“So, I can no longer eat those tasty, creamy and yummy cakes?”

“Not even for once have I had a thought that there will be something that would stop me from taking my favourite cake

These and many more have I heard from individuals who are embittered about the fact that they can no longer consume cakes due to certain health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, obesity etc.

It is no longer news that humans of all ages are pretty conscious of their sugar intake these days. But, does that mean we will no longer be able to eat these creamy, tasty and outstandingly delicious cakes? NO!

Good news! The fact that you are diabetic or obese does not necessarily mean you can no longer have a bite of that beautifully designed and tasty cake specially made for you on that outstanding occasion of yours. Instead of avoiding cakes completely just because of these health issues, there’s a range of sugarless cakes you can opt for that will be just perfect for your health such as

  • Pirate cake from burnt apple

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Frosting:

  • 1 cup organic cream
  • Optional (1 tablespoon pure maple syrup)

Ingredients;

  • 1.5 Cups Coconut Milk
  • ½ cup soy or coconut creamer (if using soy, make sure it is organic and/or Non-gmo Project Verified)
  • 2 tsp agar powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional – a handful or more of spinach for color

Preparation;

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk milk and creamer.
  2. Sprinkle agar powder over the top and whisk vigorously until combined, making sure not to leave any clumps.
  3. Turn the stove up to medium heat and cook until the mixture comes to a full boil, stirring gently from time to time.
  4. Remove mixture from the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract.

  • Applesauce cupcakes

Ingredients;

  • ¾ cup coconut flour
  • 6 eggs
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a standard muffin tin with 12 parchment or silicone baking cups. Measure the coconut flour by scooping the flour directly from the container, then using the back of a knife sweep off the excess, creating a level measurement. It’s imperative that you measure the coconut flour correctly, as even an extra teaspoon can throw off the recipe!
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and use a whisk to break up any lumps, mixing well until a thick and uniform batter is created.
  3. Divide the batter into the 12 muffin cups, and then bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Frost with coconut whipped cream, or another topping of choice.
  5. Store them in a sealed container in the fridge for up to one week.
  6. Remove from the fridge 3 hours before serving to bring them back to room temperature.
  7. If you want to make them ahead of time, they can even be frozen and then thawed in the fridge overnight. Be sure to frost them just before serving, for best results.
