It’s hard to believe this delicious Keto Chocolate Cake has no sugar! Free of gluten and full of healthy fats, it’s a decadent keto dessert!

Keto friends, I am about to blow your mind.

HOLY MOLY. I am not one to shy away from “real” chocolate cake like the dairy free chocolate cake or avocado chocolate cake, with all it’s sugary glory….but this?


There are times when you want a small bite of cake and then you make an easy low carb keto mug cake….but then other times (like Valentine’s Day!) you need something with more PIZAZZ.

And this beautiful sweet-without-sugar treat is about to rock your taste buds.

Why this is the BEST Keto Chocolate Cake Recipe 

If you or someone you’re close to is following a keto eating plan, then you know that it can sometimes be tricky to find delicious, healthy, filling recipes to make and enjoy! One thing that you should NOT have to give up when eating Keto, in my opinion, is DESSERT! You can indulge in Keto Snickerdoodles, Keto Pecan Pie, and now this Low Carb Keto Chocolate Cake I have for you today. It’s sweet, it’s satisfying, it’s perfectly tender, and it’s HEALTHY! Loaded with protein thanks to the eggs and almond flour, this chocolate cake is going to blow your mind and your taste buds!

What makes this recipe Keto?

If you’re new to the Keto way of eating, here’s a bit of an overview of what kinds of food it includes. Keto is all about consuming high amounts of healthy fats and proteins and low amounts of carbohydrates and sugars. This chocolate keto cake is baked with 4 eggs and also uses almond flour instead of regular flour, which is packed with protein. It also includes Swerve sweetener which has no sugar in it, and avocado oil instead of butter. It’s the perfect keto treat! 

Ingredients Needed

To make this low carb keto chocolate cake, you’ll need a handful of healthy ingredients from the fridge and pantry. Isn’t it just the BEST when you’re eating a dessert that’s not only indulgent and satisfying, but also made with wholesome ingredients that are good for your body? There really can’t be a better dessert situation! Here’s what you’ll need before you get baking:

How to make the BEST Keto Chocolate Cake


Turn on the oven and let it heat up while you work. Line the bottoms of two round cake pans and rub the sides with oil. 


To a large bowl, add all the ingredients up to the eggs, but not including them. Whisk until well combined. Add in the eggs, oil and vanilla and continue whisking until everything is smooth. Pour in the boiling water and whisk again until everything is well incorporated.


Divide your batter in between the two cake pans and pop them in the oven. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 


Let the cakes cook COMPLETELY in the pans. Once cooled, frost with keto frosting, serve and DEVOUR!

Top Tips for Making Keto Chocolate Cake

Don’t skip the parchment paper: When preparing the pans for baking your cakes, I recommend using parchment paper to line the bottoms, then rubbing the sides with oil. This will ensure nothing gets stuck and the cake will be easy to remove from the pans.Weigh the flour: I have found that the BEST results in baking are achieved when the flour is weighed, so I recommend doing so for this recipe!Cool completely: Fight the temptation to frost and slice your cake before it’s completely cool. It’s important to make sure it is totally cool so that the cake doesn’t crumble when you slice it, and so that the frosting doesn’t melt off of it.
