Let’s get started!
HOW TO MAKE KETO CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE
First, in a ramekin or mug…melt the butter in the microwave for 10 seconds. Swirl the butter around the inside of the ramekin so it creates a non-stick coating.
Add the almond flour, swerve, cocoa powder, baking powder and beaten egg to the ramekin.
Make sure to mix well!
Now you can place your chocolate squares in the center.
I used 4 little “squares” of a Lily’s chocolate bar.
Microwave on high or 60 seconds, being sure not to overcook.
We don’t want that because then your cake will be dry.
Carefully turn the ramekin upside down onto a plate and let the cake fall out.
You may need to help it a little with a spoon.
Sprinkle the top of the keto lava cake with powdered sweetener if desired.
You know I’m all about keeping things simple! It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

ALTERNATIVES TO ALMOND FLOUR
Sunflower seed flour is a 1 for 1 substitute for almond flour and it can be found on Amazon. Coconut flour can also be used but you would only use 1 Tablespoon.
