Healthy Birthday Cake

No added sugar (aside from whole fruit), no dairy, no oil, gluten/grain free.

Yesterday was my birthday! I enjoyed a *healthy* birthday cake along with no sugar added coconut milk ice cream

I am so grateful I got to celebrate my birthday with people I love without compromising my commitment to healthy eating. I get to have all the beautiful memories of a wonderful birthday.

I don’t have to deal with the negative physical effects of, or guilt about, eating sugary/refined flour cake/dessert. I don’t have to feel the emotional pain of deprivation.

This HEALTHY cake is absolutely delicious. Giving up added sugar and refined foods opens up a world of healthier options for you.

Recipe below. I linked some of the products I used. It makes 12 servings.

Here is the recipe:

Ingeredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line your chosen pan either with parchment paper or non stick spray. I sprayed a heart-shaped pan with organic olive oil.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, add bananas, vanilla, and almond butter. Mix until well combined and smooth.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, to the mixer. With mixer on medium-low speed, add coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  4. Gently fold in chocolate chips and chopped pecans.
  5. Pour batter into pan and smooth it. Bake it ~35 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before serving.
  7. If you like, serve it with mixed berries!
