Just for the fun of it, I decided to try a crunch with amaretto syrup. I had just mentioned on the Low Carb Diets forum that I wished I had some apple syrup to make a crunch and that’s what this tastes and looks like: apple! Yippee! 8+)
1/2 cup sugar-free Amaretto Da Vinci syrup
1 teaspoon granular erythritol
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/16 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon glucomannan powder
1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tablespoons salted butter, melted
2 teaspoons granular erythritol
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
Grease a small microwave-safe dish (about 2 1/2 cups). In this dish, whisk together syrup, erythritol, cinnamon, salt, and glucomannan powder, in that order. Stir in coconut. Set aside. (This will thicken while you work on the topping.)
In a small bowl, mix together butter, erythritol, vanilla, and salt. Stir in coconut flour, then walnuts. Carefully spread mixture on top of amaretto mixture (which should be set by now).
Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Let cool for at least a few minutes. You can eat this warm or chill for later.
This makes 1 serving with about 3 net carbs.
