  • 8 oz. ramekins


Strawberry Sauce:

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • Pinch of salt

Lava Cake:

  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil plus more for greasing
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp dark cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp almond flour
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour


  • 2 fresh strawberries
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar


  • In a small saucepan, add frozen strawberries, water, honey and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for an additional 10-12 minutes, occasionally mashing strawberries to break them down into a thick mixture.
  • Remove strawberry sauce from heat. Let cool while cakes are prepared.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Grease ramekins with coconut oil and set aside.
  • Add chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each until completely melted and smooth. Set melted chocolate aside to cool.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk eggs. Add salt, vanilla, maple syrup, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, and melted chocolate; mix until smooth. Fold in the flour and blend until well combined.
  • Evenly pour the cake batter into two 8-ounce ramekins and bake for 12-14 minutes until the sides are set and center remains gooey.
  • Remove cakes from oven and set aside to cool on a rack for 10 minutes.
  • Run a sharp knife around the edge of ramekins to loosen cakes, then turn over onto dessert plates, tapping the bottom of the ramekin to release the cakes.
  • Spoon strawberry sauce over the top of each cake, dust with powdered sugar, and serve warm.
