Low Carb Six in a Pan

Low Carb Sex in a Pan Recipe

My best friend makes the best desserts. Actually. She posted a no sugar, low carb dessert a couple weeks ago on her Facebook and I couldn’t help but try it.

It is layers upon layers; hence the six in a pan, which to put in her own words, “…is actually named something a bit more scandalous, but it’s one of my favorite desserts. Since I try to avoid sugar I whipped up a guilt free, low carb version.”

I’m super stoked that she said I could share it on my blog. She’s pretty great. This serves about 9.

Low Carb Sex in a Pan

Low Carb Six In a Pan

Layer one:

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
  • 1/4 coconut flour
  • 1/4 ground flax seed
  • 2 TBSP melted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Stevia/Erythritol to taste

Mix up, spread in a greased 9×9 pan and place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes.

Layer 2:

  • 3/4 cup softened cream cheese
  • 1/4 Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup whipped cream
  • Small splash lemon juice
  • Stevia/erythritol to taste

Whip ingredients together then spread over cooled crust.

Layer 3: (pudding recipe from Trim Healthy Mama book)

  • 1-1/2 cups almond milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • Stevia/Erythritol to taste*
  • 1 tsp glucomannan powder

*I like using this blend of both!

Blend in blender for 30 seconds and let it rest for 30 seconds.
Then blend again till thick. It takes a minute for the glucomannan to do it’s thickening magic.

Layer 4:

  • Same as last layer plus 2 tbsp. cocoa.

Layer 5:

  • 1-1/2 whipped cream sweetened with stevia.

Layer 6:

  • Grated 85 percent dark chocolate.

Refrigerate for a couple hours before serving.

Note: For a few weeks I will be posting 1-2x weekly, so not as regularly. Thank you for your understanding. Love you all! xoxo

Have you tried this dessert before? Do you prefer chewy desserts like brownies or cookies, or are you all about the “creamy” sweets? I am about the creamy desserts!

    Kelly – It’s because I have some life situations happening, so sadly blogging is one of the things that had to take “backseat” – hope to get back to it soon!
