Chocolate Almond Flour Fudge Cake is a chocolate lover's dream! Super fudgy on the inside and topped with a silky "milk" chocolate frosting. A grain and dairy-free cake you'll want to make over and over again. Gluten Free + Paleo
Over the years, many of you have asked for healthy cake recipes and I've resisted. I'm not much of a cake person. In fact, I don't love sweets all that much. Since I did my sugar detox a few years ago, I no longer crave them and I'm extremely sensitive to sugar.
Too much and I feel sick. That's why many of my recipes are always lower in sugar. P.S. that reaction is more normal. Most people don't realize it because there's so much hidden sugar in our foods these days they assume that amount of sweetness is normal, but it's not.
So, if you're looking for a cleaner version of a chocolate cake, then Paleo Chocolate Almond Flour Fudge Cake is for you!
Paleo Chocolate Almond Flour Fudge Cake
This dairy free chocolate cake is lightly sweetened with coconut sugar. I say "lightly" because coconut sugar is shown to have a lower glycemic response than other sugars. The cake is also huge. It makes a lot of servings so be prepared to share or freeze!
I have not tried other substitutions with this healthy chocolate cake recipe. Hey, there's only so much cake a girl can eat and frankly, it's super overwhelming the number of substitutions I'm asked about for my recipes on a daily basis.
It's just not physically possible to test and try every possible variation out there.
Throughout my journey with healthy eating, I've learned that I have to experiment to get recipes that are delicious, gluten free and EASY to make. So don't be afraid to experiment yourself! If you do, leave a comment below as this will help others.
