Ingredients

  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¾ cup low carb sweetener eg xylitol or Swerve
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 2 tbs brandy optional
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup low carb dark chocolate chips approx 3 oz
  • toasted sliced almonds to garnish

Instructions

  • Add eggs and sweetener to a bowl and lightly whisk to combine. Place over a saucepan of boiling water (to form a bain marie), and cook the mixture until the sweetener has dissolved and the temperature is warm.
  • Remove from the heat, then add in almond flour and brandy, if using. Set aside to cool.
  • Pour the heavy cream and vanilla extract into a stand mixer bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Fold in the cooled egg mixture and the chocolate chips.
  • Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap and pour the mixture into the pan. Place in the freezer for at least six hours or overnight.
  • Remove from the freezer five minutes before serving, then use the plastic wrap to lift it out of the pan, flipping it over onto a serving plate. Garnish with toasted sliced almonds. Cut into slices and serve immediately.
