TIPS TO MAKE KETO CHOCOLATE BARS WITH STRAWBERRY JAM
Keto cake crust
You will love this keto cake crust. Since I made it for the first time I can't get enough of it! My children like cakes with that crust because it's really flavorful and crispy. It works perfectly as a bottom of keto peanut butter cheesecake bars and it's perfect here with ganache and strawberry jam.
Keto strawberry jam
My strawberry jam without chia seeds is sugar free and keto, it's done really fast from the scratch, and you can make it with frozen strawberries and with literally 3 ingredients! So, my recommendation is to make your own strawberry jam. You will have it for this cake and for your keto breakfasts! I like this jam for breakfast with a slice of fantastic and not eggy 90 second keto bread and a cup of coffee. This combination is great for your keto afternoon tea, instead of cake. That's why I really like to have this jam in my fridge and regularly making new batch.
Of course, if you are not so enthusiastic about making homemade jam, you can use any store-bought sugar free strawberry jam you can find.
Keto chocolate ganache
Chocolate ganache recipe is so good in combination with crispy crust and strawberry jam. This keto ganache recipe was inspired by my beautiful blogger friend Chiara, from the blog Chiarin tanjurić. She gave me idea to add some coffee in ganache. And I can tell you, it's delicious! It goes really great with strawberry jam flavor.
