A good keto chocolate cake recipe can make you forget you’re not eating a “diet” version of an old favorite. Which, to me, is perfect for when you’re having one of “those days” and don’t really feel like being keto-friendly. 

You know, “those days” when you just need something sinful to get you out of a funk or you’re tired of the same-old keto-friendly foods. 

It’s still keto-friendly, but it doesn’t feel keto-friendly. Catch my drift? 

I’ve gathered 10 5-star keto chocolate cake recipes I’m adding to my wishlist to maybe try this month and decided to share the goods with ya.
