Keto Slow Cooker Molten Lava Cake


Simply mix and pour your way to a chocolatey and deliciously fluffy keto lava cake.

This easy molten chocolate lava cake will satisfy your indulgent cravings without breaking any keto rules. You’ll layer on the chocolatey flavors with raw cacao powder and sugar-free chocolate chips, and keep things sweet without the carbs thanks to monk fruit. Unsweetened almond milk and almond flour add a subtle nuttiness.

This lava cake couldn’t be easier to throw together. You’ll combine your wet and dry ingredients separately, bringing them together with a sifter. After that, simply transfer the batter to the slow cooker and let it do all the work.

Time Matters

Some people like the ooey-gooey center of a lava cake. Others like a moist, cake-like lava cake. The difference between the two is simply the amount of time it spends in the slow cooker.

If you’re going for that pudding-like center, then stick to the lower end of the cooking time. For a firmer cake, let it go a little longer.

Grease The Slow Cooker

Even though your slow cooker keto insert is non-stick, add an extra light layer of coconut oil. This is helpful for serving, especially if you’re trying to keep the cake intact when removing it from the pan.

Helpful Tips To Get You Started:

  • Don’t skip the sifting. Sifting the dry ingredients together not only produces a uniform consistency but also helps to evenly incorporate all the ingredients throughout.
  • Stir lightly. This batter doesn’t need a lot of time with the whisk to come together. Mix until just incorporated.
