Keto Almond Squares

35 ratings

These deliciously simple almond squares are light and fluffy with a hint of lemon and a crunchy top of slivered almonds.

Where xylitol has been used in the recipe, this can be replaced with erythritol or your preferred low carb sweetener of choice.

Perfect for afternoon tea or as a lunch box treat!

    I became allergic to xylitol. Can anyone suggest a good alternative and amount?

        My go-to sweet treat. Very quick to make too which makes it a winner in all ways. HINT I add the lemon zest which makes it extra delicious.

          Loved, loved this recipe! Used Monkfruit as sweeter. Strong almond flavor, which I liked.

                      This is the best treat I have found on Keto! So amazing and bakes perfectly - fluffy and so flavourful! This is a game changer for me!! I followed the directions exactly other than adding a touch more Almond extract...and it was absolutely perfect. Can’t thank you enough for this recipe!!

                        Wow, this is super good. My only problem will be not eating the entire thing in one day! Best bread-like thing I've had since starting keto 4 months ago!

                        I made these into bite size mini muffins and they are great! I used erythritol and added a tsp of vanilla instead of lemon juice. Even my "donut lovin" husband thought they were good

                        Love this recipe! Took out the lemon juice, added another tablespoon of almond milk. Added 1/3 of a cup of dark chocolate chips. So delicious!

                          Big fan of this. I would put the sprinkling of almonds on earlier than the recipe stated next time though, my oven tends to seem to run a little hotter and it was pretty much cooked so all the flaked almonds just fell off. But it was delicious

                          I made this and it came out GREAT. Firm but fluffy like a pound cake. Totally satisfied my sweet tooth in a healty way! The almond flavor is nice, too. I might add a little vanilla extract the next time.

                          I just made this and wow!!!! I’m super impressed. I made a mistake and used 3 large eggs. I also didn’t have almond extract so used vanilla extract. I also used Erythritol and sprinkled Sukrin Gold on top. Not eggy at all like many of the Keto breads. This is a keeper for sure!!

                            This cake is delicious! My husband would come home and steal pieces of cake because he loves it so much and he’s not even doing keto. Thank you for the great recipe.
