  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol (or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 2 cups brewed strong coffee, cooled
  • 1/4 cup dark rum or coffee liqueur (optional)
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting
  • Dark chocolate shavings for garnish


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, cocoa powder, powdered erythritol, and vanilla extract. Mix until a crumbly dough forms.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  3. Gently fold the mascarpone cheese into the whipped cream until smooth and well combined.
  4. Layer the bottom of a serving dish with half of the almond flour mixture.
  5. Combine the cooled coffee and rum (if using) in a shallow dish.
  6. Dip ladyfinger cookies or almond flour biscuits into the coffee mixture, then arrange them on top of the almond flour layer.
  7. Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.
  8. Create another layer by repeating steps 4-7 with the remaining ingredients.
  9. Dust the top of the tiramisu with unsweetened cocoa powder.
  10. Cover and refrigerate the tiramisu for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to meld.
  11. Before serving, garnish with dark chocolate shavings.

Note: For a non-alcoholic version, skip the rum or coffee liqueur and use a little extra coffee for soaking the ladyfingers.
