Gluten-Free, Vegan Almond Cake (Sugar-Free, too!)

Finding zen moments in my kitchen sometimes calls for finding alternatives to the sugar-laden desserts I love so much. Finding balance (for me) means balance in all things, including the amount of sugar in a dessert! Finding joy and peace in the moment as well as balancing my love of sugar with healthy alternatives, and this “Free Cake” nails it. Gluten-Free. Dairy/Animal-Free. Sugar-Free. Guilt-Free!

the “Free” Cake: GF, DF/V, SF Almond Cake

A healthier alternative, this low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free/vegan, (sugar-free) Almond Cake is a delicious treat, perfect for when you want a slightly sweet, light (and easy!) dessert. (If you aren’t looking for the FREE version, the normal sugar version is pretty awesome, too!)

Add some fresh raspberries, with a slather of sugar-free, vegan raspberry jam, and a sprinkle of confectioners sugar (or with a sugar-free confectioners sugar like Swerve, or Monk Fruit & Erythritol), and a dollop of fresh whipped coconut cream or dairy whipped cream. Either way you make it (with or without sugar) it’s a tasty treat!

I used Monk Fruit sweetener I found for a great price at the local Grocery Outlet, and I’ve also found Erythritol and other sugar alternatives on Amazon if you’re wondering where to get them. Whichever brand you use, you’ll want to use one that is a direct replacement for the cup of sugar listed (1:1).

Delicious. Light. Tasty. Dress it up, or keep it plain and simple. With sugar or without, I hope you find the balance in your life and this little FREE cake gives you a healthier option for enjoying a little sweet treat.
