Rich and deeply chocolatey, this cobbler is my low-carb take on a classic Southern recipe. It has a
crispy top layer and a gooey chocolate underlayer. It may not look very pretty in the pan, but then
some of the ugliest foods are also the tastiest. A little Whipped Cream will make it all the more appealing.

Yield: 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
1¼ cups blanched almond flour
⅓ cup granulated erythritol-based sweetener
¼ cup cocoa powder
3 tablespoons unflavored whey protein powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon espresso powder (optional)
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup heavy whipping cream
¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated erythritol-based sweetener
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
¾ cup hot water
You really need a granulated bulk sweetener for the top layer to get the right crunchiness. The
chocolate layer can be sweetened with your preferred sweetener.
- Preheat the oven to 325°F.
- Make the chocolate layer: In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, cocoa
powder, protein powder, baking powder, espresso powder (if using), and salt. Stir in the cream
- Make the topping: In a small bowl, whisk together the sweetener and cocoa powder. Sprinkle
evenly over the cobbler. Pour the hot water over the cobbler; do not stir.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until set in the middle. The cobbler will puff up while baking but will
sink back down by the end.
- Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes, then serve warm out of the baking dish.
DAIRY-FREE OPTION: Use collagen powder (or peptides) instead of whey protein powder,
coconut milk instead of cream, and coconut oil or avocado oil in place of the butter.
STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS: This cobbler will last in the fridge for up to a week. Rewarm it
gently in the oven or microwave.
TIP: Using a little coffee in a recipe such as this enhances the chocolate flavor. You can leave it
out, but just know that it doesn’t actually make the dessert taste like coffee or mocha.
