Low Carb Chocolate Cake 

It is easy to make your own nut flour of almonds (good essential fatty acids source) or macadamia (good fat-to-carb ratio.) Just mill them in a coffee grinder or food processor. 

4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar equivalent
1 cup almonds, coarsely chopped
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbs almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder

Separate egg whites from yolks. In a blender, blend the whites and sweetener. Continuing blending, add the ingredients in this order: nuts, vanilla, flour, soda, yolks, and cocoa, blend for 2 minutes more. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Serving size = 1/6. About 3.5 g carb
Fat Burning Index™ = 1.90*

* To be a fat burning food, it should have Fat Burning Index™ above 1.5. These foods don't require counting carb grams or portion control even on a low carb diet.
