, so I started to experiment. I like eating something sweet in the morning, so I threw some stuff together. I guessed pretty well because what came out was a rewarding coffee cube!

You can add this to your coffee when you’re on the run, or even if you’re not. The MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides in the coconut oil) will keep you full and give you energy for hours to come. It’s packed with necessary saturated fats and linoleic acids, and can also be used in intermittent fasting – filling you up but not pulling you out of ketosis. It’s a win-win all around!

The Preparation

  • tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 square unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 drops EZSweets
  • 1 small plastic cup

The Execution

1. Grab a microwave safe container (preferably small – I used a plastic cup) and toss in the square of unsweetened chocolate inside.

Unsweetened chocolate square.

2. Add 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil and then add a heaped tablespoon of peanut butter. I used Peter Pan peanut butter because that’s all that was in the store. I prefer to use Skippy’s All Natural Creamy Peanut Butter.

Kick ass peanut butter

3. Add 3 drops of EZSweets, or if you want to you can use a packet of Splenda. If you use the Splenda, make sure you add one extra carb to the total.

Sweeten things up

4. Nuke it in the microwave for 1 minute (long awaiting the glory).

Microwave for 1 minute.

5. Finally done! Stir it up so it’s a nice liquid consistency.

Stir it up.

6. Pour the mixture out into small plastic cup.

Syrupy goodness!

7. To the freezer! I make a lot of them ahead of time just in case I am running late – I will never be unprepared again. If you’re not a breakfast person, and prefer something on the lighter side, this will be absolutely perfect for you!

Stock up and freeze.

8. And it’s showtime! Just plop it into the bottom of your cup and pour your coffee straight over the top.
