Tasty especially if you re on a keto diet and familiar with the sweetness of this kind of sugar substitute but difficult to cut without breaking a lot of the pieces. Read More

It would be good to use half sugar and half low calorie. I used Stevia and it needs a little bit of sugar combination. I also added a courser type of almond meal, it seemed to give it more consistency. It has potential, just needs a bit of tweaking. Will try again. Read More
