How to make healthy Keto chocolate cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a 9×9 inch cake pan with parchment paper. 
  • Mix dry ingredients: In a bowl, stir together the almond flour, erythritol, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Mix wet ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, milk, and vanilla until smooth.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients: Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined and no dry spots remain.
  • Bake: Transfer to the pan and bake for 24-28 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool. 
  • Make the cake balls: Once cooled, remove the cake from pan and use your hands to crumble the cake into small pieces and then transfer them to a large bowl stand-alone mixer. Melt ¼ cup of the chocolate and add it into the cake crumbles and mix until combined. The mixture should resemble dough. Use a cookie scooper to make 24-25 cake balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Coat cake balls with chocolate: Melt the remainder of chocolate with 2 teaspoons of coconut oil and drizzle over each cake ball. Chill until chocolate is solid.

Is Flourless Chocolate cake gluten-free

Yes. All cakes that are made without flour, or use almond or coconut flour are Gluten-free. There are also gluten-free flour options available at most grocery stores so you don’t have to skip on recipes that call for flour so long as you use gluten-free flour. Alternatively, these keto chocolate cake balls are not only low in carbs, but they are also gluten-free.

How long is chocolate cake good for

These keto chocolate cake recipes are good in the fridge for 5-7 days. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months and thawed when ready to eat. Store in an airtight container.

Which chocolate is best for melting

Candy melts are best for coating desserts like cake balls. Unless they are sugar-free, they won’t be suitable for making these keto chocolate cake balls. Using chocolate chips is just as good but you have to add some sort of shortening such as coconut oil.

    These look and sound delicious – mostly. 😉 I don’t care for the taste of coconut oil in foods. Is there a different oil that can be substituted in these?

      If you are doing strict keto, butter is fine to use. You can also use vegetable oil or any other bland tasting oil.
