This Sugar Free Keto Low Carb Chocolate Soufflé is an easy and delicious flourless, gluten free, dairy free and nut free dessert!
A soufflé is a dish originating in France made with egg yolks and egg whites and a few other ingredients depending on if you’re making something savory or sweet. A soufflé is often made in individual ramekins or a round casserole dish, but todays recipe is a soufflé made in a skillet giving it a bit of a crispier outer edge. Using a smaller dish will provide a higher lift to the soufflé if you prefer, but using a skillet is a great way for enjoying with guests and everyone just grabbing a spoon!
No flours or nut flours are needed for this soufflé. Just 8 ingredients and most of them are probably items you already have on hand in your ketogenic pantry.
