Paleo Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

- Serves 4 cakes -


  • 1/2 cup grass-fed butter

  • 4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate

  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup

  • 1 1/4 cups paleo powdered sugar

  • 2 whole, pasture-raised eggs

  • 3 pasture-raised yolks

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3/4 cup blanched almond flour

  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour


  • Homemade whipped cream

  • Organic mint and raspberries


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F, and grease four, 8oz oven-safe ramekins. Set them aside on a baking sheet.

  2. Melt together your unsweetened chocolate, butter, and maple syrup until mixed.

  3. Next, in a food processor, process 1 1/2 cups of organic coconut sugar, and 3 tsp of tapioca flour until fluffy, lighter in color, and powdered sugar-like.

  4. Add in 1 1/2 cups of that homemade powdered sugar into your melted chocolate/butter mixture. Once mixed, add in your 2 whole eggs + the yolks and vanilla. Mix to combine.

  5. Lastly, add in the flours. Pour filling till about 3/4 full into the ramekin. Put the ramekins back on the baking sheet for easiest transfer. Bake in oven for 13 minutes, and let it set outside the oven for 1-2 minutes.

  6. With a knife, loosen the edges of the cake around the dish, place a little plate on top, and flip the cake upside down onto itself. It may take a bit of shaking for it to come out, but it will!

  7. Serve with whipped cream and berries (and mint if you’re feelin’ extra fancy!) Enjoy!!
