Dark Chocolate Souffle
OK, looking for a good Paleo decadent dessert, try this bad boy: DARK CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE!
It's actually quite easy to make too. Here's what it takes....
Step 1: melt some dark chocolate. I used organic dark chocolate (80% cacao) that had some pure cacao nibs in it. Wonderful just to eat too..... Melt it with some butter or if totally Paleo use some coconut oil, in a frying pan over a low-medium heat, that's what I opted for. Once melted and smooth, remove from heat. Allow to cool down while you prep the rest of the dish.
Step 2. Coat a few ramekins with some coconut oil and then dust with Stevia extract sweetener.
Step 3. whisk or beat 2 eggs whites until stiff. Once stiff add about 4-6 packets of stevia extra and whisk/beat again until stiff, again.
Step 4. mix 2 egg yolks into the melted chocolate.
Step 5. fold the whisked egg whites into the chocolate mixture.
Step 6. pour into ramekins and bake at 375 F for about 17-20 minutes.
I served mine with some coconut milk ice cream, vanilla for Austen and soy free, dairy free Green Tea flavor for me.
This is the type of thing, that if you are absolutely dying for a brownie like decadent dessert, will fill the bill.
Could also mix it up a bit. I've made banana souffles, blueberry, mixed berry, etc. It's all about what you fold into those egg whites. If you want the banana or other recipes peruse my blog evotraining.blogspot.com archives, I think they are posted in there somewhere. If you really want them, drop me a message and I will send them along to you.
