Indulging in a sumptuous chocolate cake is no longer a guilty pleasure when you have a healthy, easy-to-make option at your fingertips. Our Keto Chocolate Cake recipe brings together the best of both worlds – a luscious treat that not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also aligns with a keto, low-carb, gluten-free, and even vegan lifestyle. Elevate your dessert experience with this culinary marvel that uses minimal ingredients, ensuring a delightful fusion of flavor and nutrition.

Two Options for Everyone:

This Keto Chocolate Cake offers versatility with two delectable variations to suit various dietary preferences. The flourless version, perfect for vegans and those avoiding gluten, relies on the wholesome goodness of rolled oats and sweet potatoes. On the other hand, the keto and low-carb option utilizes coconut flour, making it 100% sugar-free and an excellent choice for those following a carb-conscious lifestyle.

Everyone needs a healthy chocolate cake recipe which is easy, quick and needs minimal ingredients. As someone who enjoys eating cake a little too often for my own good, I know that using healthy, filling ingredients will make me feel a little less guilty, and part of my everyday diet!

This comes with two options- A flourless chocolate cake without eggs (the vegan and gluten-free one!) and a keto chocolate cake, made with coconut flour.

The eggless, vegan and gluten-free version is based around rolled oats (flourless!) and sweet potato, giving it the perfect texture. It is also lower in fat and high in fiber.

The keto and low carb version is made using coconut flour and is 100% sugar free, but you’d never tell. It is slightly more dense than the flourless version, but nothing some smooth, creamy frosting can’t help!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/180 degrees Celcius. Line and grease an 8 x 8-inch square pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  1. In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine all your ingredients and blend until a thick batter remains. Ensure you regularly scrape down the sides to ensure all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  2. Pour the batter in the lined pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a skewer comes out the center. Allow cooling in the pan for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Once cool, make your frosting and refrigerate to firm up slightly. Once smooth and spreadable, pour over your cake and refrigerate. Cut into slices.

Recipe Notes

* If the batter is too thick, add an extra tablespoon or two of milk of choice. Unsweetened almond or coconut milk works best.
