Thick & Creamy Low Carb Caramel Sauce
"Can you figure out how to make a keto version of caramel"?
This has been my # 1 request this fall. Right next to my Keto Brownie Recipe! I've created a caramel that is thick and indulgent. It's amazing drizzled over just about anything.
I have used just a touch of real molasses in this recipe to get the flavor full and tasting more like caramel. The Macros turned out beautifully at 90% Fat ~ 8% Carb ~ 2% Protein.
This recipe yields a thick and creamy caramel sauce that hardens in the fridge.
A small spoonful of this satisfying caramel experience that you can indulge in while staying on your low carb or ketogenic diet.
Because this low carb caramel hardens in the fridge, it would make a great holiday caramel recipe.
This low carb caramel sauce yields 4 ounces which is 24 one teaspoon servings.

Thick & Creamy Low Carb Caramel Sauce
- Melt butter in a 3 quart medium stainless steel saucepan. Cook the butter until it begins to turn golden in color and you notice little flecks. You'll smell the butter beginning to brown.
- Add Molasses and Bocha Sweet to the mixture and cook for 2 minutes. The mixture will look "seperated" and odd at this point. Don't panic! It's supposed to look like this.
- Turn off heat and add cream and xantham gum. Whisk/stir and turn heat back on. Allow to boil for 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add 1 tsp vanilla extract. Stir until combined and pour into a heat-safe container such as a small mason jar. Once cooled, store tightly covered in the fridge.
Tips for Keto Caramel Sauce
The molasses in this recipe serves two purposes. First, it adds the “brown sugar” flavor that caramel has.
The other reason behind the molasses is getting the sauce to set up and harden in the fridge. You can make this without molasses, but don’t expect it to set up the same way 🙂
- Bocha Sweet
- Liquid Stevia Drops
- Blackstrap Molasses
