Stevia-sweetened baking chocolate chips have opened the door to enjoying the intoxicating flavor and texture of chocolate to healthy ladies everywhere! There is something magical in the deepness of flavor a good lava cake offers. Here you get all the taste and sensory experience with a big shot of protein to nourish your muscles as well as your taste buds.



  1. Whisk oat bran, protein, erythritol, cocoa, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; set aside. Add half the chocolate pieces  (10 g) and the ghee to a large mug or ramekin, sprayed with cooking spray. Microwave ghee and chocolate pieces at 50% power, stirring often, until melted, 15-20 seconds. Add oat bran mixture, egg, and vanilla to the mug, and mix until smooth and well combined.

  2. Microwave the mug contents at 50% power until it has doubled in size, 20-30 seconds. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate pieces over the cake. Microwave at 50% power until cake is firm but top is wet, 15 to 30 seconds (the cake may rise, but will not overflow). Let the cake rest for 2 minutes, then enjoy.

The timings are approximate. You really need to watch this cake while it cooks. Some people like their lava cake runny, so in that case, you’ll want to decrease times. Some like it firm which requires longer cooking time. Experiment. Either way, it’s delicious.
