This gluten & dairy free Decadent Lava Cake is the perfect dessert for any holiday or date night. As our pregnancy is almost half-way (whaaaaaaaat? crazy!), we've been scheduling many date nights. .
When it comes to date nights & culinary delights, I try to cook up a special dinner and bake something delicious that is gluten-free and dairy-free, (and when I can, refined sugar free) because it’s hard to go out with a limited diet. My husband and I usually stay in and have a picnic by the fire and then go out to do something fun like catch a movie, go to the arcade or check into to a local resort for a weekend staycation. For tips on how to have an affordable getaway, check out my post on budget-friendly retreats.
This amazingly delicious gluten and dairy free lava cake has a delicious and warm ooey-gooey surprise inside and looks extra fancy when topped with a light sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar.
Serve warm with a side of dairy-free vanilla ice cream, fresh organic berries or a glass of bubbly champagne.
4 oz. dairy free dark chocolate
2 tbsp. honey
½ tsp organic vanilla extract
1 tbsp. almond flour
3 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. sugar-free cocoa powder
dash of sea salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease four small ramekins with dairy-free butter or coconut oil spray and give a light dusting with cocoa powder. Melt dairy-free chocolate with coconut oil in a small sauce pan and set aside.
In a medium sized bowl mix eggs, honey, vanilla and sea salt. Add almond flour and cocoa powder and fold ingredients together until smooth. Divide the batter among the ramekins and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes and serve warm.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
