  1. In a small bowl, add the yeast, inulin and warm water, mix well. Set aside to proof.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the almond flour, sweetener, xanthan gum, and baking powder. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Place the mozzarella and cream cheese into a nonstick saucepan and place over low heat until completely melted.
  4. Pour the cheese mixture into the almond flour mix, add the proofed yeast, and the egg. Mix until fully combined, this step is made easier by putting on some foodsafe gloves and mixing by hand.
  5. Set aside the dough to rest while you make the filling.
  6. Place a heatproof bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water and add the chocolate and butter, heat until about 80% melted, then add the powdered sweetener and cocoa powder. Mix into a thick paste, then set aside to cool.
  7. Roll the dough out between 2 sheets of parchment paper, into a rectangle shape 7mm/0.25in thick. Spread the chocolate paste evenly over the dough.
  8. Roll the dough into a scroll, from one long side to the other. Squeeze tightly to ensure that the edge is sealed, then cut the log in half lengthwise down the centre.
  9. Braid the two pieces together and place into a lined loaf pan. Set aside in a warm place to proof for 30 minutes.
  10. Preheat your oven to 160C/320F.
  11. Bake your loaf for 30-40 minutes, until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  12. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the pan for 20 minutes before turning out onto a cake rack to cool completely.
