These would have come out perfect had I remembered to add the sweetener to the custard. I added 1/2 of the sweetener (powdered swerve) to the toasted coconut and lime topping and... well... it made the topping super sweet and after mushing in my mouth with the custard and crust, it was perfect. Mine set up beautifully and was sweet and tart with a crispy crust... all compatible flavors - easily the best KETO desert I've made.
Recipe developer here!!! I just want to point out a concern that some have with the carb content. I assure you these are keto-friendly. The problem is that the Allrecipes nutrition calculator doesn't factor in NET CARBS so the amount of carbs listed is actually higher than what is really in the bars. I used Swerve as the sweetener here and while Swerve does contain 3-4 g of carbs per teaspoon the ingredients in Swerve do not affect blood sugar so the carbs it contains are considered non-impact. Because of this a common practice is to subtract fiber and sugar alcohols from the carb total make it ZERO carb. This is why Swerve is a top sweetener for the keto diet. I have calculated the correct carbs for this recipe and it is 5.1 grams per servings not 17.8. ENJOY!
Methinks the base needs more butter or something to set it. Totally crumbles when trying to bring out as a bar. Also possibly this recipe was written for key limes if they are sweeter than regular? Definitely need to double the sweetener in the custard. I will scoop mine out into a bowl add some whipped cream to soften the bite and doubt I will make it again. Too much effort if it is not a winner.
