  4. Microwave for 1 minute just until the outside is set, it should still wiggle in the middle significantly. If the edges aren’t set cook in 15 second intervals until set.
    Tips for cooking in the oven: If you don't have a microwave, I suggest you make 4-8 servings at once. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F and cook for about 12-15 minutes or until cooked in the centre. Keto Single Serve Chocolate Lava Cake
  5. Let stand for 1-2 minutes before flipping onto a plate to serve. Serve immediately.

I made two of these desserts tonight for me and my sweetheart. They were so delicious and so much better than the mug cakes I’ve made that use almond meal. My only question is how many calories in one dessert?  I looked everywhere on the posted dessert and could not find total calories. Thanks so much!

Thank you for your lovely feedback, Marie! Calories and other macros are listed in the table at the top of the post. I hope this helps!

Have you considered polialcohols from Swerve in total carbs? I know that oftentimes polialcohols are not counted, but I also know that they can actually impact blood glucose in some people and they have to consider them someway depending by the kind of polialcohol or other factors; in my case, for example, xylitol is forbidden because it has a strong impact on my BG; teh same for inulin; erythritol is quite neutral if blended with stevia/monk fruit. And doing very low carb/keto for therpeutic reason I have to count total carbs. So I'd really apreciate if you could let me know how did you calculate total carbs in this recipe. I'm not asking "personal advice", just trying to understand your method and asking for simple information, for the rest I am totally responsible for myself and I know how to balance my diet according to my personal needs 😉 Thank you!

Hi Roberta, I count all sweeteners but they vary based on their impact on blood sugar and calories. For example, sorbitol should be avoided as it significantly affects blood sugar, but Erythritol has zero impact on blood sugar and virtually zero calories. I think with some of them it it's best to try and see how they affect you. I personally avoid Xylitol (digestive issues) but others are fine with it. Swerve is made with Erythritol and FOS. There isn't a standardised way to calculate carbs from sugar alcohols. So the way I calculate net (effective) carbs is by counting all calories as carbs, even if the sweetener has no effect on blood sugar, ie I count 5 g net carbs per 100 g of Erythritol while most people would count it as "0"). Better safe than sorry 😊

Compliments Lauren! I love recipes without almond and coconut flour (they are so processed!).

How can organic ground almonds be "processed"? Isn't coconut flour just very fine dehydrated coconut pulp after extracting coconut oil? Unless there are other types of almond and coconut flour... am I missing something? Because if that's the case everything that requires heat is "processed".

I don't have any issues with almonds and coconut but if I eat almond or coconut flour I have a stomach ache so thanks agsin Lauren (and Martina)
