Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Loaf

Keto chocolate hazelnut cake is moist and delicious. It has a rich chocolaty flavor from unsweetened cacao powder. 

The hazelnut flour and almond meal give the loaf a nutty flavor. The result is a delicious loaf filled with chocolate and hazelnut flavor. 

Additionally, this keto chocolate hazelnut loaf is also sugar-free. I used stevia to make the chocolate hazelnut loaf. However, you can use any granular sweetener you have on hand. 

What’s The Difference Between A Loaf Cake And A Regular Cake

Loaf cakes are baked in loaf pans. Additionally, loaf cakes have a denser texture. 

In contrast, regular cakes are baked in round or square pans. They also have a lighter texture. 

Are Hazelnuts Keto

Yes, hazelnuts are keto. They are a low-carb carb option that’s perfect for snacking and making cakes. One ounce of hazelnuts contains 4.7 grams of carbs and 1.9 net carbs. So you can enjoy them without worrying about eating too many carbs.

Can I Make Hazelnut Chocolate Loaf Without Xanthan Gum

Technically, you can make hazelnut chocolate loaf without xanthan gum. However, the hazelnut chocolate loaf may crumble. 

Because the hazelnut chocolate loaf does not contain gluten, it has nothing to bind and hold the loaf together. Xanthan gum helps bind the loaf together and prevents it from falling apart. 

If you do not like xanthan gum, you can use another gluten-free binder. Guar gum, flaxseeds, ground chia seeds, and psyllium husk powder are great substitutes for xanthan gum. 

How To Store Hazelnut Chocolate Loaf Cake

You can store the hazelnut chocolate loaf cake at room temperature for 1-2 days. Make sure you wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and place it into an airtight container. This will prevent the bread from drying out. 

You can also store the hazelnut chocolate loaf in the fridge for 3-5 days.
