At some point on a low carb journey, you do feel exhausted just because you cannot indulge in the finest of confectionary chocolate cakes out there. However, there are alternatives, in this post, I’ve compiled a list of some of the best low carb chocolate cake recipes that are gluten-free, low-carb and won’t kick you out of ketosis or ruin your diet plan.

Sex in a pan

Probably one of the most searched dessert on the internet, traditionally sex in a pan usually consists of six layers but this food blogger has made it easy for us by creating a four-layer recipe.

It’s a 10 ingredient recipe with an almond flour crust topped with a cream cheese layer, dark chocolate and a topping of whipped cream and some dark chocolate. Furthermore, it’s gluten FREE!

Chocolate mint pudding

Chocolate mint pudding reminds me of the good old After Eight chocolate days. There are two versions to this recipe, the dairy and the non-dairy one. When I’m making this pudding, I usually go for the dairy free one because I can add gelatin to it. Gelatin has a lot of benefits to it, it contains collagen which strengthens your bone, brightens up the skin and is good for the hairs and nails.

Diving back to the pudding, this pudding has a certain richness to it and it leaves a lingering minty sensation in your mouth that lets you ask for more.
