Healthy Gluten-Free Chocolate Soufflé

(Adapted from Busy But Healthy)


  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (choose Dutch processed cocoa for darker soufflés)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (you can sub in coconut or rice milk)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp egg whites (or 2 egg whites
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
Yield: 6 soufflés.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix cocoa and flour in a small saucepan on low heat. Add milk and maple syrup.
  3. Stir for 2 minutes to heat everything up, then stir in the vanilla.
  4. Beat egg whites in a bowl until stiff peaks form.
  5. Fold half of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture (carefully!) using a metal spoon. When everything is almost combined, fold in the other half of the egg whites, making sure not to let all the air out of those peaks!
  6. Prep your ramekins with cooking spray or oil. Spoon 1/6 of the mixture into each ramekin.
  7. Pop your soufflés in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Enjoy immediately!
Each of these tasty, single-serving soufflés has under 85 calories - less than 1/3 of a traditional soufflé! You can't beat that delicious number ;)
