Today I’m going to share a recipe that is really quite delicious and will satisfy that chocolate craving without crashing your diet or knocking you out of ketosis. Here’s the ingredient list.
Missing from the above picture are the Hershey’s Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips and the Stevia confectioner’s sweetener. Both are optional, but I would definitely include the chocolate chips for a richer flavor.
- 2 TBSP Almond Flour
- 2 TBSP Coconut Flour
- 2 TBSP Hershey’s Cocoa
- 2 TBSP Melted Butter
- 2 TBSP Hershey’s Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
- 1 1/2 TBSP Stevia Granular Sweetener
- 1/2 TSP Baking Powder
- 1/4 TSP Vanilla Extract
- 1 Large Egg
I’ve included pictures of each step and each ingredient, just in case you want to use the exact same product. We’ll mix all the dry ingredients first.
In a small bowl, add 2 TBSP of almond flour.
Add 1 1/2 TBSP of the granulated Stevia sweetener. Stevia is one of the few sweeteners that does not affect your insulin levels or cholesterol.
Add 1/2 TSP of baking powder.
Add 2 TBSP of Hershey’s Cocoa.
Add 2 TBSP of coconut flour.
Use a whisk to mix the dry ingredients thoroughly.
Now it’s time to add the wet ingredients. Add 1/4 TSP of vanilla extract.
Add 2 TBSP of melted butter. Melt the butter in the microwave on “defrost”. Otherwise, it may explode all over the inside of your microwave and make a mess (yeah, I did that).
Add 1 large egg. We use our own eggs, which are free-range and have a much richer flavor. I haven’t tried a duck egg with this recipe, but supposedly duck eggs are favored over chicken eggs for cakes.
Use a spoon to stir in the wet ingredients. They will just gum up the whisk (yeah, I did that too.)
Now, stir in 2 TBSP Hershey’s Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips. This ingredient, in my opinion, is a MUST for this recipe. Trust me.
Spoon the ingredients into a coffee mug and microwave on high for about a minute and 10 seconds.
When you take it out of the microwave, sprinkle a little bit of the Stevia confectioner’s sweetener on top for a little extra bang. Here’s the finished product. Enjoy!
