calculator Calculating Net Atkins Count™


  • 6 Tbsp Almond Butter
  • 3/8 cup Coconut Cream, canned
  • 29 grams Atkins Milk Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 6 tbsp Chocolate Chips, sugar free
  • 1/3 Tbsp Coconut Oil


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mix the almond butter, coconut cream, and salt together until well combined. If both the almond butter and coconut cream are solid or cold, you may need to warm them either in the microwave (in a microwaves safe container) or over a pot of steaming water (in a heat proof bowl) to be able to completely incorporate.
  2. Add the protein powder and mix until all the powder is worked in, and a smooth texture develops. The mixture will be slightly oily.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Make 12 balls by scooping one tablespoon of the almond butter mixture and using your hands to form into a ball. Place the balls on the parchment paper lined baking sheet and put into the freezer to cool for 30 minutes.
  4. While the balls are cooling, use a double boiler (or in a medium heat proof bowl over a small saucepan with about 1-inch simmering water) to melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together, stirring until fully melted and uniform texture. Keep warm until the balls are well cooled.
  5. Remove the balls from the freezer and, one at a time, roll in the melted chocolate to coat. Place each coated truffle back on the parchment paper and refrigerate until the chocolate has hardened, about 10 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week
*29g = 1 scoop of Atkins Milk Chocolate Protein Powder.


Cooking Tip

Try adding diced freeze dried strawberries  as a variation.  Adding in 1-2 freeze dried strawberry slices won't change the NC enough to worry about so just enjoy!

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
