Ingredients:

  • 100g Coconut Oil (0g carbs)
  • 1/4 cup (50g) Natvia Sweetener (0g carbs)
  • 3 tsp Cinnamon (3g carbs)
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg (1g carbs)
  • 1 tsp Almond Essence (1g carbs)
  • 4 Large Eggs (3g carbs)
  • 200g Almond Meal (10g carbs)
  • 60g Crushed Almonds (2g carbs)
  • Zest of 1 Orange (~13g) (2g carbs)
  • 15g Slivered Almonds on Top (1g carbs)

Directions:

  1. Mix together melted coconut oil and sweetener until fluffy
  2. Mix in cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond essence
  3. Mix in eggs one at a time, mixing between eggs
  4. Stir in the almond meal
  5. Stir in crushed almonds
  6. Stir in orange zest
  7. Pour / scrape into parchment paper lined 20cm / 8″ round cake pan, or a 21cm x 11cm (9″ x 5″) loaf tin
  8. Bake at 180C for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

Depending on the brands of ingredients that you choose then the entire cake comes out to 23g of carbs, or about 3 grams each if you cut the cake into eight slices. I use Woolworth’s brand Almond Meal, which is only 4.9 grams of carbs per 100 grams.
