Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 0 3/4 cup, halves Pecans
  • 4 oz Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Squares
  • 0 1/3 cup Tap Water
  • 0 1/3 cup Canola Vegetable Oil
  • 0 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder (Unsweetened)
  • 0 1/4 cup Whole Grain Soy Flour
  • 2 1/4 cup Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 12 large Egg (Whole)
  • 2 tsp Ginger (Ground)
  • 0 1/4 tsp Cream Of Tartar


  1. Preheat over to 350°F. Toast pecans in an even layer on a cookie sheet for 8 minutes. Cool, coarsely chop the pecans and set aside.
  2. Lower oven to 325°F. Grease the bottom of a 10-inch tube pan, and line with parchment or waxed paper.
  3. Place chocolate and the water in a microwavable bowl; microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes, until chocolate is melted, checking at 1-minute intervals. Stir until smooth, cool to lukewarm, then stir in oil; set aside.
  4. In a food processor, pulse pecans, cocoa powder and soy flour until pecans are finely ground. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks with cup sugar substitute on high speed with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Stir in melted chocolate, pecan mixture and ginger.
  5. In another large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium-high speed with an electric mixer, until frothy. Gradually add remaining sugar substitute, beating until stiff peaks form. With a rubber spatula, fold one-third of the meringue into the yolk mixture to lighten; fold in the remaining meringue until just combined.
  6. Pour batter evenly in prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Allow cake to cool for 30 minutes before removing from pan.
  7. To remove: Run a knife around the inner and outer rim of cake, place a wire rack or plate over pan, and invert. Remove pan, and peel off paper. Cool completely before cutting into 16 servings.
