Christmas Chocolate Log With Blueberries : Low Carb




This is a very nice low carb chocolate log, with added blueberries. It could be perfect for an alternative Christmas (or New Year) dessert. 

Ingredients:
1 cup Almond flour
3 Eggs
50g Butter
¼ cup Psyllium husk
½ cup Coconut cream
¼ cup Cocoa
1 tbsp. Natvia (or sweetener of your choice)

1 tbsp. Vanilla essence 

Filling:
250g cream cheese
50g Butter - melted
1 tbsp. Natvia
1 tbsp. Vanilla essence

½ cup blueberries or sliced strawberries 

Instructions:
Combine almond flour, psyllium husks, cocoa, and natvia. Add melted butter, beaten eggs and coconut cream. Mix well. Lay a lamington (baking) tray (30x20cm) with oiled/ greased greaseproof paper. Press mixture onto paper and bake at 180 c for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly. While still warm lift paper/cake out of tray and lay on a clean tea towel, paper side on the tea towel. 

Roll gently and leave to cool completely. Mix filling ingredients. When the roll is cool, very gently unroll. Spread filling on cake and spread with blueberries/strawberries. Gently roll again pressing the paper as you do. 

Serves 10.
Carbs per serving 2.9
