Disclaimer: The cookies used in this recipe were complimentary, but the opinions in the post are my own.
Have you tried the soft and chewy Nui cookies? Although Nui has been selling keto cookies for a while, they have changed their recipe and it’s fabulous!
In October 2019, the company made a bold move by discontinuing their crisp cookies and launching a brand new product. No longer are the cookies hard and crumbly. They are now soft baked!
I’ve always preferred soft cookies over crisp ones so I was super excited to try these new low carb cookies. I was even able to test the cookies during development so I knew they were going to be fantastic.
Now that I’ve had a few weeks to experiment with the cookies, I’ve created a new recipe that I’m sure will become one of your favorite desserts. It’s a keto friendly tiramisu trifle recipe that’s made in single sized servings!
The recipe uses two Nui Snickerdoodle cookies so it has a nice touch of cinnamon in the mix along with the coffee, cocoa, and rum flavors. But the best part is that it’s a quick and easy dessert to make.
Nui Cookies as a Keto Substitute for Ladyfingers
What I love about the new cake like Nui cookies is that they make the perfect substitute for ladyfingers if you want to make a simple coffee flavored tiramisu dessert.
The great thing about this low carb gluten free treat is that there’s no baking involved. So it doesn’t take much time at all to put together.
After brewing a strong coffee or espresso, simply brush it on to two of the cookies that have been cut into pieces. This is what I like to use instead of coffee soaked lady fingers;.
You can add in some rum liqueur or extract in the coffee as well. But I prefer to add that flavor into the mascarpone cheese mixture.
Making a No Cook Filling
For this simple tiramisu recipe, I make a simple mixture of mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, and vanilla monk fruit sweetener instead of a custard. I also like to add in dark rum to the filling.
The cheese, sweetener, and rum are combined in one mixing bowl while the heavy cream is whipped in another until stiff peaks form. Vanilla extract should be added if a plain sweetener is used. Then the whipped cream is blended into the sweetened cheese mixture.
How to layer tiramisu in mini trifle dishes
- Place three pieces of soaked cookies into the bottom of a mini trifle dessert dish. Repeat for the other three dishes.
- Divide the mascarpone filling between the four dessert dishes.
- Top each dish off with two cookie pieces and then sprinkle cocoa powder and ground cinnamon on top.
Tiramisu Trifle Recipe Variations
Although I like to make this low-carb low-sugar dessert in mini size, the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to fit in a standard trifle bowl. You can also use the Nui chocolate chip cookies instead of the snickerdoodle ones. Or, toss in some sugar free chocolate chips!
If you can’t find mascarpone cheese, you can replace it with eight ounces of cream cheese. But you’ll want to add in an extra ¼ cup of whipping cream to balance it out. You can also add in a couple tablespoons of sour cream to get more of a mascarpone flavor.
