Paleo Fondant au Chocolat et Cerises–For Two! (GF)
Paleo Fondant au Chocolat et Cerises recipe. A delicious gooey molten chocolate cake filled with cherries. So good, you’d never guess it was naturally dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, and Paleo.
I am sharing a very special recipe for a very special day! My 100th post!
I had debated when to share this recipe because it is THAT good. It’s my Paleo dessert secret weapon. And it’s so amazing that you would never guess that it is Paleo, Gluten-free, Grain-free, and Clean. OR that it has no flour or sugar in it.
This Paleo Fondant au Chocolat et Cerises is my all time favorite melty gooey chocolate dessert recipe… you have got to try it!
This was a recipe experiment that I came up with a few months ago. Let me apologize in advance for not sharing this with my fellow Paleo, Gluten-free, Clean eating friends.
But I hope to make up for that now that I am sharing this recipe. 🙂
One of my favorite desserts EVER is a fondant au chocolat.
You know, the French chocolate dessert that isn’t totally done in the middle and tastes like a better version of an undercooked brownie.
Well I wanted to make a Paleo fondant au chocolat.. an ooey gooey, melted brownie, chocolate lovers decadent dessert with cherries inside.
But a grain-free, dairy-free, healthier version.
It took me a few tries to get this recipe right, but it was worth the effort!
To be honest, this Paleo Fondant au Chocolat et Cerises recipe is so decadently delicious that the words “paleo”, “clean” or “healthy” will be the furthest thoughts from your mind.
It’s kind of hard to focus on anything but how delicious this is when you are eating it.
At least that’s the case for me. Every time that I make this recipe, and I’d say it’s been a good 20 times, my taste buds literally scream “OMG…melted ooey gooey chocolate… French fondant au chocolat… amazingness in a ramekin…”
The tastes take me back to eating a fondat au chocolat in a brasserie in France.
Not only is this dessert delicious, but it’s easy to make. You only need one bowl and a handful of ingredients.
Plus it only serves two, which is a great because you’d eat waaaay more of it if there was more than two ramekins around.
Though, I frequently double or triple the recipe when we have company.
I love eating these Paleo Fondant au Chocolat et Cerises with some whipped coconut cream or dairy-free ice-cream.
And even if you aren’t a paleo, grain-free, dairy-free, clean diet follower, these are worth making because…
1) they taste amazing and
2) they have extra protein in them from the almond flour.
* Note: you can make this recipe with raspberries, strawberries, or with no fruit at all!
I’ve tried it every which way and my absolute favorite is with cherries, but if you can’t find them or don’t want to use them, feel free to improvise! 🙂
Paleo Chocolate Cherry Cake/Fondant-- For Two!
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together. You can either do this in the microwave or over the stove top. If you are melting the chocolate in the microwave, make sure to mix it every 15-30 seconds. If you are melting the chocolate on the stove top, set a pot of water on the stove and heat on high until it boils and then lower the heat to medium. Then, put the coconut oil and chocolate into a bowl and place the boil over the boiling water and mix until the chocolate is melted.
- Mix the melted chocolate and coconut oil together.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg and maple syrup until it thickens a bit. Add the melted chocolate to the bowl and whisk until well mixed.
- Add the salt, vanilla, and almond flour to the chocolate mixture and whisk.
- Pour half of the mixture into one ramekin and the other half into another.
- Pit 12 cherries or get 12 frozen cherries out of the freezer.
- Gently push 6 cherries into the chocolate mixture of each ramekin.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes. The outside should look hard near the edges of the ramekin and a wet or less cooked in the middle. It should puff out and crack a bit.
- Let cool for 10 minutes.
