Florentines are the most delicious treat. Crispy almonds surrounded by a slightly fruity melt-in-your-mouth toffee.
What a pity that you can’t have them when you enjoy a low carb or sugar free lifestyle.
OR CAN YOU?
Using Sukrin Gold gives you a rich toffee flavor without the nasties and these sensational treats can be whipped up in no time.
2 cups of flaked almonds
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon of orange zest
2/3 cup of Sukrin Gold
4 oz. of sugar-free dark chocolate
Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine all of the ingredients, except for the chocolate, in a mixing bowl.
Line a baking tray with silicone paper and drop spoonful’s of mixture onto the tray.
The Florentines will spread so leave planty of room.
Using the back of a spoon dipped in water, gently spread the mixture out into a single layer.
Bake for approx. 25 minutes but keep an eye on them after 15 minutes because they can easily burn.
Remove from the oven and sit n trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
Brush a thin coating onto the base of each Florentine.
You can eat them just like that but I like to also drizzle some chocolate over the top.
AND I recently learned that you can also sandwich two together with a chocolate filling.
My macro calculations are based on 12 Florentine sandwiches.
Store, in an airtight container for up to 7 days
