  • 1 tsp Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 9 tsp Erythritol
  • 4 tbsp Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
  • 2 large Egg Yolk
  • 0 1/2 fl oz Tap Water
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 0 3/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 0 1/8 tbsp Red or Cayenne Pepper
  • 3 large Egg White
  • 0 1/24 pinch Stevia


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  Grease the bottom and up the sides of a 2-cup deep souffle dish with butter and sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons granular sugar substitute (erythritol) to coat all buttered areas.  Set aside.  
  2. Melt the chocolate in a small bowl in a microwave at 30 second intervals until melted through.  Do not overheat and stir between intervals.  
  3. In a medium bowl whisk 2 egg yolks with 1 tablespoon warm water, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (add more if more spice is desired).  Add the melted chocolate and whisk until incorporated and smooth.  Set aside.  
  4. In a medium bowl whip the egg whites with 2 1/2 tablespoons (the remaining 6 1/2 teaspoons) granular sugar substitute (erythritol) and a large pinch of pure stevia to stiff peaks.  Whisk a few tablespoons of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture, then quickly but gently fold in the remaining egg whites until a lighter airy mixture results and all ingredients are blended (do not over blend or you will deflate the egg whites).  
  5. Pour into the souffle dish and bake on a sheet pan for 15-18 minutes.  The souffle will rise over the top of the dish and it should appear slightly jiggly but not wet in the center when shaken.  Serve immediately.
