Chocolate Fudge Crumb Bars
Low carb and grain-free, these chocolate fudge crumb bars are my healthy answer to Starbucks' oatmeal fudge bars.
cup whipping cream
cup powdered Swerve Sweetener
ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
tsp vanilla extract
tsp xanthan gum
- Preheat oven to 325F and grease a 9x13 baking pan.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut, sweetener and salt. Stir in butter and vanilla extract and toss until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Press 2/3 of mixture firmly into bottom prepared baking pan. Bake 8 minutes, until just golden on the edges and then remove (it will not be baked through).
- In a large saucepan, heat whipping cream and powdered sweetener over medium heat, stirring to combine. Bring to barely a simmer and remove from heat. Add chopped chocolate and let sit 5 minutes to melt.
- Whisk filling until smooth, then add vanilla. Sprinkle surface with xanthan gum and whisk vigorously to combine. Pour filling over crust and spread to the edges.
- Sprinkle the surface with remaining crumb mixture. Bake 22 to 25 minutes, until topping is golden brown. Remove and let cool completely.

It is calculated using MacGourmet software and I remove erythritol from the final carb count and net carb count, as it does not affect my own blood glucose levels. I do my best to be as accurate as possible but you should independently calculate nutritional information on your own before relying on them.
