Ingredients

    1 cup flax meal (golden flax meal is ok, too)
    4 tablespoons coconut flour
    4 tablespoons almond meal flour
    1 cup finely chopped pecans
    2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 vegetable oil
    1/4 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup water
    3 eggs
    2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    70 drops liquid sucaralose (like EZ Sweetz)

Tips

If you're too generous when measuring your batter into the ramekin, your batter may overflow the top a bit as it cooks.
Yes, the vinegar is necessary. It works with the baking soda for leavening since the 'flours' are quite heavy.
My microwave is very powerful, so 6 quite full ramekins were done in 4 minutes. (Only the center one needed another 30 seconds.)
The 'topping' is not included in the carb count!


Directions

Whisk all dry ingredients together. Whisk all wet ingredients together. Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix well.
Allow to sit a minute or two while spraying 6-7 ramekins/small pyrex dishes with pan spray.
Measure a scant 1/2 cup of batter into each ramekin.
Place all ramekins in your microwave spaced evenly. Depending on the power of your microwave, you'll need 4-7 minutes of cooking time. The top will be a bit shiny and slightly sticky until they cool for at least 2 minutes. Wait for the cooling time before determining if they're done. (Think fudgy brownies when cooking!)
Invert onto a plate and eat with sucralose-sweetened whipped cream or mascarpone.
