Recipe type: Dessert
- 1½ cups LC-Almond Flour
- 6 Tablespoons butter, chilled
- ¼ cup LC-Erythritol Powder
- ½ teaspoon LC-Xanthan Gum
- 15 drops LC-Natural Sweet Drops
- Chocolate Filling/Drizzle:
- 6 Tablespoons butter
- 2 Tablespoons LC-Erythritol Powder
- 2.5 oz unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
- ¼ cup LC-Dutch Premium Cocoa Powder
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 18 drops LC-Natural Sweet Drops
- Caramel/Coconut Filling:
- 1½ cups LC-Shredded Coconut
- ½ cup LC-Erythritol Powder
- 2 teaspoons molasses
- ½ cup whipping cream
- 1 Tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons dark rum (optional)
- For the crust, preheat the oven to 350F.
- Combine almond flour, butter, erythritol, xanthan gum and LC-Natural Sweet Drops in a food processer. Pulse until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
- Press mixture evenly into the bottom of an 8-inch square pan and bake 15 minutes or until light golden brown.
- Set aside and let cool.
- For the chocolate, melt butter together with erythritol and chopped chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring continuously until smooth.
- Add cocoa powder and stir until smooth.
- Stir in vanilla and LC-Natural Sweet Drops. (If you find your chocolate seizing, add a little more butter or vegetable oil and stir until smooth.)
- Spread about ⅔ of chocolate mixture over the cooled crust, reserving remaining chocolate for drizzle.
- Toast coconut over medium heat in a medium skillet until golden brown, stirring frequently.
- For the caramel sauce, combine erythritol and molasses together in a small saucepan over medium heat.
- Cook, stirring frequently, until erythritol has dissolved and mixture bubbles, about 5 to 7 minutes (note – the molasses makes the mixture dark from the beginning so do not go by color to tell if caramel is done. Make sure it bubbles before continuing to the next step).
- Remove from heat and stir in the cream, coconut oil and rum. Stir until smooth. Return to heat and boil one minute.
- Stir in toasted coconut.
- Spread coconut mixture over chocolate-covered crust.
- Let cool completely (about 1 hour), then cut into squares.
- Gently reheat remaining chocolate mixture and drizzle over cut bars.
- Each bar has a total of 7.8 g of carbs and 4.6 g of fiber (there is a surprising amount of fiber in both chocolate and coconut!). Total NET CARBS = 3.2 g.
