Quick Chocolate Macadamia Cookie/Cake

LCHF Desserts

LCHF desserts using chocolate and nuts! Why did I make this? Good question! My wife likes this kind of stuff, but I do like this once in a while. Its good, but maybe too good. Do not eat all of this at once. Share with somebody. Or better yet, just eat a quarter and put the rest in the fridge and have a quarter over  the next 3 days! Its low in carbs, for what it is, but just take it easy and spread out the love over a few days!

Here we go:

Ingredients

  • 1 tbl coconut oil
  • 1 tbl butter
  • 1 whole egg
  • dash of vanilla
  • 2 tsp xylitol sugar, carbs 8g
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/8 high cacao chocolate bar, chopped, carbs 4g
  • 8 macadamia nuts, chopped, carbs 2g
  • 1/4 cup almond flour, carbs 6g
  • 1tbl coconut flour, carbs 5g
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  1. Melt the coconut oil and butter in a round au gratin dish
  2. Add the next 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk
  3. Add the chocolate and nuts and the melted butter and coconut oil to the bowl and mix
  4. Add the almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder to the bowl and whisk to combine
  5. Turn out mixture into the au gratin dish you used to melt the butter and oil
  6. Microwave for 90 seconds
  7. Let sit for a few minutes to set
  8. If you want a little crunch, you could put the dish in a toaster oven and broil for 2 minutes to brown the top. Be careful!
  9. Turn out onto a dish and enjoy!

So as you can see, total carbs is around 25g. So if you split into 4 servings, you’re good. DON’T eat it all at once! You’ll spike your blood sugar and fall out of ketosis. If you’re not worried about ketosis, all I can say is everything in moderation!

This is the au gratin dish I used.

Use a high cocoa dark chocolate for low carbs

I like to use xylitol or Swerve for sugar. Its lower carbs than regular sugar and doesn’t have a funny aftertaste like other low carb sugars.

Almond and coconut flours.

My wife and I ate just about half and saved the rest for later, or another day. We’ll see!

Please share your thoughts!
