Chocolate Pound Cake : Made with Coconut Flour : It's Low Carb

If you are looking for "an easy low carb coconut flour pound cake made with coconut flour and baked in a loaf pan" then look no further! "This simple low carb cake is great as a snack with a pat of butter or dressed up with ice cream... for some people, not being able to enjoy desserts and baked goods on any diet is a deal breaker. But low carbers have found ways to healthify some of their favourite recipes, making them diabetic friendly and healthy for weight-loss."

"Because coconut flour is used in this recipe, the net carbs are super low and perfect for those on a ketogenic diet. Another plus? Since the price of almond flour has steadily climbed higher, coconut flour is becoming the more economical choice."

Serves 12
2 net carbs per serving.
Dry Ingredients
3/4 cups (70 g) (Bob's Red Mill) Coconut Flour
1/2 cup (115 g) Sukrin 1 (or Swerve Granulated)
