A financier is a french pastry. There are a few different stories about why they are called financiers, with one being, that they resemble little gold bars. I am not sure about that, but these Keto Financiers are a wonderful little treat. A Keto Financier is great treat that is different from the typical keto cheesecake cupcakes. They make a dessert that is crunchy, buttery, and great tasting.
What is a financier? The easiest answer is, a financier is a French almond cake made with “beurre noisette”, which is a fancy way to say browned butter.
A keto financier pairs nicely with homemade keto whipped cream.
Note about muffin tins:
If you are using a muffin tin to make these, it is probably a good idea to use silicone liners. If you use paper liners, they will stick to the paper, and be very hard to remove. You can use a well greased muffin tin. If you make these financiers often, it is well worth investing on a silicone financier mould. They are well worth it.
