I don't think I can ever make another dessert again.
It's the early evening here in humid, sweltering Bet Shemesh and I'm watching my little boyfriend crawl across the table. But I can't stop him because I'm too busy stuffing my face with this INSANELY DELICIOUS crumble mixture.
I'm dropping crumbs all over the table, my skirt, and the floor but I don't care. I'm in keto heaven.
Actually, I have to blame Rav Brody for this dessert. All of his posting about Gog and Magog and the end of the world got my appetite soaring to new and inhuman levels. Since I can't eat most of what's in my house because it's not keto-friendly, I had to improvise and make my own INSANELY DELICIOUS dessert.
I don't know why, but I'm getting more keto-crazy with each day. I mean, why eat dinner when I can eat this instead? It's got nuts, eggs, coconut, and butter. It's practically a steak with broccoli on the side.
As I leisurely sip my coffee I'm silently sending out ESP signals for someone to come and take this plate away from me, because I just can't. Maybe if I keep typing my fingers won't be able to reach over and grab some more crumble and force it into my mouth.
Yes. I know. I need a therapist.
Now listen - this dessert took me an awful long time to make because I had to actually measure stuff, which y'all know I hate to do. But I did it for your sake. So somebody, PLEASE make this dessert so all of my hard work would not have been in vain.
If any of you are on a keto diet, it's my variation of a fat bomb.
I highly recommend you eat this while drinking a nice espresso or cappuccino, and/or top this over a generous scoop of sugar-free vanilla ice cream. OMG. Heaven.
Please write to me about the state of nirvana that you reached when you took a bite of this INSANELY DELICIOUS little creation.
(Did you catch my attempt to control your mind? Did it work??)
This makes a very small batch, but it goes a long way. Feel free to double (or triple) the recipe:
-2 large handful raw pecans (coarsely chop them)
-1 c. unsweetened coconut flakes (You can have my sweet friend Tena mail you some if you can't find them in your area.)
-3/4 c. ground almond
-1/2 c. ground walnut
-3/4 c. splenda
-handful pumpkin seeds
-1 T. cinnamon
-1 T. cardamon (YUM!!!)
-1 c. melted butter (YIKES!!)
Mix it all together, place it as flat as you can in a baking sheet, and bake it until it browns on the top. Mine took less than 10 minutes. If you start to smell burning, you might want to take it out.
