Low Carb Chocolate Roulade
Yummy low carb dessert to bring to any holiday party.
60 grams (9 Tablespoons) Ground almonds
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum
3 Tablespoon sugar substitute
3 Tablespoon Cocoa
500g (2 packages) low fat cream cheese
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 Tablespoon sugar substitute
Preheat the oven on 190 C
Mix egg whites separately and place it aside
Mix egg yolks with sugar.
Mix all the grained almonds, baking powder and xanthan gum together
Once egg yolks are mixed, slowly add grained almonds mixture and cocoa
Once all mixed, with a spatula add whipped egg whites and fold it gently
Place in the oven for 20 minutes
Once baked, take it out and place the parchment paper with the baked base on a wet towel. In that way it will be easier to separate the base from the parchment paper. Leave it for 5 minutes and then slowly start peeling the base from the parchment paper.
Once all taken out, make holes all over the base
For the filling, mix all ingredients in a mixer until blended
Place the filling on top of the baked base and slowly roll it together
Once all rolled, place the roll into a plastic wrap and firmly wrap it, so the roulade holds properly.
Place it in the fridge for 8 hours, best overnight
