Recipe type: Sinless Dessert
Serves: 2 cakes
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup 72% dark chocolate bar, chopped (4.6 oz / 130g)
  • 1 large, organic egg plus 1 large, organic egg yolk, room temperature
  • 3.5 tablespoons unrefined, organic coconut oil (about 50g)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tablespoons blanched almond flour (14g)
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder (5g)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon instant coffee powder (this helps bring out the chocolate flavor; it doesn’t add any coffee flavor)
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and grease two 6 oz. ramekins with a little coconut oil and dust with some raw cacao powder to help prevent any sticking and set them on a cookie pan.
  2. Next, add the chopped dark chocolate and coconut oil in a heat-safe bowl and melt it in the microwave or a double broiler. If using a microwave be sure it doesn’t burn, using 15 second intervals and stirring after each one. Heat until just melted; you don’t want it to be hot since we will be adding it to the bowl with eggs later.
  3. In medium bowl, add the egg and egg yolk, maple syrup/honey, vanilla, espresso powder, cinnamon, and salt and mix with a hand mixer for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the melted chocolate and coconut oil to the egg mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until everything is incorporated.
  5. Thereafter, sprinkle the almond flour and raw cacao powder over the chocolate mixture and gently fold in—do NOT stir—until fully combined.
  6. Then, pour the batter equally in two 6 oz. ramekins and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the outskirts of the cakes slightly pull away from the sides of the ramekins and the centers are set, yet still soft.
  7. When finished, removed from the oven and let them sit for 5 minutes.
  8. After 5 minutes, gently run a knife around the edges of the cakes to help with the release!
  9. Lastly, place a plate over the top of the ramekin and gently turn over so that the plate is on the counter and lift up the ramekin—the cake should (and will—you got this) come right out. Proceed with the second one!
  10. Serve these immediately so you can rave over their warm, delicate, and gooey interiors!
Notes
These will also last for a few days in the fridge! You can either eat them cold (their texture is like fudge!) or you can reheat them in the oven or microwave for ANOTHER fresh out of the oven lava cake experience. :)
