Craving a dessert that's rich, decadent, and mindful of your dietary considerations? Say hello to the flourless chocolate torte! This scrumptious treat is low-carb, keto-friendly, gluten-free, and doesn't require any special flours. 

– 5 large eggs – 12 ounces Llly’s chocolate bars chopped – ¾ cup unsalted butter cubed – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar – ½ cup Swerve confectioner’s plus more for topping if desired

01

Separate the eggs and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

02

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan. Place the chocolate and butter in a large glass bowl.

03

Microwave for 1 minute and stir. Continue to microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate and butter are melted. (You could also heat on top of a double broiler.)

04

Stir in the vanilla extract. Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg yolks for 5 minutes. Add the chocolate mixture and beat until combined.

05

In a clean bowl and with clean beaters, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar over medium speed until foamy.

06

Add the sweetener, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high to combine. Continue until stiff peaks form and all the Swerve is incorporated.

06

Using a spatula, fold a third of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture.

06

Once incorporated, fold in the remaining whites.

06

Transfer to the prepared pan. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. It will deflate as it cools - this is normal!

06

Remove the edge of the pan, and dust with more sugar if desired.
