  • I usually beat my egg whites first, transfer them to a cold bowl, and then clean my mixer and start the recipe. Otherwise, if you being in your mixer, you will have to transfer the chocolate mixture to a bowl. Having the egg whites ready makes it easier.
  • Melt chocolate in double boiler. I usually put a stainless bowl over a saucepan that has 1 inch of water and put water on simmer. You can also microwave the chocolate.
  • Beat Butter and half of the sugar together until fluffy.
  • Add egg yolks.
  • Add the melted chocolate.
  • Add vanilla.
  • Add the ground almond meal.
  • Whip egg whites until stiff with the rest of the sugar (swerve).
  • Fold in the egg whites.
  • Bake at 165 C or 325 F for 50 minutes.
