Ingredients
Cake:
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¾ cup sweetener
  • ⅓ cup coconut flour
  • ⅓ cup unflavoured whey protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup heavy cream (or low-fat cream)
  • ¼ cup water
Frosting:
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup heavy cream (or low-fat cream)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sweetener
  • ¼ teaspoon chia seeds, soaked in ½ teaspoon hot water
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans
Directions
Cake:
  • Preheat oven to 325F and grease a 10×15 inch rimmed sheet pan very well.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt. Break up any clumps with the back of a fork.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, water, and cocoa powder, stirring until melted. Bring to a boil and then remove from heat. Add to the bowl.
  • Add eggs, vanilla extract, cream and water and stir until well combined. Spread in prepared baking pan.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until cake is set and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
Frosting:
  • In a cup, add 2 parts of hot water for every 1 part of chia seeds, then stir until the mixture becomes viscous. (You may need to add 10–15 minutes to your baking time to accommodate for using chia gel.)
  • In another medium saucepan, combine butter, cocoa powder, cream, and water. Bring to a simmer, stirring until smooth.
  • Stir in vanilla extract. Add powdered sweetener ½ a cup at a time, whisking vigorously to dissolve any clumps.
  • Whisk in chia gel.
  • Pour over warm cake and sprinkle with pecans. Let cool until frosting is set, about 1 hour.
