Chocolate Souffles - Low Carb
These are so easy to make and absolutely delicious. They take minutes to make, so perfect when you want a higher protein, low-carb treat. Serve with Greek yoghurt for a bigger protein hit, or cream if you want to add more fat.
2 Large eggs, separated
10-15g erythritol sweetener
20g sugar-free cocoa powder
Nutritional value for 1 large ramekin

Preheat oven to 180c
Whisk the egg white until stiff.
In another bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sweetener and the cocoa until light and fluffy.
Place one spoon of egg white into the egg yolk mix and combine to help slacken. Carefully place the egg yolk mixture into the remaining egg white and fold very carefully until combined. Do not overmix as you don't want to knock out the air or they won't rise.
Place in greased ramekin dishes. This mixture makes 2 large or 4 small ramekins.
Place in the oven for 12-14 minutes. Serve immediately.
You can eat these cold, but they will shrink and are more like a fat-free sponge.
Note, for an extra protein hit, you can add a small amount of chocolate protein powder to the egg yolk mix.
