Your Weeknight Treat: A Gluten-Free Vanilla Cake

homemade gluten-free vanilla cake

A larger-than-life birthday party isn’t required to indulge in a multi-tiered confection. This is the case with our vanilla cake, which is not only gluten-free, but also perfectly captures the sweet flavour of the holiday season. This is accomplished with the addition of cinnamon, maple syrup (or honey) and Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Vanilla.

This dessert is a deliciously festive way to end your day or week. Treat yourself to a slice of vanilla cake the next time you can’t shake off a sugar craving.

  • ¾ cup coconut flour

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients of almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, Vanilla Collagen Creamer™ supplement, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil and coconut sugar until well-combined.
