This recipe is my gluten-free molten lava cake recipe and it is delicious, made in the crock pot and very easy to make. Who doesn’t love a rich, warm double chocolate recipe? This recipe works well with the Clean Eating, Gluten-Free, and Dairy-Free lifestyle and for people not on a particular diet as well.
(It’s dairy-free as long as you don’t consider butter dairy, which I do not since it’s the fat portion of milk and doesn’t contain either lactose or casein. If you consider butter dairy, just substitute the butter with whatever butter substitute you like, such as a Vegan butter or coconut oil).
All people will love this if you so choose to make it for a crowd, family or party! Start it at the beginning of your cooking and let it do it’s magic while you cook and eat the rest of your dinner. Oat flour gives the perfect texture to this Clean Eating crockpot cake. It makes it rich, dense and moist.
If you are worried that oats may not be totally gluten-free make sure you use “certified gluten-free oats”. (Oats may cause a reaction in some celiacs. “While uncontaminated oats do not contain the same gluten as wheat, they contain a similar substance called avenin, which some individuals may not tolerate, however as a general rule, oat avenin is tolerated better than wheat or barley gluten”.)
Many of my recipes have ingredients that can be substituted or left out. I would say this recipe does not fall in that category. It was tricky to get it to work just right with the ingredients I have and I could not guarantee how well the recipe would turn out if you tried substitutions. Although, if you do try some substitutions and they work or don’t work, I would love to know, so please comment.
