Gluten Free Molten Lava Cake

Gluten Free Molten Lava Cake

I am posting this recipe in honor of Valentines day. This molten lava cake is meant to be shared with someone you love (or a few people you love if you are being generous), be it your hubby, wife, friend, kids, neighbor, grandma, post office worker you get the picture. Part of making this recipe taste divine is making it with someone you love in mind. Pour a lot of love into your baking/cooking, I promise it will make what you are making taste better. I believe that if we cook in a hurry and frazzled it comes through in the meals we make. I will take my own advice as well, often times I start dinner late and it is a rush to get dinner done before my little boy is beside himself.

Back to this yummy dessert. This molten lava cake is gooey in the center and is best right from the oven hot. This is a rich and not overly sweet dessert. The best part is it is made in an individual size portions, so your loved one doesn’t eat most of it before you can swallow your first bite, believe me I am more aware of that pregnant.

This recipe has gone through a make over swapping ingredients for a healthier ones. The chia seeds add a ton of nutrition to the molten lava cakes but if you don’t have them on hand you can use an egg. If you want a little richer version, use the butter. If you don’t have to avoid gluten, you can substitute the gluten free flour for soft white wheat flour.

Health Benefits of Chia Seeds:
Chia seeds have more omega three fatty acids than a pound a half of salmon. Chia seeds have fifteen times more magnesium than broccoli, three times more iron than spinach, six times more calcium than milk, and two times more potassium than bananas. Two ounces of chia seeds gives you 560 mg of vitamin c!

    I tried these for the first time last week, and my whole family loves them! These were a total hit. And today I made them for the 3rd time! Thanks for a great recipe!

      Tiff, glad to hear your family loved them. Haha, I love that you made them three times. I do that too when I like something, I made this chocolate zuchhinni cake when our garden was overflowing with zuchinni, countless times. I think I almost over did it though by the last cake. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello.

    These look amazing! Can I ask – do these store well for a couple of days or they a must-eat-right-away treat? Thank you!

      Hi Katie! Not sure we always eat them right off. I am sure they would be fine stored for a few days, but it might not be as hot and gooey unless you heat them up again. Hope that helps!
