If Erika was choosing a flavoured chocolate it would always be coconut rough. She has always loved coconut and chocolate flavours together and decided to create a keto coconut rough. This keto coconut rough recipe doesn’t use any added sugar or sweetener as it gets it’s sweetness from the collagen powder and the small amount of sweetness in the 90% dark chocolate.
Did you love a golden rough or a coconut rough before embarking on your ketogenic journey? This keto coconut rough recipe will quickly become one of your favourite treat recipes.
Keto Coconut Rough
Keto coconut rough is one of those recipes that can be thrown together quickly with ingredients that are likely to be in most keto pantries. I would recommend having some collagen powder on hand for baking and for adding creaminess to add to hot drinks.
Using some keto friendly 90% dark chocolate (we prefer Lindt) and desiccated coconut as the base of this keto coconut rough recipe adds the classic flavours of a traditional coconut rough. By adding the coconut cream, it really ups the coconut flavours. I love the addition of the collagen powder as it adds some creaminess and sweetness.
We enjoyed making this as more of a slice/fudge than the more traditional cluster style coconut rough. It is easy to slice up and portion out. We have also stored any leftovers in the freezer and just take out a couple of pieces from the freezer the night before and you will have a treat ready for the next day.
We have been fans of Perfect Keto for a long time now. We have used their MCT oil powders and collagen powders in a few of our favourite recipes.

Not only do Perfect Keto have great collagen and MCT powders, but we also love that they have now branched out to more food products. We love –
- Our favourite vanilla collagen powder is from Perfect Keto. You can use our code for 20% off – HAVEBUTTERWILLTRAVEL
- Don’t let the coconut cream come to the boil as it may split. It is best to remove it from the heat as soon as it comes to a simmer.
- We used a small tin 9in x 3in x 2in. Any small loaf tin will work.
- Stores well in the fridge for a week and we have stored any leftovers in the freezer.
- You could use individual moulds or a mini muffin tray if you have one rather than making it in a loaf tin and slicing it up.
- If you don’t have vanilla collagen powder you could use vanilla protein powder instead.
