DIY Almond Flour Crust for a Chewy Caramel Slice
The almond flour crust is made the same way you would make a graham cracker crust, but with almond flour instead of graham crackers.
To make the crust, mix all the ingredients for it together in a bowl. The almond flour should be damp, but not soggy.
Next, cover a square baking pan with parchment paper and press the crust mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake the crust for about 15 minutes, or until it is golden brown, at 180C/350F.
Then allow the crust to cool to room temperature.
Nut-Free Crust Alternative
If you or someone else would love to try these caramel slices but are allergic to nuts try making the crust with our homemade coconut flour pie crust instead.
Make the Keto Caramel
The sugar-free caramel should be made while the crust is cooking in the oven.
To make the caramel, you will want to melt your butter and preferred brown sugar-free sweetener together on high heat in a skillet.

Once the brown sweetener is completely dissolved, slowly pour your heavy cream into the caramel while continuously stirring. The caramel will bubble up while you are pouring in the cream but will settle down as your stir.
Continue to gently stir your caramel on high heat until it thickens and slides off your utensil, about 15-20 minutes. Once the caramel has thickened, remove the caramel from the heat.
Mix in the vanilla and a pinch of salt before letting the caramel cool for about 10 minutes.
After the caramel has cooled, pour it over your crust, and spread out with the back of a spoon.
Next, place the whole baking pan in the refrigerator to allow your caramel to chill for at least 10 minutes.
Keto Caramel Slice Topped with Chocolate
After your caramel has chilled, you will make the chocolate topping. Before you begin, the caramel needs to be firm enough that you can spread the melted chocolate on top,
To make the chocolate topping, add your dark chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl or cup and melt in the microwave.
You will want to melt the chocolate in 30-second increments, stirring in-between, until the chocolate is smooth. My microwave melted the chocolate perfectly in 1 minute.
If you do not have a microwave you can melt the chocolate in a saucepan on the stove over low heat. Once the chocolate is melted pour the chocolate over the caramel and spread it out.
Your caramel slices will need to chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before they are ready to cut.

Almond Flour Crust
Preheat your oven to 180C/350F and line a square baking pan with parchment paper. Combine all the ingredients for the crust in a bowl.
Spread the almond meal/flour mixture around the bottom of your baking dish. Use the palm of your hand to firmly press the crust flat into the pan. Bake the crust 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.
In a skillet melt together the butter and brown sweetener. Continuously stir the butter and sugar until all the sugar is completely melted.
Once the sugar is melted slowly pour the heavy cream into the caramel while still stirring. The caramel will bubble for a bit while the cream is being poured in. Continue to stir the caramel on high heat until it thickens and slides off your utensil, about 15-20 minutes.
Remove the caramel from the heat and mix in the vanilla and salt. Let the caramel cool 5-10 minutes before pouring over your almond flour crust and spreading the caramel out. Place you baking pan in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes to allow the caramel to harden.
Add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave safe dish. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second increments until the chocolate is completely melted. Be sure to stir the chocolate inbetween. If you do not have a microwave you can melt the chocolate in a sauce pan on low heat.
Once the chocolate is melted pour it over your caramel and spread out with a spoon. Refrigerate your keto caramel slice for at least an hour to harden. Your caramels can also be placed in the freezer for 20 minutes to speed up the process.
Cutting and Storing
To cut the caramels lift the caramels from the pan using the edges of the parchment paper. To easily cut the caramels run a knife under hot water and then cut the caramels into 32 pieces. Caramels slices should be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month in an air tight container. Caramels can also be individually wrapped in parchment paper to be given as a gift.
