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
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
70 drops liquid sucaralose (like EZ Sweetz)
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!
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.
