Are you on a diet or just looking for healthy cakes? Healthy cakes are hard to find since cakes are high in sugars and fat and are on the list of “cannot have” during diets or with some health issues. However, there are healthy, wholesome, and creative cakes that will soothe your craving for sweets and for when you need a birthday cake.

You can order cakes online from CBD Cakes, just give them your cake requirements and have them bake and deliver the perfect cake for your diet. There are gluten-free cakes like Chockrock or Chocolate Mud Swirl that don’t look or sound gluten-free, but they are delicious and healthy. There is also a Vegan Chocolate Cake that will please your pallet. Ask for began banana cake or sensational (gluten-free vegan). You will be pleasantly surprised.

Almond flour chocolate cake

Order an almond flour chocolate cake that is sweetened with honey. There are only a few ingredients in this cake, but everyone will love its rich chocolate taste from cocoa powder (not Dutch-processed cocoa powder, please).

Ispanakli Kek

If you are not a chocolate fan, try a Turkish cake called Ispanakli Kek made with spinach, nature’s vitamin storehouse. Spinach contains vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin K, vitamin B2, vitamin C, vitamin E, folate, manganese, copper, and calcium. What could be healthier? Spinach Cake is a lovely green color, but you cannot tell it’s made for spinach. The best news? A slice of Spinach Cake is only 150 calories and has just 1g of sugar.

Banana Bread Coffee Cake

Another choice for your healthy diet would be cream cheese banana bread coffee cake. Sounds scrumptious and is full of chocolate chips (use carob chips for a healthier option) and walnuts. This cake has a creamy cream cheese filling and is topped with cinnamon walnut streusel. 

Chocolate zucchini cake

Why don’t you try chocolate zucchini cake? There is no refined sugar in this cake and no oil. This cake is healthy, rich, chocolatey, vegan, gluten, free, refined sugar-free and has no oil. The cake is held together with the zucchini, and the frosting is sweet potatoes. The best part is for your diet. Each slice contains only 393 kcal.

Lemon poppy seed cake

Next, for breakfast, try a flourless lemon poppy seed cake. This cake has a subtle taste of citrus from lemon. The filling is full of poppy seeds, and the cake is gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and vegan, and it can be made keto, which makes it a good cake for your diet. There are only 186 kcal in each slice, 30 g of carbs, 2 g of protein, potassium, fiber, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. 

Licensed nutritionists say that baking healthy cakes for diets is possible even if you don’t want to make a gluten-free or vegan cake. Making healthy cakes is all in the quality of ingredients. Mill your flour and use only natural, whole ingredients. A blended banana or honey for the sweeteners is perfect but use them in moderation. Remember that if you use freshly milled wheat, you will need to add more water since the dough made with freshly milled flour is softer than white flour dough.
