If you like caramel desserts, you will love this keto salted caramel recipe. There are no sweetener crystals, which you get with most low-carb sweeteners, and most importantly you'll not experience any blood sugar spikes!
It's thicker than my Keto Caramel Sauce but it's just as smooth and silky. While caramel sauce is best for drizzling over low-carb desserts such as ice-cream and smoothies, this thicker caramel is best for bars, caramels and other sugar-free treats.
The ingredients and steps are almost the same as for my Smooth & Silky Keto Caramel Sauce with a few adjustments. Here are the three main differences:
- You will need to cook the caramel for slightly longer, 5 to 10 more minutes depending on the desired thickness.
- As the caramel thickens it can burn easily so make sure to keep an eye on it and keep stirring.
- You will be adding salt to make salted caramel this time. Salt is optional but highly recommended!
What Sweetener Can I Use?
If you want to make sugar-free caramel that tastes like the real deal, you have to use Allulose. No substitutions here!
Allulose won’t spike your blood sugar levels. It's as sweet as sugar and can be used just like sugar. When melted it creates the smoothest caramel and is crystal-free which makes it perfect for other keto treats such as marshmallows.
There are a few Allulose options available on Amazon. The brand I use and like is RxSugar. If you live in the US you can get RxSugar 20% off by using this link (affiliate link) or by using the code KETODIET20 at checkout.
