Delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake
I started to research some keto desserts and came across what seemed like plenty of options to choose from. After experimenting with some low carb dessert recipes and quite a few failures, I decided to instead start with what was already a hit: Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake!!
I was craving chocolate cake. Two attempts to tweak this recipe to get it perfect! And boy is it good! I don't normally eat this late but for this gooey, chocolatey, peanut butter goodness I will! 2g of carbs per serving.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake (Makes 2)
Macros for 1: 243 Calories, 19g Fats, 2g Carbs, 9g Protein
- 1 oz Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate
- 2-3 tbsp Peanut Butter
- 2 tbsp Butter
- 1 tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 large Egg
- 2 tbsp Swerve
- 5-7 liquid Stevia (or an extra tsp of erythritol)Drops
- 1 tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 2 tsp Coconut Flour
- 1/4 tsp Baking powder
Combine bakers chocolate and butter and melt in a microwave safe bowl in bursts of 30 seconds.
Add cream, egg and stevia drops to the chocolate and butter mixture. Set aside.
Combine all dry ingredients: Swerve, cocoa powder, coconut flour and baking powder into chocolate/butter mixture until you get a smooth uniform thick batter.
Separate the batter into two halves(one for each cake). Then take the batter for one cake and pour half the batter into your greased ramekin.
Place the peanut butter right in the centre without allowing it to run to the edges.
Pour the second half over the peanut butter. Repeat for the second cake.
Bake in a 400-degree oven for 13-15 minutes.
You'll know it's done when the edges have firmed and the centre is still a little jiggly/not fully cooked seeming.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
