Perfect, Low Carb Berry Dessert
Fruit is naturally one of the higher carb food items out there. Did you know one banana has about 21 grams of carbs?! That is almost as much as a keto dieter is supposed to eat in a whole day! Luckily, there are some fruits that are lower in carbs, specifically berries.
Blackberries only have about 10 carbs in one cup but, of those 10 carbs, 5 are made from fiber. This means that the body digests them immediately and they are not absorbed. The net carbs in a cup of blackberries are only 5 grams. So much less that than a pesky banana!
Berries also make perfect, low carb desserts. They are naturally sweet and bursting with flavor. Fresh berries are especially delicious to eat and use in recipes. Most berries are in season in the spring but grocery stores start carrying fresh berries in bulk around the middle of winter (Thanks to those warmer states for making berries available early!). That means, right now, you can probably find some pretty tasty berries in a store near you. So why not whip up a low carb, blackberry dessert tonight?
We have made it super easy to make a delicious, homemade blackberry cobbler. You only need a few ingredients and ten minutes to put together this fresh dessert. We all have ten minutes to spare in order to have something fantastic to eat! The recipe is kept simple on purpose so that the juicy blackberry taste can really pop. You don’t need to add much, the blackberries already to all the work!
To make the crisp filling, you need a bowl that is wide enough to toss all the ingredients around. The bigger, the better. All the filling ingredients are added to the bowl and mixed together. You want to be sure to really coat the blackberries in the erythritol so that the sweetness is evenly distributed. I like to use my hands to mix everything together. Your hands are the best kitchen tool you have!
The blackberry filling is spread into a pan and then it’s on to the topping. You can actually use the same bowl to make the topping and save on the dishes. Everything is getting mixed together eventually anyway! The topping is even easier to make than the filling as you only need to measure two ingredients.
We love using the crunchy So Nourished Blueberry Almond Granola because it not only adds tons of flavor, but it is also already stuffed with fantastic keto ingredients. The work is done for you! All you need to do is buy one little bag of granola and then enjoy! Mixing the blueberry almond granola with the butter makes the granola a little more tender and dessert-worthy.
Sprinkle the granola topping over the blackberry filling and your keto blackberry crisp is ready to bake. You are going to want to try a scoop right when it comes out of the oven. There is nothing quite as delicious as warm, sweet blackberries. It’s even better that you can enjoy every bite of this low carb dessert knowing that you are sticking to your diet goals. Tasty fruit desserts can be keto-friendly and this one is the perfect example. Make it now while blackberries are fresh! Let us know how much you loved it. We sure did.
