5 thoughts on “Keto Caramel Sauce”

  1. Perfect for all keto desserts! I make a paleo vegan caramel sauce out of nut butter, maple syrup and coconut oil but this one sounds great too!

  2. This caramel sauce sounds heavenly delicious. I was always puzzled how to make low-carb version but now I know. Can’t wait to make this.
