Whip up two chocolate lava cakes for your Valentine. Lectin free, sugar free and sinfully rich in flavor, this dessert is the best way to share your love.
I can't think of a better way to share love with your sweety than with a rich, dark chocolate dessert for two. These Lectin Free Gourmet lava cakes have something extra. In addition to the molten cake in the center, they also have a tunnel of pure melted chocolate love inside. This elegant treat is easy to make and bakes up in seconds in the microwave.
To get the beautiful texture of this flourless dessert, we use Marigold Collagen Peptides instead of any lectin free flour. The collagen is made from happy grassfed cows and has a great amino acid profile. So, eat these sinfully rich lava cakes and knowing you're not just indulging your taste buds, but growing beautiful hair and nails at the same time.

Let's get to the recipe.
LFG Tunnel of Love Lava Cakes
1 oz Unsweetened Chocolate Chips
1 Tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
1 Tbsp Marigold Collagen Peptides
1 Tbsp Brown Swerve
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Pastured Egg
1 or 2 squares of your favorite dark chocolate bar
1 tsp Grassfed Ghee (to grease ramekins)
Step 1: Melt Chocolate Chips
In a medium bowl, melt chocolate chips in microwave for 1 minute until glossy.
Step 2: Add Dry Ingredients
To the melted chocolate chips, add cacao powder, Marigold Collagen Peptides, and Brown Swerve. Mix well.
Step 3: Add Wet Ingredients
To the chocolate mixture, add vanilla and egg. Whisk well until smooth.
Step 4: Microwave
Pour into 4 oz ramekins greased with ghee. Now here's the tunnel of love part. Break up a couple squares of your favorite chocolate bar. I used Lindt Intense Orange. Insert the pieces of chocolate into the center of the lava cakes. Then microwave both cakes together for 60-90 seconds depending on your microwave strength. I have a tiny microwave, and "baked" mine for 1:05 to perfection. They were molten inside and the chocolate bar melted. PERFECTION!
Remove the cakes from their baking dishes and plate together. Sprinkle with love dust (confectioners sweetener) and garnish with two strawberries cut into heart shapes. Serve with two spoons.
