Coconut Chocolate Chip Microwave Cake: Gluten, Sugar and Grain Free

This individual-sized microwave cake is the ideal treat when you’re looking for something to satiate a throbbing sweet tooth. This cake tastes a bit like a Mounds candy bar. It’s absolutely delicious and filled with fiber and healthy fats with no sugar and no grains. It takes about three minutes to whip up, so it’s easy to make any time of the day!

Coconut Chocolate Chip Microwave Cake: Gluten, Sugar and Grain Free 
 
Ingredients:
 
  • 2 T almond flour
  • 1 T coconut flour
  • 1 T pure cocoa powder
  • 1 T shredded unsweetened coconut  (plus extra for topping)
  • 1 T melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 T Swerve granulated sweetener (or erythritol)
  • 5 drops liquid stevia extract
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 T unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1 T sugar-free dark chocolate chips
Directions:
 
Preparing this cake is very simple. Simply mix all of the ingredients except chocolate chips and shredded coconut until smooth. Once a batter is formed, stir in the coconut and chocolate chips. Spoon the batter into a lightly greased microwave-safe bowl or dish (I used a 4×4 square tartlet). Microwave on high for 60 to 90 seconds or until cake is just firm. Top with a bit of shredded coconut and cool for a minute before eating.

It takes a lot of trial and error to find the "right" fit for a low carb recipe. I have made some ... different low carb desserts. You don't need to go through that! I made a list of my favorite ingredients as well as what stores you can find them at. Enjoy!

Eating healthy, for me, is about more than weight loss like it used to be. It’s about controlling my blood sugar levels and obtaining normal–or relatively normal–hormone levels. I still struggle to lose weight efficiently, but eating a wheat, sugar and gluten free diet helps to control some of the problems I’ve encountered with these health issues of mine.
