Low Sugar Chocolate Cake – Diabetic Friendly Grain Free Chocolate Cake

A perfect low sugar chocolate cake recipe:) For those of you that have followed me for a while, you have probably noticed, I don’t bake much:) Baking isn’t quite my thing probably because most baking requires gobs and gobs of sugar!! But, this diabetic friendly grain free chocolate cake recipe will amaze you!

So I generally have avoided it and found other treats that I like that are somewhat low sugar and I eat them in moderation.  For example, I like ice cream and I’ll buy a high quality brand and just have a bite or two.  I also buy dark chocolate bars that are low in sugar and have one square of chocolate at a time.

But, I’m getting off the baking topic.  In my baking life, I have made 2 things regularly.  A flourless chocolate cake recipe I received from my good friend, Aubree, from college.  The second is the cheesecake recipe I received from my grandmother.  I only bake the cheesecake for Christmas and Thanksgiving sometimes.  So it isn’t a normal recipe that I’ve tried to remove the sugar.

However, the flourless chocolate cake, aka grain free chocolate cake aka diabetic friendly grain free chocolate cake, I make more often for my kids birthdays, half birthdays and sometimes just for fun!! The recipe originally had 1/2 cup of sugar (yep, gasp, white sugar which I normally don’t even have in the house).  But, over the years I’ve decreased the sugar to 1/4 cup of sugar.  But, still I can’t post a recipe that contains white sugar, I mean it’s pretty much the worst food a diabetic can eat.

So, I tried a few variations and came up with one that includes Truvia which is stevia and erythritol (all natural) that was the reason I liked this variation and it turned out SPECTACULAR!!

This variation turned out a little creamier than the original and it was almost like a mousse in the middle!! AND it’s super chocolatey!!

It also only has a few ingredients, so to me it’s a total win!!

One other thing I bake is my breakfast bars, they are grain free & low carb and very filling:) I make them ahead and then have breakfast for the week ready to go.  Here’s the recipe: Nut Breakfast Bars
