In a medium saucepan, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, stevia, and salt. Whisk in the milk until well incorporated, making sure to scrape, the corners of the saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. Add in 1 oz of chocolate. Simmer for 2 minutes until the pudding has thickened slightly.

In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg, gradually beat 3/4 cup of the hot pudding into the egg, then whisk the egg mixture back into the pan and cook for 1 minute.
