faux "fig newton" blueberry flavor

this is truly one of my proudest moment making a lowcarb recipe, we all know how hard to make a lowcarb treats add to that, that this is gluten free and grain free. i hope you will love this as i loved it. and please dont forget to tag me or please give me some sort of credit for this and if your going to adapt this recipe please mention that you adapt this from me. thank you and enjoy!

2/3 cup almond flour ( honeyville brand)
1/4 heaping cup of ricotta cheese
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp of parmesan cheese
2 tbsp of coconut flour
1/2 tsp of xanthan gum
4 tbsp of physillium husk powder
pinch of salt
4 tbsp of erythritol or any sweetener of your choice
1 tsp of baking powder
2 whole eggs
2 tbsp of warm water
2 tbsp of frozen cube into small pieces unsalted butter divide into 2
1/4 cup sliver almonds divide into 2

 3 oz of creme cheese melted divide into 2
8 tbsp of chia bluberry jam divide into 2 ( see my previous post for the recipe) or any lowcarb sugarfree jam that you like

mix everything except for the butter and sliver almonds, mix everything till your dough thickens
divide your dough into two equal parts
get your 1 tbsp of frozen cube butter and put it in the food processor with one of the dough then blitz till it all mix up
put  one of your dough in a flat surface on top of a cling wrap and then cover the top  again of another cling wrap before rolling your dough, this is important so it will not stick and it will be easy to fold later
making sure that there is plastic cling wrap on top of the dough start rolling
i forgot to measure how long and wide you need to roll but just keep in mind that you need to get six serving in one dough
after you flatten it melt 1.5 oz of creme cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds till it soften .
spread it in the middle like in the picture
spread 4 tbsp of chia jam on top of the creme cheese
now i got fancy with mine so i braided it but i dont think its necessary because i cover it with sliver almonds anyways haha
now first using the bottom plastic wrap as your guide fold  both ends first then fold  both sides
gently press to flatten it a little
transfer to a cookie sheet with a silicone lining or parchment paper be very gentle with it
top with half of the sliver almonds then press it gently to the dough
repeat the process with the other dough
bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes

each dough will yield 6 servings so a total of 12 servings. each one serving has 2.3g net carbs. adjust your carb count according to your own ingredients
