Here are 9 of the Best Ever Healthy Clean Eating Cake Recipes. I have 9 clean eating cake recipes that people of all ages will enjoy! One thing I have discovered in writing blog posts all this time is that people love their cakes. Those of us that try to eat Clean are no different. I love my cakes too, but at least when I eat one of these cakes I feel like I’m eating a lot more healthy than if it wasn’t Clean. My kids love healthy cakes too, they’ve eaten clean for so long they don’t like foods that aren’t clean anymore.
I am so glad I eat Clean because it is so much healthier than eating all that processed food. I have learned a lot from reading a fellow bloggers website, whenever I have a question about whether a certain food is clean or not she is my go-to girl. Tiffany at The Gracious Pantry is awesome and she knows a lot about Clean Eating, so if you ever need to know if a certain food is Clean go to her website thegraciouspantry.com. If you can’t find what you’re looking for with this link, do what I do and just google something like “is brown sugar clean eating” and The Gracious Pantry website should be one of the top sites that come up and your answer should be right there.
I can tell you right now that brown sugar is NOT clean eating and neither is low fat milk. I have found many many recipes, I’m talking hundreds that claim to be Clean Eating that call for brown sugar and low fat milk. Now some people might include brown sugar and low fat milk in their clean eating diet, but I don’t. I know that people you are strict clean eaters do not eat brown sugar and low-fat milk. Do you know that all brown sugar is, is regular sugar with molasses added to give it the brown color. It may be a tiny bit more healthy but not much and it isn’t clean.
A FEW OF THESE RECIPES CALL FOR LOW-FAT MILK. SINCE IT IS SO EASY TO SUBSTITUTE WHOLE MILK OR RAW MILK BECAUSE THE MEASUREMENTS WILL ALWAYS BE THE SAME. PLEASE ALWAYS SUBSTITUTE WHOLE MILK IN THESE RECIPES WHEN THEY CALL FOR LOW-FAT MILK. IF A RECIPE JUST SAYS “MILK”, ALWAYS USE WHOLE MILK RAW OR NOT. UNLESS YOU ARE NOT A STRICT CLEAN EATER.

9 of the Best Ever Healthy Clean Eating Cake Recipes
1. Slow Cooker Molten Lava Cake – Clean Eating Recipes
This is really easy but the best part is the surprise “magic” sauce this creates. The ooey gooey center that erupts when you cut into it is so much fun. It goes so well with ice cream! I definitely recommend you eat it hot.
2. Orange, Almond & Ginger Spelt Celebration Cake – The Whimsical Wife
This is the perfect cake for a celebration such as a birthday, anniversary, baby shower or mother’s day. It isn’t super sweet but is still really really good. It reminds me of a spice cake with a subtle hint of orange. The ginger and cinnamon flavors will leave you satisfied for a long time.
3. Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting – Amy’s Healthy Baking
This reminds me of the carrot cake I love so much. Instead of carrots adding moisture and flavor the spiced pumpkin adds the flavor and moisture. The cream cheese frosting adds so much to the flavor of this cake. You won’t have leftovers but if you do they will keep in the refrigerator for several days. Nobody will ever know this is healthy.
4. Cranberry Crumb Coffee Cake – Amy’s Healthy Baking
The nice thick layer of streusel on the top of this is always the best part. But this coffee cake is different with the juicy tangy flavor of the cranberries. It’s meant to be eaten for breakfast but who says you can’t eat this any time you want. I like it served warm with melted butter on top. It’s perfect for Christmas or Thanksgiving.
5. Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Frosting – Simply Clean and Fit
I had no idea a healthy cake could take so good. Vanilla with chocolate frosting is a classic and would be good for any occasion. Imagine this cake covered with a whole bunch of birthday candles. You might have to double the recipe though to have a nice two layer cake.
6. Black Forest Cake – Win Win Food
This is a decadent combination of a chocolate moist cake with a sour cherry filling and scrumptious chocolate frosting. The cherry filling helps create a balance of sour and sweet and the frosting is to die for. I love the bake with spelt flour which makes this more healthy and so do the chia seeds and avocado which add a good amount of protein.
7. Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Crazy Cake – The Gracious Pantry
Those store bought cakes with the frosting as thick as the cake are something I will never eat again. I feel sick just thinking about all that sugar. Give me a nice solid healthy cake any day. This is soft and a little bit spongy like a store bought cake. It’s also a little bit dense almost like the consistency of a brownie. It would taste delicious with some homemade ice cream.
8. Greek Yogurt Cranberry Orange Pound Cake – Amy’s Healthy Baking
Whole Wheat Flour – Orange Zest – Greek Yogurt – Milk – Cranberries
This is an easy recipe for a pound cake. It’s full of flavor and it’s full of pretty red cranberries. It’s guilt free and secretly healthy. It doesn’t have any refined sugar or flour so you can make it more often. Healthy really is better.
9. 4th of July Watermelon Cake – The Gracious Pantry
Organic Whipping Cream – Honey – Watermelon – Strawberries – Blueberries
Here is a delightful fresh surprise of a cake. Imagine the look on peoples faces when you cut into this at a party. I really don’t like frosting so when I saw that this is frosted with whip cream, I yelped for joy. Finally something I can eat because it doesn’t have any gluten and you could easily not use the honey so it wouldn’t have any sugar either. A delight to someone on a gluten-free sugar-free diet like me. You wouldn’t have to heat up the house by turning on the oven either plus it can be made in 20 minutes.
Pick a cake recipe and whip it up for dessert tonight. Any of these are bound to satisfy even the heartiest appetite.
