Easy (and Healthy-ish) Almond Flour Cake Recipes

Many of these recipes are gluten-free, and several are also paleo or refined-sugar-free. Despite their healthier ingredients, they are no less indulgent. 

Whether you prefer chocolate or fruity flavors, there’s an almond flour cake recipe you’ll love. 

So grab your whisk and get to baking! I’m ready to indulge in a guilt-free slice of heaven. Are you?

After all, life is too short to say no to dessert!

1. Gluten-Free Almond Flour Chocolate Cake 

Who says gluten-free dessert can’t be delicious? Certainly not me. 

This cake is a dream team of flavors. Nutty almond flour and decadent sweet chocolate work together in perfect harmony. 

And don’t get me started on the texture. Every bite is moist, dense, and just the right amount of crumbly.

If you’re allergic to almonds, no worries! You can swap the almond flour for coconut flour or another gluten-free alternative.

2. Peach Almond Flour Cake

This delicious dessert will have your taste buds tap-dancing with joy. 

Fresh peaches combined with the nutty flavor of almond flour create a heavenly taste. It’s summery, balanced, honeyed, and light. You won’t want to miss it! 

This cake is the perfect way to indulge. No matter where (or how) you eat it- alone or sharing with friends! 

Although… I would totally understand if you chose not to share. 

3. Almond Flour Red Velvet Sheet Cake 

Move over, boring vanilla cake! This healthy red velvet cake is here to steal the show.

Red velvet cake has a bad reputation for being dry and bland. Not this version. It’s nutty and just the right amount of sweetness, with a hint of chocolate.

And let’s not forget the tangy cream cheese frosting! This frosting is the perfect balance to the chocolatey base. It’s like a dance party in your mouth!

If you want a sure-fire, crowd-pleasing cake, you found it! 

4. Almond Flour Strawberry and Yogurt Cake

Almonds bring a subtle nuttiness to the table, while sweet strawberries add a fruity pop. Doesn’t that sound delicious?!

Top it off with yogurt and enjoy how everything blends together. It’s like a flavor symphony.

Serve it up for breakfast, as a snack, or dessert – it’s versatile like that.

5. Almond Flour Carrot Cake 

This healthy carrot cake is a deliciously tempting treat! 

The almond flour provides a subtle toastiness that perfectly complements the sweetness of the carrots. 

Toss in some cinnamon and nutmeg, and you have a dessert begging to be devoured.

I like to have a slice with a hot cup of tea. It is the ideal mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Psst… it also makes a pretty fabulous breakfast!

But if carrots aren’t your thing, try substituting them with apples or zucchini. 

6. Honey Lemon Almond Flour Cake

Every bite of this cake will set off flavor fireworks in your mouth. 

With ingredients like honey, lemon zest, and almond flour, this is the ultimate summer treat.  

The lemon is tangy and acidic- an exquisite counterpoint to the syrupy honey. Add in the subtle nuttiness of almond flour, and everything ties together beautifully. 

Plus, its fluffy texture makes this cake perfect for any occasion. 

Serve it with a dollop of fresh whipped cream for the ultimate dessert experience.

7. Mocha Coffee Cake with Almond Flour 

Picture this – a perfectly baked mocha coffee cake packed with flavor. Better yet, it’s gluten-and-guilt-free!

Not to mention, this tasty treat is also vegan. But don’t hold that against it (joking!).

Because this nutty, coffee-and-chocolate-flavored cake is dang decadent. 

Honestly, I could go on and on about this mouth-watering recipe.

But don’t take my word for it. The proof is in the pudding. Well, cake. 

And if you’re looking for an almond flour substitute, try coconut or oat flour. These flours work well as a substitute for any of the recipes on this list. 

8. Italian Orange Ricotta Cake

This cake WORKS in so many ways. It pairs the tangy sweetness of orange with the rich creaminess of the ricotta. 

Both the almond flour and ricotta cheese have notes of nuttiness. So, they are a match made in flavor heaven.

And the brightness of oranges pops against that backdrop irresistibly. 

If you don’t have any oranges on hand, no worries. You can substitute them with lemons or blood oranges for a fun twist.

9. Almond Cardamom Sponge Cake

Buckle up, people. I’m about to dish on a tried-and-true crowd-pleaser. 

The warm flavors of almond and cardamom create a symphony of succulence. Trust me, it will leave you speechless. 

Serve it at your next brunch or dinner party, and watch your guests swoon.

10. Almond Rhubarb Cake

If you’ve never known the deliciousness of rhubarb, this cake might not sound very appealing. 

But trust me on this one. The flavor is so unique it will become a regular part of your recipe rotation. 

The tartness of the rhubarb is balanced flawlessly by the sweetness of the almond base.

It’s almost like it’s choreographed. And it will leave your taste buds dancing! 

It makes for the perfect breakfast pastry substitute if you have any leftovers. (Unlikely. This stuff goes fast!)
