Salted Almond and Coconut Slice (Ketogenic friendly, dairy free, gluten free, egg free)


While on ketogenic diet, I was wondering do I have to give up snacks, especially chocolate? I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate!!! So I begin to look for a delicious and easy recipe that are ketogenic diet friendly.  The original recipe call for sweetener, which I replace with honey instead. The recipe also call for coconut butter, which are easily made using a blender (recipe link for coconut butter: https://roxanang.wordpress.com/2017/01/19/coconut-butter/)

Be careful as this chocolate is sooooo additive!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients
:

60g whole almonds

25g unsweetened coconut flakes / shredded coconut 

100 grams dark chocolate (I use 85% dark chocolate)

100g coconut butter

1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)

1 teaspoon honey / artificial sweeteners 

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste

Rectangle baking tray (24×16.5cm) line with baking paper


Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 175°C

2. Line baking tray with baking paper and put in the almonds and coconut and spread it out. Place it in the preheated oven and toast for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown. Stir once or twice to prevent burning. Remove and set aside. (I use my Tefal Air Fryer for 4 min)


3. In a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate completely and turn off the fire.



4. Stir in the coconut butter, almond extract and honey and mix till smooth.


5. Pour the chocolate mixture onto the baking tray. Spread it out evenly using the spatula.


6. Scatter the toasted almond and coconut flakes over the top and press gently with hands so that everything is touching the chocolate. 


7. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and leave in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Once it has set, slice with a knife or a pizza cutter.
