Instructions

Base

  • In a mixing bowl add the almond flour, shredded coconut and natvia.

  • Press the base evenly and firmly into a 9x13 brownie pan.
  • Place in the fridge to set while making the next layer.

Filling

  • Add ⅔ of the cream and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water.
  • With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add the gelatin mixture.
  • Add the remaining cream and mix well until all the ingredients are well combined and smooth.
  • Spoon ⅔ of the mixture on top of the chilled base.
  • Add the food coloring to the remaining mixture and mix well.
  • Spoon the pink mixture over the base and swirl through.
  • Set in the fridge for 3 hours, or overnight for best results.

Since we choose not to eat fruit, real cherries were out. So I used cherry essence with a natural extract. Rich cherry flavor and scent that is all over my hands, it’s an intoxicating perfume!

We cut the keto bars into 15 pieces; one piece is one serve.

  1. Omgoodness! Can’t wait to make these. Cherry Ripes are one of the many things I miss about home now that I live in the US.

  2. I made these. They are really good. I used some black cherry flavoring I had on hand. Next time I’m using more. I couldn’t find the cherry essence on line or in the store. I will make this yumminess again. It’s so pretty too and bot too heavy when you at it. Maybe one day I’ll add a few cherries (I’ll just take the carb hit) Thanks for the recipe.
