    Dreadfully behind the times, @Brunneria, and a disaster as a trendsetter, whereas you are Awesome in having tried an Avolatte. Did it not spill out of the shell thingy?! I Am A Failed Hipster. :mad::D (Actually, can us girls be hipsters? I've only seen blokes described as such.) That pumpkin pie spice latte looks yummy, and I'm thinking of p-p spice in a mock-up hot cross bun (if I can find the stuff) - have you got round to making them this year?

    Tried weighing it this morning.

    It looks as though the heaped teaspoon can be anything from 10 grams upwards.
    If the butter is firm and I am enthusiastic it could be twice that much.

    It is in fact very easy to eat in the frozen state. I too, also prefer to eat rather than drink the "bullet proof" ingredients.

    It is TOO easy to eat. I made your bulletproof squares yesterday @LouWilk059, with unsweetened desiccated coconut. This is now my new BFF choc fat-bomb wotsit, over the choc peanut squares from dietdoctor. I put a bit of salt into the mix and it really is fab. It looks like freezing them isn't going to help much with not scoffing the whole lot :angelic:

    Glad you like it! I keep it in freezer because "out of sight, out of mind". Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    My husband made too much low-carb ganache for my birthday cake last week, so we poured the remainder into mini-muffin silicon moulds and stuck it in the freezer. A few hours later and we had popped out loads of giant chocolate "buttons". Two of them in a cup of de3cent black coffee creates a lovely mocha!

    I use almond or coconut flour or flaxseed and its yummy.
    Word of warning about bulletproof (I make it with coconut oil and butter btw), if you overdo the oil you may get what Dave Asprey (the inventor) calls 'disaster pants' (rousers in English but would apply to underwear too!). Just go easy. Other than that its good stuff if it keeps you full up without raising your bgs!

    Oh... my... life! I just tried your bulletproof Marmite @Mel dCP... It's amazing! What a revelation! Thank you so much! (I'm going for a lie-down now to see if I can get over my over-use of exclamation marks!)

    I do a BP hot chocolate, Almond Milk, raw cacao, cinnamon, butter, coconut oil and a small amount of 90% dark chocolate for added sweetness. Warm it up in a pan and then blend. Very creamy and great during the recent cold spells.
