I’ve got a really good sugar-free almond brittle recipe to share with you today, but it comes with several strong WARNINGS.
Take a good look at these pictures of low carb almond brittle and burn them into your memory.
You are going to need to replicate the deep brown color of the candy for it to be a success. What you are trying to do is simmer a mixture of butter, erythritol and vanilla until it almost, but doesn’t quite burn. If you do it right, you’ll have a batch of delicious sugar-free almond brittle with only 1g net carbs per serving. But if you cook it too little, it’ll be too soft and grainy to hold together, and if you cook it too long it will be a blackened mess. So tread lightly, is all I’m saying.
Ok, now go get’em tigers! You can do this!
(And please, no angry comments if you can’t.)
Almond Brittle [Low Carb & Keto]
This is a quick low carb and Keto almond brittle recipe that you can make in about 10 minutes. It’s a sugar-free version of a classic homemade candy.
- Prep Time: 5
- Cook Time: 5
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 8 servings 1x
- Category: Dessert
- Method: Stovetop
- Cuisine: American
1/4 cup salted butter
1/2 cup Swerve or equivalent granulated sweetener
2 teaspoons alcohol-free vanilla extract
1 cup sliced almonds
1. Line a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish or large rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Use a medium sized, light colored or metal sauce pan, if you have one, because they will make it easier to gauge the color of the brittle mixture. Make space in the fridge for the casserole dish or cookie sheet.
2. Add butter, sweetener and vanilla to a medium sized saucepan and cook over Medium heat until fully dissolved and no longer grainy, stirring constantly.
3. Bring to a low simmer. Lower the heat to Low and simmer for 1-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches a deep brown color. It’s very easy to burn the caramel, so stop as soon as it starts to become brown. It will happen quickly. But don’t take it off the heat if it is still tan in color, because that will make it crumbly and grainy.
5. Remove from heat, mix in sliced almonds and pour into the parchment covered pan. Smooth out the nuts so they are evenly distributed. Make sure that the brittle mixture is touching all the almonds to hold the brittle together.
5. Chill in the refrigerator until set, about 1 hour.
6. Chop roughly.
