14523928119690Ingredients

Base

2 cups almond meal

¼ cup coconut flour

¼ cup granulated stevia

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup melted butter

 

Filling

600 ml thickened cream

¼ cup granulated stevia

1 tablespoon coconut flour

200 g 90% cocoa chocolate (I use Lindt)

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon xanthan gum

 

Method

Line a slice tray (approx. 27cmx16cm) with baking paper and heat oven to 160oC fan forced.
For the base, mix all dry ingredients in a bowl then add the melted butter and mix until combined.
Press about 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of the slice tray making sure the mixture is evenly distributed.
The remainder will be used as the crumble on top.
Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.
The edges will be just starting to brown but will not be cooked through.
Remove from oven.

While the base is cooking, pour the cream into a small saucepan on low-med heat, add the stevia, coconut flour and chocolate and stir until the chocolate is just melted.
Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla and xanthan gum.
Cool for about 10 mins until slightly thickened then gently pour on top of base.
Top with remaining crumbled base mixture and cook in the oven again for about 25-30 minutes until the crumble on top is just turning golden brown.
Remove from oven and cool in the fridge for several hours before slicing.
