Keto Caramel Machiatto Tiramisu Recipe:
- 12 4×4 squares of cream cheese pancakes or crepes (unsweetened), recipe here
- 1 cup espresso or coffee, cooled
- Unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting
For the filling:
- 4 oz of cream cheese, softened
- 2 tbsp sugar-free caramel-flavored syrup (I use this brand)
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Mix the cream cheese with the caramel syrup until smooth and creamy.
- Whip the heavy cream until stiff.
- Fold about 1/3 of the whipped cream into the caramel mixture. Add the caramel mixture back to the remainder of the whipped cream and fold gently until fully combined. Chill for a few minutes. The cream, not you.
- Meanwhile, soak the pancakes in the coffee for about 2 minutes. Since they aren’t very porous it takes a little time for them to absorb the coffee – you can soak them longer if you want a stronger coffee flavor.
- Add the cream to a pastry bag with a large star tube attached.
- Have four small plates ready. Place a coffee square on the plate. Pipe a layer of cream on it. Dust with cocoa powder. Repeat until you have three layers. Repeat with the rest of the plates.
- Serve with optional sugar-free chocolate sauce.

And if you are REALLY craving something decadent, make sure you load it up with sugar-free chocolate sauce…. lots and lots of it!
