Discover Exactly What To Eat To MakeYour Body Burn More Fat

Keto Tiramisu Jars Recipe

Louise | September 27

If you purchase a drink at a coffee shop these days, it’s probably dessert. Try this Keto tiramisu jars recipe instead. It blends the magic of coffee with cake and cream. 

Is Coffee Keto? 

That totally depends on how you make it. The coffee itself isn’t the problem. All the other flavorings and sweeteners people put in coffee can make it a high-carb beverage. 

Even if you just use milk in your coffee you could be drinking up more carbs than you’d like. A cup of milk has around 12 grams of carbs!

Of course, you probably don’t require that much milk in your coffee, but think about how much coffee you drink in a day. For some people, it can be a problem. 

The other, perhaps more obvious issue for coffee drinkers is sugar. Many people need a little something to cut through the bitterness, and coffee shops are wise to this. 

All of those flavored syrups come with a price: carbs. 

Still, I haven’t met a true coffee lover willing to part with their beverage of choice, so my goal is to make it accessible again. 

This Keto tiramisu is a perfect way to get your coffee fix. 

How I Made It Keto

I just outlined how a cup of coffee can be rich with carbs, so imagine the dangers of a sweet dessert!

Fortunately, there are ways to get around the problem ingredients in this Italian classic. 

First, I used a Keto granulated sweetener instead of sugar. Erythritol, a sugar alcohol, is a good option. You’ll also need a powdered version — Swerve is one example. 

I like using ghee instead of dairy butter, as it tends to be better tolerated. For the flour, I replaced white flour with almond and coconut flour. 

To make the cream, you’ll want to have two refrigerated cans of coconut milk handy. Part of the coconut milk will harden; this is what you’ll use to make the cream. 

But, the featured ingredient is still coffee! You can use whatever strong coffee you like, and it will be the star of this dessert. Make sure to cool it before incorporating it into the other ingredients. 

For an extra kick, you can add a splash of brandy, but this is optional. 

I love how these little guys look in jars, but you could also make this recipe in a large traditional pan. 

More Keto Desserts

Let’s face it — some of us are just dessert aficionados. We like our cakes, ice cream, cookies, pies, and of course chocolate. 

That doesn’t have to keep you from Keto. 

There are tons of ways to satisfy your sweet tooth without straying from your low-carb diet. This page is full of amazing Keto desserts you’ll want to make again and again!

Keto Tiramisu Jars Recipe

Perfect little jars of the classic tiramisu with a coconut twist.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8-in pan with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the eggs and sweetener together with a hand mixer or stand mixer until light and fluffy.  
  3. Add the melted ghee and vanilla extract, then beat again.
  4. Mix the flours, baking powder, and salt in another bowl. Fold in the egg mixture.
  5. Pour dough into the pan and spread out evenly. Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  7. Meanwhile, prepare the coffee and set it aside to cool. Add in the brandy if using.
  8. Spoon out the solid coconut cream from the top of the chilled cans of coconut milk and add to a bowl. Beat with a mixer until light and fluffy – it will take a few minutes.
  9. Beat in the powdered sweetener gradually and add to taste.
  10. To assemble the jars, use a cookie cutter to cut out rounds of sponge. Dip the sponge rounds in the coffee for a few seconds and allow it to absorb some of the fluid. Place a round at the bottom of each jar. 
  11. Spoon a layer of coconut cream in to each jar followed by a sprinkle of cacao powder. 
  12. Repeat until you have used up the sponge and cream – you should have between 2-3 layers in each jar depending on the size of your jars. For the final layer, grate some dark chocolate on the top.
  13. Add the lids to the jars and place in the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
