  • ¼ cup allulose granulated
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream


  • Place the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Add the bowl over a pan with a little boiling water. Simmer on a medium heat until melted.
  • In a clean mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and vanilla for 2 minutes until super fluffy.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together (almond flour, allulose and salt).
  • Add the ⅓ cup butter and dry ingredients to the eggs and whisk again to combine.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and whisk once more to combine. Set aside.
  • Grease six, 3 x 2 inch or (8cm x 4cm) ramekins with butter. 


  • Place the granulated allulose and butter in a pan. Stir over a medium/ low heat with a spatula, about 2 - 2.5 minutes, until golden. If the butter separates, take off the heat and stir vigorously to combine.
  • Slowly add the cream while stirring. The mix will bubble so be careful. Cook for about 2 minutes on medium/ low until the caramel starts to thicken and coats the back of a spoon.
  • Remove from the heat. Fill each ramekin with just under ⅓ cup of batter. Add just under 1 tablespoon of caramel to the center. Top with rest of batter.

Oven Method

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Place the ramekins on a baking tray and bake in oven for 9 minutes for a molten center. The middle should still have a slight wobble when you remove from the oven. Be careful not to over bake or the middle will set.
  • Turn upside down onto plate and serve with keto ice cream.

Instant Pot Method

  • Place the ramekins on steam rack into the bottom of the Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water. (If putting 6 in at once you can stack in a pyramid).
  • Secure the lid on the Instant Pot with the valve sealed. Set the timer for 6 minutes high. 
  • Immediately quick release the pressure and remove ramekins from Instant Pot using a tea-towel. Don’t let them sit in the instant pot or they will over cook.
  • Turn upside down onto plate and serve with keto ice cream.


  • Best fresh for a molten middle or Tupperware in the fridge for up to 3 days.
