Low Carb Chocolate Log With Blueberries

This is a very nice low carb chocolate log, with added blueberries. Could be perfect for Sunday dessert.

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 

250g cream cheese
50g Butter - melted
1 tbsp Natvia
1 tbsp Vanilla essence
½ cup blueberries or sliced strawberries

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

The leaves on my blueberry bushes have now turned the most beautiful red colour yet can you believe that I'm still picking fruit from them, amazing. I picked enough on Sunday to take for my mum and dad to have a sprinkle of them over their cereal each day this week. I like the idea of them in a chocolate log.

Thanks for your comments. I'm so pleased you've had such a good year with your blueberry bushes ... so good to be able to share them with family.
Low Carb chocolate log and blueberries do work well together.

Thanks for your comment. Yes, with this 'base' you can use many different fillings, although I do like blueberries, or even a mix of fruits would be nice.
