GF Chocolate Power-Punch Cake (Low Carb)

When I want something, I want it now and am willing to substitute crazy things if necessary.

This cake is one I literally threw into a bowl on a whim.  It consists of nut flours you will grind yourself and also contains eggs and dairy. Unless you have something against any of those, this cake is very nutritious, full of fiber and protein. If you don't have all the ingredients, substitute the equivalent.

Perfect to take the place of lunch, it's high in protein and fiber while low on net carbs.


6 Brazil Nuts (finely ground)
1/8 cup walnuts (finely ground)
2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp Coconut Flour
1 Tbsp Flax Seeds  (ground)
1/4 tsp of Baking Powder
Stevia to sweeten to your taste
Pinch of salt
2 Tbsp. Heavy Cream
1 (round) Tbsp Ricotta Cheese
1/4 c. Coffee (brewed)
1 egg
1 Tbsp. Chocolate chips, if desired
1 tsp. Butter

Grind nuts as finely as you possibly can in whatever you have that can grind.  Food processor, coffee grinder, blender, etc...  Add all ingredients in large mug.  Stir well.  Add a bit of water, if it looks too dry and thick--it shouldn't be soupy.

Microwave in one minute intervals until completely cooked through (mines takes 3).  If necessary, turn it out onto a plate, once the sides have finished cooking and cook for another minute.  Now you have a nut cake that goes nicely with coffee. (Two servings).

Without chocolate chips, this comes to:  9 carbs, 4g fiber, 9g protein, 23 fat, 255 calories per serving. (Net carbs 5).
