3-Ingredients Honey Almond Cakes


These delicious sweet almond cakes are my go to recipe when I need to fix a healthy snack in no time.

They can literally be whipped up in 5 minutes (if using a food processor), and I haven’t yet met a person who doesn’t love them.

I say they’re made with 3 ingredients only, although to be honest you need 5, but the main elements are just eggs, almond flour and honey (+ a tiny bit of baking soda and vanilla extract).

Apart from people suffering from a nut allergy, these easy cakes are a perfect treat for anyone because they’re:

  • Refined sugar-free
  • Gluten-free
  • Protein-rich
  • Paleo
  • Dairy-free
  • Can be made vegan if using maple syrup

They’re also easily transportable and will keep good in your child’s backpack, making them a perfect snack for school.

They’ve made it to many of my kids’ birthday parties topped with some whipped (coconut) cream and berries or just plain and mess-free for smaller hands. Always a big hit!
