DIY Almond Flour Crust for a Chewy Caramel Slice

The almond flour crust is made the same way you would make a graham cracker crust, but with almond flour instead of graham crackers.

To make the crust, mix all the ingredients for it together in a bowl. The almond flour should be damp, but not soggy.

Next, cover a square baking pan with parchment paper and press the crust mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake the crust for about 15 minutes, or until it is golden brown, at 180C/350F.

Then allow the crust to cool to room temperature.

Nut-Free Crust Alternative

If you or someone else would love to try these caramel slices but are allergic to nuts try making the crust with our homemade coconut flour pie crust instead.

Ingredients

Almond Flour Base

Keto Caramel

Instructions

Almond Flour Crust

  • Preheat your oven to 180C/350F and line a square baking pan with parchment paper. Combine all the ingredients for the crust in a bowl.

  • Spread the almond meal/flour mixture around the bottom of your baking dish. Use the palm of your hand to firmly press the crust flat into the pan. Bake the crust 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Keto Caramel

  • In a skillet melt together the butter and brown sweetener. Continuously stir the butter and sugar until all the sugar is completely melted.

  • Once the sugar is melted slowly pour the heavy cream into the caramel while still stirring. The caramel will bubble for a bit while the cream is being poured in. Continue to stir the caramel on high heat until it thickens and slides off your utensil, about 15-20 minutes.

  • Remove the caramel from the heat and mix in the vanilla and salt. Let the caramel cool 5-10 minutes before pouring over your almond flour crust and spreading the caramel out. Place you baking pan in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes to allow the caramel to harden.

Melted Chocolate

  • Add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave safe dish. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second increments until the chocolate is completely melted. Be sure to stir the chocolate inbetween. If you do not have a microwave you can melt the chocolate in a sauce pan on low heat.

  • Once the chocolate is melted pour it over your caramel and spread out with a spoon. Refrigerate your keto caramel slice for at least an hour to harden. Your caramels can also be placed in the freezer for 20 minutes to speed up the process.

Cutting and Storing

  • To cut the caramels lift the caramels from the pan using the edges of the parchment paper. To easily cut the caramels run a knife under hot water and then cut the caramels into 32 pieces. Caramels slices should be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month in an air tight container. Caramels can also be individually wrapped in parchment paper to be given as a gift.
