Low Carb Chocolate Chia Cake

Low Carb Chocolate Chia Cake

This rich, moist little cake is similar to my Low Carb Frosted Chia Brownie.  It is really filling, so it can be 1 or 2 delicious servings.

Low Carb Chocolate Chia Cake

2 tablespoons melted salted butter
1 large egg
1/3 cup powdered erythritol
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder*
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon Fiberfit Liquid
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milled or ground chia seeds

Chocolate Frosting

1 tablespoon melted salted butter
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder*
1 tablespoon powdered erythritol
1 teaspoon Fiberfit Liquid
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/16 teaspoon salt

Grease a small microwave-safe bowl.  Set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, mix cake ingredients well before and after adding chia seeds.  Let sit 10 minutes.

Pour into prepared bowl and microwave on high for 3 minutes and 30 seconds.  Let sit 5 minutes to finish cooking.

Meanwhile, mix frosting ingredients well.  When cake is finished cooking, invert on a saucer and top with frosting.

There are about 8 net carbs in the entire recipe.

* I used Hershey’s Natural Unsweetened Cocoa Powder in this recipe (not dark cocoa powder).
