These Keto molten chocolate lava soufflés are rich, moist, and gooey, perfect to be enjoyed straight out of the oven.

They make the perfect dessert for when you have guests coming over but don't have much time to make an impressive time-consuming dessert.

Is chocolate lava soufflé Keto?

Generally, lava cakes or lava soufflés are not Keto-friendly because they are made using white flour and processed sugar, which are high in carbs. To make chocolate lava soufflé Keto, this recipe uses High-fat, Low-carb ingredients such as egg yolks and butter. These Keto molten chocolate lava soufflés contain only 3g of carbs per ramekin. They taste just as delicious without the extra carbs.

Can you make this Keto molten chocolate lava soufflé in a mug instead of a ramekin?

Yes, you can bake this Keto soufflé in a mug. Since mug cakes usually bake in the microwave, using an oven for these soufflés is the best choice. Because baking in a mug in the microwave could result in uneven cooking of the soufflé and difficulty getting a melty center, ensure that the mug is oven-safe. A tip to get a melty center is to add a few dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate squares in the center of the soufflé before baking.

What to serve with these Keto molten chocolate lava soufflés?

There is no wrong way to serve these Keto molten lava soufflés. They can be served in several ways and will still turn out delicious. These Keto soufflés pair well with Keto ice cream, specifically vanilla-flavored ice cream, since the soufflés are decadent and rich in flavor. They can also be served with fresh berries on top, such as strawberries or raspberries. Another good topping option is a drizzle of runny peanut butter or Keto-friendly caramel sauce.

How do you store these Keto molten lava soufflés?

Once the soufflés are completely cooled, cover each ramekin tightly with plastic wrap. Transfer to the refrigerator for up to 3 days. The soufflé will solidify in the middle while in the fridge; therefore, ensure to reheat before enjoying. To reheat these Keto molten chocolate lava soufflés, remove the plastic wrap and warm them in a preheated oven for about 5 minutes at 350F. You can also reheat these scuffles in the microwave. Remove the plastic wrap, place the ramekin on a plate and cover it with a damp paper towel. Microwave for about 20-30 seconds.

Recipe Steps

23 min

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400F. Chop the chocolate bar into small pieces. In a microwave-safe, add the chocolate pieces together with the salted butter. Microwave for 45 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted. Once done, set aside to cool completely.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, grease four small ramekins with some butter. To the chocolate and butter mixture, add the swerve sweetener and egg yolks. Combine using a whisk until well incorporated.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    To a stand mixer bowl, add the egg whites. Whip the egg whites on medium speed using the whisk attachment until stiff peaks form. Then, gently fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture using a spatula. Add the rest of the egg whites and gently fold until fully incorporated.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Divide the batter among the four greased ramekins using an ice cream scoop. This ensures that each ramekin has an equal amount of the batter hence equal net carbs per ramekin serving. Gently smooth the top of the batter using the back of a spoon to get an even top once baked.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Transfer the ramekins to the oven. Turn down the oven to 350F. Let the soufflés bake for 7-8 minutes until the edges are firm and the center is still soft and molten. Allow the soufflés to cook for about 1 minute once baked before serving. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream if desired.

    WARNING!!! May trigger a carbohydrate binge that could last for weeks. Is it really worth it?

      I used Swerve Confectioners sugar. And it was really good but I would cook it for 12 mins next time.

            The revised version has too much sweetener. I could have done with 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup. A bit overpowering.

              Why are there two butter ingredients with two different amounts ? Which one is the correct one to use?

                Grease ramekins with small amount of butter. Use larger amount in batter.

              I made these today and followed the instructions exactly as posted. LOVED THEM! I did not get any egg taste at all. I didn’t have the icing sugar replacement but used monk fruit sweetener with erythritol. I had to leave them about 3 minutes more in the oven (I used normal baking, maybe if I had used convection baking mode the 7-8 mins would have been enough?, not sure). Anyway, liked them as did my family.

                I used 100% baking chocolate and extra serve, it came out very chocolatey but I over cooked it. Still tasted great!
