This is the low carb peanut butter dessert of your dreams! Ooey gooey grain-free peanut butter lava cake. Get it while it’s hot!
Stop the presses! Hold the phones! Call in reinforcements! Stop, stop, stop whatever you are doing right now and run to your kitchen to make these low carb molten peanut butter lava cakes. Because these are, without question, every peanut butter lover’s dream dessert. Warm and rich and gooey and melty, they just ooze peanut butter sweetness all over your plate. It will be love at first bite, I promise you. And they are even more heavenly with a good drizzle of my low carb chocolate sauce on top.
If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen a sneak peek of these last week. I couldn’t help myself, I had to get a little video of the gooey insides of these individual cakes oozing out all over the plate. I was so utterly delighted with myself when these worked out so well and I wanted to share them right away. Alas, it takes longer than that to edit photos and write up recipes for a blog post. So I settled for a little teaser, with the promise that the real deal wouldn’t be far behind.
So here they are. I was inspired by a fellow blogger’s post for Double Peanut Butter Lava Cakes on Wishes & Dishes. Of course, her version was made with peanut butter chips, sugar and flour so I had to think long and hard about how I was going to make them over. The funny part is that my first experiment turned out perfectly from the start but I wasn’t ready to get photos at that point, as I had whipped them up after dinner. I made them again a few days later but I accidentally under-baked them and I think I may have used extra large eggs instead of the standard large. The third time I tried them, I over-baked them because I was worried about under-baking them. It was the fourth time that I got it just right and was able to not only get gorgeous photos but some fun video as well.
Rest assured, however, that it won’t be the last time I make them. If I had my way, I’d make them every day. Peanut butter rules!
Oh, did you want to see that little video clip of this ooey, gooey delight???
