Saw this recipe the other day and knew I had to make it. It’s been a minute since I’ve made a tasty keto treat. Recipe makes a dozen. Mix 1/2 cup softened butter and 3/4 cup Brown Swerve in mixer until nice and creamy. Add 2 room temp large eggs and 1/2 t caramel extract. Mix until well mixed then add in 1 cup of fine almond flour and 1/4 t salt and mix until the boringly incorporated. Hand fold in 1 cup chopped pecans and 1/3 cup sugar free chocolate chips. I didn’t have any so I used sugar free salted caramel chips. Bake at 325F 25-30 minutes until just set on top. Should be a little jiggly so they are nice and gooey inside. Passed a few out and they were loved. My buddies teenage daughter said you couldn’t tell they were keto and loved it. Dressed up with a little fresh whipped cream and a sugar free caramel sauce.

Thanks for looking! If you are doing low carb / keto I think you will love these.

I'm not much on dessert but I think I'd love popping 3-4 of those delicious looking treats down my pie hole! Beautiful piece of work there Jeff, bookmarked. RAY

Nice, Jeff! I don't really follow a keto diet, but I do try to omit or drastically reduce sugar in food. Consequently, I never eat anything sweet and my sweet tooth misses it. I will try this, thank you for the recipe...

Look really good!! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks and quite welcome
Wow Jeff! Another winner. I will be doing these soon. Thanks for sharing.
I think you will like these despite the almond flour Brian. I plan on taking some to my BiL ( also a Bryan) who usually has issues with almond flour texture. Must be the name :)

Thanks Ray! These make a real nice snack with a cup of coffee.

I think you will like them. The desserts I post with Swerve and other sweeteners are hard to distinguish from the real sweets with dramatically less sugar / carbs. These are 2 net carbs each and virtually zero sugar. The key thing on these is to not over bake. I may even pull at 20 minutes next time. Want that center to be nice and gooey.
