Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free and Yeast-Free Guiltless Chocolate Lava Cake!
This is pretty much the only chocolate cake recipe I'll need for the rest of my life! :) It's simple, decadent and delicious. Rich and chocolatey, and like all Guiltless recipes, you still feel healthy and have tons of energy, sans tummy ache, after you're done!
The first time we made these little lava cakes, we accidentally baked them too long, which resulted in no lava or soft center. Still a yummy chocolate cake, but not exactly what I was going for. The second attempt resulted in a much gooey-er :) center, which was just perfect!
By using a ramekin, they are personal size, which makes everyone feel warm and fuzzy inside getting their own special lava cake!
I will definitely be serving these to loved ones this holiday season!
Recipe adapted from PaleoGrubs.com. It was so easy to just sub in our flour instead of the almond flour in their original recipe! I used a 1/1 ratio Guiltless Flour in place of Almond Flour.
Makes 4 Lava Cakes
4 oz dark chocolate
3 T organic, unrefined coconut oil
2 organic eggs
2 T raw, local honey
1/2 t vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
1 T cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 4 ramekins with non-stick spray and dust with cocoa powder.
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a large bowl in the microwave (or on the stove top). Stir to combine and set aside.
In another large bowl, combine the eggs, honey, vanilla and sea salt. Mix with a hand blender on medium high speed for 4-5 minutes until frothy. Slowly mix in the melted chocolate to the frothy egg mixture. Slowly add in the Guiltless Flour and cocoa powder to the bowl and fold all of the ingredients together.
Divide the batter equally among the four ramekins. Place them on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes until set (mine are ready at 12 mins). Serve warm.
*Optional: Serve in ramekin or place plate over ramekin and flip over to release onto plate and serve that way. // Melt extra chocolate and coconut oil for drizzle. // Top with fresh berries, nuts or sprinkles. //
