There are so many incredible things to celebrate in May such as Mother’s Day, graduations or maybe even a family members birthday! Everyone loves a beautiful and delicious cake at celebrations, but not all sweets are created equal. I want you to enjoy these moments to the fullest without having to question the ingredients in what you are eating. This is why I’m sharing with you this incredible Almond Flour Lemon Cake that is made with real ingredients and is also dairy-free and gluten-free!
This cake is so simple to make and full of fresh, lemony flavor! It also contains fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals for a guilt-free treat! It can be made the night before or the day of for whatever fits best with your plans!
Health Benefits Of Ingredients:
Almond flour is a great gluten-free substitute in baking. Almonds contain vitamin E, protein and fiber! Vitamin E is essential for skin and eye health. The prebiotic fiber found in almonds feed your healthy gut bacteria, which aids in overall digestion!
Did you know that one lemon contains about 50% of your reference daily intake of vitamin C! While this is great for immunity, it is also important for reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Vitamin C is also important for iron absorption in non-heme plant sources!
100% pure maple syrup is a natural sweetener that comes from the sap of maple trees. It contains vitamins and minerals such as manganese, riboflavin, calcium, thiamin, potassium and copper. When used in moderation, maple syrup can be a great sweetener in a healthy diet.
