The holidays are just around the corner, and happen to be my very favourite time of year! I’m already planning out treats and getting gift ideas, and I’m sure I am not the only one!

This year I am going to surprise my sugar free friends and family with this extra delicious Keto Almond Bark! I cannot wait to see their faces light up with excitement as they dive into these tasty beauties.

Why it works

  1. Roasting the almonds bring a roasty toasty richness to this Keto Almond Bark and adds an extra layer of crunch.
  2. This recipe is very simple, therefor a great treat to make during the busy holiday season.
  3. Sea salt draws out the roasted almond and almond butter flavours in this yummy dessert, while the coffee enriches the chocolate, bringing you a world of deep flavours to perfectly satisfy that sweets crave.

Keto Almond Bark Ingredients

  • whole almonds
  • coconut oil
  • powdered monk fruit / erythritol sweetener
  • unsweetened chocolate
  • instant coffee
  • sea salt
  • almond butter

Coconut Oil – I use refined coconut oil in this recipe to avoid a coconut flavour. Do you like coconut flavour? If you do, go ahead and use unrefined coconut oil.

Powdered Monk Fruit / Erythritol Sweetener – My favourite sweetener! I buy the granular monk fruit / erythritol sweetener by either Lakanto or SoNourished and then turn it into powdered by blitzing it in a clean coffee grinder for a moment or two.

Instant CoffeeWhat’s this ingredient doing here? Instant coffee enriches the chocolate flavour in this Keto Almond Bark! You can add 1 tsp to get the job done, or if you would like a hint of coffee flavour ( like I sure do! ), you can add 2 tsp! Don’t have any? That’s okay, it is not essential to make this Keto Almond Bark.

How to make Keto Almond Bark

First step is to get the almonds roasted. Heat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a non stick baking mat. Once the oven is ready, roast the almonds for 4 minutes, then remove from the oven, pour them into a dish and set aside. Keep the parchment or non stick baking mat on the baking sheet for later!

While the almonds are roasting, finely chop the chocolate so that it is all ready to go.

Grab a double boiler and place an inch or two of water in the bottom, then heat on medium high. Place the coconut oil inside the top of the double boiler and whisk until melted. Sift in the powdered sweetener and whisk until fully combined; it should be a paste consistency.

Add the chopped chocolate, instant coffee and whisk until all of the chocolate has fully melted, then stir in the almond butter and 1/4 tsp sea salt. Remove the top of the double boiler from the heat and stir in 1/2 of the roasted almonds.

Pour the mixture out onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it out so that the chocolate mixture is very thin, then sprinkle the remaining roasted almonds evenly over the chocolate.

Allow the chocolate to set for 10 minutes or so, then sprinkle the coarse sea salt evenly over the chocolate. Place the whole baking sheet in the refrigerator to fully set.

After about an hour, the Keto Chocolate Bark can be broken into pieces; I usually get around 20. Store in an air tight container or zilpoc bag in the refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  1. Make sure to time your almonds – you don’t want those beauties getting burned!
  2. To make a double boiler, I use a medium sized saucepan as the base, filled with an inch or two of water, then I place a heat safe glass dish over top of the saucepan, being sure that it is wide enough to cover the whole saucepan. The glass dish is what I use to melt / whisk everything in.
  3. Instant coffee is used to enrich the chocolate flavour in this dessert. I like to use 2 tsp to give my Keto Almond Bark more of a coffee flavour, however, if you would like it less coffee flavoured, add just 1 tsp. If you do not have instant coffee, this recipe still works without it.
  4. When spreading the chocolate mixture over the baking sheet, ensure the coated almonds are evenly spaced throughout the chocolate.
  5. Make sure the Keto Chocolate Bark has fully hardened before breaking into pieces.

Instructions

Equipment Needed

Directions

  • Heat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a non stick baking mat. Once the oven is ready, spread the almonds around the baking sheet and roast for 4 minutes, then remove from the oven, pour them into a dish and set aside. Keep the parchment on the baking sheet for later!
  • While the almonds are roasting, finely chop the chocolate so that it is all ready to go.
  • Grab a double boiler and place an inch or two of water in the bottom pot, then bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, place the coconut oil inside the top of the double boiler and whisk until melted. Sift in the powdered sweetener and whisk until fully combined; it should have a paste consistency.
  • Add the chopped chocolate, instant coffee and whisk until all of the chocolate has fully melted, then stir in the almond butter and 1/4 tsp sea salt. Stir in 1/2 of the roasted almonds, then pour the mixture out onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it out, using a spatula, so that the chocolate mixture is very thin.
  • Sprinkle the remaining roasted almonds evenly over the chocolate, allow the chocolate to set for 10 minutes or so, then sprinkle the coarse sea salt evenly over the chocolate. Place the whole baking sheet in the refrigerator to fully set.
  • After about an hour, the Keto Almond Bark can be broken into pieces; I usually get around 20. Store in an airtight container or zilpoc bag in the refrigerator.
